2. Installation
The following sections describe the steps required to install DocAve v5.5 for your SharePoint
environment. The installation process requires the setup and configuration of two components:
the DocAve Manager and the DocAve Agents. The DocAve Manager is comprised of several services which can be installed across multiple machines, however, certain Manager components
(specifically the Control Service) must be installed first. The DocAve Agent Package is comprised
of multiple agent services which can be installed on different machines according to the role of
the machine and the necessary DocAve services you wish to install.
2.1 Overview
DocAve v5 consists of two basic modules: the DocAve Manager and the DocAve Agent.
DocAve Manager
The DocAve Manager consists of several components which can either be run on the same environment as your DocAve Agents, or split across several servers. Using the DocAve Manager
Installation Package, users can install:
Page 17
•
Web Service : Represents the access point to the DocAve GUI, allowing users to
interact with the software. The web service can be installed on multiple machines and
allows administrators to access the DocAve GUI using a web browser (such as Internet Explorer 8). If the web service is installed on multiple machines, this will ensure
high availability of the DocAve GUI, in the case that one web service fails.
•
Auditing Service : Monitors SharePoint activities and return the data to the Control
Services for processing. This service is critical for using the DocAve Compliance module.
•
Control Service : Manages all DocAve operations. All agent machines will use the
control service port and address to communicator with the manager, so it is imperative that the machine you install the control service on is accessible by all agent
machines. This service can be run on a server cluster to ensure high availability; if the
control service were to go down, a standby service in the cluster would be enabled by
an administrator.
•
Media Service : Manages all data storage for the DocAve platform. These can be
installed on multiple machines and can manage multiple Logical Drives. Using multiple media agents will allow for high availability and load balanced access to the data
storage locations.
•
Search Service : Manages all data by generating a full text index. This service is critical for using the DocAve Item-level backup and Compliance Archiver.
2001-2010 AvePoint, Inc. All rights reserved.
DocAve v5 User Guide
•
Back to Table of Contents
Report Service : Manages all SharePoint data collection and management for the
DocAve Report Center. This must be configured with the associated SQL databases
and SQL Report Services.
Although it is possible to deploy both the DocAve Manager and DocAve Agents on a single server,
this is not a recommended configuration. For the best performance, install the Manager’s services across multiple servers and install only the necessary Agents on each Agent machine.
DocAve Agent
DocAve Agents can be installed on any Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007, Windows SharePoint Server (WSS) Version 3 environment (with Service Pack 1 installed)*, Windows
SharePoint Server 2010, or Windows SharePoint Foundation 2010 that meets the system requirements specified in the next section. There are several types of agents that must be installed to
run the various DocAve modules. A description of each module’s agent type and specific permissions required for each are listed in greater detail below.
*Note: SharePoint Service Pack 1 is only required for users who plan on installing and using the
Storage Optimization module.
2.2 Supported Platforms

•
•

•
Windows Server 2003 (x86 and x64)

Select the number of full backup cycles to run before data pruning
begins. If, for example, 2 full backup cycles are selected, once a third
backup cycle runs and completes, data pruning will begin and data
older than 2 cycles will be removed or moved to a separate tier.
However, despite being removed from the logical device and timeline
in Restore Controller, the backup data still exists in Job Monitor unless
Remove Backup Job is selected.
5
*Note: When the Keep at Least checkbox is checked, pruning will
occur only on data older than the time selected, regardless of the
number entered in the Full Backup Cycle(s) field.When saving the new
Tier Storage columns, you can notice that they will be listed in accordance with the order of selected number descendingly regardless of
your configuration to it.
*Note: The definition of one cycle: one cycle is all the data between
two full backup jobs for one plan. For example, one granular backup
plan has the following jobs: FB1, IB1, IB2, IB3, FB2, IB..., the jobs
from FB1 to IB3 is one cycle.

Pruning section of any Platform-level, Item-level, Site-level, and Site Collection-level backup
builder modules.
*Note: DocAve does not support the manual removal of backup data directly from the file system, and either a data pruning rule or removal from the Job Monitor must be used. If any data
has been removed, please make sure that all files and folders are returned in their entirety to
their original location in the file system before using the restore controller.
Removing data from TSM manually
If the TSM node has this permission, it will mark the content which can be deleted, and delete it
when the deletion operation is performed.
If the TSM node do not have this permission, you can run the following administrative command
at the TSM server to assign the ‘dtBackupID’ permission to the TSM node. To issue this command, you must have system privileges, unrestricted policy privileges, or restricted policy privileges for the policy domain to which the client node belongs:
update node MyTSMNode backdel=yes
(MyTSMNode is the node used by DocAve)
Or the data will be deleted according to the setting in TSM Policy Domain Properties. You can set
up the value of If client data is deleted and Number for days to 0, and the data will be
deleted when the deletion operation is performed.
Files will not be completely deleted from server storage using client delete operations, so you
should run the following administrative command to completely remove them from storage. You
can run the command manually or define an administrative schedule to do that. To issue this
command, you must have system privileges:
expire inventory
define schedule delete_data type=administrative cmd="expire inventory” active=yes starttime=20:00 period=2
(This command defines a schedule named ‘delete_data’ which will run ‘expire
inventory’ command at 8 p.m. every two days)
To view the permission of the TSM node, you can run the following command:

3.3.1.2 Job Pruning
The Job Pruning tab allows you to set up a pruning rule for all job records across your farms. It is
highly recommended to configure a Job Pruning policy if you run frequent backups. This will
ensure that your database will not be overloaded with job data.
General Job Record Pruning Rule
There are three general job record pruning rule types:
•
•
•
No Pruning: all types of job records will be saved.
By Job Life Cycle: Set the number of days, weeks, or months to keep the job records.
By Job Count: Set the number of job cycles to keep the job records.
Setting a Pruning Rule for Each Feature
This allows you to set up a pruning rule for each feature within Data Protection, Administration,
Compliance, Migration, and Storage Optimization. By default, all the features will use the General
Job Record Pruning Rule until a rule for the individual feature is applied.
*Note: The Remove backup data checkbox will only be available when a job containing Granular Backup data is selected.This option will allow you to remove the backup data with its job
record simultaneously.
Defining the Location for Export Report
Job Pruning allows you to specify a location to export a report of job pruning jobs. Click Define
Location, and enter the location information (username, password, and the export path) to the
pop-up window. Please notice that the export path has to be input in UNC path form. Click Test
to verify the access, then click OK. The URL will be listed in the corresponding text box.
By clicking Prune Now, the detailed information on the pruned job records will be exported
under the path you defined in an excel file.
Setting a Schedule for the Pruning Rule
Page 71

DocAve v5 User Guide
Back to Table of Contents
You can setup a schedule for the pruning rule by unchecking the No schedule check-box. Using
the calendar icon next to the Start Time field, select a date and time for the pruning job to run,
and then set an interval for recurring rules based on an Only Once, Daily, Weekly, or Monthly
schedule.
Apply the Rule or Prune Now
Once a job record pruning rule has been set, click Save or Prune Now. By clicking Save, the
rules will be saved and DocAve will prune the job records according to the scheme that you
setup. By clicking Prune Now, DocAve will remember the rule and prune the job records at
once.
You can view the status of pruning jobs in the process bar at the bottom of the window.
3.3.1.3 Data Coalescing
Data Coalescing merges Incremental or Differential data chunks onto the previous Full Backup so
as to save disk space needed to store backup data. Data Coalescing allows DocAve administrators to effectively stretch out Backup Cycles to Full Backups plus the number of incremental
backups until the next Full Backup without the added risk of losing incremental data.
For example, an administrator could set a monthly backup cycle where a Full Backup is performed on the 1st of every month, and an Incremental Backup is performed daily. The resulting
data is one set of a Full Backup residing on your local/network drive or SAN (Storage Area Network) environment.
Within Manual Coalescing, you can select a Backup Type, and then click Backup Data to expand
the data tree. Select the data you wish to coalesce by checking the corresponding check-box.
Click Coalescing to run the job.
Though the backup data will merge, the indexes of the incremental or differential backup jobs
will remain in the original job folders. After the coalescence, the previous full backup job, as well
as the incremental or differential ones cannot be loaded in the timeline of Restore Controller.
Within Auto Coalescing, you can create an auto coalescing plan. Select a trigger to automatically
coalesce backup data: specify a number of incremental or differential backups reaches or specify
a start time with an interval. Select an Email notification profile, which will notify the receiver
after the auto coalescing plan runs according to the Email notification profile. Click Save, the
profile will appear on the right. You can view the status of data coalescing job in the process bar
at the bottom of the window.
3.3.1.4 Backup Data Import
Backup Data Import allows administrators to import backup data copied or pruned from other
logical devices to another location on the same server or among different servers.

3.4 DocAve System
The DocAve System section is designed to allow for customization of DocAve, and is capable of
configuring DocAve system accounts and its settings, backing up\restoring DocAve system, and
specifying a location for CA Admin Search results. DocAve System is setup into four sections:
Account Manager, System Recovery, System Settings, and User Data.
3.4.1 Account Manager
In DocAve v5, you can create groups and users. You will assign specific rights to each group, and
then add users to groups to assign them the specified permissions. This allows you to easily control and maintain the access rights to DocAve from a central location.
Please be aware that only the user(s) in a group with the right to update the Account Manager
will have the right to edit users and groups. The users in the DocAve Administrators group will
always have this right.
3.4.1.1 Groups
There are two kinds of groups in DocAve: Local Groups and Active Directory (AD) Groups.
Local Groups
You can create local groups in DocAve and assign a series of rights to the group. You can also
add users to a specific DocAve group. This is the only way you can assign rights to users.
There are several built-in groups, including Administrators, Managers, and Operators. They have
pre-defined permission levels and cannot be deleted.
Administrators: owns full and global access rights to any feature in any module. This group is
never editable, which indicates you cannot delete any group rights or specify this group to any
farm.
Managers: editable built-in group with full access to the Control Panel only.
Operators: by default, has no permissions configured.
Active Directory Groups
Page 94
2001-2010 AvePoint, Inc. All rights reserved.
DocAve v5 User Guide
Back to Table of Contents
DocAve can fully integrate with Windows Active Directory. You can assign AD groups a series of
rights and permissions, which will then apply to all users within this group.
Please note:
•
•
The current server must belong to the same domain as the AD.
Adding a domain user will automatically add its group in DocAve, with all associated
permissions during login.
*Note: If a domain user belongs to many groups, they will be granted random permissions from
all groups when logging in.
3.4.1.2 User
There are two kinds of users in DocAve: Local users and AD user.
Local User
Both a username and password are required to log in and use DocAve. The system only has one
local user and its password respectively named “admin” and “admin.” The “admin” user has full
rights and this account owns editable password however this account cannot be deleted. Logging
in as the “admin” will allow you to create other users and assign specific rights to those new
users. New users can also have the same rights as an “admin” user or they can be restricted
from certain actions by limiting their rights.
For example, if you create a username “user1” and assign the limit as “Item Level Backup,” when
they log into the system it can only perform Item Level Backups instead of other functions (such
as Site-level Backup, Item Level Restore, etc.)
AD User
AD users can function equally to the local users. It can own full control or get restricted from certain permissions to the DocAve globally or some farms in DocAve. The differences between AD
user and local users mainly lie in the login mode, creation, and edition. For more information on
this, please check the following sections: Login Modes, Enable Active Directory Integration, Creating a New Group or User, and Editing a User.
*Note: You cannot directly assign permissions to a single user as it is its group that determines
its right level. Also, you can add local and AD users together to the same local group. However,
DocAve does not support adding users to AD group.
3.4.1.3 Login Modes
There are two kinds of login modes: “Local User” and “AD User” login.
Page 95
2001-2010 AvePoint, Inc. All rights reserved.
DocAve v5 User Guide
Back to Table of Contents
Local User Login
A local user is also called a “DocAve User.” This should be created and added to a DocAve group
first. To log in DocAve with a local user account, please check the instance below:
Initially, a DocAve user can only use the local user mode to login, with the initial username and
password respectively being “admin” and “admin.” This account is pre-stored on the local database since the installation of the system and cannot be deleted.
When logging in as a local user, remember to choose “Local System” mode at the login page.
*Note: You will be only provide two more chances to log in DocAve v5 once your password is
proved to be incorrect. Once your login fails anyway, please click the hyperlink to write an email
to your DocAve Administrator.
AD User Login
If you want the system to support AD user login mode, you need to perform the following steps:
(3-24) Support AD User Login Mode

When installing the system, both DocAve Manager and Agent, input a
Domain Username and a corresponding Password.
2
After logging in as a DocAve user of the DocAve Administrator group,
or the user that has the right to manage accounts (initially you will
only be able to use the admin account), choose an AD user and add it
to a group. The AD user will have the rights to log into the DocAve system.
When logging in as an AD user, remember to choose the corresponding domain from Log on to
drop-down box at the login page.
3.4.1.4 Enable Active Directory Integration
This option is essential for the users to log on to DocAve under domain mode. If you want to create an AD user or group, you must enable the active directory integration to configure the corresponding domains. The domains saved after the configuration will provide the user with possible
login methods.
To enable the active directory integration, please follow the steps below.

4. Report Center
The DocAve Report Center provides valuable Business Intelligence about your SharePoint deployment and your DocAve infrastructure. There are three core areas of information provided by this
module:
•
SharePoint Infrastructure : This area offers real-time monitoring on your SharePoint
platform and servers, including your SharePoint topology, index crawl status, CPU and
memory usage, and other important aspects relating to your SharePoint deployment’s
health (which encompasses the features formerly found in Discovery). This also
allows you to report on more common administration-based reports such as storage
trends or difference reports.
•
Usage Analytics : This area allows you to analyze how your SharePoint deployment is
being utilized. You can use reports in this section to track user activity, behavior, and
other common questions found pertaining to the overall success of a SharePoint
deployment.
•
DocAve Reports : Use this section to run a report on DocAve’s overall health and use.
Track admin user activity, monitor the storage use of your data storage drives, and
find out other essential information to keep your DocAve platform running smoothly.
All of these areas leverage the DocAve Reporting Service and all corresponding application databases underneath to run these reports. Please see the first section below regarding installation
and configuration of these reports.
4.1 Configuring the Report Center
Once you have installed the DocAve Report Service, you need to configure several settings to
leverage the features and alerts available. The sections below provide an overview of the installations and basic settings.
4.1.1 Installation
DocAve Reporting Service must be installed and configured with the manager installation package prior to using the features under Report Center. In addition, SQL Reporting Services is
required to export any of the data from the Report Center graphs and tables. For the information
about how to install report service, please refer to “DocAve Manager Installation” section.
In order to leverage real-time monitoring of your SharePoint infrastructure, a report center agent
must be installed on all servers that you require data from. For instance, an agent type can be
deployed on the SharePoint Index Server to obtain data regarding the SharePoint indexing status.

DocAve Report Center leverages two basic collectors to extract data for the pre-generated
reports. The Performance Collector allows you to pull data regarding your CPU and Memory

The SharePoint Collector provides the fundamental data for several other features in the Report
Center, collects the number of the checked-out documents as well as loading time data, data
storage size and distribution for site collection under the farm DocAve agent installed on. By

5. Data Protection
The Data Protection module contains the Automation Center, the Custom Backup Builder, High
Availability, and the Restore Controller. The sections below will detail the functionality of each.
5.1 Automation Center
The Automation Center allows you to perform automated SharePoint backups on site or site collections while still maintaining item level granularity on restore. It is the “intelligent approach” to
protecting SharePoint content and optimizing storage resources. In order to utilize the Criticality
Matrix, you only need to define the business importance of each site or site collection and allow
DocAve to automatically track usage activity for the content within that site. By combining these
two criteria, each site is automatically associated with its appropriate pre-defined backup template.
5.1.1 About the Criticality Matrix
The sections below will introduce you to the concept of Business Importance and the Criticality
Matrix interface.
5.1.1.1 Overview of the Criticality Matrix Concept
Each cell of the matrix represents a separate “ranking” and behind each cell lies your SharePoint
content categorized by its appropriate ranking (more on enabling the content later). The ranking
is composed of two values: the amount of activity / modifications your SharePoint site receives,
and the Business Importance to your organization. This means that the most important content
in your organization will be on the right of the matrix (i.e., payroll sites), while the least important sites will be categorized on the left (i.e., my-sites). Likewise, the most actively used content
will appear on top of the matrix, while inactive or slightly used content will appear on the bottom.
Once the contents of your SharePoint farm have been categorized, you can then roll out “templates” to cover each cell of the matrix. This will allow you to concentrate your most frequent
backups to only content that is either highly modified or of high importance, and allows you to
create infrequent backups for content that you know has very little business importance or activity.
For more information regarding effective SharePoint backup strategies, please read the additional
literature available on the AvePoint website.

Back to Table of Contents
5.1.1.2 Overview of the Criticality Matrix Interface
The Criticality Matrix is shown in the figure below:
Along the top of the GUI you will notice several tabs. These tabs represent all of the SharePoint
farms with registered DocAve Backup Agents installed, as well as an additional “Sandbox Matrix” which represents the editable interface for setting up the Matrix of all farms. Using this
interface, you can monitor the distribution and backup coverage for each farm and alter your
backup strategies accordingly.
The principle areas defined above are as follows:
•
Settings : The area at the top of the GUI allows you to configure all settings regarding matrix updates and management settings. These will be described further in later
sections of this guide.
•
Criticality Matrix : The center of the GUI shows the Criticality Matrix and all appropriate axis values / settings.
•
Templates / Profiles : The area at the top right of the GUI represents the available
backup templates and profiles available for applying to the matrix. The templates
work on the cell-level of the matrix, while profiles represent all matrix settings, including applied templates.
•
Preview Tree : The tree shown in the bottom right of the GUI will show the entire
SharePoint farm, including details regarding which cell / template each node is covered by.
*Note: The screenshot and description above represents the “Sandbox - Matrix”. The matrix for
each farm is similar, except it is in “read-only” format.

5.1.1.3 Viewing the Contents of a Matrix Cell
After you have performed the steps in the sections below regarding activating content for the
Criticality Matrix and assigning a “Manage Level”, DocAve will automatically assign the content to
the appropriate cell. Depending on which managed level is used, you will either see a breakdown
by site collection or by site.
To view the contents of an individual cell, click the Preview icon on the cell you wish to view. A
pop-up window with a tree view of all contents with this ranking will be displayed. The tree will
have the granularity level to which your “Manage Level” is set.
5.1.1.4 Viewing the Plan Details of a Matrix Cell
Each matrix cell can represent an individual backup template. Each template is configured as a
backup plan, with drive locations, filter policies, schedules, etc. In order to view details regarding
the template applied to a specific cell, click the icon . The Cell Details page provides all relevant
information with regard to the activity and status of the Cell and its content. This includes the
data configuration, previously run schedules and upcoming ones, and the status of the most
recent jobs. To return to the matrix, simply click the title-bar or down-arrow in the window to collapse the Cell Details page.
5.1.1.5 Viewing SharePoint Coverage
On the farm preview window in the lower-right corner of the Criticality Matrix screen, you are
able to view all the sites / site collections organized as a tree. Click on the farm name to expand
the content.
In addition to checkboxes (which will be described later), each site or site collection within the
selected farm has a colored box representing its coverage level in the Criticality Matrix. The color
of this box corresponds with the color of the template applied to that node’s cell. By hovering
over this colored box, you will be able to see the exact location in the matrix for this node, represented by coordinates of the form Business Importance * Modification Frequency.
*Note: You must have applied templates and set the business importance for sites in your farm
prior to viewing the information above.
If you wish to view a comprehensive table showing sites with their importance setting, last modification frequency, cell location, and template details, you can use the preview tree so select any
sites or site collections in your farm. After clicking the icon in the top right of the preview frame,
a window with a downloadable report will open.
5.1.2 Configuring Content for Automation
Page 175
2001-2010 AvePoint, Inc. All rights reserved.
DocAve v5 User Guide
Back to Table of Contents
In order to be automated, sites must first be ranked according to Business Importance. By
default, all content within SharePoint is given a business importance of zero (0). This means that
the DocAve Criticality Matrix will not include this in its intelligent backup strategy. In order
include any Site or Site Collection into the Criticality Matrix backup routine, you must prescribe it
a business criticality above zero within either the DocAve product or a SharePoint web part.
5.1.2.1 Setting the Business Importance in SharePoint
In order to set the importance directly from SharePoint, a web-part must first be installed. This
can be installed through the DocAve Central AdminInstallation Tool. This specific option is always
enabled for use, regardless of your license. Other features of Central Admin will be disabled
unless otherwise licensed.

5.1.3 Configuring the Matrix Settings
Page 180
2001-2010 AvePoint, Inc. All rights reserved.
DocAve v5 User Guide
Back to Table of Contents
Since the templates, axis settings, and manage levels for each matrix (as well as the other
options) can each affect the backup policy for your farm in significant ways, all editable functions
have been placed in the Sandbox - Matrix. This mode allows you to preview how each change
will affect your farm’s backup coverage before it takes effect.
Before configuring these settings for the matrix, you should be familiar with the definitions
below:
•
Criticality Matrix Cell : Each cell within the Criticality Matrix represents a site or site
collection’s ranking, determined by its corresponding business importance and modification frequency.
•
Templates : Backup Templates represent the implementation for your backup strategy, and can be defined and applied to each cell of the matrix.
•
Manage Level : You may set the Manage Level to either the Site or Site Collection
level. This determines whether content will be analyzed and distributed in the Criticality Matrix cells as individual sites or site collections.
•
Modification Frequency Axis : The vertical axis of the Criticality Matrix measures the
Modification Frequency of content within each site or site collection. This information
will be automatically collected for sites with a defined business importance, and will
be gathered as frequently as the Matrix Updates are specified. For more information
on configuring this axis, see the sections below.
•
Business Importance Axis : The Horizontal axis measures the pre-defined Business
Importance of the site or site collection. For more information on configuring this axis,
see the sections below.
•
Business Rule : The Business Rule option will allow you to define the rate at which
sites are upgraded or downgraded in business importance due to activity or inactivity.
DocAve can also disregard modification frequencies that occur during pre-selected
dates and times.
In order to perform backups from the Criticality Matrix, you will need to define “Active Templates”. These are described in the Template Builder section of the User Guide.
All of the settings listed in the section below can be found by navigating to Data Protection >
Automation Center > Settings.
5.1.3.1 Business Rule Engine
When users are asked to rank their sites in SharePoint, the natural response will tend towards a
higher importance than may be appropriate for their site. Additionally, project sites may be created with a very high importance, but after the completion date the activity and importance may
drop. As a result, the Business Rule Engine will allow you to specify rules to upgrade and downgrade the importance.
Page 181
2001-2010 AvePoint, Inc. All rights reserved.
DocAve v5 User Guide
Back to Table of Contents
The Rule Engine tab under the Settings page is the interface used to build rules governing the
movement of a site along the Business Importance axis. The options are broken into sections to
help in creating rules.
*Note: Because of the customizability of the rules, the options must be set for each farm individually. Although each farm may have multiple profiles defined, one profile cannot work for multiple farms.
Business Importance Update Rules
The general rules can be defined to either upgrade or downgrade importance based on modification times. For information on how to configure this section, see the table below:
(5-5) Configuring the Business Importance Update Rules
Step
1
2
3
Action
Select a farm from the Farm drop-down on top of the interface.
To upgrade and downgrade the importance, select the check boxes
next to the appropriate line. You must specify a threshold for a site to
upgrade and downgrade its importance, which will be set as either a
number of modifications or a percent modified based on the current
modification frequency axis settings of your farm.
*Note: To avoid frequent changes of your business importance values, you should monitor the activity of your SharePoint environment
and adjust these settings according to your needs. Also, if you change
your axis values from number of modifications or percent of content
modified, you should readjust these profiles.
Use the “Exclude Modification Frequency Values” section to ignore
excessively low or excessively high modification frequency values during a specific date range.
Using the checkboxes, select either the days of the week to ignore on
a regular basis (such as weekends).

You can also specify date-ranges to ignore (such as company holidays
or planned maintenance times) by using the calendar icons and the
Add and Delete buttons.

To lock the site according to a specific user, use the checkbox and the
fields provided next to the owners and administrators fields. You can
enter multiple users by separating them with a semicolon (‘;’).
*Note: You can also search the active directory or verify usernames
by selecting the “
“icons.
To lock the site by selecting the individual site, use the checkbox and
click Browser to select the site from the farm’s tree in the pop-up. If
you have a site locked but the user switches the site collection manage
level, DocAve will automatically lock the site collection.
6
Select Business Important by checking the corresponding check-box,
and select a email notification profile from the drop-down box. It will
send the email to the recipient when the business important upgrade
or downgrade.
7
Click the calendar icon
next to the Update Business Importance
field. In the pop-up calendar/clock window provided, set a date/time
you wish the update to execute. Click OK.
Specify the interval at which the update will occur, following the start
date/time. Choices are: every Hour, Day, Week, and Month.
8
*Note: If you set the Update Business Importance frequency to a
shorter interval than your matrix is updated, this value will automatically update on every matrix update, not sooner.
9
Click Save to save the profile for use in the matrix.
5.1.3.2 Editing Axis Values
The Axis settings tab contains two sub tabs, one for Modification Frequency, the other for Business Importance. The table for editing axis values behaves in the same way for each.

5.1.3.3 Modification Frequency Settings
When you configure the modification frequency, you must specify the following settings:
(5-8) Modification Frequency Settings
Step
Action
Choose from either Percent Modified or Number of Modifications from
the modification frequency axis.
1
•
Percent Modified : This will offer a ratio of the number of
modifications averaged over the size of the site in items.
This is the default value and the easiest way to break the
axis up into a reasonable scale.
•
Number of Modifications : This will allow you to view the
number of modifications. This is the most flexible option for
the axis settings, but it is necessary to guage this setting
for each environment. For instance, one site may have 5
modifications per day in a small environment, but an large
site could have 500.
There are advantages and drawbacks to each method. The percent
modified setting may be the easiest to scale, but be inaccurate for
sites with versioning enabled or infopath sites (where the number of
objects increases with each modification). The number of modifications will be the most accurate representation of the activity of the
site, but may take a good deal of tracking to pick accurate axis values.
2
Set the Scaling Factor in the space provided. In order to make the axis
more meaningful, the number of modifications (or the percent modified) can be represented in number of changes per hour, day, or week.
3
Use Save to save the axis profile.
5.1.3.4 Business Importance Settings
The business importance settings are very simple to set up, and represent the range of importance settings from one to ten. You can save multiple axis profiles.

5.1.5 Best Practices for Configuring the Criticality
Matrix
Although you can configure your matrix in any order you choose, we recommend the following:
•
•
•
Page 188
Analyze the needs of your farm and determine the ideal Manage Level. In order to
manage your backup plans and policies with the most discrimination and flexibility
between plans, we recommend setting this to the “Site” level. In general, this will
allow you to set importance for individual project sites, meeting sites, and other collaboration spaces. It will also target the most active sites very specifically, allowing
you to save backup space with your frequent backups.
Analyze the size of your environment and the number of backup plans you intend to
use. By default, your matrix will be set to 3x3. This will break up your environment
into 9 different jobs, and should be sufficient for most uses. However, if you have a
larger environment and wish to break your content into smaller jobs with greater discrimination, we recommend increasing the number of axis values. The maximum
matrix size is 6x6.
Have your administrators rank the business importance of their own SharePoint sites
or site collections using the Business Importance web part, or submit rankings for you
to enter them through the DocAve console. We recommend offering guidelines, such
as My-Sites being given a 1 or a 2, and your legal / payroll sites being given a 10.
These should be customized according to your organization.

Configure templates to meet your SLA needs and according to the size of your matrix.
The most typical configuration appears in this picture, with the templates applied
symmetrically on the diagonal. You should count on having one or two templates
including frequent (hourly) incremental backups and daily fulls, a template with daily
incrementals and weekly fulls, and one with weekly backups and monthly fulls (if not
less frequent).
Decide whether you wish to monitor your modification frequency based on number of
modifications or percent modified. Although percent modified may seem to be the
simplest implementation in finding appropriate intervals, there are drawbacks. Sites
that are constantly generating new items (i.e. document workspaces with versioning,
infopath form sites, etc.) without proper pruning in SharePoint will typically dip closer
towards the bottom of the matrix over time. For this reason, we recommend auditing
your sites to obtain a raw number for average modifications for your environment.
This will help you set the high, medium, and low thresholds during the initial setup
and allow them to be the most accurate.
Set the update frequency of your matrix. It is important to remember that this matrix
is intended to only show data trends, not real-time data regarding SharePoint. Changing backup plans as frequently as would be required of real-time or even daily
updates is not recommended, which is why the matrix can only be updated on a
weekly or a monthly basis.

Back to Table of Contents
Workflow State
In order to support backup and restore for most customizations and workflows:
•
•
•
The backup plan defined by the user must include the site collection (or content database in platform level backup) containing these customizations, as well as the related
resources for these customizations on the front-end.
At the time of the restore, customizations may require front-end resources that do not
exist on the destination front-end server(s). These must be searched / restored first.
This can either be done through the platform level backup’s front-end restore capability, or may need to be re-installed to the front-end directly via a separate installer (if
the customization originally came as a part of a separate application).
Only in-place restore at site collection or database level is supported.
All customizations and workflows are not guaranteed and will not be covered by this backup due
to the flexibility of SharePoint and the lack of unified deployment strategies. As a result, it is
impossible to programmatically detect the links to external sources (either application databases
or front-end files) that are common in customizations, workflows, and web parts are as follows,
such as:
•
•
•
Front-end resources or separately installed packages
The SharePoint GUID and/or URL of any objects associated with the customization
(list items, images, documents, etc.)
External SQL databases for management of workflows or states
For issues that depend on the GUID or URL, an in-place restore at the site collection / database
level will keep these parameters intact. Other parameters will not be automatically covered.
However, you are encouraged to use DocAve to test the backup and restore of your workflows or
other customizations.
5.2.2 Difference between active / inactive templates
Active templates are used for both Business Important mode and custom backup mode. When
you want to create a new active template, you need to select a color by clicking the box next to
Active Template Color. If you have assigned a color for an active template, the color which you
have used will no longer appear as a color choice.
Inactive template are only used for custom backup mode. If you want to create a new inactive
template, you need to keep the Active Template Color box blank.

•
Full : A full backup of the selected source.
•
Incremental : A partial backup where only data that has
been added since the last incremental or full backup is
backed up.
•
Differential : A partial backup where only data that has
been added since the last full backup is backed up.
*Note: Frequent consecutive differential backups have a tendency to
backup the same data over and over again and fill server space
quickly. For best results if conducting high frequency backups, it is recommended to use incremental backups. Incremental backups saves
time and storage space by backing up only the differences between
incremental backups, instead of backing up the entire source location.

DocAve v5 User Guide
Back to Table of Contents
DocAve v5 Custom Backup Builder contains two types of backup function: Granular Backup and
Platform Backup. It allows administrators to backup their SharePoint environment on any level,
from an entire Farm down to a specific Folder/ List.
According to Microsoft, STSADM backups are not recommended for sites greater than 15 GB. As
a result, the Site/Site Collection backup restore levels, which leverage STSADM, are not recommended for use in these cases. We recommend using Item Level or Platform Level backups in
most instances, both of which offer the ability to restore on the Site/Site Collection level. These
modules offer significant advantages in speed and in granularity of backup plans.
5.3.1 Granular Backup
You can set up backup plans on three levels: Item; Site; and Site Collection.
5.3.1.1 Basic Options
In order to configure a new backup plan, you must first configure several settings in the control
panel, listed below. Where necessary, links are provided to the control panel.

5.3.2 Platform Backup
Platform Level Backup is a Farm-level recovery solution which enables SharePoint Administrators
to backup Web Applications, Content Databases, search and index servers and Front-End servers. Platform Level Backup can also backup file system resources on front-end servers.
For the minimum permissions required, please refer to the Section “Required Permissions for the
DocAve Software Agents” of this Manual.
5.3.2.1 Installation
Before the administrator can use SharePoint Platform Level Backup, the Platform Level Backup
module needs to be enabled.
*Note: When you setup the DocAve Agent on a SQL server, please make sure the agent host
name is a hostname not the IP address. If you setup it as a IP address, it will cause some issues.

“Member Agent”.
This component can be installed on any server in
the SharePoint Farm. For example, Platform Level
Backup Member Agent can be installed on the
Database server, Index server and/or Front-end
server.
Click Confirm to finish the configuration and restart the DocAve Agent
Services.
DocAve Platform Level Backup loads and browses for the Member Agents through the Control
Agent. It also performs backups for both Control and Member Agents.
*Note: Platform Level Backup supports SQL clustering. If cluster failover support is required, a
member agent must be installed on each SQL cluster node, otherwise a member agent only

needs to be installed on the active node. When configuring the member agent, be sure the
‘Agent Name’ field matches the cluster physical node name.
Additionally, the DocAve agent account must have the following permissions:
•
“View Server State” permission on SQL server to query the SQL cluster nodes.
The administrator must have the following general permissions to enable platform-level backup
(i.e. not only for SQL clustering):
•
•
•
•
Member of the local administrator group
Granted the following privileges in local security policy: “Act as part of the operating
system” and “Replace a process level token”. (log off and log back in to let these
changes take effect)
For a SharePoint Control Agent User, also needs SharePoint Farm Admin, SQL ‘Security Admin’ and ‘Database Creator’ roles, and SQL ‘View Server State’ permission
For a SQL Server Member Agent User, need SysAdmin server role
5.3.2.2 Basic options
The first and most important thing when constructing a new backup plan is selecting the various
options. Options available here apply to platform backup and must be configured ahead of time
in the “Control Panel.” Please refer to Section 3 of the manual for further description of platform
backup-related option configuration.
Each option is displayed as a drop down box. Each selection in the drop down box can be added
or modified from the “Control Panel.”
•
Agent Host : This allows administrators to specify an agent Host.
Data Manager:
•
Backup Method : The “Backup Method” drop-down box is where the administrator
can specify the method for backing up the database. Here DocAve v5 supplies two
options. One is VDI, the other one is VSS. The VDI method is selected by default. See
the section below for a description both of VDI and VSS.
•
Data Pruning : This is where the administrator can specify the pruning policy for the
data generated by this backup plan. By selecting a Pruning Profile, the administrator
can specify how long the data generated by this plan is retained. For more information on adding new profiles, please refer to Section “Data Pruning” of this Manual.
Please note that this feature is optional.
•
Logical Device : This contains a list of logical drive profiles that will designate where
the backup data will be stored. For more information on adding a new location for
backup data, please refer to Section “Device Manager” of this Manual.

•
Perform copy-only full backups : “Copy Only” will allow the user to only execute full
Platform Level backups. It will backup the database directory without any SQL transaction logs. It will avoid the influence of the database which is backed up by using the
SQL backup feature or the third parties software when restore the database.
•
Perform log backup after full backup : If you select this option, it will backup the log
after the full backup job completed. If you select the copy-only option, this option will
be disabled. By default, this option is checked.
VDI versus VSS
VDI option uses SQL Server Virtual Device Interface (VDI) to protect the SharePoint databases. It
is a flexible stream based backup/restore method.
VSS option uses Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) snapshot technology. A VSS
Backup will have less impact on the SQL server because the length of time to perform the snapshot is usually much shorter than a regular backup. In addition, it does not need to pause the
SharePoint indexing crawl during backup.
In order to use the VSS option for the Platform Level Backup module please make sure that the
following SharePoint hotfixes are applied:

If the first backup run is a differential or incremental backup, it will be forced to run
as a full backup.
After changing the attribute of a plan, such as adding a database, changing it into
copy-only, etc, you must save this plan again.
VSS supports multi-plan parallel running. Although you can create a multi-plan to
assign the task, these plans cannot be run at the same time.

Saturday.
5.3.3 Custom Backup CLI
DocAve Custom Backup supports the administrator to run the backup plan by using CLI (Command line Interface)
You need to configure DocAveBackup.bat under the directory AvePoint\DocAve\VaultServer\DocAveCommand\bin\DocAveBackup.bat
To run a granular backup job, execute the following command:
backup -t backupType -n planName
To run a platform backup job, execute the following command:
backup -t backupType -n planName -r restoreLevel
There are several settings you need to configure.
Basic Settings
Page 214
•
backupType : The type of the backup job.
backupType = “F” represents Full Backup Job
backupType = “I” represents Incremental Backup Job
backupType = “D” represents Differential Backup Job
•
planName : The name of the running plan.

if you want to run a platform backup job, you also need to specify the restore index level for the
backup job.
•
restoreLevel : The restore Granularity level of the job.
restoreLevel = “1001” represents No Index
restoreLevel = “1002” represents Site Collection
restoreLevel = “1003” represents Site
restoreLevel = “1004” represents Folder
restoreLevel = “1005” represents Item
restoreLevel = “1006” represents Item Version
After executing the command line, you can use the DocAveBackupJobReportCollector.bat to view
the job report.
5.3.4 Granular level backup vs. platform level
backup
DocAve granular backup and platform backup are all used to backup the content in SharePoint.
The Granular Backup provides the ability to utilize the DocAve Site Collection, Site, and Itemlevel restore granularities. The Platform Backup can perform full SharePoint farm-level backups
and restore different levels of SharePoint components from a single document version up to the
contents of entire farm.
For usability reasons, if the size of the destination you want to backup is large, the platform level
backup is recommended. For example, if you want to back up one site collection only, the
granular level backup is the best choise; if you want to back up an entire farm, the platform level
backup is recommended. For the performance reasons, if your aim is backup the destination,
restore the destination only when performing the disaster recovery, the platform level backup is
recommended; if your aim is restore the backup data, the granular level backup is the best
choise.
5.4 Restore Controller
After a backup plan has completed successfully, the backup data is ready for browsing. To perform a restore, enter the Restore Controller to begin browsing the backup data. In this section,
there are three kinds of the restore mode: Granular Restore, Platform Restore and Restore From
SQL Backup.
Some operations require additional settings that must be configured prior to restoring contents
to SharePoint these are described below in the “Settings” section.

For example, If you want to log in to find the latest copy of something, you’d want to see the
whole farm, not have to navigate to that individual backup job (historic view). You must also
point out the time-stamps in this view to see that you can view when each node was backed up

To ensure that all metadata and version histories will be restored, it is
very important to check both the Securities and Properties boxes when
selecting the content.
5.4.2.5 Restore Options
You can specify one out of three restore options from the drop-down list: Not Overwrite, Append
and Overwrite.
•
Not Overwrite : DocAve will not restore the content if it already exists on the destination. For example, if an entire folder’s content is selected for restore, but only one
document was removed from the destination folder, only the removed document will
be restored. Selected this option, a check-box Include Recycle Bin Data appears.
If select the Include Recycle Bin Data check-box and there are the items with the
same name in the recycle bin, it will not restore the data. If not, it will not check the
data in the recycle bin. By default, this check-box is selected.
•
Append : It will create a new item and restore the data to it whatever the item exists
in the destination.
*Note: This option is only used for item level.
•
Overwrite : DocAve will restore the content over duplicate content on the destination.
This will delete the content on the destination and replace it with the content selected
to be restored.
•
Overwrite by Modified Time : DocAve will restore the content over duplicate content
on the destination only when the modified time of the backup data is later than the
modified time of the destination. You can use this if you have restored content to
SharePoint through another method (i.e., farm-level or database-level restore) and
want to ensure that the destination has the latest data in tact on a granular level.
•
Replace : This option will delete all content in the container of the destination before
performing the restore. This can be used to remove unwanted content that will not be
deleted by the overwrite option. (This can be looked at as a Reset function, to restore
a list or library to it’s original state, removing any added contents since the backup
point selected for restore.)
*Note: By default Overwrite looks at items based on the ID metadata column. This can be
adjusted in the out-of-place restore controller to examine other columns, such as author, modified times, version numbers, or any custom columns defined in the destination list. In order to
access this, open the destination SharePoint tree, browse to a list, and use the
icon to open a
new pop-up. This will let you choose what columns are used for the Overwrite comparison.

destination; if there is a different type but with the same name column in the source, it will add
this item in the destination; if perform a restore from list to list without selecting any column as
the conflict rule, it will add this item in the destination.
5.4.2.6 How to perform a restore
At the bottom-right section of the Restore Controller, the type of restore (either In Place or Outof-Place) can be selected. An In Place restore allows the restore of backup data to its original

5.5.7 Helpful Notes on High Availability
This section will focus on several tips to fully utilize the High Availability solution.
5.5.7.1 Replicating SSO databases
In the situation where an attempt is made to replicate SSO databases but fails:
Check the domains of the two machines hosting the SharePoint environment. If the source and
destination machines are on the same domain, then the end user will not be able to replicate the
SSO databases. The reason for this is that DocAve will use native Microsoft SharePoint API in
Page 291
2001-2010 AvePoint, Inc. All rights reserved.
DocAve v5 User Guide
Back to Table of Contents
order to replicate the SSO, but the current SharePoint API has a limitation that will not allow similar domain replications.
5.5.7.2 High Availability module and differing SQL versions
In the situation when a replication fails:
The first thing to check is the current version of the end user’s SQL. The High Availability module
works on the database level, but there are limits to working on that level. If the end user has two
differing SQL versions, the High Availability module to fail during the replication process. For
example, if the end user’s production 2007 environment is using SQL 2000 and the development
2007 environment is using SQL 2005, a replication between environments is impossible because
of the limitations of SQL.
5.5.7.3 Setting up for High Availability Mirroring
In the situation that if High Availability Mirroring fails:
Make sure that the fully qualified domain name of the DocAve Agents on both the production and
the disaster recovery servers are reachable from each other. Configuring the fully qualified
domain name can be done on either the DNS or the Host’s file.
5.5.7.4 Log Shipping Versus SQL Mirroring
This section will focus on the differences between Log Shipping and SQL Mirroring. The main difference between the two is that Log Shipping is a schedule based replication while SQL Mirroring
is an event-driven (transaction level) replication.
For Log Shipping, the data synchronization between the production and the standby environment
is dependent on how frequently the replication can run and finish. If the user selects the “Always
Run” option, the data can be synchronized up to 10 to 20 minutes in difference. In normal situations, the difference between the production and the standby environment would be a difference
of a few hours.
SQL Mirroring is considered a transaction level replication which means that the standby database will be closely synched with the production database.
*Note: Log Shipping is considered a “warm standby,” SQL Mirroring is referred to as a “hot
standby.”
5.5.8 Troubleshooting High Availability
Page 292
2001-2010 AvePoint, Inc. All rights reserved.
DocAve v5 User Guide
Back to Table of Contents
Please refer to the scenarios below for common troubleshooting methods for the High Availability
module.
5.5.8.1 General Information
For simple troubleshooting needs:
•
•
Make sure that the SQL Server that is installed on the production and the standby
machines are using either the “Standard” or “Enterprise” editions. The High Availability module can only support these editions.
High Availability (HA) SQL Mirroring can co-exist with the Platform Level Backup module. However, in order for the Platform Level Backup and the HA module to co-exist,
the user must do the following:
(5-65) SQL Mirroring Co-exist With Platform Level Backup
Step
Action
1
Create a High Availability mirroring plan using the previous section as a
guide.
2
Execute the initial sync of the High Availability mirroring.
3
Proceed to run a Platform Level full backup.
*Note: If the user brings online the standby environment, then the High Availability SQL Mirroring must be synched again before attempting any other Platform Level Backups.
*Note: In order for High Availability to work, the database must be in “full” Recovery model,
otherwise the replication will fail.
However, please note that the SQL database being on “Full” Recovery will require more administrative overhead in order to manage the log growth.
5.5.8.2 Failure in loading the nodes on the High Availability module
If the account configuration information in the DocAve Control Panel -> Agent Monitor does not
have administrative rights to the SQL server, the nodes will fail to load in the High Availability
plan builder.

DocAve v5 User Guide
Back to Table of Contents
5.5.8.3 If there are errors in the DocAve Agent Event Viewer
There may be issues with the DocAve temporary staging location. Please refer to the scenarios
below:
Full Sync job requirements:
•
•
Please make sure that the production High Availability (HA) SQL Agent’s staging location contains enough hard disk space to cover the database backup size (with a 1 GB
buffer). For example, if the database backup size is 3 GB, make sure that the overall
production HA SQL Agent staging location contains a total of 4 GB of free space.
If the user decides to configure the standby HA SQL Agent’s staging location to be
stored on the same drive as the actual SQL database files, make sure that there is
enough hard disk space to cover the database backup size: the actual database size
plus a 1 GB buffer. For example, if the database size is 4 GB and the database backup
size is 3 GB, the hard disk must have a total of 8 GB free.
Incremental Sync job requirements:
•
•
Make sure that the production HA SQL Agent’s staging location contains enough hard
disk space to cover the log backup size with a 1 GB buffer. For example, if the log
backup size is 1 GB, the user must make sure that the overall production HA SQL
Agent staging location contains a total of 2 GB of free space.
On the standby HA SQL Agent’s staging location, make sure there is enough hard disk
space to cover the log backup size with a 1 GB buffer. For example if the database
size is 1 GB, make sure that the overall staging HA SQL Agent location contains a total
of 2 GB of free space.
Using a Network Location:
•
If you want to use a network location to store temporary backup or restore data,
please make sure to enable the “xp_cmdshell” on the Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Surface Area Configuration.
5.5.8.4 Log Shipping
Please refer to the information below for information on the High Availability Log Shipping
option:
•
•
•
Page 294
After the “Log Shipping” replication completes, the SQL database will show as
“Standby” on the SQL Management Studio.
If the database already exists on the standby SQL server, the sync job will fail with the
error “the database already exists.” In this case, please manually delete the database
on the standby server and try again.
Please make sure that the database recovery model is not set to “Simple” recovery
model or the “Bulk Logged” recovery model. Currently, the High Availability Log Shipping option will not support the “Simple” Recovery model or the “Bulk Logged” Recovery model.

5.5.8.5 SQL Mirroring
Please refer to the information below for information on the High Availability Log Shipping
option:
•
•
•
•
After the mirroring has completed, the database status on the standby database will
be marked as “Principal,” and the database status will be marked as “Mirror.”
In order to use the SQL Mirroring option, make sure that the production SQL and the
standby SQL are using SQL Server 2005 with the same edition and version. Also
please make sure that the SQL Server 2005 is using at least Service Pack 1. Finally if
SQL Server 2005 x32 is installed, this will only support 10 databases for mirroring.
This specification is actually a SQL Server 2005 limitation.
If the SQL Mirroring option fails with the following error in the DocAve Agent eventViewer : “The server network address ‘TCP://avepoint2007.msxml.com:5022’ cannot
be reached or does not exist. Check the network address name and that the ports for
the local and remote endpoints are operational…”
Then the user must clean up the failed mirroring. For this situation please consult an
AvePoint technical support representative in order to walk you through the SQL mirroring clean up. You can also use the “HAMirrorCleanUpTool” provided by technical
support.
“The server network address ‘TCP://avepoint2007.msxml.com:5022’ cannot be

5.5.8.6 Bring Online Issues
Please refer to the information below if there are issues in bringing a synched database online:
•
•
•
•
Page 295
If bringing online the Content Database fails, make sure that the there is a stable network connection to the database. Usually, if a “Bring Online” of a Content Database
fails, please refresh the GUI and attempt the process again.
If the synched database cannot be loaded in the High Availability recovery controller
then make sure that the database name does not already exist in MOSS 2007. Also
please check that the standby HA SQL Agent’s staging location contains the “.cfg” file.
This will be used for the “Bring Online” process
If bringing online the SSO Database fails, make sure the following information is the
same as the MOSS server: SSO Admin ID, SSO AppDef, and Admin ID (domain\username). Please make sure that Domain is the same as the MOSS server, otherwise this
misconfiguration will cause an error. Make sure that the Microsoft Single Sign-on Service is open and opened by the domain user.
If bringing online the SSP Database fails, make sure that the following information is
correct: SSP Name, SSP Admin ID (domain\username) and the SSP Admin password.
2001-2010 AvePoint, Inc. All rights reserved.
DocAve v5 User Guide
Back to Table of Contents
In general, make sure to enter all the information the same way as was used when creating the
SSP in SharePoint Central Administration for the first time. If the wrong information has been
entered then a DocAve pop-up will indicate an error in configuration.
After bringing the SSP Database online, the administrator will have to start the SharePoint search
services.
5.5.8.7 Prior to running first job check the following:
Verify there is enough disk space in cache location on the source and standby server. There
must be enough to hold a copy of the database plus 1GB of extra space. Example, database is
50GB - make sure there is 51GB in both locations. The location by default is the install directory
\\server\c$\Program Files\Avepoint\DocAve5\Agent\Temp. DocAve breaks the database down to
the default 20MB chunks in those directories and then rebuilds the database off those chunks.
In some cases the install drive will not be large enough so the path needs to be changed to a
network share. If using a UNC path the xp_cmdshell need to be enabled on the SQL Server.
You may run into an issue where the database is only 50GB for example, but the space allotted in
SQL is 150GB. DocAve checks that allotted space and will require 150GB free space be present in
the cache location. This is done as a worst case scenario since the MDF, NDF, and LDF files could
end up being a total of 150GB. If there is not enough space in the cache location the job will fail
and say there is not enough free space. This can be misleading if the database is 50GB and there
is 100GB of free space. The job will fail because the allocated space in SQL is 150GB. You can run

Verify that there is an empty web application for the content database and a separate empty web
application for the SSP. When bringing the SSP online verify that the account you are using was a
site collection administrator for the SSP in the source environment. If account is not a site collection administrator it will not properly create the SSP in the standby environment since that
account does not have permission to the database. You can verify by going to central administration -> application management -> site collection owners.

6. Administration
The Administration module is composed of modules designed to assist administrators in managing and optimizing their day-to-day SharePoint environment. This includes the SharePoint Administrator, Content Manager, Deployment Manager, and the Replicator. From a single interface,
administrators can manage and synchronize their entire deployment, whether it be a single farm
or comprised of hundreds of farms. DocAve lets administrators easily view, search, manage,
report, and replicate configurations, securities and content across all SharePoint assets.
6.1 SharePoint Administrator
SharePoint Administrator puts many of the jobs a typical SharePoint administrator performs into
a single, centralized user interface. It is composed of the Central Administrator, STSADM functions, Administrative Reporting, and User Clustering Web part.
6.1.1 Central Admin
The Central Admin interface allows you to perform common SharePoint administrative tasks by
either selecting content on your SharePoint tree or by searching for SharePoint content, users, or
shared security permissions.
SharePoint Administrator offers you a full granular view of your SharePoint environment, you can
expand each Farm, Web Application, Site, and on down to the item-level and perform all SharePoint administrator operations on the selected content.
For large SharePoint environments and known content (including Web Applications, Site Collections, Sites, Lists, Databases, and Folders), we recommend using the search mode for rapid navigation and management of settings.
To select content to perform actions on in the Central Administrator you will first use the tree filter mode to limit the scope of the content displayed in your farm. You may then either select the
content from the farm in this view, or use the Search Mode button to search for content.
6.1.1.1 Tree Filter
The Tree filter is best used when exploring large environments. By using the tree filter viewing
mode, you may limit the results by specifying particular agents, and selecting only the content
desired. This is done by clicking the Tree Filter button, and specifying the agents you wish to
examine.

After content has been selected, you can define the plan options.
Starting under the “Cluster Setting” section, you can group the users
to several clusters according the options Default, More, or Less. These
values are calculated by the total number of SharePoint users being
scanned. We suggest trying a few different settings to display the clusters in a form appropriate to your environment.
7
In order to store the results for the web part to reference, you must
specify a valid location in the “Network Share” path location. This path
must already exist and be accessible via a UNC path name. There is a
exclamation mark after the Test button which will disappear after a
successful test.
8
You can periodically calculate these clusters to incorporate any
changes that may occur using the “Schedule” section. You can specify
a start-time and an hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly interval. The
recurring interval is optional, and can be disable using the Only Once
option.

Once the web part is added, the result according to the User Clustering
plan you set up in DocAve is indicated in the chart. You should see several circles with various points within each.
By default, the point in center of this diagram represents the current
user, but you can select other points for the circles to center around.
The closer to the central point, the more similar of the permissions.
2
These circles and points are a graphical representation of how similar
each user is to the one in the center. Users within the circle can either
be on-top of the current user (exact same permissions), or slightly off
center (only similar permissions). Users located in other circles either
have nothing in common with the current user or only minor similarities. The closer a user is, the more similar they are.
You can also use the + or - icons at the top of the GUI to zoom in and
zoom out.
Page 351
3
By clicking a point, it will list the user name and the relevance of this
user to all others in the table. Their similarities are represented by a
percentage: users with 100% next to their name represent the exact
same permissions, while 0% will have no permissions in common.
4
You can add users represented in the table as a colleague to your
MySite by clicking the icon in the “Add as Colleague” column.

select other calculated options to reorganize the cluster, but
it cannot change the option in the user clustering plan.
For each option, you can select the Site Collection or Site by checking
the check-box on the data tree on the right. It will calculate the users
in the specified sites only.
6
You can choose to weight more heavily users with explicit permissions
of Default (all permissions), Contributor, and Reader. These can be set
under the “Configure weight value type for SharePoint Base permission” option. This can help you find users who are similar contributors,
or users who are similar in what they read.

This can either be done through the platform level backup’s front-end restore capability, or may need to be re-installed to the front-end directly via a separate installer (if
the customization originally came as a part of a separate application).
Only in-place restore at site collection or database level is supported.
All customizations and workflows are not guaranteed and will not be covered by this backup due
to the flexibility of SharePoint and the lack of unified deployment strategies. As a result, it is
impossible to programmatically detect the links to external sources (either application databases
or front-end files) that are common in customizations, workflows, and web parts are as follows,
such as:
•
•
•
Front-end resources or separately installed packages
The SharePoint GUID and/or URL of any objects associated with the customization
(list items, images, documents, etc.)
External SQL databases for management of workflows or states
For issues that depend on the GUID or URL, an in-place restore at the site collection / database
level should keep these parameters intact. Other parameters will not be automatically covered.
However, you are encouraged to use DocAve to test the backup and restore of your workflows or
other customizations.

6.2.6.4 Promote Multiple Site to Site Collections by using Configuration File
This function allows you promote sites to site collections using configuration file. By using this
function, multiple sites can be promoted to site collections under the destination web application,
with the flexibility of specifying destination managed path, content database and relative URL
can be specified. During the process, the managed paths and content databases will be created
automatically if not existing. This will make the SharePoint re-structure process much easier,
eliminating the need of manual and lengthy process of creating managed paths, content databases and moving destination Site Collections among content databases.
You can select a Site Collection or some Sites in it individually from the source, and specify a web
application where you want to promote the Sites of the selected Site Collection in the destination. Then generate a template configuration file, edit it and upload it to the plan. After performing the following steps, the selected sites will be promoted in destination as specified in

GlobalWildcardManagedPath : It is a global setting for managed path of the site collection in the destination. If you do not set a specific managed path in a “Web” node,
it will use this one as its managed path in the destination. Please note that it’s a Wildcard inclusion managed path.
•
GlobalContentDB : It is a global setting for ContentDB of the site collection in the
destination. If you do not set a specific ContentDB in a “Web” node, it will use this
one as its ContentDB in the destination.

•
Web Key : They’re the index of the web nodes, so please make sure they are in order
without duplicated integers.
•
SourceServerRelativeUrl : Used to specify the Site in source. We use the standard
Server Relative URL which begins with “/”, but can’t end with “/” (that is, truncating
the web application URL from site’s full URL). “/” will be used just only when the site
is top site of the root site collection of the web application.
•
DestinationManagedPath : Used to specify the Managed Path of the site collection in
the destination. If set it as null, the Managed Path in destination will be consistent
with SourceRelativeUrl, and its type is “Explicit Inclusion”. If configure it as root

ManagedPathType : To specify the type of the ManagedPath. It can only read two
characters, “W” represents “Wildcard Inclusion”, and “E” represents “Explicit Inclusion”. If use other characters, the program will report error. The attribute can take
effect only when the DestinationManagedPath is specified.
•
DestinationRelativeUrl : This attribute will not take effect if the ManagedPathType is
“E”. If it is the “W”, please assign it as a managed path relative URL without “/”.

The destination site collection’s managed path is determined by DestinationManagedPath from “Web” node if its value is not null.
The destination site collection’s managed path is determined by GlobalWildcardManagedPath if the value of DestinationManagedPath is null. Please note that it is a wildcard inclusion managed path and please make sure the value of
DestinationRelativeUrl is not null.
The Managed Path in destination will be consistent with SourceRelativeUrl which type
is Explicit Inclusion if the values of DestinationManagedPath and GlobalWildcardManagedPath are null.

the destination; if cannot find the ContentDB, it will create a new one on the server,
then add Site Collection to this new DB.
Specifying DB Server, but not ContentDB. It will find any Content DB in the destination which related to the Web Application on the server to add the Site Collection. If
there is no DB related to the Web Application, it will create a new content DB for the
Web Application on this DB server.
Specifying ContentDB, but not DBServer (not recommend). System will find the first
DB server of the Web Application in the destination, find or create DB.
Specify neither DBServer nor ContentDB. The MOSS will select DB automatically to

IncludeSunSites : To specify whether to move the subsites with their parent site into
destination. Two values are provided. If set the value as “true”, it will make the
selected site in source as root, and migrate all its subsites as sites to the destination
Site Collection with the original architecture. If set it as “false”, only the site selected
by the Web node without any subsites will be migrated into destination.

will have the set-coverage relationship.
The program will compare the sets of sites generated by the configuration file. If any
set-coverage relationship exists, the small set will be truncated from the larger one.
Every Web node represents a mapping from source to destination. These mappings
work in the serial way. We recommend you to configure these mappings as one to
one mapping. If you make multiple sources mapped to the same destination, the
operation will overwrite the previous one in the serial way, and then only the latest
mapping will take effect. If you make one source mapped to multiple destinations, the
source will be moved to different destinations.
*Note: Please make sure the DNS name and IP Address are mapped correctly in your environment.
*Note: When you want to create a Content DB which is not in Local SQL Server (the agent and
DB server are not in the same server host), please make sure the account which is registered in
the agent has enough permission for the DB server.
*Note: If you select a folder with several subfolder as the source and want to copy all the items
in this folder and its subfolder to the destination folder without keeping the folder structure, you
need to change the value of the attribute KeepFolderStructure in the ContentManager.xml which
is saved in ...\Program Files\AvePoint\DocAve5\Agent\data to False. By default, the value is True,
and this will keep the folder structure during the replicate job.

6.4 Replicator
DocAve Replicator enable the seamless migration of content from one location to another within
Microsoft SharePoint 2007. This replicator can be performed within the same SharePoint farm, or
from one SharePoint farm to another. Replicator is a powerful tool and is considered real-time,
live copy because no backup is needed. You can replicate at the same level.

6.4.1 Replicator Installation
Before using Replicator, make sure that it is installed and enabled within the “DocAve Agent
Configuration Tool.” Under this tool, ensure the “Replicator” option is selected for each agent.
To properly use Replicator, a DocAve Agent should be installed on each front-end web server.
This is required in order to perform cross farm replications.
6.4.2 Layout, Features, and Options
Replicator can copy specific content from one location to another. Although it does have scheduling options, it is not meant to perform “automatic” real time replication of an entire SharePoint
farm.
The key use of Replicator is to allow the administrator to copy documents, libraries, sites, configuration, settings, securities, and users from one location to another seamlessly and quickly. Typically, the administrator must first backup the content and then perform an out of place restore.
This requires the administrator to go through a two step process in order to copy content. With
Replicator, the administrator has a simple and easy-to-use interface that allows the process to be
done in one step.
6.4.3 Settings
Before you run a replicator job, you should configure some settings first. It has three settings:
Global Settings, Plan Settings and Mapping Settings.
6.4.3.1 Global Settings

Workflow State
In order to support backup and restore for most customizations and workflows:
•
•
•
The backup plan defined by the user must include the site collection (or content database in platform level backup) containing these customizations, as well as the related
resources for these customizations on the front-end.
At the time of the restore, customizations may require front-end resources that do not
exist on the destination front-end server(s). These must be searched / restored first.
This can either be done through the platform level backup’s front-end restore capability, or may need to be re-installed to the front-end directly via a separate installer (if
the customization originally came as a part of a separate application).
Only in-place restore at site collection or database level is supported.
All customizations and workflows are not guaranteed and will not be covered by this backup due
to the flexibility of SharePoint and the lack of unified deployment strategies. As a result, it is
impossible to programmatically detect the links to external sources (either application databases
or front-end files) that are common in customizations, workflows, and web parts are as follows,
such as:
•
•
•
Front-end resources or separately installed packages
The SharePoint GUID and/or URL of any objects associated with the customization
(list items, images, documents, etc.)
External SQL databases for management of workflows or states
For issues that depend on the GUID or URL, an in-place restore at the site collection / database
level should keep these parameters intact. Other parameters will not be automatically covered.
However, you are encouraged to use DocAve to test the backup and restore of your workflows or
other customizations.

Enable Byte Level : Selecting this check-box will reduce the quantity of data in the
transmission by transferring only modified information from the source to the destination. It is a way of reducing the amount of data transmitted with each replication.
When a “Base File” (the original file) becomes a “Version File” (the current file after
modification), DocAve will only transfer the “Delta File” (all modified information)
from the source to the destination. After the transmission, the Delta File and the Base
File will merge into a Version File.

There are two methods to do the migration from SharePoint 2003 to 2007: Live migration and
backup migration. During Live migration, you can do the migration from SharePoint 2003 Agent

backup data to a staging location, and then import it from staging into the SharePoint 2007 environment.

This option copies only the changes to the destination (including creating / updating the Document Library, Folder, or Document) that have
been made to the source since the last migration
job. In the event where the source site is large,
choosing the incremental option will save significant time on replication.
*Note: If no full migration has been performed

7.5.3.3 Plan Builder
There are two methods to do the Lotus Notes migration in Plan Builder: Standard migration and
backup migration. During Standard migration, you can do the migration from Lotus Notes to
SharePoint directly. Using backup migration, you can export Lotus Notes backup data to a staging location and then import it from staging into SharePoint environment.
Backup migration is designed for the situation when the connection between Lotus Notes and
SharePoint is poor. In such cases, you can backup the Lotus Notes data to a machine, the connection of which to SharePoint is good and then import the staged data to SharePoint.
Standard Mode
To configure a plan mode migration, follow the steps below:

Truncated File or Folder Names
SharePoint is limited by two conditions:
Page 644
•
File and Folder Names : These cannot be greater than 128 characters, including the
file's extension. To compensate, DocAve truncates file and folder names during migration. You can configure this parameter in the <path> “Characters” setting. By default
the folders are truncated at 60 characters and files at 80 characters.
•
Overall URL Character Limit : Any full URL of SharePoint files or folders is limited to
255 characters. To compensate these cases, DocAve will automatically adjust the
structure of the eRoom contents, moving the file/folder to the destination’s parent
folder level. If the file/folder is moved to the root folder but its URL still exceed the
limitation, the migration will fail. For example: The eRoom URL is …/folderA/folderB/
contents.txt and the SharePoint target destination is …/folder1/folder2/:

Back to Table of Contents
If the migration to the path …/folder1/folder2/folderA/folderB/contents.txt
encounters the limit, we will first migrate the contents as:
i. …/folder1/folder2/folderA/
ii.…/folder1/folder2/folderB/contents.txt
If the migration to the path …/folder1/folder2/folderB/contents.txt still
exceeds the character limit, DocAve will adjust the migration to:
i. …/folder1/folder2/folderA/
ii.…/folder1/folderB/contents.txt
In the event that …/folderB/contents.txt still exceeds the character limit,
assuming this is now in the root folder, the migration will fail.
In order to see a report of all migration results, including the source path and destination, with
the results of any truncating actions taken, please download the detailed Job Report in the job
monitor.
*Note: Although SharePoint limits folder URLs to 255 characters and files to 260, some API may
count the “%20” encoded version of the blank space in the URL towards this limit.
7.6.3.2 Security Restore
This section will describe the security restore of some components in eRoom.
How to restore eRoom Role
Before you restore the Role of eRoom, you should navigate to DocAve v5 > Migration > eRoom >
Settings > Common Configuration > Security > Permission Replace Settings to setup the matchings. If the SharePoint Permission Level you configured is existing, it will not create a eRoom role
in Destination. If the SharePoint Permission Level you configured is inexistent, it will create a
eRoom role with the permission you configure in the “Permission Replace Settings”.
For the Customer role in eRoom, by default, we do not match any permission for it, but create a
permission level named as the name of eRoom customer role in destination, it has the permission of the customer role based on the role’s permission. For example, the customerRole1 is created by Coordinator, and the Coordinator match the Full Control permission. We will create a
permission level named customerRole1 with the Full Control permission in destination. If you
want match the permission directly, you can configure it in DocAve v5 > Migration > eRoom >
Settings > Common Configuration > Security > Permission Replace Settings.
How to restore eRoom Group
You can match the group in DocAve v5 > Migration > eRoom > Settings > Common Configuration > Security > Group Name Replace Settings. If you map the eRoom group to an existing
group in SharePoint, it will not create a new group in destination, and add the users of the
eRoom group to the group in SharePoint directly. If you map the eRoom group to an inexistent

How to restore eRoom build in group
eRoom stores all users into the three internal group according to the role (Coordinator/ Participant/ Observer). You can configure the matching in DocAve v5 > Migration > eRoom > Settings
