Metalogix ControlPoint 8.1 - for Office 365 Installation Guide

Upgrading from a Previous Version of ControlPoint Online

Due to configuration changes introduced in version 8.0, if you are upgrading from an earlier version of ControlPoint Online,  the procedure to upgrade is the the same as that for First Time Installation and Configuration, with the following exceptions:

·installed files, which formerly resided in a folder called AxcelerFeature,  will be placed in a new folder called ControlPoint Features

·the license key, ControlPoint Service (xcAdmin) database, and ControlPoint Configuration site will be retained and updated, and

·if you have installed Discovery and/or SCM Services, they will be recreated in the folder C:\Program Files\Metalogix\ControlPoint Online\ControlPointFeatures\Services, and all settings (including the Connection String and Host Settings), will be preserved.

Removing (Uninstalling) ControlPoint Online

Use the following procedure if you want to remove ControlPoint Online installed components.  

Note that you will have the option to either retain or remove the the ControlPoint Services (xcAdmin) database.  You may want to keep this database if, for example, you plan to reinstall ControlPoint at a later time or want to archive the data. Remember to retain the xcAdmin Database if you are using ControlPoint in a multi-farm environment and want to continue to use it to manage other farms

NOTE:  Because it is hosted in the Cloud, the ControlPoint Online Configuration Site Collection will not be removed by the  installer.   If you want to remove it, you will have to do so directly from the SharePoint Online Administration site.

When removing installed components:

Make sure that you:

·run the installer on the  server on which the original installation was performed, and

·log in using the account from which the original installation was run.

To launch the installer:
