Drag and drop in the migration client

With drag & drop, the scanned NTFS permissions are visually displayed in a directory tree and can primarily be changed with the mouse.

This feature is characterized by the fact that user and group names no longer need to be written. You can search for objects in the AD, park them in a clipboard and drag them from there or from a directory of the initial state to a destination directory and drop them there, hence "drag and drop".

1. Create directories for the target state.

There are two ways to create the directories for the target state:

1.1. Tables mode

The simplest way to create the directories in table mode. You can import the scanned directories as well as data from a spreadsheet (xlsx format). Additional directories that are not available in the initial state can also be created.

1.2. Drag and drop mode

This mode can be used for the project types "Scan resources" and "Import table". For projects for Novell migration, the drag-and-drop mode can not be used.

Rights suffix

For the authorization groups, a file attachment indicates which rights this group has to the directory. This group suffix can be changed here.

In the "Visible" column, you can specify which rights are displayed and thus for which rights authorization groups are to be created.

Roles and accounts

To use the Web Client, the predefined roles must be assigned Authorized (Role Designer) and User (Account Management).

1. Roll Designer

In the first step, 8 roles are predefined by name:

Predefined roles
Enterprise Administrator Has all rights.
Data Owner Gets rights for his area.
Deputy Data Owner Deputy Data Owner.
requester Normal user or area manager to control permissions.
Revision Auditing, eg for auditors or tax auditors
Administrator 1 Helpdesk
Administrator 2 zbV
Administrator 3 zbV

The configuration is divided into the configuration of the authorization groups, authorization of the Web client users and configuration of the services.

In addition to the group configuration for the migration client, as we have from migRaven 5 know, two sections have been added.
The "Roles / Accounts" section defines rights for the users of the web client.
In the "Remote Services" section you can find out about the configuration of the services (AD Scan Services, Resource Scan Services, ...), create additional services and delete unnecessary ones.


No. designation Description
1 Groups Configuration of the authorization groups
Type Group type and storage OU are set.
Name The structure of the name of the authorization groups is defined.
List-law For which levels should list groups be created and authorized.
Rights You can specify what rights should be displayed and what the suffixes should look like for the permission groups. Maximum 4 digits are possible.
Novell This is where the access data for the Novell server is stored if you want to perform a Novell migration.
2 Roles / Accounts The area administrators are set to rights and users.
Roll Designer The rights are assigned for the 7 available Data Owner roles.
account management The created roles can be assigned to accounts (users).
3 Remote services Configuration of the services.
Central Services For Core and Database Service the parameters are displayed. A change is not possible.
Active Directory Scan Services The existing AD Scan Services are displayed. Others can be created or removed (on other servers).
Resource Scan Services Before the first project, a Resource Scan Service must be set up here.
The existing Resource Scan Services are displayed. Others can be created or removed (on other servers).

Start and AD-Scan

1. Start.

The migration client must be called with administrator rights.
And all services must be started, except for the Resource Scan Service. This is first created in the migration client.

2. AD-Scan

After the start the domains have to be scanned first. migRaven shows us the found domains, we have to mark those to be scanned.

With the button "Add .." (1) the window "Add Active Directory Statistics" opens.
The top elongated field ends with an arrow down (v). By clicking this field (2) a calculator list appears.
It displays the computers on which the AD Scan Service service has been installed. Initially only the current computer name.

We select this and confirm the "Discover" button (3).

A list of found domains is displayed. Select the domains (4) whose users and groups should have permissions on the shares you want to migrate. Objects of unscanned domains migRaven later than orphaned SID represent.
With "Save" (5) the list is closed. Scan scans (6) the selected domains.

1. preparation

1. System requirements of migRaven check.

The system requirements for the use of migRaven can be found in the following document:


2. Installing .net Framework 4.6 (or higher)

The current version of migRaven requires the .NET Framework 4.6 to be found at


3. Installation of Java

The current version of migRaven Allows you to migrate Windows shares, import permissions from a table, and migrate Novell servers. It needs the most recent migRaven Database version and thus the latest version of the Java Runtime (JRE) in the 64bit variant.

You can download the latest Windows 64bit Offline Installer from this URL:


You can check your currently installed Java version with the following CMD command: java version

Java must necessarily before migRaven be installed.

Since the Java version contains the Java version number in the Java path migRaven after a Java update the new version is not. Therefore, after a Java update for the database in the registry, the path to Java must be adapted.

For a straightforward entry, the support migRaven-Support via remote session during installation and accompanies you through all relevant functions. After only 30 - 60 minutes is the migRavenTest version and can be used for a full 21 day for the visualization, analysis and analysis of your directory and rights structure. Please check in advance only the system requirements - further preparations are not necessary.

4. Notes on installing migRaven and its components

In the first version of migRaven.one all components should be installed on the same machine.
For the following versions we plan to install components on different computers.
From about 50.000 AD accounts a separation of the program from the database can be advantageous.
We recommend, migRaven to install on a client to avoid creating additional load from the database during the scan on the file server.

2. components

migRaven.one consists of three programs and five services. The installer installs the components. The migration client, like its predecessor, is used to migrate NTFS permissions. With the new Web Client, you can evaluate the scanned directory and authorization data.
Background services include the database, two controlling services, and one each for scanning Active Directories and scanning file servers (resources).

The components of migRaven.one and their interaction.
In addition comes the migRavenInstaller with whom the migRavenComponents are installed.
