Before Submitting a Distributed Migration Job

·Make sure all dependencies exist on the agent machines. For example, if the mappings were changed, then the Agents must be updated with the new configuration files before performing a migration. For instructions about updating the configuration files, see Managing Agents

·If the Distributed Migration model is installed across multiple domains, it is recommended that the connection to the SharePoint site is made with the SharePoint site credentials instead of using the current Users windows credentials. The Agent will use the same credentials and will then be able to access the SharePoint site. Make sure you save the password when you establish the SharePoint connection with the user credentials.

·If the SharePoint site requires another user's credentials, the connection to the SharePoint site will require those credentials in the Metalogix Content Matrix Console connection dialog on the Controller (Host) machine. The Agent will use the same credentials and will then be able to access the SharePoint site.

REMINDER:  A connection to SharePoint Online must use an account that is not part of a SharePoint Online Multi-Factor Authentication Policy and that does not use "modern" authentication.  (See also Distributed Migration Job Limitations.)

Procedure for Submitting a Distributed Migration Job

To submit a Distributed Migration job:

1.Open Metalogix Content Matrix Console on the Controller (Host), and verify that you are connected to the Agent Database.

2.Configure and save your migration job on the Controller.

3.From the Job list in the main application window, highlight the row to select the job.

4.From the Job List toolbar, click Run Jobs Remotely to submit the job for Distributed Migration. Alternatively, right-click the selected row to display the pop-up action menu. Select the Run selected job remotely option.

Note: You can select multiple rows to submit more than one job at a time.

Distributed Migration Run Jobs Remotely

IMPORTANT:  If Distributed Migration was configured prior to version 8.8, the first time you submit a job remotely, you will be prompted to agree to the terms of a third-party license agreement before being able to continue.  (If Distributed Migration was configured in version 8.8 or later, the third-party license agreement is accepted as part of Distributed Migration Configuration.)

The Manage Queue dialog opens. You can now monitor your jobs from this dialog.

5.To view logs that are Running or Done, from the Job List toolbar, choose File > Refresh.

Managing the Distributed Migration Job Queue

If Metalogix Content Matrix has been configured for Distributed Migration, the Console that is set up as the Controller (Host), provides a single point of management control over the job queue.

To open the Manage Queue dialog:

From the Metalogix Content Matrix Console ribbon Connection tab, select Manage Queue.

CONTEN~1_img153Distributed Migration Manage Queue

NOTE:  If the Manage Queue button appears disabled, your Metalogix Content Matrix Console edition is not connected to use a configured Agent Database. To configure an agent database, see Creating/Connecting to an Agent Database for Distributed Migration.

The Manage Queue dialog displays a list of migration Jobs, called the Distributed Migration Job list. The information presented in the various columns are as follows:

Column

Description

Job ID

The unique identifier of the job.

Job Name

The name of the job.

Created

The date and time the job was saved (and not when the job was queued).

Source URL

The source of the migration content.

Target URL

The target of the migration content.

Agent Name

The name of the Agent where the job is running. The value is blank when the job is queued.

Status

Recent state of the job. The status values could be one of the following values:

·Queued - the migration job is ready to start.

·Running - a migration is in progress.

·Failed - the job has encountered a fault condition.

·Done - the migration has completed.

You can select a job from the list by clicking anywhere on the row. A row selector icon and the highlighted row indicates the selected row.

Deleting a Distributed Migration Job

1.From the Manage Queue dialog, select the job that you want to delete from the Distributed Migration Job list. The row selector icon and the highlighted row indicates the selected row.

NOTE: Only jobs with a status of Queued or Done can be deleted. Deleting a job from the queue will not remove or delete any of the logging information that has already been sent to the main Job list for the Agent Database.

2.Click Delete Job.

(If the button is disabled, check that the selected job has a status that is either Queued or Done.)

A dialog will display asking you to confirm the deletion.
