    I am in the planning stages of my Sitefinity deployment.

    In regards to the SharePoint connector, I am trying to determine, in a multi-server, load balanced configuration, which server will be actually making queries against SharePoint?

    If I have three web servers, can I specifically tell it to only run the queries from one server?

    The reason I am asking is determining which servers need to go in the DMZ vs internal. I was considering having two production load balanced servers in the DMZ and a single internal server which would be accessed only by internal content editors. If I was able to set up Sitefinity so the SharePoint connector was querying only from the internal server, that would save me from having to poke another hole from the DMZ servers to the internal network, which would save me a lot of headache from our security staff.

    Thoughts? Thanks!

    Hello Jeff,

    Unfortunately, this is not possible because there is not internal logic checking which is the machine that is accepting the request.

    Please excuse us for the inconvenience.
