The Module Editor permits module specific configuration to be set down to a location level. Locations are specified by a drop box at the top of a tabbed interface. All modules enabled have configuration options exposed in each of the tabs. Configuration settings assigned here can be overridden using the Custom Settings option in the Module Settings sub-menu.
To ensure maximum efficiency of the Repair module, it is recommended that it be installed on the same machine as the Extraction module and the BITS upload location. When the Repair module is on a location local to the BITS upload location, there is special configuration required to enable the repair request to use the local path rather than a UNC path. Enabling this configuration has shown to produce a substantial performance gain for the repair module.
The extraction module is a powerful module that performs several tasks during the extraction process. This functionality requires many additional configuration options that are specific to it. The following table provides a description of these options:
The Extraction module is also able to filter data from PST files when that content is not desired or known to be unsupported in a target system. Filtering items will remove items based on how they match the specified criteria and these items will not be migrated to the target system. Filters will be applied to the scope of the area they are placed. For example, filters placed in the “Appointment Filter” filed will only apply to message classes associated with Appointments.
Filters are case sensitive when applied. Its syntax can be built using the properties above and standard C# string methods. These methods are appended to a property and applied against the value of that property. If you wanted to find a property containing the value of “xyz” you would append .Contains(“xyz”) to the name of the property.
This tab contains configuration settings for the duplication function. By default, Dedup examines, and dedupes, mails items within a PST and mail items between multiple PSTs. The settings unique to this tab are described as follows:
This tab contains configuration settings for the ingestion into Microsoft targets such as Office 365 and Exchange servers. Migration Manager for PSTs uses the Advanced Ingestion Protocol (AIP) as a primary ingestion method into Microsoft targets. The settings in this tab control the behavior of this module and permit the ability to tune these settings to get the best performance possible. The settings unique to this tab are described as follows:
This tab contains configuration settings for the ingestion into Enterprise Vault targets. Migration Manager for PSTs uses the Enterprise Vault API as an ingestion method into Enterprise Vault targets. The settings in this tab control the behaviour of this module and permit the ability to tune these settings for the desired results. The settings Unique to this tab are described as follows:
This tab contains configuration settings for the identification and restoration of Enterprise Vault shortcuts identified within PST files. The settings in this tab control the behavior of this module and permit the ability to tune these settings for the desired result. There is only one unique value in this tab. The Item Ingest Parallelism is used to determine the number of items requested for rehydration per pass per thread of a running module.
This tab contains configuration settings for the Leftover module. The Leftover module copies non-ingested data to a file share or OneDrive. The settings in this tab control the behaviour of this module and permit the ability to tune these settings for the desired result.
Scheduled tasks sub-menu permits review and management of regular activities required in a migration. The interface shows all tasks available to the system and the time they are last run. You can execute the tasks now or you can change the configuration of a given task to run at specified times. Tasks can also be scheduled to execute on a regular interval and run continually.
The Scheduled Reports sub-menu permits management of schedule report configurations. Scheduled reports are run periodically and are made available through the web portal to users who subscribe to the report. The reports are created by running defined SQL scripts and are saved as CSV files. Subscribed reports are emailed to the subscriber as ZIP files.
The options on the home ribbon for the Scheduled Reports sub-menu are as follows:
The Computers sub-menu provides a grid of data showing all machines seen in the environment. The data returned also includes all computers where content was discovered. Computers can be assigned to specific locations, be designated as “Central Servers” so the Central Upload Agent uploads the content on it and can be flagged to have the content of the files identified on that machine scanned for sender and recipient information. Should it be appropriate, comments can be added, displayed, or managed for computers identified within the environment.
The options on the home ribbon for the Computers sub-menu are as follows:
