  • Scheduling Admin Tasks
    this can be altered by accessing Start Enfold Server Enfold Server Configuration Utility then Tasks If you would like to change the time or frequency of these tasks use the Windows scheduled task interface This can be found in Start Settings Control Panel Scheduled Tasks from the Windows start menu Note The user who runs these administrative tasks should be the service user Those running Enfold Server on Windows 2003 will need to perform an additional step to make scheduled tasks work see previous topic above Although it is possible to run a Scheduled Task as a user with local administrator rights doing so is not recommended If you are unclear about how to configure a service user see server security Backing up data For details on backing up data please read the System Administration documentation The main issue here is to be sure you maintain proper system backups presuming that you have external or 3rd party backup software to do this If this is the case then you want to have your backup software backing up the rotated logs and backed up database Usage Tip The frequency of these scheduled tasks is conservative For example the default frequency of backups once per week may not provide enough data protection for your needs You can easily increase the frequency to every day or every two days For incremental backups the initial backup may take longer than succeeding ones The duration and CPU load of a backup process varies many incremental backups take only a minute or two to complete A backup scheduled task will take the Zope database and back it up to another file It only backs up the Zope database it does not backup log files configuration code or other applications you may have worked with Once this backup process is complete this copy can be backed up to another medium e g tape DVD The backups are by default placed in the Data directory of you Enfold Server install You can choose to have them backed up to a different location in the Enfold Server Configuration Utility program Start Programs Enfold Server Enfold Server Configuration Utility Tasks In case of a catastrophic failure you would need to be able to recreate not just this database but also configuration files and custom code Backup Recovery See Restoring Backups Logs There are two main logs written by Enfold Server a web access log Z2 log an event or error log event log All of these files can be found in the Client log directory of your install If you have more than one ZEO client you will have to find the matching logs in those as well If you use a proxy server like Enfold Proxy EP the Z2 log will be incomplete because it won t show cached HTTP requests If a person requests a web item cached by Enfold Proxy the HTTP request won t show up on Z2 log but this request will still show up

  • Restoring Backups
    significantly different from the default configuration files However these files include port numbers locations of ZODB Zope mount points specific to your deployment Files uploaded via Plone using the ExternalStorage product also called blobs Normally uploaded files are kept inside the ZODB but ExternalStorage puts uploaded files onto the file system instead This is recommended if you are dealing with large and or multimedia files This topic covers how to recovery the first item the ZODB The other assets can be backed up and restored like other files Restoring Backups Note If you are using mirroring already you may not need to use this procedure to do recovery of ZODB backups Mirroring will already have the complete Data fs file on a second drive just before the catastrophic failure occurred To recover from this you would merely need to copy the mirrored data onto a fresh machine configured to run Enfold Server When you installed Enfold Server you were given the option to schedule regular backups You can control scheduled tasks like backup using the Encontrol utility See Using Encontrol You can also change details like time and frequency of the scheduled tasks by going to the Scheduled Task applet in Windows Go to Start Settings Control Panel Scheduled Tasks The Recovery Steps On your new Enfold Server stop the Server Go to Encontrol and verify that all clients and the server have halted Locate the path where the incremental backups were made This will be specified in the Encontrol utility Verify that incremental backup files are located inside this directory The backup scripts automatically write the database to the backup directory in one of two formats an incremental and a full backup You can spot the difference by looking at the file extensions fs is for a full backup

  • Common Plone Tasks
    products may vary check the Plone org article Using Add on Products http plone org documentation tutorial third party products for a discussion about how to evaluate new third party products You may also wish to install components by using easy install See easy install and Enfold Server In brief here is the process for installing a Plone product in Enfold Server Download the Plone product Find the Products directory in the Enfold Server directory C Program Files Enfold Server Products There should already be about 20 directories for products already present which came with the default installation Many of these are part of Zope some are part of Enfold Server See Enfold specific products Drop the directory for your Plone product here the Service User only needs read access to these files to use them Restart all of your Zope clients in Encontrol Go to your Plone Control Panel Click Add On Products If everything goes well the new product you wish to install will appear here Using easy install to install products and libraries See easy install and Enfold Server Give Groups Access to the Same Web Folder Often you will need to give a user or group of users access to a particular directory inside the Plone site After you have mapped Active Directory groups to Plone roles you can delegate folder permissions to an Active Directory group with a predefined role Suppose you wanted to give a group of AD users the ability to create and modify HR policies For this example Monty Python is a domain user who is also a member of the Plone Administrators group in Active Directory This user has the ability to add edit groups in Active Directory Franz Kafka is a simple domain user Sign on as Monty Python Follow

  • Adding a Second Plone Site
    you are permitted to add modify delete objects of one or more Plone sites Typically after initial installation you can view application root by going to http localhost 8080 manage To find what the management port is for your Enfold Server Open Enfold Server Configuration Utility Start All Programs Enfold Server Enfold Server Configuration Utility Expand the settings for the Zope client you are using if more than one Click on Ports in Use Note the number corresponding to the Management Port default is 8080 and be sure it is enabled The other context for viewing the ZMI is specific to a single Plone site You can access it from Plone s control panel From this context you are able to change the settings only for one Plone site and not the others How do you know if the ZMI web page is application root or a ZMI specific to a Plone site These signs will indicate you are looking at application root when you type in the host port number i e http localhost 8080 you see the generic Zope page usually when you append the word manage to the URL i e http localhost 8080 manage you will see a two panel interface with Control Panel appearing at or near the top This will not appear in the context of an individual Plone site you will not see various objects named portal this only appears in the context of the Plone site s ZMI Requirement You must be in the application root of your ZMI and not within the context of another Plone site For this example application root will be at http localhost 8080 One common reason for accessing the Application root of your ZMI is to add a Plone site or even to delete one When

  • Proxying & Caching with EP

  • Authentication: Other Scenarios
    and workflow In an Intranet environment self registration may not appropriate when user data is being stored more systematically However there are occasions when self registration is necessary and appropriate For example maybe the Administrator wants users to be able to create accounts for commenting on articles Or perhaps a company needs to set up an event wiki using the new wiki capabilities present in Plone 3 x and individual users may wish to make changes For situations like this the user may be allowed to self register and receive rights to add content to a particular directory To do this an Administrator will need to go to the directory in question such as the hrpolicies directory located at http www mywebsite com hrpolicies click on the sharing tab and select the right role or check the box to inherit permissions from a higher directory LDAP for user authentication Instead of Active Directory and the Windows Security options you can also authenticate users against LDAP LDAP short for Lightweight Directory Access Protocol is a general protocol for communicating with directory services Active Directory supports LDAP but when we speak of LDAP separately that usually refers to a directory service perhaps an open source one that is able to provide directory information when queried Active Directory is simply Microsoft s implementation of LDAP in a Windows environment LDAP has been implemented not only on Windows but also Unix environments Plone has built in support for the LDAP protocol using LDAPUserFolder and Enfold includes two authentication profiles for using LDAP supported applications Keep in mind these things LDAP uses cookie based authentication and not NTLM authentication which is specific to Active Directory So using an LDAP authentication profile won t have automatic login for Windows domain users You must enter LDAP settings manually through the ZMI to make it work Because LDAP is a general standard and many applications implement this standard differently Enfold does not directly support using third party LDAP applications with ES Better information about LDAP can be found on Plone org s documentation and mailing lists Here are the basic steps for establishing a connection between an LDAP server and Plone Select authentication profile for LDAP See Authentication Profiles Press Update A Configuration hyperlink will now appear under the profile you chose Select it The Zope Management Interface ZMI will now open to a context where you can add configure an LDAP server From your Plone site you would need to go to Plone acl users ldap acl users manage main Complete the information to add an LDAP server and click Add Server Assuming that the LDAP server is correctly added you can view LDAP information in the ZMI and even create LDAP accounts of your own assuming that the service user has the right permissions It s also possible to map a Plone role like Editor Reviewer Contributor etc to a LDAP group The process is roughly the same as that for Active Directory Verify that the

  • Integrating User Data with AD/LDAP
    For example they could be displayed on a user profile page or on a department directory Filtering users in Active Directory By default when Plone fetches user or group objects from Active Directory or LDAP the query will return extra groups and users For example a query to list groups will probably pull out all security groups and computer names instead of actual users You will probably need to narrow this query Active Directory lets you add filters or subtrees to improve server performance One best practice involves creating an Organizational Unit OU called Plone and using this Organizational Unit as a filter for all your Active Directory queries If this Plone OU exists as a part of your Windows domain that allows Plone to look up users from a restricted subset of users rather than having to query the entire set of users When Active Directory contains a large numbers of users this can improve login time and also reduce load on the Active Directory server If your Plone OU exists outside your Windows domain i e if it contains both members of your Windows domain and nonmembers you can add users to this Organizational Unit without having to grant them full access to the Windows domain This can be useful when managing users who for one reason or another shouldn t have Windows domain accounts Configuring a AD filter within the Zope Management Interface ZMI is not hard the only tricky part is remembering that you need to put the Plone filter at the beginning of the string value Note the following applies to Active Directory but the altering of LDAP queries is relevant to LDAP users too To add a filter follow these steps Site Setup Authentication Profiles under your profile click on Configuration or Group Configuration
