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

Design & Work in the Migration Client

Now with two procedures for assigning permissions

From version 3.1. Has migRaven an additional authorization mode. Known is the "table mode" in which the objects to be justified are entered in the table. The new mode 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 authorize them by dropping them - hence "drag and drop" mode.

1. The Design & Work selection menu

Deploy Data in the Migration Client

1. Data migration via Robocopy interface.

1.1. Create job files

After creating the target directory with the newly created permissions, copy the data. The function "Deploy Data" supports the user. migRaven uses the Robocopy command and recommends the necessary parameters that the user then only has to copy and execute in one batch. Robocopy is with 70 parameters a very flexible copy tool and already installed on Windows machines.

All Robocopy parameters can be found on the Technet page at Microsoft.

Deploy ACL in the migration client

1. Task of the function.

"Deploy ACL" writes the directory structure under the deploy path and authorizes the previously created list and authorization groups. Subdirectories without explicit permissions are not created.

You need write access to the deploy path, eg as administrator. Continue reading

Deploy Groups in the Migration Client

In Design & Work, a new authorization structure was calculated based on the read permission structure according to Microsoft Best Practice. This consists
- from new authorization and list groups,
- Nesting of existing groups and accounts into new groups, as well as nesting of new groups into each other, and
- from access rights that the groups should receive to the directories.

1. Task of this function.

With Deploy Groups, the new authorization and list groups are written to the AD. Into these the nested groups and accounts are nested. You need write access to the AD, eg as a domain admin.

Project type "Table import" in the migration client

NTFS permissions created in an xlsx table are read.

1. Function.

When importing a table, you can use the authorizations prepared in a spreadsheet in migRaven insert and authorize authorization and list groups. Finally, the groups are written into AD and directories and ACLs in a dedicated share. Even a CSV file output during the redesign project can be used as a basis processed accordingly and read in as xlsx here.
