Configuring the plug-in

Configuring default settings

The plug-in lets you set default options for backup and restore jobs. You can override these options on a per-job basis.

1
In the Navigation Pane, click Create Backup Job, and click Create New next to the Selections list.
3
From the Actions list, select Configure.
Windows Administrator User Name: For a Single Server deployment, enter a user name in the .\username format, where the user name is a member of the Administrators group on the local computer.
For a Small or Scaled-Out Farm, enter a domain user name in the DOMAIN\username format. Verify that the account has met the prerequisites outlined previously in Small Farm deployment prerequisites and Scaled-Out Farm deployment prerequisites.
Password: Enter the password associated with the user specified in the preceding field. For security reasons, this field is displayed blank by default.
STSADM Filename: Enter the full path and executable filename that points to the STSADM command line tool, for example, C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\<version>\BIN\stsadm.exe. Replace <version> with 12 for SharePoint 2007, 14 for SharePoint 2010, 15 for SharePoint 2013, or 16 for SharePoint 2016. By default, the plug-in enters the path to the directory where the web extensions are installed.
Directory for Temporary Files: Specify the directory where temporary SharePoint backup packages should be stored.
For Small and Scaled-Out Farms, use UNC share paths, such as \\machine_name\SPbackup, so that the SQL Server Database and search components are written to the same location. This directory must exist and all the servers in the SharePoint Farm must be able to access it. For more information, see Deploying the plug-in.
Incomplete Backup of ALL Items Selected: The plug-in can do one of the following when this error condition occurs:
Complete with Warnings — Saveset Retained: The job returns a status of “Backup Completed with warnings” and a backup saveset is created that includes the items that were successfully backed up.
Complete without Warnings — Saveset Retained: The job completes and returns a status of “Backup Completed.” The errors are logged in the NetVault Backup binary logs and ignored on the Job Status page. A backup saveset is created that includes the items that were backed up.
Fail — Saveset Retained: The job returns a status of “Backup Failed.” However, a backup saveset is generated that includes the items that were successfully backed up.
Fail — No Saveset Retained: The job returns a status of “Backup Failed” and no saveset of backed-up objects is kept. That is, even if some of the objects were successfully backed up, the saveset is discarded.
If either of the following occurs, the plug-in overrides the Incomplete Backup of ALL Items Selected setting and responds as indicated:
With the account properly configured, you can click the SharePoint APM node to display the available Farms.
