Migration App:  Release Date: May 12, 2022

 

Note that the Agent updates happen automatically but take time to roll out. If you are currently running a migration job, the Agent will not update until that job has completed.
 
This product is currently in Limited Availability. We invite any customers interested in using the product to engage Egnyte Professional Services or their Customer Success Manager to have it enabled for their domain. 

Advanced Options on the Details Page

Advanced options appear as a new column on the left-hand side of the migration details page in the UI. Clicking on it expands to include links to Confluence and Unattended configuration options. More options will be released over time.

Confluence Now Controlled from the UI

Confluence is now controlled by the user from the UI. It appears under the Advanced options on the left column of the migration details page. Advanced Mode must first be enabled for the domain. Users may request this by sending an email to support@egnyte.com

The UI also provides an indication as to whether or not Confluence is enabled. It appears on the right column of the migration details page under Other Details.

Unattended Mode

Unattended Mode is a new feature that allows the user to run periodic True-Ups without requiring any manual intervention through the User Interface. 

  1. Unattended Mode must first be enabled for the domain. Users may request this by sending an email to support@egnyte.com. This is only temporary. We'll make this available by default to all customers at a future date.
  2. Once it's enabled for the domain, Unattended Mode can then be enabled by the Migration Operator from the UI for each job.
  3. It appears under Advanced options in the left-hand column of the migration details page.
  4. The user also controls the frequency with which Unattended Mode runs True-Ups through the UI.

  5. Unattended Mode requires the user first to create a migration job and complete at least one successful Data Migration or True-Up.
  6. It will continue to run True-Ups at the specified intervals until the user disables it.
  7. The UI now also indicates whether or not Unattended Mode is enabled in the right column of the migration details page under Other Details.

UI Improvements

  • From the Migration Dashboard, to navigate to the detail page for a migration job, the user can now click the three-dot menu and select Details. To get a quick pop-up view of the job, the user can hover the cursor over the circled "i" to the left of the migration job name.

  • The empty folders migration feature has a slightly different behavior.
    • For Data Migration (Copy command) and the user chooses to migrate empty folders:
      • It creates empty folders on the destination.
    • For True-Ups, it now performs two operations:
      • First, it removes empty folders that don't exist on the source
      • Then it writes empty folders to the destination that DOES exist on the source
  • We added an option for performing a scan as part of the Data Migration initiation. This will only display when the user initiates an operation within the Skip Scan period.

  • The Agent installation process has been changed to no longer fail if the host machine enabled the PowerSave settings. The wizard still checks the PowerSave status and indicates whether or not it is enabled. And if they are not enabled (the desired state), a green checkmark is displayed. However, if they are enabled, a warning message is provided to notify the user that PowerSave should be disabled to allow the Migration App to run without interruption.

This release targets users of the UI-based Migration App exclusively. CMM Agent CLI customers should remain on version 3.7.5. The CMM Agent CLI Product Guide 3.6 is still accurate and up to date for this version.
