Additional Configuring Considerations for Multi-Farm Installations

If you want to run ControlPoint in a multi-farm environment:

·At a minimum, all farm in the installation must be in domains that share a two-way trust.

·If different ControlPoint Service Accounts are used for different farms, each of these accounts must be a member the ControlPoint Configuration site Remote Service Account Administrators group on all other farms in the installation.

·ControlPoint users must have the appropriate permissions for the ControlPoint Configuration site on each farm that they will be managing.

Configuring ControlPoint Services

If you are installing ControlPoint for SharePoint 2010 or later, at the conclusion of ControlPoint configuration process, you have the option to configure the following Windows service(s):

·The ControlPoint Discovery Service is an alternative to the (default) ControlPoint Full Discovery timer job, which runs from SharePoint Central Administration.  The ControlPoint Discovery Service runs as a Windows Service, and is especially suited to very large SharePoint environments as it can significantly reduce Discovery run time.

AND/OR

·If Sensitive Content Manager is installed in your environment, ControlPoint Sensitive Content Manager (SCM) Services can be used instead of the default ControlPoint Schedule Job Review timer job, which runs from SharePoint Central Administration:

§as a means of checking for:

Content Analysis (CA) jobs ready to be uploaded from ControlPoint to Sensitive Content Manager for scanning.

AND

§Scan results ready to be downloaded from Sensitive Content Manager to ControlPoint for further action.

The use of SCM Services offers the following advantages:

·Unlike the ControlPoint Scheduled Job Review job, which checks for Sensitive Content Manager upload and results jobs on a fixed schedule (by default, every ten minutes), SCM Services carry out these checks continuously.

AND

·Because they support multi-threading, SCM Services are especially suited to very large content analysis jobs.

NOTE:  If you want to configure services at a later time, you can do so by launching the Configuration Wizard from the server on which ControlPoint is installed (using the same login account that was used to install the ControlPoint application).  After the Wizard has finished checking installed components, select Configure Services.

Configure Services from Wizard

To configure ControlPoint Services:

1On the Configure Services dialog, select the service(s) you want to configure.

IMPORTANT:  The Service Account must meet all of the requirements of the ControlPoint Service Account, as well as permission to Run as a Service.

2Select the service(s) you want to configure.

3Click [Continue].

4Click [Start Deployment].

The installer deploys the selected Windows service(s).

Installer Services Deployed

5When the services have been successfully deployed, click [Finish].

Additional Setup Requirement for the ControlPoint Discovery Service

Before you can use the ControlPoint Discovery Service for the first time, you must also perform the following configuration tasks on the General tab of the Discovery Setup application (located, by default, in the folder C:\Program Files\Metalogix\ControlPoint\ControlPointFeatures\Services\Discovery):

·For Configure Discovery to run under, select SharePoint Local, and

·Add the SQL Server Connection String for xcAdmin Database.

NOTE:  You can copy the Connection String from the file CPConfiguration.exe.config, located, by default, in the folder C:\Program Files\Metalogix\ControlPoint\ControlPointFeatures. Use the portion of the string that starts with the words Data Source and ends with Integrated Security = <value>.

CP Discovery Connection String

The ControlPoint Configuration Site

The ControlPoint Configuration site is a SharePoint site that is integral to your ControlPoint installation.

This site is used primarily for managing ControlPoint users and permissions and  menus that display in the ControlPoint left navigation pane.  To manage groups you either need direct rights to manage the groups or be a site collection administrator.

If you are a site collection administrator for the ControlPoint Configuration site collection, you can access the site's administration pages and ControlPoint value-added features from the Hierarchy panel.  See ControlPoint Security in the ControlPoint User's Guide for more detail.

If you have sufficient permissions (regardless of whether you are the site collection administrator), you can access the site's home page:

·from the SharePoint Hierarchy tree, by right clicking the ControlPoint Configuration Site - Root Site and choosing Open Site.

·from the Manage section, by choosing ControlPoint Configuration Site.

 

Managing Your Farm List

If you have permissions to manage the ControlPoint farm list, you can:

·edit one of the following attributes:

§the name that displays in the SharePoint Hierarchy and selection trees, and/or

§in a multi-farm environment, the url used when switching farms from the ControlPoint application header.

·delete farms that you have decommissioned or no longer manage through ControlPoint.

Note that when you choose the delete a farm from the list, you can also choose whether or not to delete farm-related data (log files and cached data).

To Manage Your Farm List:

1From the Manage ControlPoint panel, choose Manage Farm List.

Manage Farm List
