1 © 2011 Autodesk Go Big or Go Home! Part 1 – Large Scale Autodesk Vault Deployments Irvin Hayes Jr. Technical Product Manager

2 © 2011 Autodesk Class Summary Learn how to deploy Autodesk Vault in an enterprise environment. In this class, you will learn how to install and configure global replication and scale it to the needs of the enterprise. Topics include disaster recovery/backup, replication strategies, and collaboration with remote workgroups.

3 © 2011 Autodesk Learning Objectives At the end of this class, you will be able to:  Describe how to setup Vault for collaboration in the enterprise  Scale replication to meet the needs of the enterprise  List the requirements for global replication  Backup and restore the enterprise environment

5 © 2011 Autodesk Basic Vault Configuration

6 © 2011 Autodesk Basic Vault Configuration  One physical server with all Vault components  Multiple clients connected to share and store files Web Server File Store Database

7 © 2011 Autodesk Vault Server Components  Autodesk Data Management Console (ADMS)  Internet Information Services (IIS)  Microsoft SQL Server®  File store

8 © 2011 Autodesk Remote Connections  Home office and remote user can connect through the Internet  Opening a port and a FQDN required

9 © 2011 Autodesk Secure Remote Connections  Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Certificate can be used to secure the connection

10 © 2011 Autodesk Separating Services  Separate Vault server components to improve performance  Components on dedicated servers get all server resources Application ServerFile Store ServerDatabase Server

11 © 2011 Autodesk Multi-site Architecture

12 © 2011 Autodesk Multi-site Architecture  Vault can scale with your organization  SQL Database is shared and files are replicated between sites

13 © 2011 Autodesk File Store Replication  Each site stores files uploaded by the local users  Files are replicated by a schedule or on demand  Server need adequate space for quantity of files Web/HTTP

14 © 2011 Autodesk File Store Replication Scheduling  Replication schedule at 12:00am  All folders are replicated  Optimize by specifying folders

15 © 2011 Autodesk Full Replication Architecture

16 © 2011 Autodesk Workgroup Site Terminology  Site – A location where the Vault server software is installed  Workgroup – Sites connecting to the same SQL database Site

17 © 2011 Autodesk Workgroup Site/Publisher Terminology  Publisher – the first SQL server configured  Subscriber – SQL servers replicating to the Publisher Site/SubscriberSite

18 © 2011 Autodesk Scale Vault to the Enterprise Upgrade

19 © 2011 Autodesk Deployment Planning Firewall Configuration Replication Monitoring Active Directory Network Quality CPU Memory Hard Drive Microsoft Windows Server Microsoft SQL Server Software Requirements Hardware Requirements IT Support Network Environment

20 © 2011 Autodesk Replication Setup

21 © 2011 Autodesk Replication Setup  Create a snapshot share folder  Enable Replication Workgroup Site/Publisher

22 © 2011 Autodesk Replication Setup  Install second SQL Server  Configure Publisher to connect to new Subscriber Workgroup Site/PublisherSite/Subscriber

23 © 2011 Autodesk Replication Setup  Install Vault Server Application Workgroup Site/PublisherSite/Subscriber

24 © 2011 Autodesk Replication Setup  Additional Sites can be added Workgroup Site/PublisherSite/SubscriberSite

25 © 2011 Autodesk Replication Monitoring

26 © 2011 Autodesk Replication Monitoring Tools  MS SQL Server Replication Monitor  Setup SQL Database Mail

27 © 2011 Autodesk How to Monitor  Setting warnings and thresholds  Viewing performance measurements  Viewing detailed synchronization statistics

28 © 2011 Autodesk What to Monitor  Imminent subscription expiration  Exceeding the specified synchronization time  Falling short of processing the specified number of rows in a given amount of time.  Snapshot Agent

29 © 2011 Autodesk Replication Warnings  Warn if a subscription will expire within the threshold  Warn if a merge length for LAN connections exceeds the threshold  Warn if rows merged per second for LAN connections is less than the threshold

30 © 2011 Autodesk Replication Subscription Expiration  Synchronization within the retention period  Default retention period is 14 days  Subscribers must be rebuilt if outside of period

31 © 2011 Autodesk Backup & Restore

32 © 2011 Autodesk Backup & Restore  Develop and test a backup and restore strategy  Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM) Workgroup Site/PublisherSite/SubscriberSite

33 © 2011 Autodesk What to Backup  All Vault databases: Knowledgevaultmaster, vaults & libraries.  System databases: Master & MSDB  Distribution database: Autodeskreplication  File Store  SQL snapshot folder  SQL Service master key

34 © 2011 Autodesk Restore Requirements  Restored to a computer with the same name  Same SQL Server edition as the original  Restored within 14 days  File store validation needs to be run

35 © 2011 Autodesk Keys to Success  Databases and file stores backed up regularly  Each site should backup their file store  Regular file store validation checks  Test environments  Regular monitoring  Constant synchronization within the retention period

36 © 2011 Autodesk Best Practices  Develop and test a backup and restore strategy  Create thresholds and alerts  Monitor the replication topology  Establish performance baselines
