When settings are migrated to management zone settings in ZENworks Configuration Management, all of the zone settings except the name servers of the DNS settings are overwritten. The name servers migrated from traditional ZENworks are appended to the existing entries in thelist of ZENworks Configuration Management.
To migrate data from eDirectory to the Management Zone settings in Configuration Management:
To overwrite existing Management Zone settings in the ZENworks database, click (the Migration Tool Settings icon), select the option, select the option, then click to exit the dialog box.
WARNING:This overwrites any existing Management Zone settings in the database, including those that were previously migrated.
Theoption allows you to dramatically improve performance on large migrations by not storing the local history.
There are currently no global migration options specific to Management Zone settings.
Clickin the field.
To model the migration, go to thepanel, then navigate the eDirectory contexts to locate the information to be migrated. To stop listing of the objects in the , click .
IMPORTANT:The individual components of the Novell Application Launcher settings or Imaging policies are displayed so that you can selectively migrate them, instead of migrating all of the settings or policy information.
Repeat Step 3 as necessary to locate and queue all of the information to zone settings that you want to migrate at this time.
IMPORTANT:Every item that you queue in thepanel is migrated when you click the button.
Review your selections in thepanel.
To delete items from the migration queue, select the items and click the icon.
You can use the Ctrl and the arrow keys or Shift and the arrow keys to select multiple items for deletion.
Items queued for migration have their icons and texts dimmed. If you select dimmed items for deletion, they are only deleted from the queue.
WARNING:If you select colored items (with teal or black text), they are deleted from the ZENworks database and are no longer available in ZENworks Control Center.
To migrate all of the dimmed items displayed in thepanel, click the button.
The following information applies to the Migration Utility during or after the migration process:
Focus is immediately moved to thetab, where you can view the sequential progress of the migration.
Thecolumn displays a progress bar for each item being migrated. The overall progress bar is at the bottom of the screen.
Thetab displays all of the items that were migrated. This list is updated dynamically as the items are migrated. You can click back and forth between the and tabs during the migration process. You can also right-click anywhere in the tab’s panel and select to refresh the view with items that might not yet be displayed, but are migrated.
Thetab displays all of the migrated objects, with their texts in teal color after being migrated, in both the and panels.
The teal color persists, so the next time you open the Migration Utility and navigate thecontexts and folders, you can see what you have previously migrated.
Objects that failed migration continue to be displayed with their icons dimmed.
Instructions for handling failed migration items are covered in Step 8.
After the migration has completed, do the following as needed:
Review the teal-colored items in both of thepanels to determine whether you need to queue any other items for migration or delete any previously migrated items from the panel.
You can also use thetab to discover this information.
To delete any items listed in thepanel, select them and click .
WARNING:Thepanel displays both previously migrated data with teal-colored text and items with black-colored text that were either created in ZENworks Control Center or migrated from a different eDirectory object. The delete option () can be used on both. Therefore, it is possible to delete previously existing items from Configuration Management that were never migrated.
On thetab, click the button for each item that failed to migrate, and determine the best course of action. You can either fix the problem and migrate the item, or you can delete it from the tab, which also deletes it from the queue in the panel.
To view only those items that failed, right-click anywhere in the panel and selectto filter the listed items. This listing is maintained only for the current task.
If you have failed items that you do not want to migrate, you can delete only those that are queued (still dimmed) from the queue in thepanel. Right-click anywhere on the tab and select .
This empties thetab listing. It also deletes only the queued items not yet migrated from the panel listing.
WARNING:If you selectin the panel instead, this deletes all listed items from both the panel and the tab, as well as from the ZENworks database, effectively removing them from ZENworks Control Center. To delete only the queued (not yet migrated) items by using , it is safest to do so from the tab.
When you are satisfied with the migration results, continue with one of the following:
To migrate other information to Management Zone settings, continue with Step 3.
To migrate associations, click Step 6: Associations in the field.
If you have completed all eDirectory object and association migrations, clean up your traditional ZENworks installation by continuing with Section 5.14, Managing Your Traditional ZENworks Installation.
