Before we are allowed (due to company policy) to install Quest Site Administrator for SharePoint 5.0 in our Production infrastructure, we need to have following technical/infrastructure information:
- Product Building blocks and/or technologies (Tomcat Vx.y, ...)
- Protocols used by product
- Ports used by product
- Connections to what SharePoint components
- Authentication mechanisms
- Other relevant technical information
Can you provide me that information? Or where can I find it? I've been searching but I can't find it.
For on-premises part:
Please read this:
Main protocol used by reports: TSQL - we read info from content databases.
We use HTTP to communicate between product components.
We call also Active Directory for several reports - we use LDAP there (activity dashboard, daily usage report)
And we request disk free space by WMI from SharePoint servers (servers report)
To apply modifications in SharePoint sites we use SharePoint Object Model
Windows scheduled tasks is used for policies and for CSV and SQL export
We use Apache NTLM module to authenticate user and then authorize access to requested report.
We support Claims-based + Windows Authentication web applications
Current version (5.1) does not have reporting database (we display live info). But it is possible to export reporting information to SQL.
For extensions we support REST API
Here is the overview picture:
Online version and Security Explorer is different story.
I think it's better to install 5.1 version. It was released recently.
As for tech info, I will provide it for you ASAP.
