In preparation for a migration soon, I am cleaning up our 2013 environment. We used to use Metalogix ControlPoint when we did 2010 to 2013, but that was a long time ago, and it has itself all over the farm configuration.

  • I went into Central Admin, went to ControlPoint and removed it.

  • I went to Manage Farm Solutions and removed the associated features

  • Went to Solution Management and de-activated everything having to do with Metalogix (There was around 8 items).

  • I removed the 4 associated Content Databases from the SQL Cluster.

Now almost all of my sites have a Runtime error and produce the page letting you know to edit the web.configuration file. I've followed that, and there was no change.

ULS is seeing "SPSqlLatencyMonitor.PingServers: exception encountered" constantly with trying to log into the SQL database as well. I am not sure how to interpret what is making the constant call to the DB.

I have clearly broken something, and I'd like to learn how to fix it. This is a QA Environment, and I have backups of everything. I don't want to resort to that yet. I've only been doing SharePoint admin for 2 months now, so I'm still pretty new to a lot of it! I need to eventually apply this to Production.
