Web Applications to Exclude from Full Discovery (WAPEXCLUDE)

By default, the ControlPoint Full Discovery process runs on all Web applications in a SharePoint farm.  ControlPoint Application Administrations can, however, exclude one or more  (up to a maximum of 6) Web applications from both the nightly Full Discovery process and any manual Discovery that is run on the entire farm.  (Administrators still have the option of running a Partial Discovery on these Web applications, either as-needed or on a one-time or recurring schedule).  

It may be useful, for example, if the Web application that hosts your MySites is large and time-consuming to "discover."  You can exclude that Web application from the Full Discovery process and run a Partial Discovery on a less frequent schedule, when system usage as low (such as on the weekend).  See also Running a Full or Partial Discovery Manually in the ControlPoint User's Guide.

Remember that activity data in analyses run from cache can only be reported up to the date of the last Discovery

To exclude a Web application from the Full Discovery process, enter the Web application's GUID as the Value of the ControlPoint Setting Web Applications to Exclude from Full Discovery.  Use the following guidelines:

1To locate a Web application's GUID, select the Web application in the ControlPoint Farm Hierarchy, right-click and choose Properties.

2Copy the Id's Property Value and paste it directly into the Value field.

WAP Guid

3Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each Web application you want to exclude (up to a maximum of 6).  Use a comma (,) to separate each GUID in the list.

Changing Settings to Accommodate Special Environmental Factors

These configuration settings display in the ControlPoint Settings list under the category Environment.


Alternate Access Mapping Zone for Navigation and Report Links (URLZONE)

By default, the url specified for a Web application's Default zone is used to open SharePoint pages from within the ControlPoint application interface.  

Config Setting URLEXCLUDE

If you use alternate access mappings, ControlPoint may be unable to use the url in the Default zone because of the way it is configured.  For example, if you are using TLS or SSL to implement https and the Default zone uses the https protocol, ControlPoint would not be able to access the site directly from that url.  Therefore, it would have to be configured to use the url in a zone that would allow direct access.

ControlPoint Application Administrators can change the zone that ControlPoint uses by modifying the Value of the ControlPoint Setting Alternate Access Mapping Zone for Navigation and Report Links.

NOTE:  This is an Advanced Setting.


Valid values are

·0 (Default)

·1 (Intranet)

·2 (Internet)

·3 (Custom)

·4 (Extranet)

·-1 (always use the url for the zone from which the user accessed ControlPoint)


Enable SharePoint Server Functionality (MOSS)

When ControlPoint is first installed the installer automatically detects whether the SharePoint farm is Foundation-only or Server and automatically populates the Value in the ControlPoint Settings list item MOSS with the appropriate value:

·"MOSS" value = true (for MOSS/Server), or

·"MOSS" value = false (for WSS/Foundation-only)

Note on terminology:  WSS is the 2007 equivalent of SharePoint Foundation, and MOSS is the 2007 equivalent of SharePoint Server.

If the SharePoint environment changes (for example, the farm is upgraded from WSS-only to MOSS) a ControlPoint Application Administrator must update the Value of the ControlPoint Setting MOSS in order to run fully functional ControlPoint Activity analyses and to enable menu access to those SharePoint functions that are not available in a WSS-only farm.
