4 Managing Microsoft Office SharePoint Server Content with Hitachi Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint and the Hitachi NAS Platform Implementation Guide As more content is added to Microsoft Office SharePoint Server libraries, SQL content databases can quickly grow, requiring constant review and analysis. Left unchecked, this database growth can become a problem. Larger SharePoint databases take longer to backup, longer to restore and can slowly degrade performance. This places a strain on the backup window and recovery time objectives. Maintaining infrequently accessed files on tier one storage resources can also raise the overall cost of the SharePoint infrastructure. SharePoint combats content growth with quotas to control database size. When capacity nears the quota, SharePoint alerts administrators, who must either reduce SharePoint content or resize databases and increase quotas. Using Hitachi Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint application, these quotas become easier to manage. Hitachi Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint solves the problem of continually expanding SharePoint databases with integrated SharePoint workflows that archive or migrate content to the Hitachi NAS Platform, powered by BlueArc. This also addresses the need for secure, long-term storage to satisfy compliance requirements and provides a single source for discovery searches for Hitachi NAS shares. This solution allows you to achieve the following goals: Reducing the size of production SharePoint databases Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint is installed as a SharePoint Web application and automatically migrates library files to secure selected target storage. The process of moving files to the Hitachi NAS is transparent to end-users. Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint replaces the migrated object with a reference to access the object at the new location This reduces the size of the SharePoint content databases, alleviating stress on the backup window, speeding SharePoint recovery, maintaining optimal end-user response times and freeing tier one storage for the most frequently accessed SharePoint files. In addition, the SharePoint library size limits are maintained with significantly smaller manageable quotas. Migrating for compliance Hitachi NAS Platform with optional WORM functionality provides secure target storage for migrating SharePoint library content to a targeted storage tier. Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint integrates workflows into the SharePoint farm to archive critical corporate files to the second tier Hitachi NAS file services shares. Compliance includes a retention period for the Hitachi NAS when WORM or write once license is deployed and configured. The target storage utilizes permissions with unique authentication set for each CIFS share. Migrating without archive compliance is accomplished with the use of network attached storage (NAS) such as the Hitachi NAS Platform without the WORM option. This function provides the same SQL sizing reductions while allowing library access to the external tier for quick retrieval of files. The migration also uses Windows authentication permissions set to each CIFS share attached. Supporting Search Microsoft SharePoint search crawls and builds index to support queries for both library and target storage data. 1
5 This document provides a solution overview and deployment information for Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint implemented with the Hitachi NAS Platform. It is intended for use by SharePoint administrators, storage administrators and any IT personnel involved with governance, compliance and management of SharePoint data. It assumes that readers are familiar with the Hitachi NAS Platform and SharePoint 2007 farm environments, permission processes and Active Directory security. Solution Overview The processes described in this document assume that the Hitachi NAS Platform and SharePoint 2007 farm are installed and available. Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint uses the permissions of the Hitachi NAS Platform share. Figure 1 shows the SharePoint farm infrastructure components that require coordinating when deploying Hitachi Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint. Figure 1. Hitachi Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint Solution Architecture Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint migrates files from SharePoint libraries to the Hitachi NAS Platform by supporting and assigning retention policies at file level. Files are migrated to the target storage individually or in bulk. After data is migrated, SharePoint can crawl content on the target storage, parse content to build a search index and allow full content search directly from the SharePoint library. Integrated into SharePoint is the support to also use RSS and ATOM feeds, which are formats for delivering regularly changing Web content for real-time publication and subscription to saved archive searches. Figure 2 shows the logical relationship between SharePoint and the target storage as set up by Hitachi Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint plus the client and GUI layers. The Data Discovery target storage might or might not be configured to all site collections and is only set based on the needs and requirements as determined by organizational goals for compliance and migration. Note that the targeted storage tier is determined at the site collection level and follows through the hierarchy down to multiple library levels. 2
6 Figure 2. SharePoint Solution Hierarchy Security Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint uses SharePoint s standard security concepts and structures. No external management requirements or overhead beyond the standard SharePoint site authentication and permissions are needed to manage libraries configured for Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint archiving. When a site library is provisioned, each user with access permission is given all library access without restriction to second tier target storage settings. The authentication to the shares is based on permissions with Hitachi NAS Platform EVS CIFS shares and NAS folder permissions; as long as the target storage is set up for a given library, access is approved. 3
7 Figure 3 shows EVS security settings for the Hitachi NAS Platform. All CIFS shares reside within an implemented EVS structure of file systems. Figure 3. EVS Security Settings Figure 4 shows CIFS share security with accounts that are allowed access permissions to the share. These permissions must be provided to the target storage settings of Data Discovery for SharePoint to allow data migration. Figure 4. CIFS Share Security Details Each SharePoint site within a site collection can have unique permissions to restrict access to authenticated users only. If you are using Kerberos or NTLM security, the users must reside in the Active Directory to access SharePoint. Access permissions can be set to read only, contributor (read/write) or higher level of collection administration. Sub sites can inherit permissions from the parent site or be unique. When a site library is configured using the Hitachi NAS Platform for the target storage, only those users with site and library access have permission to view this data through SharePoint. Migration Files are migrated to the target storage tier according to each SharePoint library s Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint action schedule settings. In the case of the Hitachi NAS Platform with WORM, you can also set how long files are retained in the target storage. After migration occurs into the Hitachi NAS Platform with WORM, files cannot be deleted until the retention period has expired. Sub folders automatically inherit the migration properties of a SharePoint library. Mass Migration Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint gives you an efficient mechanism for performing one-time migration of large numbers of SharePoint files. The Web application deployment can be configured for existing SharePoint libraries and custom settings can trigger the immediate migration of all library files. After a library is given a schedule, all files within all folders of that library migrate to the target storage according to that schedule. All of these files have the same retention values applied as originally set in the target storage schedule. 4
8 File Path Names File paths use the following universal naming convention (UNC) links for supported file shares. Documents archived to the Hitachi NAS Platform are stored in CIFS folders managed by Hitachi NAS EVS with the following naming structure: \\EVS IP Address\CIFS Share name\<folder structure of the document library> Note: Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint rejects migration of files from the same location with the same name. Stub Files in SharePoint After a SharePoint file is copied to the target storage, Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint sends the original file to the SharePoint site recycle bin and replaces it with a 1KB stub file. The stub file retains the metadata associated with the original file and has a pointer to the migrated file in the target storage. Users can access the migrated file from the stub file and can perform single file recovery. Single File Recovery Individual files can be recovered from the target store using single file recovery. The recovery process returns the file to its original location in the SharePoint library. Files written to the target store using retention cannot be overwritten. If you intend to return the recovered file to the target storage tier, the file must be renamed to eliminate a duplicate file name error and failure to migrate. The new file name can include the original file name as part of the new name to help an audience understand it is a duplication of a previously migrated file. Search Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint is integrated with SharePoint search to enable users to locate migrated files from target storage tier. The required setup includes creating crawls directly to the file shares at prescribed schedules and intervals. Search supports full content and file name queries. You can configure SharePoint search to crawl the archive libraries and stub file names. This enables users to perform queries to locate archived files using SharePoint search. For more information, see the Deploying SharePoint Search Crawls section of this white paper. Target Storage Deletion Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint can automatically delete documents migrated to the target storage that have no retention period specified or that are stored on WORM and are beyond their retention date. Installation Notes Hitachi Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint application software is installed on the SharePoint application server running the Central Administration service. After installation, the Web application replicates across all Web services front-end servers. The solution is deployed to individual sites by implementing the archive template to all new site libraries. You must reset Microsoft IIS to complete the Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint installation. The reset can be performed automatically as part of the installation process or deferred. It is important to follow all change control processes and rules for your site, because a Microsoft IIS reset, although only momentary, still disrupts access to SharePoint services. 5
10 The tested SharePoint configuration was built on Hitachi storage according to the information contained in the following documents: Implementing SharePoint Server 2007 with the Hitachi Adaptable Modular Storage 2000 Family Best Practices and Reference Architecture Guide Deploying Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 with the Hitachi Universal Storage Platform Family Reference Architecture and Best Practices Guide Deploying the Solution This section provides procedures for deploying this solution. Configuring the Hitachi NAS Platform The Hitachi NAS Platform includes a virtual management network and file systems including CIFS share. Hitachi Data Discovery for SharePoint maps these shares as target storage tiers and allows a workflow process to migrate data from the SharePoint library, minimizing SQL content database sizing requirements. This also reduced time for backups and recovery. If you want to use retention of migrated data, you must install the WORM license for the Hitachi NAS Platform and configure the file systems as described in this section. Using this technology ensures that your data is protected from changes and or deletion for the duration of a pre-defined retention period. Without the WORM license, no retention settings are allowed and therefore no protection is inherited or applied. Windows Kerberos security is integrated directly into the Data Discovery for SharePoint workflows allowing read/write access to the shares. No additional security configurations within SharePoint library are needed because security is set at the network shares. Setting Up File Systems for WORM This procedure assumes that the WORM license is installed on the Hitachi NAS Platform. To set up WORM functionality at file system creation, follow these steps using the Hitachi NAS Platform s GUI administration from the File Systems link: 1. Create a new file system by clicking the create button. A wizard to guide you through the file system creation steps launches. 2. Follow the wizard s prompts, being sure to select Strict Worm from the WORM drop-down menu on the wizard s Create File System screen. 3. Click OK. For more information, see the Hitachi NAS Platform Administration guide that accompanies the storage system or contact your Hitachi Data Systems account team. 7

17 Using the Solution The following sections describe the steps necessary to use Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint to reduce the size of SharePoint database. Reducing SharePoint SQL Database Size To reduce database size, you can migrate many files at one time. To perform mass migration of files from an existing library that is configured for archiving, follow these steps: 1. From the SharePoint Central Administration site, navigate to Application Management > Hitachi Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint Management > Action Schedule for Document Libraries. 2. Select a Web application from the Web Application drop-down menu. A list of deployed libraries appears in the lower half of the screen. 3. Click the Setup button for the document library you want to configure for migration. 4. Select Archive to Storage from the Choose your action drop-down menu. A list of scheduling options appears in the lower half of the screen. 5. Select scheduling options. 6. Click OK. Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint automatically archives non-migrated files in the library in accordance with the selected schedule. Adding Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint to an existing SharePoint library and setting the library s action schedule frequency to Now triggers immediate migration of all library files to the archive. For SharePoint libraries that do not currently have the Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint Web application deployed, follow the steps for setting up target storage settings in the Deploying Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint section. After the Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint Web application is deployed to the library, you can set up an action schedule to perform mass migration to the archive. Migrating Documents with Retention The procedures in this section describe how to archive SharePoint files for compliance from a new SharePoint library or an existing SharePoint library into the Hitachi NAS Platform with WORM target storage. Creating a New Site Library for Archiving This procedure requires specific permissions that are usually granted to site or site collection administrators. From a SharePoint site collection that has the Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint Web application deployed, use standard SharePoint workflows to create a new library and perform the following steps to create a new site library for arhiving: 1. Click the Site Actions link. A drop-down menu appears. 2. Choose Create and choose Site Library in the Libraries category. 14
18 3. Enter a library name and description. Use an intuitive naming convention. For example, If this library is to hold logistical procedures that are to be retained for six years in the archive, you might want to use Procedures-6Y as the library name. 4. (Optional) Click the Enable Document Version History check box if you want to use SharePoint version controls to maintain a history of file edits. 5. From the newly created library page, click the Settings link. 6. Click the HDD-MS Document Library Settings for Site Administration link. 7. Follow the steps for setting up target storage settings and action schedules for document library in the Deploying Hitachi Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint section of this paper. Using an Existing Site Library for Archiving This procedure requires specific permissions that are usually granted to site or site collection administrators. For existing SharePoint libraries that do not currently have the Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint Web application deployed, perform the following steps: 1. From an existing library page, click the Settings link. 2. Click the HDD-MS Document Library Settings for Site Administration link. 3. Follow the steps for setting up target storage settings and action schedules for document library in the Deploying Hitachi Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint section of this paper. Migrating Files to Target Storage Media To migrate files to the external share folder, follow these steps: 1. Navigate to the library folder. 2. Click the Upload link. 3. Click the Browse button to locate a file. 4. Select a file and click the Open button. 5. Click OK. The file is scheduled for migration to the Hitachi NAS Platform based on the schedule in the library s action schedule for document libraries settings. Manually Archiving a File To trigger migration of a file that exists in a library that has the Hitachi Data Discovery for Microsoft SharePoint Web application deployed, follow these steps: 1. In a library, hover over the name of a file and click the down arrow that appears to display a drop-down menu. 2. Choose Archive to HCAP/NAS from the drop-down menu. This action uses previously established retention settings. For more information, see the Setting an Action Schedule for a Document library section of this white paper. A Warning window opens with a Retention link and listing the retention period that you previously set in the action schedule. 15
19 3. (Optional) To change the retention settings for this file, click the Retention link, change the settings and click the Set button. To remove all retention, change the settings to 0. The Warning window displays. 4. Click the Archive button to complete migration. The file is moved to target storage. Recovering Files From Target Storage To return files from the Hitachi NAS Platform target storage to the SharePoint library, follow these steps: 1. Hover over the name of a file to be recovered and click the down arrow that appears to display a dropdown menu. 2. Choose Single File Recovery from the drop-down menu. Note: A message displays warning that an archived document is being recovered from the storage system to the document library. 3. Click the Recovery button to recover the file. You can now use SharePoint functions like editing on the recovered file. To return the file to target storage, you must rename it. 16
