Refreshing an Agent

To refresh an Agent:

1.From the Manage Agents dialog, select the Agent whose status you want to refresh.

2.Click Refresh Agent.

The information about the selected agent is re-queried from the Agent Database and presented in the Agent list. For example, if the state of the Agent has changed since the previous refresh and the Manage Agent dialog is still open, the Status of the selected Agent will change.

NOTE: A refresh also occurs whenever the Manage Agents dialog is opened.

Removing an Agent

Note: When an Agent is removed, the Agent definition is deleted from the Agent Database. The Metalogix Content Matrix Console, the application file mappings and License files are not removed from the Agent machine.

1.From the Manage Agents dialog, select the Agent you want to remove.

2.Click Remove Agent.

A dialog displays asking you to confirm the removal.

Configuring Proxy Settings

In most cases Metalogix Content Matrix can automatically connect to SharePoint and authenticate license keys, through an environment's proxy setting, However, in some cases the proxy may need to be configured within Metalogix Content Matrix. In these cases users can specify the proxy settings though the connecting dialog.

There are two basic places where this proxy setting can be configured. The first of these is when activating a license key, and the second when connecting to SharePoint. The  dialogs for these options look slightly different, and the when you are using a proxy to connect to SharePoint, you have the additional option to Import Proxy from Internet Explorer.

Proxy Options Blank

To configure proxy settings:

1.In the Proxy server dialog, check the Enable proxy box.

2.Use the information in the following table to determine the appropriate action to take.

If ...

Then ...

you want to manually enter proxy information

A.Select Enter Manually.

B.Enter the Server name (or IP) and Port for the proxy.

C.Specify the credentials to be used when connecting to the target server.

The Windows authenticated credentials of the current user will be selected by default. You can specify alternate SharePoint credentials by clicking the Different user radio button, and entering an alternate username and password.

Proxy Options Manual

Internet Explorer has been configured to use a proxy server via a proxy auto-configuration (.PAC) file and you want  to connect to SharePoint using this method

select Import Proxy from Internet Explorer.

Proxy Import from IE

NOTE:  This option is currently available only when connecting to SharePoint.

Refer to the Microsoft article Auto proxy configuration settings for Internet Explorer for more information.

3.If you accessed the dialog from the License Activation dialog, click [Set].

NOTE:  If this method does not seem to be working, you can manually configure Metalogix Content Matrix to use a proxy setting.  See Manually Configuring Proxy Settings.

Manually Configuring Proxy Settings

If, for some reason, Metalogix Content Matrix cannot connect through a proxy, then the proxy settings can be configured through the Metalogix Content Matrix UI. If you are not able to configure the proxy settings through the product's UI for some reason, it can be configured manually. The below directions should help you manually configure some explicit proxy settings, enabling the product to work with your proxy.

To manually configure proxy settings:

1.Open the Metalogix Content Matrix Console and add a connection to the desired SharePoint location.

2.After a connection has been added, close Metalogix Content Matrix.

3.Open the ActiveConnections.xml file, which can be found in one of the following locations, in a text editor:

§Microsoft Vista/Windows 7/Windows8/Windows 10 based systems - <DRIVE>:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Roaming\Metalogix\Metalogix Content Matrix Console - <Product> Edition

§Microsoft Windows XP based systems (Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows 2000, Windows 2003, and Windows XP) - <DRIVE>:\Documents and Settings\<USER>\Application Data\Metalogix\Metalogix Content Matrix Console - <Product> Edition

Within the XML file there is a <Connection /> XML element for each added connection. In order for proxy settings to be added to a connection, another element needs to be added inside the connection XML. The added element should be named Proxy, and it should have an attribute named Url. The value for this Url attribute should be the actual URL for the proxy that will be used.

For example, if we are trying to add a proxy connection to the following node:

<Connection NodeType="Metalogix.SharePoint.SPWeb, Metalogix.SharePoint, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=3b240fac3e39fc03" AdapterType="WS" Url=http://SharePoint2010 />

We would add: <Proxy Url="http://metalogixproxy:8000/" />. So the end result would be:

<Connection NodeType="Metalogix.SharePoint.SPWeb, Metalogix.SharePoint, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=3b240fac3e39fc03" AdapterType="WS" Url="http://SharePoint2010">

<Proxy Url="http://metalogixproxy:8000/" />

</Connection>

If the proxy connection requires a user name and password that differ from your normal logged in Windows credentials, then these can also be specified in the Proxy element. The attribute UserName can be used to enter a user name (in domain\user format), and an attribute named Password can be used to enter the password value.

In this case the Proxy value <Proxy Url="http://metalogixproxy:8000/" /> would become:

<Proxy Url="http://metalogixproxy:8000/" UserName="DOMAIN\ProxyUser" Password="ProxyPassword" />

4.After these values have been entered to the desired connection, save and close the ActiveConnections.xml file.

5.Re-launch Metalogix Content Matrix.

The connection using the proxy should now be configured, and the connection should be established and working.
