Librarian and New File Externalization

New content within the scope of the librarian configuration will need a non-librarian endpoint if there isn’t one already on an existing profile for that scope; otherwise it will go to the content database. For example, if a librarian configuration is created that is pointing to a Content Database, but there is already a profile for the Web Application, the Future File Externalization Endpoint field will not be necessary; the endpoint that is already on the profile will be used. If the web app profile had only Librarian endpoints, the field will display on the Librarian configuration page. Conversely, if the Librarian configuration is going to result in the creation of a new profile where only the librarian endpoint is added, a second endpoint can be added to that profile while making edits on the librarian configuration page. New content is anything added after the content is cataloged, including versions of cataloged content.

File Share Librarian and System Cache

If there is a StoragePoint profile that uses RBS, System Cache must be configured in order to be able to add a Librarian configuration to the profile.

For example, if there is a profile for a content database that externalizes the data synchronously, and the plan is to catalog a file share to a site on that content database, system cache must be configured before creating the librarian configuration.

Multiple Endpoints to one Library

Configuring multiple File Share Librarian configurations to catalog to the same Library or List is not supported.

In the File Share Librarian section, the scenarios included the generation of SharePoint structure using File Share Librarian. A Site was created, as well a Library. If there are multiple file shares being cataloged to one Library, i.e. Shared Documents, any content uploaded to the library will not go to the endpoints, but rather to the content database or to the alternate endpoint added to the librarian configuration or profile.

If another endpoint is added to the profile, uploaded content will go there instead of the content database. If a filter was added to the added endpoint, and the content doesn’t meet the filter criteria for that endpoint, it will go to the content database.

File Share to MySites Migration

A special use case within the Librarian capability facilitates the move from that common user folder or drive (i.e. that network share a user is mapped to when they log in to Windows…the networked My Documents) everyone has to the SharePoint representation of that, a MySite or SharePoint Personal Site. Simply enter the File Share to Catalog and make sure the SharePoint Destination Container is a MySite Host and additional settings are provided to configure the Librarian for this type of cataloging. In addition to creating containers and cataloging items, the Librarian can also create SharePoint User Profiles and the actual Personal Sites themselves.
