Calculating Farm User Count

ControlPoint counts all individual users who currently have permissions in SharePoint, either directly, through an Active Directory group, and/or through a SharePoint group.  

Excluded from this user count are:

·external or anonymous users


·most built-in Active Directory accounts

NOTE:   ControlPoint will consider the account NT Authority\authenticated users and the Active Directory group Everyone to encompass all active Active Directory users (that is, for these groups, users hose accounts have been disabled in Active Directory will not be counted). If either of these accounts has permissions within the SharePoint farm, it will be reflected in the user count.


TIP:  If you suspect that there are disabled or deleted Active Directory user accounts that still have permissions in SharePoint, either explicitly or through a group other than NT Authority/authenticated users or Everyone, generate an Orphaned Domain Users report and delete them from SharePoint so they will not be included in the user count.

Reviewing, Changing, and Refreshing License Information

Granting ControlPoint Access to Web Applications and Content Databases

ControlPoint Application Administrators must ensure that the ControlPoint Service Account has Full Control access rights to the Web application(s) if:

·a new Web application is added to a farm

·a new content database has been added to a Web application, or

·the permissions for the ControlPoint Service Account have been changed in or deleted from the Web application's policy.

If an account other than the ControlPoint Service Account is used as the Application Pool account, the following text will display beside the Web application icon in the left navigation pane:  "(ControlPoint does not have access to this Web app.  Access must be granted via the ControlPoint Configuration Wizard.)"  

WAP Grant Access UI

If a content database has been added and access rights have not been granted, site collections beneath the text "Inaccessible" will display.

You can grant access rights to Web applications and content databases from the server on which ControlPoint is installed.

To grant access to additional Web application(s) or Content Database(s):

1.Log into the server where ControlPoint is installed as the ControlPoint installation account.

NOTE:  As a sysadmin, the ControlPoint installation account has the permissions required to grant access rights.

2.Launch the ControlPoint Configuration Wizard.

After the ControlPoint Components check has completed, click [Continue].

The Configuration Wizard Welcome dialog displays.

3.Click Grant Access to New Web Apps and Content Databases.

Configuration Wizard GRANT ACCESS


Once access has been successfully granted, a confirmation pop-up displays.

NOTE:  If no new Web applications or content databases have been added, the pop-up will display the message All Web apps and content databases are already configured for ControlPoint.
