Does DMA Translate Security on Cluster Server Resources?

Domain Migration Administrator 7.x


Although DMA does not process any of the cluster resources, it will not have any problems translating security on the file system share hosted on the cluster.  Since data is normally hosted on a shared drive, the File System security translation is persistent across all nodes.  Even if the cluster virtual name (instead of individual node names) is chosen as the computer to be translated, DMA will translate the call to the active node of the cluster and translate the File System permissions on the share, files and directories.  But again, DMA will not translate the cluster resource share permissions and they should be manually changed or accessed via SID History.
