From the Discovery Setup application, you can change the Discovery Service Configuration and Settings described below.
IMPORTANT: After making any changes, remember to click [OK] to save them.
If you want to change Discovery Runtime settings, (by default, every night at 1 am, local server time), adjust as necessary.
NOTE: The Discovery Options (Configure Discovery to run under and SQL Server Connection String for xcAdmin Database) are specified at the time ControlPoint Services are configured, and normally should not be changed.
You can use the Discovery Trace Settings drop-downs to change the level of logging for individual Discovery components.
Permissions and Site Analytics (Include/Exclude Options)
You can include/exclude the following individual components from the Discovery process:
§Discover Permissions (for analyses using cached data)
§Discover Business Administrators (that is, the SharePoint permissions of members of the ControlPoint Business Administrators group)
§Discover Statistics (which populate Statistics lists that are displayed on the ControlPoint Configuration site when this functionality is enabled)
§Discover Web Parts
You can start, stop, pause or resume the Metalogix ControlPoint Discovery Service either from the Windows Service dialog or from the Discovery Setup - Service Properties tab.
You can also change the Service Account of the Metalogix ControlPoint Discovery Windows Service from either the Windows Service dialog or from the Discovery Setup - Service Properties tab.
Remember that the Discovery Service Account requires permissions that are already granted to ControlPoint Service Account (such as Full Control in the Policy of every Web Application in the SharePoint farm and access to the ControlPoint Services (xcAdmin) database) in addition to the permission to Run as a Service.
You can monitor the status of ControlPoint Discovery jobs via the Discovery Setup - Vew Queue tab.
Note that the Status may be one of two values:
0 = Running
1 = Not Running (that is, last run completed and/or next run pending)
You can also choose to Auto Refresh the monitor at a rate of anywhere from 1 to 5 seconds.
You can view the details of a Discovery Service run in the DiscoveryService.log, which is located in the folder where the Discovery Service files reside (by default C:\Program Files\Metalogix\ControlPoint\ControlPointFeatures\Services\Discovery. A new log is created each week (with the date that the log was created appended to the file name). The level of detail recorded in the log depends on the Discovery Trace Switch values.
