Migration Manager for PSTs Enterprise Edition 7.2 - Administrator Guide

Locations

The Locations sub-menu offers the ability to manage complicated migration environments. They permit work to be assigned into geographically appropriate groupings.

The options on the home ribbon for the Locations sub-menu are as follows:

Refresh

Refreshes the data

Add

Adds a new location

Edit

Edits existing location

Transparent Central Upload

Configures transparent central upload

Options available during Location creation or modification are as follows:

Name

Desired name of location

Description

Brief description of the location

BITS Upload URL

URL path, including port number, used by Agents to centralize PST files over BITS.

Upload Location

UNC path used by modules to access content from the share associated with the BITS upload URL

Re-Ingest Location

Path or Azure storage connection string specified for the Re-Ingest process to obtain content for consecutive modules

Unpark Location

Path where ownerless PST files are located when parked

Concurrent Uploads

The number of simultaneous uploads that can be performed by all Migration Agents

Maximum Upload Size

The total size of concurrent uploads that can be performed by all Migration Agents

Each location can be configured to specify a peak and limited rate for Concurrent Uploads based on disk availability. These values are designed to reduce the risk of consuming all available space on the upload location.

Locations enable an organization to centralize and process PST files in data centers close to the users, their data, and their target system.

Transparent Central Upload is a feature to enable better integration for the Central Upload Agent (CUA) with transparent migrations. Unlike an Agent running locally, the CUA has no ability to detach and snapshot files presently accessed by a user.

Enabling Transparent Central Upload ensures that all active Agents on the user’s workstations have validated the existence of the required registry keys or has set them prior to permitting the CUA to upload data on a remote resource. Transparent Central Upload also has the capability to schedule the period of time where it will attempt to centralize targeted files. This enables an administrator to schedule centralization of these files during a time when they will be less likely to be accessed.

Modules

Provides a list of all registered modules in the environment and the last time they checked into the server. Data is returned in a grid format with selectable and filterable results. Where appropriate, location specific configurations can be used to accommodate the needs of that location.

The options on the home ribbon for the Modules sub-menu are as follows:

Refresh

Refreshes data in the displayed grid

Set Location

Permits assignment of a module to a location

Add Server

Permits the ability to add and configure the type of Central Upload Agent identified

Delete Server

Permits the ability to remove the configuration of Central Upload Agents identified

Log Level

Workflow

The Workflow sub-menu permits the enablement and order that the Migration Manager for PSTs modules will be processed. The configurations can be made per location, selectable by the drop down at the top of the grid. This area permits you to enable or disable modules, permit certain modules to be skipped if a file fails successful processing by that module, how long to wait prior a file being eligible for processing by that module, or if processing should begin after all the files have been successfully queued for that task.

The options on the home ribbon for the Workflow sub-menu are as follows:

Refresh

Refreshes data in the displayed grid

Profiles

The Profiles sub-menu offers the ability to add and configure assignable user profiles. They are used to permit an alternate configuration for users associated with them and enable the assignment of unique File Scanner, Agent, Language, and Location configurations. Not all migrations require additional profiles but they are provided to enable support of complex environments where a migration project is taking place.
