Content Migrator

The Content Migrator job moves BLOBs for various circumstances, including:

·Those that were externalized asynchronously to their final endpoint. See Creating a New Storage Profile for information on asynchronous endpoint operations.

·Those that are queued up for migration as a result of an archiving rule condition being met. See the Archiving section for information on setting up archiving rules.

·Those that were marked as a record where Records Management is configured. See Records Managment for configuring rules.

·Large File uploads, if the timer job is configured to process them.

1.Select whether Large File Uploads will be processed using the system cache in the Include Large Files dropdown. If No is selected, the large file upload will use a system folder to ‘stage’ the upload.

2.Enter a number between 1 and 59 to represent the frequency, in minutes, for this job to run in the Every field.

3.Enter the timeframe using the between and and fields in which this process should take place. Leaving the time at 12 AM in both fields will cause the process to run continuously at the interval specified.

4.(Optional)  In the on Server field, select a WFE for this process to run.

5.(Optional) Click the Show link to see the advanced job settings.

6.(Optional)  Enter the Number of Processing Threads to use during job execution. It will default to one thread per processor core if no value is supplied.

7.(Optional) Configure job roles. See Master and Worker Configuration for more information.

8.(Optional) Under the Send Failure Notice To: header:

a.Check the Default Notification Contacts box to have an email sent to the email address entered in General Settings. Note that for this feature to work, the Default Notification field on General Settings must contain a valid email address.

b.In the Additional Contacts box, enter a semi-colon delimited list of other email addresses that should receive the notification.

9.Click Save at the bottom of the page to save the settings or click Process Queued Content Now to begin migrating BLOBs at the specified interval.

Self-healing Content Migrator Job

One of the tools used to keep storage requirements to a minimum is the Self-healing Content Migrator job. What this means is that the Content Migrator timer job has logic to analyze whether migrate tasks are being completed. If it is detected that the system cache has items that are not being properly processed, an Unused BLOB Cleanup timer job and a BLOB Health Analyzer timer job will automatically be scheduled to run at 2:00 am. These jobs will automatically be scheduled to run once a week. The Content Migrator job will rank the profiles in terms of most unprocessed items, and schedule up to three profiles per night for the timer jobs. Eventually, all profiles could be processed if needed.

Endpoint Capacity Monitor

The Endpoint Capacity Monitor is a job that analyzes configured endpoints for available free space. It will ignore endpoints that use adapters that do not support free space querying. The capacity thresholds that were defined for notification and for taking the endpoint off line will be used. If a threshold is reached, the capacity monitor will make a note of it and tag that endpoint to send out an alert or be taken offline the next time someone attempts to externalize content to that endpoint.

1.For the Bring Offline Endpoints Back Online field, selecting Yes will enable the endpoint to automatically return to an Online status if action is taken to correct the capacity issues or errors. No means that the administrator will have to manually bring the endpoint back online. See Managing Storage and Backup Endpoints for more information.

2.Enter a number between 1 and 59 to represent the frequency, in minutes, for this job to run in the Every field.

3.Enter the timeframe using the between and and fields in which this process should take place. Leaving the time at 12AM in both fields will cause the process to run continuously at the interval specified.

4.(Optional)  In the on Server field, select a WFE for this process to run.

b.In the Additional Contacts box, enter a semi-colon delimited list of other email addresses that should receive the notification.

7.Click Save at the bottom of the page to save the settings or click Process Capacity Monitoring Now to analyze the endpoints immediately.

License Notification Settings

If the SharePoint farm is not connected to the internet and license activation is done offline, the admin may want to receive notifications about upcoming license activation requirements. Licenses must be reactivated every 180 days. Online farms are updated through the License Verification Timer job, but offline farms will need to be run manually.
license notification settings

Check the box to get the notifications. A default of 10 days will be entered, but this can be changed to a number of days that meets company specifications.

Check Use Notification Defaults to send emails to the default notification email added in Default Settings.

Uncheck Use Notification Defaults and enter a semi-colon separated list of email addresses that should receive the notification.
