    Client installations failing

    I got GMS working on Windows 2003 R2 (in IIS 5.0 compatibility mode), but
    i can't get the client installations in any way on the PDAs. I've tried
    OTA...

    when I try to goto:
    http://gmsserver.com/install

    to do a OTA installation it gives me the login screen, but once i login,
    it gives me a page not found with this in the address bar:

    http://gmsserver.com/pkgbuilder/src/PkgBuilder.jsp?u=O-ZK75eIVwM$


    AND i've tried to download a cradle install, it does the same thing... any
    ideas?

    Client installations failing

    I got it working - Turns out that even though I had hostname pointing to
    the sub that GMS was running at, it needs access to it via "localhost" on
    the server.

    Any way to change this behavior so I can have it pointing to just the host
    name?

    I'm not sure I understand the issue. "What" needs to access as "localhost"?
    The GMS itself really does need "localhost" as it has some built-in
    security to prevent certain functions from being performed from "outside" -
    but I guess I'm not sure what you mean needed a "localhost" access here.

    Re: Client installations failing

    HI,

    I am having this exact problem. If I use a smart phone and use the
    standalone installs on the PC it works fine, But If I try OTA I keep
    getting a 404 error the requested resource (/pkgbuilder/src/setup.exe) is
    not available.

    I can see it there in the directories. Please help.

    Re: Client installations failing

    If you IIS setup so that GMS resides as only a host header (sync.blah.com)
    and is unavailable as the default website, then you won't be able to
    install the clients OTA, and you'll get a lot of errors in the log. I
    just added an additional entry in the "multiple identities for this web
    site" with a blank host header value in addition to the orig and it works
    like a charm.

    I am having this exact same problem. My entry under "multiple identities
    for this web site" already has a blank host header value. Are you saying
    to add a 2nd entry exactly like the fist? When I try that it will not
    allow me to use the same port #'s.
