It is possible to copy the results of migration jobs from log files to other applications. This can be beneficial if you want to keep track of copy or incremental information outside of Metalogix Content Matrix, or want to manipulate the information for reporting or retention purposes. The log information is copied as text, to the clipboard, and can then be pasted within any other application that allows text pasting. For example, if a copy action was made, the logging can be copied into a Word file, or into an Excel spreadsheet, then saved.
NOTE: Only the end results of the total action will be copied.
To copy the logging for a job list:
1.Select a job from the Job List.
2.Right-click, and choose Copy selected job to clipboard (alternately Ctrl+C can be used).
3.Open the desired target program (for example: Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Notepad, etc), then paste the content into the application (Ctrl+V, or the paste command in the application itself).
NOTE: The logging for each action within the list must be copied separately.
To copy the logging for job items:
·Select the desired job list or job item(s) that the logging is to be copied from, and open the job list to access the Log Viewer.
·Select any job items that are to be copied. Single or multiple items can be selected in the Log Viewer. In order to copy the logging for the entire job, all job items in the Log Viewer must be selected.
·When all of the desired items are selected, right-click on one of them, and select Copy Log Items to Clipboard, and select to either copy them with, or without details. The Details are a set of extra columns that are added to the logging. These columns are typically: Details, SourceContent, and TargetContent. These columns do not always contain extra information. The default copy option (Ctrl+C) is to copy the logging without the Details.
You can generate a zip file of data associated with a single job item to help Quest Support facilitate troubleshooting.
The high-level data collected in the zip file includes:
·Application Settings files.
·Product information (product version, license, etc.).
·Information about the job item (what action settings were set, the job log, etc.).
IMPORTANT: Please review the contents of the zip file before sending it to Support. While this feature attempts to only collect non-sensitive data, no guarantees can be made - it is up to you to ensure that any files in the zip folder are stripped of any confidential data. Regardless, Quest assures that the contents of the zip file will only be used for troubleshooting the associated support ticket.
To create a support zip file::
1.In the Job List, select the job for which the zip file is to be generated.
2.Use one of the following options:
§In the main ribbon, click the Help tab, then Create Support Zip File.
§Right-click and choose Create Support Zip File.
3.Save the file to the desired location using the desired file name.
4.If you wish to review the zip file for sensitive information, click Yes to open the zip file. Once you are satisfied with the contents of the zip file, it can be sent to Quest Support to aid in troubleshooting.
Metalogix Content Matrix can generate PowerShell scripts to be used to migrate SharePoint content through the PowerShell command window. Anything that can be done through the Metalogix Content Matrix Console User Interface (UI) can also be done though PowerShell, adding PowerShell capability to content migration.
PowerShell console shortcuts are added to the same Start Menu folder location where shortcuts to Metalogix Content Matrix consoles are placed after installation.
NOTE: If this option is not used to open PowerShell, see Configuring PowerShell for Use with Metalogix Content Matrix, to set up and configure the Metalogix PowerShell plug-ins and snap-ins.
Metalogix Content Matrix can run PowerShell commands after some initial PowerShell configuration. The following steps need to be performed one time only.
To run PowerShell commands with Metalogix Content Matrix:
1.Change the working directory of PowerShell to the installation directory of that Metalogix Content Matrix edition.
2.Register the Metalogix.SharePoint.Commands DLL.
3.Register the Metalogix.System.Commands DLL.
4.Register the Metalogix.SharePoint.Migration.Commands DLL.
5.Register the Metalogix.Jobs.Reporting.Commands DLL.
6.Add the PowerShell snap-ins for the Metalogix Application Framework. This step must be done each time you open and use PowerShell with Metalogix Content Matrix.
