need to scan the files in celerra shares prior to migration

Hello All,

We 're in the process of migrating from one  celerra(NS 704G) ( using EMC replicator , i suppose) to another(NS40G)located at different locaion.I have been asked to locate the .exe ,.bat , .mdb and . pst files. I could manage to find the .exe and .bat files , but,  finding the .mdb and .pst files is really tough. I don't see any CLI command i can run on control station to get those( find / -name '*.exe' -ls -helped me to get the .exe and .bat only).

I 'd very much appreciate if any one can help me find out these two file extensions. I have been looking around in all the forums with no avail. Some body told me a tool called TReesize can help me get those files ; i 've never used it so kind of confused how it works.

Any pointers will be appreciated.

I need to list out

1)     NAS device where the file resides
2)     File name of the .mdb and .pst file
3)     File size of the .mdb and .pst file
4)     For .mdb, I need the last date it was accessed

----------------------------------------------------

I know this is for developers , and i believe they can help me better in this situation...

Let me know if any detail is required!

Thanks for reading..

Shane

Hi Shane,

I think you are likely to get better answers on the support forum https://community.emc.com/community/support/celerra?view=discussions&start=0 - the developer forum isnt very active.

You should be able to get that from any NFS or CIFS client - please dont use the control station - it isnt meant for data management, doesnt have a fast connection to the data movers and is required for the proper function of the whole system.

From a NFS client just mount the file system in question (root exported) and do a find . -name "*.mdb" -print

Or from a Windows client map that file system to a drive letter and either use find from a Windows GUI utils package or any of the Windows graphical tools like WinDirStat or TreeSize or ....

Or use PowerShell http://blog.stevex.net/powershell-cheatsheet/

Or http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/findutils.htm

Shane,

I have a tool that will do exactly what you are asking for - and much more as well.  I am a former EMC employee and I am now working as a private consultant  It might be more efficient if you contacted me directly by email at dgilbert.france@gmail.com.  I could give you a full description of what my tools can do and also give you a WebEx demonstation.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

David Gilbert

Re: need to scan the files in celerra shares prior to migration

Hello Rainer-thanks a lot for your help!!

I finally managed to do it to some extent.The WinDirStat tool gives me the number of files in .pst and .mdb .But i don't have the option to look for

File name of the .mdb and .pst file. For .mdb, I need the last date it was accessed..

Is it possible to get this from WinDirStat tool? or i need to have treesize(preferred over Windirstat)  for it . I 'll do the discovery on tree size t'morrow if this doesn't work.

Any help will be very much appreciated.We 're only CIFS client so i am basically looking for windows utility tools.

Also, I 'd like to add this was taken from one of the shares and we 've a lot of shares similar to this. Is there a way i can reduce my effort a little instead of going after every share.

Here's the screen shot attached-

thanks for your help again!

sorry , i 've to carry this here-https://community.emc.com/community/support/celerra?view=discussions&start=0 - I don't have access to the support forum .

Says, "unauthorized" ."you 're not allowed to view what you requested" .  Nor sure why
