Issue/Introduction

 

We're trying to configure a Traditional Web Agent to protect
SharePoint, I find the following log:

   AzReject [...] "xc001w2s PROPFIND /test_HPR/DR1_test2.ppt"

We think it deals with WebDAV. How can we enable WebDAV verbs in the
Web Agent ?

 

Resolution

 

This is not officially supported. Here is a workaround:

You need to create a custom agent type from the default existing one
adding:

  GET POST PUT HEAD DELETE CONNECT OPTIONS TRACE PATCH PROPFIND
  PROPPATCH MKCOL COPY MOVE LOCK UNLOCK

values to Web Agent type; 

NOTE:

- Need to create new agents - to allow webdav;
- Cannot add the new agent in an already existing agent group (because
  even the Agent Group has an option to select webagent or webagent
  with webdav; the agent lookup only looks for agent with type
  webagent.);
- Create a new agent group with webdav support - this now looks for
  agent with only webdav type and not webagent type;
- Cannot add the new agent group with webdav to any of the existing
  domain, you need to create a new domain;
