Using a .ini file from the command line

Use the following syntax to run Link Updater from the command line using an .ini file to specify the paths:

INIFile is the full path name for the .ini file that contains the update information about the source computer and the target computer for the linked files.

Link Updater for Access

Link Updater for Microsoft Access updates external table links to other Microsoft Access databases and Excel spreadsheets, and updates hyperlinks found in Access table records. This utility performs automatic backups of the Access database file.

IMPORTANT: Microsoft Office is required for Link Updater for Access. Do not run Microsoft Office applications on the computer on which the Link Updater for Access is running. If you have Excel open when you run Link Updater for Access, Excel will be forcibly closed with no prompting to save your files.
IMPORTANT: You must create a link map file to use this utility. See Creating a link map .ini file.

Registry Updater

You can use the Registry Updater (RegTool.exe) to search and replace registry entries on client computers after a migration. The Registry Updater updates the registry based on an .ini file that contains the specified registry entries that are used to update the client computers.

For example, after a data migration you may need to update drive mappings in user local and roaming profiles. The Registry Updater replaces outdated links with links to the new server, so the computers can identify the new location of the data.

NOTE: Before you run the Registry Updater, you must create an .ini file for the drive mappings.


Creating the drive mapping .ini file

The .ini file is used to change the drive mappings in user local and roaming profiles from an old server mapping to a new server mapping.

A template .ini file is available to use to create your own .ini file. The template file is named drivemap.ini and is located in C:\Program Files\Quest\Secure Copy 7\Tools.

The [Values] section identifies the registry keys to search and replace. Drive mappings for a user are stored in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Network registry key. You can add the optional Recurse to include subkeys and associated values.

NOTE: If recursion is not set, the Registry Updater searches and replaces only values that are directly under the registry key.

The [ServerMap] section defines a mapping of old server to new server. You can map a server to a share on another server and you can map a share on a server to a new share on a server.

IMPORTANT: Only one mapping rule is applied and the rules are processed in order. This allows you to map old shares to new shares with different names.

You migrated data from server FS_NT to server FS_2K. Several shares were migrated and you renamed some of the shares because of conflicts on the target server or because of new naming conventions. You migrated shares named Software, Public, Accts, and Sales. During the migration, you renamed Accts to Accounts and Sales to UKSales. The .ini file to update those users that still have drive mappings to the old server and old shares might look as follows:
