Storage Migration tab

The Storage Migration tab allow you to migrate attachments files from the storage location to another storage location.

Name: The migration task name.
Source storage location: The storage location to copy. After a storage location is selected, the file count and file size will be shown below.
Target storage location: The destination storage location.
Delete source files after migrated: Delete the attachment files in the source storage location after the migration task is committed.
Auto commit if there is no error in the migration process: The migration task will be auto committed if there is no error, such as cannot read source file, cannot write to target storage location, cannot update database, etc.
Batch size: The number of attachment files to migrate in a single batch. The default value is 1000.
Batch Delay: The time in milliseconds to wait before start next batch.
Maximum number of retries: The number of times to retry if the migration tool cannot migrate a single attachment file. For example, if it cannot read source file, the migration tool tries to migrate the attachment file. This setting defines how many retries.
Number of processes: As Archive Manager uses the remote host to process to read/write attachment files, this setting declares that how many remote host processes are created.
After clicking Save, three new buttons are displayed:
Start: Click this button to start the migration task.
Edit: Click this button to edit the migration task.
Delete: Click this button to delete the migration task.

The migration status is displayed in the top right-hand corner of the Storage Migration page.

New: The status when a user creates and saves a migration task.
In Progress: The status after clicking the Start button to start the migration task.
Executed: The status after all the attachment files are moved to the target storage location. When the status is Executed, the following buttons are displayed on the bottom right-hand side of the screen:
Retry: If there are attachment files that have failed to migration due to an error (cannot read, cannot write, etc.), the user can click Retry to attempt the migration again.
After the Retry button is clicked, the status becomes In Progress again.
Cancel: Deletes all of the attachments that have been copied to the target storage location and updates the data table "AttachmentFile." Attachments files from the existing source will be used.
The user can click Cancel at any time. After the Cancel button is clicked, the status becomes In Progress. After all the attachment files are canceled, the task status becomes Canceled.
Commit: Ignore the failed attachment files and commit the task.
