Using ConfigureSharePoint

Updated: February 1, 2010

Applies To: System Center Data Protection Manager 2007

Before you begin to protect a SharePoint farm, you must configure protection for SharePoint by using ConfigureSharePoint.exe.

The ConfigureSharePoint.exe file can be found in the <DPM Installation Path>\bin folder on the front-end Web server.

Syntax

ConfigureSharePoint [-EnableSharePointProtection] [-EnableSPSearchProtection] [-ResolveAllSQLAliases] [-SetTempPath <path>]

Parameters

 

Parameter Description

EnableSharePointProtection

  • This option enables the protection of SharePoint farm.

  • Enables WSS writer required for SharePoint farm protection.

  • Registers the identity of the DCOM application WssCmdletsWrapper to run as a user whose credentials are entered with this option. This account should be a farm admin and also local admin on the front-end Web Server.

EnableSPSearchProtection

  • Enables the protection of WSS 3.0 SP Search by using the registry key SharePointSearchEnumerationEnabled under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\ Microsoft Data Protection Manager\Agent\2.0\ on the front-end Web Server.

  • Registers the identity of the DCOM application WssCmdletsWrapper to run as a user whose credentials are entered with this option. This account should be a farm admin and also local admin on the front-end Web Server.

ResolveAllSQLAliases

This option displays all the aliases reported by the SharePoint VSS writer and resolves them to the corresponding SQL server. It also displays their resolved instance names. If the servers are mirrored, it will also display the mirrored server. It reports all the aliases that are not being resolved to a SQL Server.

SetTempPath

Sets the environment variable TEMP and TMP to the specified path. Item level recovery fails if a large site collection, site, list or item is being recovered and there is insufficient space in the farm admin Temporary folder. This option allows you to change the folder path of the temporary files to a volume that has sufficient space to store the site collection or site being recovered.
