This guide contains detailed information about configuring and managing the ControlPoint application.


The Metalogix ControlPoint Administration Guide is intended for ControlPoint Application Administrators (that is, SharePoint administrators who also have responsibilities for managing ControlPoint configuration and permissions).

Configuring the Environment in Which ControlPoint Will Run

Once the ControlPoint application has been installed and configured on the first Web front-end server in your SharePoint farm, you can perform the following tasks as needed:

·Configure ControlPoint for each additional Web front-end server in your farm (both when installing ControlPoint for the first time and whenever a new Web front-end server has been added to your farm).

·Set up host headers and/or alternate access mappings (for load balancing).  

·If you use alternate authentication providers in your farm, configure ControlPoint to recognize them.

REMINDER:  Each farm in a multi-farm installation has its own copy of the ControlPoint application.  Therefore, if you have installed ControlPoint on multiple farms, you must perform the entire configuration and setup process for each farm.


Configuring ControlPoint for Additional Web Front-End Servers

If you have more than one Web front-end server in your farm, SharePoint automatically propagates the ControlPoint application to all of them.

Enabling Session Affinity for Load Balancing

If the ControlPoint application is to be accessed behind a load balancer, Session Affinity (“Sticky Sessions”) should be enabled for the ControlPoint Web Application on each server.  Otherwise, ControlPoint analyses may fail to complete. (Note that the method for enabling Site Affinity will vary, depending on your load balancer).

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.
