Metalogix Replicator 7.4 - Quick Start Guide

Quick Start Guide


A SharePoint network consists of one or more farms. Each farm is a collection of one or more connected computers. Each farm runs at least one web application. By installing and configuring Metalogix Replicator for SharePoint, you create a Replication Network, which replicates SharePoint content between web applications in your SharePoint environment. You can use Replicator to replicate this content between farms or within the same farm.

As an administrator, this Quick Start Guide will take you through the basic steps required for installation and configuration. Once you have completed all the steps in this guide, you will be able to evaluate the product with the use of our Metalogix Replicator Evaluation Guide.

For more detailed instructions on the installation process, please see the Metalogix Replicator Installation Guide.  

Security Certification

All external communications by the Replicator software are Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 compliant.



The following tables describe the hardware, software, and access requirements for Metalogix Replicator. If our requirement is equivalent or less restrictive than a SharePoint requirement, then we do not document it here.

Hardware Requirements




Under normal circumstances, the Replicator processor requirements are the same as SharePoint. When replicating large amounts of SharePoint content, Replicator uses a greater amount of CPU capacity. The expected load is comparable to up to 10 full time users accessing the web front end.


Replicator Basic and Standard editions require at least 1.25 GB of available memory.


Replicator Enterprise Edition requires at least 1.5 GB of available memory.


Additionally, ensure there is approximately 10 times the size of the largest file you expect to replicate in available memory.


For example, if you are using Replicator Standard Edition and expect to replicate files that are 25 MB and smaller, then you should have 1.5 GB (1.25 + 10 x 0.025) of available memory for Replicator.

Disk Space

At least 500 MB of free disk space in the %TEMP% folder of the server where Replicator is installed.


At least 20 GB of free disk space in a shared network folder for your Replicator Data Folders. This number is a rough guideline and is affected by how frequently changes occur in your SharePoint environment, how often packages are cleared, and several other Replicator configuration settings.


At least 4 GB of free disk space in SQL Server is required where the SharePoint configuration database is stored.
