In this section we will be preparing your servers and SharePoint environment for Metalogix Replicator. We do this by first performing prerequisite tasks.
Before installing Metalogix Replicator, we strongly recommend making a complete backup of your SharePoint environment. This backup should include any content and configuration databases, web server extensions, custom library files, and IIS settings.
For more information on these steps, see the Microsoft SharePoint documentation.
Ensure that the identical versions of any SharePoint customizations are deployed to both SharePoint farms. Customizations can include custom web parts, solutions, event receivers, web services, site definitions, and list definitions.
For more information on these steps, see the Microsoft SharePoint documentation or the documentation for the customizations.
If you have installed SharePoint with an internal database, you must reinstall SharePoint to have an external database. Please seefor installation information.
