As part of the initial configuration of ControlPoint Online, the following tasks are created in the Windows Task Scheduler on the server where ControlPoint Online is installed, in the folder Task Scheduler Library > Metalogix > ControlPoint Online:
·the ControlPoint FullDiscovery job, scheduled by default to run once a day to populate the ControlPoint data cache.
NOTE: The FullDiscovery job is disabled by default, and should be disabled if the ControlPoint Discovery Service will be used instead.
·the ControlPoint Scheduler Job, scheduled to run by default ever 10 minutes to check for and initiate the execution of operations scheduled via the ControlPoint Scheduler.
These tasks are configured to run using the credentials of the ControlPoint Service Account.
NOTE: Although the Scheduler Job specifies an initial Start Date and Time, the task is actually triggered for the first time when the first scheduled job is submitted via the ControlPoint application interface.
If you want to change the scheduled run time or frequency of either of these tasks, you can do so directly in the Windows Task Scheduler or via the ControlPoint Schedule Monitor.
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.
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:
From the Control Panel Programs and Features select Metalogix ControlPoint and choose Uninstall.
