WMS Archive Data Writer Properties
If you want to automatically begin archiving when the
publishing point starts, select the Start archiving when
publishing point starts check box.
Type a location and a name for the archive file, and then click
OK. For more information about the wildcard characters that
can be used in an archive file name, see Archive wildcard characters
In the details pane, click Enable.
To change the archive file path after archiving
has started, you must stop archiving, change the path, and then
restart archiving. You can manually start and stop archiving on the
Source tab of the publishing point.
The WMS Archive Data Writer plug-in cannot be
enabled or disabled while the publishing point is streaming
content. If you want to archive your broadcast, you must enable the
archiving plug-in before you start your publishing point.
If you archive your streamed content by using
the default name and the default directory, the content may be
vulnerable to unauthorized access. To protect your archived
content, save it to a location that is outside the Wmroot directory
structure or implement additional network security measures.
