Deploying the Self-Service Recovery solution

The user must have adequate SharePoint permissions to access the library items. In addition, the user must have had adequate SharePoint permissions to access the item when it was backed-up.

When you deploy the Self-Service Recovery feature, Metalogix Backup for SharePoint does the following automatically:

·Copies the Self-Service Recovery SharePoint Solution package (.WSP file) to the SharePoint Farm Solution store.

·Deploys the solution to the Web application that is the parent of any site collections that you specify.

·Activates the deployed solution as a SharePoint feature on the site collections.

The Self-Service Recovery feature is optional. You do not have to deploy it to use Metalogix Backup for SharePoint. You should deploy the Self-Service Recovery feature on every site collection where you want to use it.

Configuring the Self-Service Recovery Settings

Use the Metalogix Backup for SharePoint Management Console to configure the following settings for the Self-Service Recovery feature:

Management Service host name

You can specify the name of the Management Service host that the Self-Service Recovery feature should access. If you change the Management Service host name, the Self-Service Recovery feature uses backups from that Metalogix Backup for SharePoint deployment. If that Metalogix Backup for SharePoint does not backup the site collection, no content appears in the Self-Service Recovery feature in the site collection.

When you specify the Management Service host name, you can use any of the following formats:

·Machine name

·Fully-qualified name

·IP address

Management Service port

The port that the Self-Service Recovery feature should use to contact the Management Service. You should ensure that your network configuration allows the Self-Service Recovery to use this port in order to access the Management Service. If you change the Management Service port here, you must also change the Management Service port on the Management Service.

Number of items that appear when you browse backed-up content

You can specify how many items appear in the Self-Service Recovery feature when you browse the backed-up content. The more items that appear in the list, the longer it takes SharePoint to display the page.

Number of items that appear when you search for content

You can specify how many items appear in the Self-Service Recovery feature when you search for backed-up content. The more items that appear in the list, the longer it takes SharePoint to display the page.

The ULS logging level that Self-Service Recovery uses

When it encounters an error, the Self-Service Recovery feature logs the error to the SharePoint Unified Logging System (ULS) logs. You can specify the level of the content added to the ULS logs. You can select one of the following log levels:

·Undefined

·Exception

·Critical

·Warning

·Informational

When you select a level, items of that level and more serious are added to the ULS logs.
