Step 6. Specify Scheduling Options

This step allows you to specify whether the task should be started immediately or scheduled.

  • Save task configuration only—Select this option to save the task configuration. You can start the task any time later by right-clicking it in Migration Manager and selecting Start from the shortcut menu.
  • Save task configuration and run processing now—If this option is selected, the task will be started immediately after you finish the wizard. To view the task execution progress, select the task object in the project tree and switch to the Information tab in the right-hand pane.
  • Save task configuration and schedule processing—Select this option if you want to specify the time when the task should be started. You can schedule the task to be performed, for example, during the night. Click the Schedule button to specify the time.

Step 7. Complete the SMS Processing Wizard

In this step, the wizard displays all the settings you made in the previous steps. You can print these settings for later review by clicking the Print button and then selecting the printer. You can also save the settings in a text file by clicking the Save As button and specifying the filename.

Click Finish to complete the SMS Processing Wizard. The new SMS processing task will appear under the Tasks container in the Migration Project tree.

Running SMS Update

To start an SMS processing task from Migration Manager, select the task in the project tree, right-click the task and select the Start command from the shortcut menu.

To view the task execution progress, select the task object in the project tree and switch to the Information tab in the right-hand pane.

Stopping a Task

If for some reason you want to interrupt SMS processing, right-click the task and select the Stop command from the shortcut menu.

If you stop processing by selecting the Stop command, or the task execution is stopped due to an error, the task acts as follows:

  • If you stop the task during permissions update, further re-permissioning will be stopped. Objects already processed by that moment will have new (target) permissions. Objects not yet processed will keep old permissions. If you want to completely restore the SMS state, run the wizard with the Revert to the original object ownership and permissions option.
  • If you stop the task while reverting changes, further re-permissioning will be stopped. Objects already processed by that moment will have source permissions. Objects not yet processed will keep target permissions. If you want to restore the SMS state, run the wizard with the Reassign object ownership and permissions to target users option.
  • If you stop the task during cleanup of permissions, further processing will be stopped. Permissions of the objects already processed by that moment will be cleaned up. Objects not yet processed will be left intact.
Log File

The QsSmsProcessingWizard_<Timestamp>.log file is stored in the %TEMP% folder.

NOTE: SMS Processing Wizard does not store information about its own activities under the History node in the Migration Manager console management tree. All data is stored in the appropriate log file.

Reconfiguring a Task

To reconfigure the task, right-click the task object and select Properties. The SMS Processing Wizard will start and let you specify different options for the task. Refer to the steps above for more information on the available options.

Caution: If some members of the local groups BUILTIN\Administrators and SMSAdmins on the source were processed by the SMS Processing Wizard, you should process these groups on the source domain controller with Resource Updating Manager to make these accounts members of the corresponding groups.

SQL Server Processing

The SQL Processing Wizard allows you to update your Microsoft SQL servers to reflect the domain migration changes that were made using Migration Manager. The SQL update should be performed after Migration Manager has been used to migrate accounts to the new domain.

Caution: SQL processing wizard does not process an SQL server if one or more of its databases is in Offline, Read Only, or Single User mode. Such behavior is merely a precaution to prevent inconsistencies in permissions.

The SQL Processing Wizard retrieves the object migration information from the migration project and replaces the old accounts it locates on the processed SQL server (the source logins) with the corresponding new accounts (the target logins).

The wizard automatically detects the SQL Server version and performs the updates in accordance with the server’s structure.

Important: For information on supported SQL Server versions, refer to Processed Platforms – SQL Servers topic of the System Requirements and Access Rights document.

The wizard has the ability to merge logins. That is, if a target login name or security identifier (SID) is already used on the SQL server, or several source logins have the same target login, then the resulting target login will have its own privileges and the privileges of all the source logins as well.

The wizard cannot split database users; that is, a source database user can be migrated only to one target database user. Once a source database user has been migrated, the SQL Processing Wizard cannot then migrate that source database user to another target database user because the source database user is already absent—it has been migrated to the first target database user.

If you decide to roll back a migration, the SQL Processing Wizard can also be used to revert the changes to the SQL server.

NOTE: If accounts are merged during the update process, the wizard will not be able to separate them during the rollback. In this case, it is recommended that you restore the server from a backup if required.
