Instructions: migrating from Novell to Microsoft

1. Read trustee information from the Novell server 

1.1. Source: Novell Netware

1.1.1. Output Permissions with the Trustee.nlm command

Novell Netware does not have any trustee-database.xml. The trustees however can be read with the console command trustee.nlm.
An example for the syntax is:

TRUSTEE /ET /D SAVE VOL1: sys:\trustee-vol1.csv

/ET for permissions, without ownership
/D for directories, without files
VOL1: permissions and directories from this volume
sys:\trustee-vol1.csv is the output file

If the output file contains unwanted information other than the trustees, you can generate a file reduced to TRUSTEEs with:
FIND “TRUSTEE” trustee.csv > only_trustee.csv

Project typ “Novell Migration”

Case Instructions Novell Migration

You can find our complete Novell migration instructions here: Instructions – from Novell to Microsoft

View – visual interface

The view is the visual representation of the authorization structure, once the read (initial state) and after the “Design & Work” the planned authorization structure (new state).

1. Initial state – the read authorization structure

The “View initial state” is the only component of the project type “Migration per Scan”. It shows the authorization structure of a read Windows-Share.

After reading the output directory, migRaven lands in the View – initial state.
You can move on the left side by the directory structure. On the right hand side you see the authorized groups and accounts and their rights for a directory selected on the left hand side. Below that you can display the members of the groups, the accounts, you may change or all members entitled to this directory.

Table mode

1. Mapping Permissions

The first step in the table mode is the mapping of permissions.

Only then can you fill your table to set permissions.

2. Filling Table

The data is inserted here depending on the type of project. In case of “Scan Your resources“, the data is taken over from the initial state with the help of the button “Start filling”. The excel tables can be read in the “Import or create a table” and “Novell-migration“.

Further in all the types of projects it is possible to manually insert rows and change values. Here you must pay attention to the syntax of the field content and the column headers.
