I wish to make a change to the web.config file. I know you can do this by using a supplemental config file. I know that the file needs to be coppied to
%ProgramFiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\14\CONFIG.
Does it need to be coppied on every server? Is it possible to automate the deployment of this file in a wsp?
Once the file has been ditrubuted I need to run stsadm -o copyappbincontent on each server to recreate the web.config file. To confirm if I add a new server I will not need to do this?
I am tring to add the following to the web.config
<add name="MySPXmlContentMapProvider" siteMapFile="myxml.sitemap" type="Microsoft.SharePoint.Navigation.SPXmlContentMapProvider, Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=188.8.131.52, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" />

<RootFiles> <RootFile Location="CONFIG\webconfig.myname.xml" /> </RootFiles>
