How do I import mapping information for an existing source and target account into the migrated objects table in DMA using a CSV file?


You can import a list of objects into the list of migrated objects stored in the Domain Migration Administrator database. Then, you can perform post-migration tasks on those objects, such as translating security. This feature allows you to resolve migration issues for accounts created in the target domain using tools other than Domain Migration Administrator.

You can export a list of objects into a .csv file from an application and modify the file so that it contains the required information, or you can manually create the .csv file. The file must be formatted as either ANSI or Unicode and tab delimited. The first row of text in the file (header row) must contain the following keywords:

  • SourceDomain
  • SourceSam
  • SourceType
  • TargetDomain
  • TargetSam
  • TargetType

List one object per row in a tab-delimited format under the header row with the appropriate information for each field. The text in your file may be similar to the following example:

SourceDomain  SourceSam  SourceType  TargetDomain  TargetSam  TargetType MYSOURCE     TestUser01     User     MYTARGET     TestUser01    User MYSOURCE     TestUser02     User     MYTARGET     TestUser0     User

To import a list of objects in the migrated objects table:

  1. Click Domain Migration Administrator in the left pane of the main window.
  2. On the Action menu, click Import migrated objects from a CSV file.
  3. Select the .csv file that contains the objects you want to add to the migrated objects table.
  4. Click OK.
