Document SharePoint Farm configuration

Configurations in SharePoint are set in Central Administration and stored in the Configuration database. Although the Configuration database and Central Administration are protected with STSADM-based backups, they contain computer-specific information and can only be restored to an environment configured to match exactly, including all software updates, server names, and number of servers. Therefore, manually documenting all the settings in Central Administration is necessary. Items that should be documented are detailed in: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=102839&clcid=0x409

NetVault Backup truncates the log messages in the NetVault Backup Binary Logs. You can enable the X Trace Level for the plug-in.
