As far as your web application (in this case, DXA, though that's not necessarily relevant) is concerned it's just a different place to connect the CD API up to so, yes, I think it would just be a cd_storage change. In terms of relative performance this is harder to answer, as it depends on where your existing database and web applications are running. If ...

I had similar errors when until I got the Tridion.ContentManager.config update correct. function Set-SignalRServiceBusEndpoint { <# .SYNOPSIS Update Tridion.ContentManager.config SignalR Chris Mills 07768805566 .DESCRIPTION Notification broadcasting is not supported out of the box for the Content Manager SQL Azure database Although Azure ...

For CD side it is easier, all DB related info is located in cd_storage_conf and deployer-conf files. After update just restart microservices. For CM side it is a little trickier since DB related info is encrypted using Tridion Rsa key. CM DB info is located in %TRIDION_HOME%\config\Tridion.ContentManager.config Topology Manager DB info is located in %...

You install the databases the same way you would do with a "regular" SQL Server, only this time the server address is of the Azure SQL, for example: & '.\Install Content Manager database.ps1' -DatabaseServer someAddress.database.windows.net -DatabaseName ... As far as Tridion (CME) is concerned it will work the exact same way. The same goes for all the ...

There were some problems with the CIS backend used for Azure DXA and an unclear support status which is being addressed. At the point of writing the service is back online again, and we are monitoring it more closely so hopefully it stays available.

At this point (8.5) only the CM supports this indeed. For that same use case you're asking about I'm currently designing/building a solution with ECL instead. The file as stored by the CM is unusable outside of the context of the CM itself, and this was built in 8.5 merely as a way to alleviate DB storage requirements in CM, not as a way to bypass or ...

DXA supports multiple websites in a single web application, see the documentation on this topic: http://docs.sdl.com/LiveContent/content/en-US/SDL%20DXA-v5/GUID-7D334E4E-72F7-4AAA-B541-7A845E15C88C I don't know if there's anything that would be Azure-specific for this, but wouldn't think so. If you're using Web 8 & Topology Manager, there are no ...

Technically the Deployer is part of Content Delivery, not CM. In the CM there is a Transport Service which sends published files to the Deployer and this can be configured to use FTP or SFTP or other protocols. So if you put your Deployer closer to the web app (I.e. In the Content Delivery segment) so that the Deployer can write to the same file system or DB ...

OOTB you won't have this. You could write a storage extension to deal with this, but perhaps there's something simpler/cheaper. On premise I've seen tools like RSync and robocopy being used for similar needs. There seems to be quite a few google hits on "sftp synchronize files", maybe one of the tools there can help?

If the User you are impersonating only has implicit Group memberships (through external Group mappings), then impersonating the user by name only will indeed not work; you don’t tell the system which external groups the user is member of, after all. If you can obtain the external Group memberships (claims) yourself, you can use the ImpersonateWithClaims ...

Besides Stefan's answer which covers all the scenarios, if you need to replace just the CM database, you can do it using the SDL Console (MMC snapin) so you don't have to tamper with config files.

We use Azure hosted servers all the time, including installing, and there aren't any main differences compared to "regular" installations, especially if you're doing a one-box setup. The prerequisites are the same. But as Jonathan has already mentioned, just be sure to open all the necessary ports in Azure's Network Security Group settings if you wish to ...

Here is the Chris's Tridion.ContentManager.config update script for SDL Sites 9. What changed is the $signalrBackplaneHub.assembly. Also see documentation in https://docs.sdl.com/LiveContent/content/en-US/SDL%20Tridion%20Sites-v1/GUID-8B1C96F2-464E-442F-9727-3F4E7B21AF23 Also see another TREX QA The SQL Server edition of the target server is unsupported, ...
