Before you begin setting up Groove client auditing, make sure you can meet the requirements listed in the following table.

 

Devices and Software To Do:

Hardware/Software requirements

Ensure that your Groove Audit setup complies with the specifications in Requirements for Groove Manager.

Onsite Groove Server Manager

Install Groove Server Manager under either of the following conditions:

  • Separate installation session, prior to Groove Audit, or

  • Same installation session as Groove Audit

Record the server name and login for future use.

Groove Audit

Decide where to install the Groove Audit application:

  • Preferred: Install auditing on a separate, dedicated server machine that meets the Groove Server Manager requirements described in the Requirements for Groove Manager, or

  • Install auditing on the primary Groove Manager server. Consider this option only if auditing a small user base with minimal Groove activity.

NOTE: Installing the auditing application on a separate, dedicated IIS front-end is the recommended configuration. This minimizes the impact of auditing activities on other Groove Manager tasks.

Record the server name and login for future use.

SQL server

Decide where to install the Groove Audit SQL database:

  • On a Groove Manager SQL server, or

  • On a dedicated SQL server

Record the server name and login for future use.

Groove client

Ensure that Groove is installed on client devices, as follows:

  • Office Groove 2007 (preferred), or

  • Groove 3.0, minimum

Groove users

Ensure that Groove users are members of a Groove Manager domain.

See Adding Groove Users to a Domain in the Groove Manager Domain Administration portion of the Help for information about adding users to a domain.

Groove devices

Ensure that domain member devices are registered with a Groove Manager domain.

See Registering User Devices with the Groove Manager in the Groove Manager Domain Administration portion of the Help for information about adding devices to a domain.

Groove Audit Service

Enable the resident Groove Audit Service by opening the Windows Services manager and setting the Microsoft Office Groove Audit Service to Automatic Startup.
