File Server Migration and Cleanup

Before You Start

Before you begin managing your users and access rights in tenfold, you might want to clean and reorganize the existing access rights on your file servers. Hundreds of privilege groups and list privileges in the AD for thousands of users on numerous directories can be generated, then linked and imported into the ACLs in a very short time. To do so, the old privileges are recorded and then cleaned in just a matter of clicks. Once all this is done, tenfold will reproduce and model a privilege structure to represent all levels.


Did you know that, in Windows, you can not only set new access rights, but also migrate and restructure file servers? GPO Deploy allows you to generate new privilege groups swiftly and in accordance with Windows group policies, then roll them out to the current system.

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

Optionally, you can also transfer a Novell file system to a Microsoft file server system in accordance with Microsoft best practices. Just plan a new structure and supply it with new, consistent and efficient access rights.
