Migration Manager for AD 8.15 - Resource Processing Guide

Introduction to Resource Update Distributed Updates in Resource Updating Manager Common Resource Update Workflows Active Directory Processing Exchange Server Processing SMS Processing SQL Server Processing Cluster Server Migration Command-Line Resource Update SharePoint Processing

Step 1. New SMS Processing Task

In this step, you can give the task a new name and add a descriptive comment.

Step 2. Select Configuration Mode

In this step, select whether you want to delegate this task to a trusted person or configure and schedule the task.

If you want to proceed with configuring the task, specify task name and description.

To delegate the task, select the Delegate this task check box.

Depending on the mode you selected, the remaining steps offered by the wizard are different.

Step 3. Specify Re-Permissioning Options

This step is displayed regardless of the configuration mode you selected in the previous step.

This step lets you specify the options for SMS object processing.

  • Reassign object ownership and permissions to target users—Select this option to re-assign permissions and ownership set to the SMS objects to the new (target) user accounts. Select the Leave source accounts’ permissions check box to allow access for both the source and target user accounts (recommended). This will make the update smoother by granting both accounts the same privileges for the coexistence period.

    NOTE: If the User A and User B have been merged to User C during the account migration session, the target user will get the permissions of both user A and user B.

    If the target account already possesses SMS permissions, these permissions will be replaced by the source account’s permissions.

  • Clean up object ownership and permissions of migrated users—Select this option if you want to remove permissions granted for source accounts from the objects’ Access Control Lists (ACLs), thus, disabling the rights for the legacy accounts. Normally, this should be done as soon as the coexistence period is over.
  • Revert to the original object ownership and permissions—Select this option to you undo re-permissioning, removing target users from the objects’ Access Control Lists (ACL) and returning all rights to the source accounts.

    NOTE: If two source users were merged to one target user during migration, and if only one of the source users had permissions on some objects, then, after SMS update and reverting permissions back, both users would have permissions on these objects (that is, users would have common permissions).

  • Process as specified in the exported INI settings file—Select this option if you want to retrieve the processing options from the INI file. The INI settings file can be created in Migration Manager (Tools | Export to | INI File). See the Delegating Resource Update topic for more details. Note that if no INI file exists, the option is disabled.

    NOTE: This option is enabled only when the wizard is run in stand-alone mode.

Step 4. Delegate Resource Processing Task

This step appears only the Delegate resource processing task mode was selected in Step 2. If you have selected the Configure resource processing task option, proceed to step 5.

This step lets you specify one or more trusted accounts and delegate the rights to perform this task to these accounts.

To delegate the rights to the trusted accounts, complete the following steps:

  1. Click the Delegate button.
  2. Specify account and the role you want to delegate. Click OK.

Click Next to proceed to the Complete the SMS Processing Wizard step.
