A SharePoint network consists of one or more farms. Each farm is a collection of one or more connected computers. Each farm runs at least one web application. By installing and configuring Metalogix Replicator for SharePoint, you create a Replication Network, which replicates SharePoint content between web applications in your SharePoint environment. You can use Replicator to replicate this content between farms or within the same farm. In order to replicate between farms, you must install Replicator on each farm. This guide will run through various installations, upgrade, and uninstall scenarios based on various farm configurations.

For a basic installation scenario, see the Replicator Quick Start Guide, and for further configuration and evaluation of Replicator see the Replicator Evaluation Guide. Both guides are available here:

Security Certification

All external communications by the Replicator software are Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 compliant.

Common Replication Network Topologies

In the case of each topology demonstrated below, Replicator would need to be installed on each farm for replication to take place.

Planning your Deployment

This section provides an overview on how to plan the deployment of Replicator.

Installing Replicator into your SharePoint Farm

Metalogix Replicator can be installed on any server in your SharePoint farm that is running the SharePoint web application service.

You can install Replicator on more than one server in your farm, but only Enterprise Edition licenses support running multiple Replicator installations at the same time in the same farm.

For every scenario of installation, and on every server/farm where you will be installing Replicator, you will have to download and run the installer. Downloading and running the installer are both detailed in this document in section Downloading and Preparing the Replicator Installer and section Installing Metalogix Replicator, respectively.

There are multiple benefits to running Replicator on more than one server. For a detailed list of these benefits, see the Replicator Product and Concepts Guide.
