File Storage Consolidation

Before you migrate computers to a new environment, you should assess their file storage. Using reports generated by Enterprise Reporter, you can ensure that only the required data is moved.

You have received a request to get ready for storage migration and consolidation by identifying (and excluding from migration) files that are duplicate, unused, orphaned or that violate storage usage policy.

You will need to take the following steps:

Configure a Cluster to Perform the Data Discovery

You must configure at least one cluster. A cluster is a logical collection of one or more computers (nodes) on which discoveries are executed. A discovery must be assigned to a cluster. A cluster can access an optional shared data location for discovery data. This reduces network traffic, and the processing load on the server.

Clusters are created in the Configuration Manager. To ensure you have the necessary access to the consoles and reports, make sure you are still logged in to your computer with the same user account that you used to install Enterprise Reporter.

If you do not have the Configuration Manager open, perform the following steps:

1
Click the Start menu and select All Programs | Quest | Enterprise Reporter | Configuration Manager.
Click Browse, and locate the computer where the server is installed.
4
Click Connect.

The Create Cluster wizard walks you through the process of setting up a cluster. If you want to create a new Cluster, see To create your first cluster and node .

Create Discoveries to Define the Data Collection

Once you have configured a cluster, you can begin setting up discoveries. Discoveries define the targets from which you will be collecting data. Enterprise Reporter uses a "collect all" model. After you run a discovery, you can run reports that include the data you have collected.

In this scenario, you need to collect information about the files and folders stored on particular servers and then analyze it. Since there is information you will need at the server level, the folder level, and the file level, and then you will analyze it, you need to create multiple discoveries targeting the same computers to collect each type of information.

To name the discovery, enter File Storage Analysis - [Server Name] so you can identify the discovery easily once you have a list of discoveries.
4
On the Scopes page, click Add to choose the computer to analyze.
5
Browse to the computer for which you want to collect data, click Include, and click OK to close the Browse dialog box.
7
Click Next.
2
To name the discovery, enter Computer - [Server Name] so you can identify the discovery easily once you have a list of discoveries.
4
On the Scopes page, click Add to choose your computer.

Click Next.
2
On the name page, enter NTFS - [Server Name] so you can identify the discovery easily once you have a list of discoveries.

Click Next.

Run the Discoveries to Collect the Data

You can schedule discoveries or run them on demand. In this case, we want to collect this data right away. Each discovery is broken down into tasks, which are assigned to the node for processing. If you have more than one node, Enterprise Reporter uses load balancing to ensure the most efficient processing. You can track the progress of your discovery.

1
On the Manage Discoveries page, select the discovery File Storage Analysis - [Server Name].
2
Click Run.

To view the progress of a discovery, click the Processing link in the Next Run column.
