I assume you’re migrating servers within same Active Directory domain.
6. It is recommended to do migration during off business hours when no one is accessing file shares.
Note: Windows system is not mandatory. You can still run migration tools from your file server itself. Also, these migration tools DO NOT migrate share permissions.
Thanks much for your prompt support in this case.
1) I not able to understand that this will not copy and migrate the share permission. ? what is that means ?
If i am correct all the folder after copied to VNXe will retain the same ownership structure as previous.. only the main share folder will have some issue . which i need to make it as same as source.
Pls correct and guide in this case.
I mean to say, after migration, all folders and files will have their permissions and properties similar to original. However, if you have any shares in the original file server, you will not see that share and its share permission.
To put it in other words, information in General tab and security tab is copied (along with data of course), but nothing from 'Sharing' tab.
