You can use the Options windows of the Migration utility to configure certain options before migrating objects to ZENworks Configuration Management To launch the Options window, click on the top right corner of the utility.
Figure B-1 Global Migration Options
Review the following sections for more information on the configuring the migration options by using the Migration Utility:
When you are migrating an object that already exists in ZENworks Configuration Management, you can use theoption to cause the latest object being migrated to be used instead. The existing object is overwritten with the new migration object in the ZENworks Configuration Management database.
NOTE:If you choose to remigrate an application to ZENworks Configuration Management with theoption enabled, you must ensure that the version of the application you want to remigrate is higher by one than the version of the existing ZENworks Configuration Management bundle. This is required to avoid inconsistent results on the managed device when the bundle is assigned to it.
Theoption allows you to dramatically improve performance on large migrations by not storing the local history.
Theoption forces application migration when the utility fails to migrate one or more attributes to the MSI.
An MSI bundle is considered to be failed when a warning is produced while converting an AOT Application object to an MSI. These bundles can often be migrated successfully in spite of the warning. For example, the warning might be produced because a Windows shortcut link contained in the AOT is no longer valid.
If you enable this option, the warning messages are not presented. You can review the migration log for information on what attributes were not migrated.
Theoption means the application is created and migrated, but the directory holding the temporary files and new MSI file is not automatically deleted. This allows you to have access to the newly created MSI before it is incorporated into the content service in Configuration Management.
Theoption lets you upload content to the content server. This option is selected by default.
The applications are migrated as Install MSI action to the ZENworks Configuration Management server and also uploaded to the content server if theoption is selected and the source path of the file is resolved to a local path or UNC path at the time of migration.
The applications are migrated as Install Network MSI action to the ZENworks Configuration Management server and are not uploaded to the content server in the following scenarios:
Theoption is deselected.
Theoption is selected but the source path of the file is not resolved to a local path or UNC path at the time of migration, or the file is not found.
Theoption lets you migrate the distribution options in applications as individual actions such as Edit INI action, Registry Edit action, or Run Script action that can be edited. By default, it is selected. Deselect the option to migrate the distribution options in applications as MSI.
If theoption is enabled, then the applications are migrated as specific actions:
An application having registry changes is migrated as a bundle with Registry Edit action.
An application having INI settings is migrated as a bundle with an Edit INI File action.
An application having text file changes is migrated as a bundle with an Edit Text File action.
An application having icons or shortcuts is migrated as a Windows bundle with a Run Script action or File Removal action.
An application having application files changes is migrated as follows:
Files as Copy Files or Install Files action.
Directory as a Copy Directory, Install Directory, or Create/Delete Directory action.
Deletion of files as a File Removal action
Deletion of directory as a Create/ Delete Directory action.
If theoption is disabled, then the application is migrated as an Install MSI action. But, the Edit Text File action, Copy Directory, Install Directory, File Removal are not a part of this Install MSI action.
The c:\temp.option allows you to place the temporary migration files in a different location than the default users %TEMP% directory. If you migrate an application with a very long path (longer than 256 characters), this option enables you to make the temporary path short, such as
Theoption prompts for redirection to the appropriate migration task when you migrate the associations for an object that is not yet migrated. After migrating the object, you can return to and click to resume migrating the associations. This option is useful if you are migrating just a few items and want to deal with association failures on the spot. If you want to perform an unattended migration, do not select this option.
Theoption enables you to specify the context to search for the matching entities in the destination user source during migration of the groups and container associations. If you do not specify the context, then the search is performed in the entire destination user source.
For example, if the destination user source is migration.orgunit.org.com and you specify the context as OU1/OU2/users, the utility looks for matching entities in migration.orgunit.org.com/OU1/OU2/users.
If you do not specify the context, the search is performed in the entire destination user source, which is migration.orgunit.org.com.
When you are migrating an image object whose image file already exists in the content server, you can use theoption to overwrite the image file. This option is disabled by default.
When you are migrating Launcher Configuration settings from Novell eDirectory, select the Options dialog box by selecting to skip the assignment.option to convert the settings into a Launcher Configuration policy in Configuration Management. During migration, an assignment from the identity object to the new Launcher Configuration policy is automatically created unless you turn off this function in the

allows you to configure the settings for uploading files to the content server.
Theoption uploads data in chunks.This option is selected by default. Migration might fail when a proxy is enabled on the device hosting the migration utility. To perform the migration, disable the option.
Theoption establishes a persistent connection with the ZENworks Configuration Management Server.
Theoption allows you specify the timeout period for the read or write operation. By default, this option is set to .
