File Server Migration and Cleanup

Before you start

Prior to managing your users and access rights in tenfold, you might want to clean and reorganize the existing access rights on your file servers. It is possible to generate hundreds of privilege groups and list privileges in the AD for thousands of users on numerous directories, link them and import them into the ACLs in a very short time. To do so, the old privileges are recorded and then cleaned in a matter of clicks. Then, a privilege structure spanning all levels is produced and modelled in tenfold.


Under Windows, it is possible not only to set new rights, but also to migrate and restructure file servers. With GPO Deploy, you can generate new privilege groups very quickly according to the Windows group policies and roll them out to the existing system.

To optimize coordination processes during migration and restructuring, it is possible to integrate specialist departments into the migration process. To do so, the project admin must simply assign the network resources to the relevant data owners and can then seamlessly integrate the results into the project.

Optionally, it is also possible to conduct a future-proof transfer of a Novell file system to a Microsoft file server system according to Microsoft best practices. Plan a new structure and supply it with new, consistent and efficient access rights.
