CopyRight2: User and Group Migration

 
 
Besides of automatically migrating all user and group accounts that would be unresolvable at the destination during the file migration or in case of Microsoft FTP server migrations, CopyRight2 allows you to selectively migrate accounts in a separate "User and Group Copy" job giving you more control over the migration taking place. Running an actual migration job of 10.000 users & groups is lightning fast and completes in less than 10 minutes usually, if sufficient bandwidth is available. You can use local account databases, of member or workgroup systems, Windows Active Directory or Univentions' UCS Domain Controller as a source or target. You can use Azure AD connect to replicate changes to the cloud by specifying an on-premise domain controller as source or target. CopyRight2 supports any combination of those services.

To create a user and group migration job only takes a few mouse clicks, it actually involves 4 steps outlined below:
 
1. Add a new "User and Group Copy" job and fill out the name and optionally the description.




2. Next choose the source and the destination computer. You can specify any combination of roles no matter whether the computers are domain controllers, domain members or configured for workgroup mode:
 
 
3. Then select the users and groups that you want to migrate either from the local security account database (SAM) or from the Active Directory structure depending on the source server's configuration:
 

 
 
4. Optionally change the settings and enable the "Migrate user passwords" feature to migrate the user's passwords as well:
 

After the "User and Group Copy" job has been created you can run it either interactively from within the GUI or schedule it for background execution taking place at another time.

  FAQs  
Does it satisfy my migration's requirements?
Does it satisfy my migration's requirements?
To put it short. Yes. In more detail, it supports:
  • file server, Active Directory and IIS HTTP/FTP server migrations.
  • migrations between systems configured for workgroup mode, as domain members or domain controllers and any possible combination of those, for example from a system configured for workgroup mode to a domain member.
  • migrations within the same or across different domains, with/without trust relationships and with/without sidHistory.
  • Windows® servers (certified for Windows® 2000 up to Windows® 2019) and a wide variety of network attached storage (NAS) solutions, such as NetApp®, EMC®, Hitachi®, Synology®, Linux Samba and more as source and target.
  • consolidations, for example a migration from 2 source systems onto 1 target system, including methods to resolve naming conflicts.
  • Windows® cluster services as source and/or target.
  • LAN/MAN/WAN migration scenarios.
  • offline migrations, where source and target are not connected at all.
  • large scale migration scenarios using the built-in rollout planning feature.
  • for MAN/WAN scenarios a block transfer mode, similar to Rsync, reusing existing data on the target if only a few bytes of a file changed, instead of copying the whole file again.
  • share-by-share migrations while maintaining the UNC namespace, utilizing Windows® distributed file system (DFS).
  • a real-time synchronization feature reducing the timeframe needed for the cut-over to minutes. You can literally perform the migration during lunch break if needed.
  • an optional comparison report for files, folders and permissions to properly document the success of your migration.

How is CopyRight2 Licensed?
How is CopyRight2 Licensed?
There are 3 types of licenses:
  • The CopyRight2 Standard Edition is licensed per source and target system (server or NAS). Once a license is activated it cannot be moved to another system. Licenses of target systems can be re-used when those systems become the source of the next migration again. Prices include 2 years of warranty, free updates/upgrades and 24/7 support via email, telephone or Cisco WebEx. For example, if you want to migrate 2 source systems onto 1 target system, you would need 3 single licenses of CopyRight2 Standard Edition.
  • The CopyRight2 Enterprise Edition has a one time fee for unlimited activations and ships with 10 support cases.
  • The CopyRight2 Midrange Edition has a one time fee for up to 50 activations per year and ships with 5 support cases.
  • Additional support for the Midrange/Enterprise Editions can be purchased in our online store or from a reseller. Support cases opened because of a product defect, will not be deducted from your contingent.
