which service uploads documents RRS feed

  • Question

  • The reason I ask is that the guy wants to buy only one copy of ForeFront for SharePoint for each farm.  So I'm wondering if the uploading of documents can be isolated.

    PS- I am not optimistic.  As I think about it I wouldn't imagine it to be an asynchronous operation which I imagine would be necessary to give it location.

  • I shouldn't have said PUT, it issues a POST.  WebDAV should be similar, use Fiddler2 to watch what happens when you upload a file.

  • They're uploaded via a PUT request to the Web Application which then transfers them to SQL.  ForeFront for SharePoint would be an appropriate product to protect the end user contents of the farm from a virus.

  • Trevor, is this true of all the various methods used in SharePoint to upload docs? e.g., WebDav

  • Hi,

    The document would upload to the SQL Database. Forefront security for SharePoint protects users from the virus attack.

    The Forefront for SharePoint realtime scan reads the antivirus configurations stored in the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server or Windows SharePoint Services configuration database, and not in a separate Forefront for SharePoint database. This means that you can view the configuration data from either the Microsoft Forefront Server Security Administrator or from the SharePoint Administrator, but it can only be modified from the SharePoint Administrator.

    Forefront for SharePoint also supports the Microsoft Forefront Server Security Management Console (FSSMC). FSSMC provides administrators with central installation and reporting functionality.

    While this appears to answer the question (no service handles document uploading) I think you guys missed the point.  My guy wants to buy one ForeFront per FARM vs one per SERVER.  Whether it's appropriate or how it's administered are discussions that don't seem topical to me.  I'm not understanding how those discussions apply to putting all the uploading on a single server.  The analogy is to putting the search service on a single server for the whole farm.

  • Talk to Microsoft Pre-Sales and Support about it - http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/contact-us.aspx.  I would likely install it on just WFEs, what ever end users directly interact with.

  • Thanks.  Again, the question is about how to avoid the plural -- WFE.
