Set up scans of shares (create projects) (rich client)

Once everything is configured and set up, you can start creating projects.

Note: Projects are the basis for the different usage scenarios of migRaven.24 / 7. This documentation is about the functions of migRaven.24 / 7, which is why a "Group Policy Project" is used as a suitable operation.

(The migRaven Fat-Client also includes the functions of to migrate directory structures and permissions in bulk. This is not part of this documentation!)

Creating a project triggers a scan over an existing directory structure. The following information is read in:

  1. Directory structure (no files are recorded by name in the database.) Only the meta data is collected and added at the directory level.)
  2. Permissions: ACL of directories
  3. Meta: age of the files
  4. Meta: file types
  5. Meta: file owner

For all meta-information both the number and the occupied memory are stored together. No information about files is stored directly!

The later analyzes are always based on the scanned data. The database entries can be updated with a re-scan at any time and brought up to date.

A large number of projects can be created.

Notice: the projects should not overlap the physical structures. If a directory has already been scanned, there should be no further scan for this structure, for example, in which the directories are scanned a second time!

Create new project (scan)

Select "Group Policy Project" for a new one migRaven.24 / 7 project. The other project types are intended for other tasks.

Enter a name for your project
Enter the entry point of the scan as UNC path

By clicking on Show server / path you can check if the entered path was found correctly.

Go on over to summary and start.

As soon as all input is available, you can start the scan.

Most inputs are mainly relevant to a migration project, so they can be neglected in this case.
click on Start reading to start the scan.
(If the button is gray and not clickable, check if an OU is entered under Optional: Type.
It can also be a place for example. Be entered "test.local / test")

The scan will start with the specified user account of the Resource Scan Service carried out. Watch the counter and "folder count", this should increase continuously. If it terminates or persists on -1, the rights of the user account deposited in the configuration may not be sufficient enough. Please check the registered user account in Windows Services.

Once the scan has been run and stored in the database, the scan status will be turned on Save finished posed. Once this is the case, the project can be viewed by the administrator in the web interface.

Check the scanned data in the web client

Congratulations. You have the installation and configuration of migRaven.24 / 7 completed successfully.
Now you can evaluate your project in the web client.
