Initial Configuration

Last modified



The initial configuration is different depending upon whether the user is using EBS or RBS. For each of these, the steps are outlined in  the following sections -

Initial Configuration - EBS

To perform the initial configuration when using EBS, execute the following steps.

 

1. On the SharePoint Central Administration page, navigate to 'Application Management' and click 'StorSimple SharePoint Database Optimizer (EBS)'.

 

2. Specify the UNC path of the BLOB store, and click the 'Enable' radio button as shown in figure 3. Note that the BLOB store must be shared and reachable by all the WFEs and the user account which is configured for the SharePoint farm must have access to the share. In addition, the BLOB store volume must be hosted on an iSCSI volume configured on the StorSimple appliance.
