Make sure that you meet the following prerequisites before you run a FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint backup or restore script.

noteNote
Always run the backup and restore scripts from the FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint administration server. Scripts that are started on the administration server, in turn starts backup or restore tasks on remote servers by using the Windows PowerShell remoting feature.

In this article:

On all servers in the FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint farm, make sure that you meet the following prerequisites:

  • Ensure that the user who runs the backup and restore scripts, is a member of the local FASTSearchAdministrators group, and of the local administrators group.

  • Enable Windows PowerShell remoting. Open a Windows PowerShell prompt as an administrator and run this command:

    Enable-PSRemoting -Force
    
  • Ensure that Windows PowerShell remoting is set up as a Credential Security Support Provider (CredSSP) server. Open a Windows PowerShell prompt as an administrator and run this command:

    Enable-WSManCredSSP -Role Server -Force
    
  • Increase the maximum amount of memory that is allocated to a Windows PowerShell instance on a remote server. Open a Windows PowerShell prompt as an administrator and run this command:

    Set-Item WSMan:\localhost\Shell\MaxMemoryPerShellMB 1000
    

On the administration server in the FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint farm, make sure that you meet the following prerequisites:

  • Ensure that Windows PowerShell remoting is set up as a Credential Security Support Provider (CredSSP) client. Open a Windows PowerShell prompt as an administrator and run the following command:

    Enable-WSManCredSSP -Role Client -DelegateComputer <server1,server2,...,server> -Force
    

    Where <server1,server2,…,server> lists the server names of all servers in the FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint farm.

    importantImportant
    The server names must be identical to the server names as they appear in the <FASTSearchFolder>\etc\config_data\deployment\deployment.xml file.
  • Ensure that the SQL Server Management Objects (SMO) .Net assemblies are installed. If SQL Server is installed on the FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint administration server, you already have the SMO assemblies. Otherwise, you can install the SMO assemblies by installing the Microsoft SQL Server System CLR Types and Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Management Objects packages that are available from http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=188653.

  • Ensure that the user who runs the backup and restore scripts, has sysadmin permissions on the FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint administration database (SQL database).
