September 2023

This article describes the steps you must perform to configure Metalogix Replicator with SharePoint 2010 and 2013 Web Applications using Claims-based Authentication or Anonymous Access.

Configuring Claims-based Windows Authentication Web Applications

Configuring Forms-based, Mixed Mode Authentication, or Anonymous Access Web Applications

Configuring Claims-based Windows Authentication Web Applications

Web applications using only claims-based Windows-only authentication can be configured for replication using the steps described in the Metalogix Replicator documentation.

Note that the account you specify must have read and write access to the Replicator Data Folders on the Target Web Application.

For more information on creating a Replication Connection, see the Metalogix Replicator Reference Guide.

Configuring Forms-based, Mixed Mode Authentication, or Anonymous Access Web Applications

For claims-based authentication, Metalogix Replicator requires a web application or web application extension configured using only Windows authentication. If you have a web application using forms-based authentication, a combination of claims-based authentication types, or Anonymous Access, then you must perform the following tasks to extend the web application for Replicator:

1.Extend the web application.

2.Configure Replicator Data Folders.

3.Configure the extension site.

1. Extend the Web Application

a.In SharePoint Central Administration, select Application Management and then Manage Web Applications.

b.Select the web application and click Extend.

c.In the Extend Web Application� form, enter settings for the extension. For example, if your forms-based web application uses port 80, then configure the extension to use port 8080. Give the extension a unique name to make it easier to identify later. For example, you could name the extension for an extranet site, "Extranet NTLM".

d.Under Claims Authentication Types, select Enable Windows Authentication, Integrated Windows authentication, and NTLM. Do not select any other options under Claims Authentication Types.

e.Click OK to create the extension.
