NTFS permissions in csv and xlsx files (Migration Client)

NTFS permissions can be output as a csv file and read in via an xlsx file

1. Summary.

In table mode, you can output the authorization table as a CSV file before saving. This makes it possible to edit the permissions in Excel. You can add and remove directories and permissions. Finally, save the table as an xlsx file. This is used in a "Table Import" project as the basis for building an authorization structure in a new share.

Different destination directory in the migration client

It is possible to redirect individual directories (including the subdirectories) when migrating a Windows share.

To do this, under Design & Work in table mode, you will find an additional column "Different target directory" next to the (initial) path.
Here you can specify a different directory than the home directory.

In general, the home directory will be replaced by the new directory. The permissions are applied.
Subdirectories under it are taken over, up to the level in which a different target directory may be specified.

recommended mapping of the old NTFS rights to the new target permissions in the table mode

The first task in the work and design process via the table mode is the re-mapping of the previous "old and grown" authorizations to the new authorizations by default. This makes sense in order to convert the many different "individual" rights into a standard.

All individual rights are broken down by type and propagation and must now be assigned to the standard rights. Not only the rights themselves play a role, but also the type of rights (like refuse) and the propagation (the application to this folder, subfolders and files). These rights can be converted into standard rights in the mapping table.

1. The standard rights at migRaven

Right Type Propagation (Apply to)

Read and Execute   Allow this folder, subfolders, files
Write              Allow this folder, subfolders, files
Modify             Allow this folder, subfolders, files
Modify Plus *       Allow this folder, subfolders, files (more about ModifyPlus)

Full Control       Allow this folder, subfolders, files

Table mode in the migration client

You populate the table with your credentials, whether from a scanned share, Novell permissions, or a self-created Excel spreadsheet. You can edit and change the permissions according to your needs and ideas. You can remove and add directories. You can authorize users and groups with the five default rights to these directories. You can initiate inheritance breaks and redirect directories in the redesign project.

1. Rights mapping.

In a redesign project, the first step in table mode is the Rights mapping, The existing rights must be changed to the five standard rights.

Only then do you get into the table mode for the authorization assignment.
