easily clean up NTFS directory and permission structures
migRaven.one stands for the redesign, optimization and migration of directory structures and permissions in the Microsoft environment. Without affecting the productive system, thousands of directories can be easily edited and provided with new, long term clean permissions, simply using drag and drop.
migRaven.one allows you to browse comfortably through your AD objects, in order to understand complex correlations, affiliations and relationships between the user accounts and the permission groups. In this manner, targeted and clear information can be gathered regarding questions about the permissions of individual users or Groups.
The prerequisite for an efficient processing of (often historically developed) NTFS permissions is an understanding of the current situation. migRaven.one provides you with an overview regarding your permission situation, answers targeted questions about the permission of individual user or directories and creates the basis of future Action.
If the directory structures are too complex, neither the users nor the administrators can work efficiently. Then, the users quickly create their own systems, producing huge amounts of redundant data in their specific folder structures, whereas the administrators lose overview of the relevant permissions.
In spite of the better permission system, the change on NTFS file server of Microsoft, NetApp or EMC is a must sooner or later – and all permissions need to be rebuilt! migRaven.one automates this complex process and converts your Novell-permissions in the Windows world – quickly, consistently, strictly according to Microsoft Best Practice.
migRaven.one analyzes your current or planned permission structure and brings all existing permissions automatically in a new, clean permission group structure. In doing so, the existing direct permissions, multiple permissions and other problems are identified and revised completely.
migRaven.one analyzes your current or planned permission structure and independently revises all list permissions. In addition, migRaven.one reads the directory structure and permission structure, identifies all permission endpoints and sets exact list permissions automatically according to the Need-To-Know-principle.
Thanks to the innovative graph database, migRaven.one can read and simulate the complete directory structures and permission groups. This way, the outcomes of new permissions and even a complete directory redesign can be verified for consistency and efficiency, before the modifications are transmitted to the live System.
You need to clean up your historically evolved NTFS permissions or migrate them, but you do not know how to start? No problem – the intuitive drag and drop mode will free you from the constraints of the complex group structures which, thanks to migRaven, are generated automatically in the Background.
A sound figure base helps to identify problems and to make progress tangible. migRaven.one supports you with different reports concerning your file services as well as your AD. This way, you get uncomplicated valuable indicators on the status of your directories and permissions.
migRaven.one analyzes the folder and permission steps, number of direct permissions and other indicators of the directory- and permission structure. This way, the target structure can point out errors like incorrect permissions and unreasonable selection of parameters, which simplifies analysis and optimization of the future structures significantly.
Intentional? Mistake? Operational errors? migRaven.one is able to prevent employees from deleting and renaming important directories and folders via the specific ModifyPlus permission. ModifyPlus can be assigned for every directory without additional expenditure. Side effects? None!
With migRaven, you can automatically create the name and description of the generated permission groups flexibly according to your own parameters. Also, exclusive permissions can be easily remapped and standardized. Thus, individual requests and different requirements for future permission groups are achieved in accordance to the applicable best practices.
Have you optimized your directory structure and/or the permissions in migRaven.one and would you like to move the modifications now to your live system? No problem! migRaven.one creates a parallel directory- and permission structure and populates these with your data. You then only have to refer from the old share to the new one.
migRaven.one also takes care of the transfer of data to new, clean authorized directories at the last step of a redesign or a migration. For that, an individually configurable Robocopy-Script is created by migRaven. In this manner, migRaven.one creates a transparent copy job and sets up a standardized proven method.
The unique approach of migRaven.one allows, first to create a parallel directory structure with new permissions according to your own requirement. Data can be replicated in the new directory, before the complete share is provided for the users on appointment X.
Typical problems like “My table is delivering incorrect results” or “My PDF files are incomplete” arise, when the paths between the linked files change during migration or redesign. The optional module LinkFixer adjusts all links automatically and this way prevents corrupt files and productivity losses.
