Metalogix StoragePoint 5.9.2 - Known Issues

Selecting Scope for a Profile goes to Central Admin

The issue occurs when selecting the scope of a profile. The change button is clicked which opens a window to show the SharePoint Farm structure. If a different Web Application is selected in the upper right corner, the new window that opens shows the Central Admin page instead of the list of Web Applications.

The root cause was that the Central Admin session that was opened to access StoragePoint was not using the default internal Alternate Access Mapping.

For example, to access Central Admin someone was using http://servername.fullyqualified:100 and not http://servername:100. The default internal AAM should be used.

Scheduling the Process Existing Jobs

When Archiving, Records or Holds are enabled on a profile, the Process Existing dialog is displayed when saving the profile. This allows those newly created rules to be applied to existing content, and categorically migrate the content to the correct endpoint.

If the job is to be scheduled for a later time (process existing content at a later time, such as when most users are not online) rather than immediately, the date and time pickers are displayed below, and scrolling down may be necessary.

Customized or Unghosted Files

Customized or unghosted files will not be excluded from externalization unless the profile endpoint selection mode is asynchronous. See Synchronous versus Asynchronous in the Metalogix StoragePoint Reference Guide for more information.

Until further updates are tested, Metalogix does not recommend the use of Move-SPSite for any content that is externalized using RBS.


The workaround for moving site collections within the same web-app scoped profile is to use Move-Site, with the same parameters as Move-SPSite. This command will not work for moving site collections from one content database to another, if the content databases are covered by separate profiles.
