What does Server Consolidator provide for logging and verification of migration tasks?
Server Consolidator 7.1
Server Consolidator provides several log files to help you track and review the migration and consolidation activities. You can also use these log files to help resolve any issues that may arise.
For file, folder, and share migration, Server Consolidator will log activity to the DCTLog.txt on the server where the agent runs. The agent runs on the source machine by default. This file is typically located in the \WINNT\TEMP directory on computers running Windows 2000 and in \Temp on computers running Windows NT 4.
For migration of machine local groups, review the Migration.log in the \Program Files\NetIQ\DMA\Logs directory on the computer where Server Consolidator is installed.
For translating security on machine local groups, Server Consolidator will log activity to the DCTLog.txt on the target server.
The following is taken from Chapter 2 of the Domain Migration Administrator / Server Consolidator 7.1 User Guide:
Server Consolidator provides several levels of error logging. These levels help you track the consolidation process at the detail level you need. If you increase the logging level, be sure the target computers where the agents are installed have enough disk space available for the larger log files.
The Migrate Files, Folders, and Shares wizard allows you to specify the appropriate level of logging. The following logging options are available on the Advanced Server Options window:
Logs only the errors that Server Consolidator identifies during the transfer process.
Changed files only
Logs the errors that Server Consolidator identifies, as well as any files, folders, or shares that have changed since the previous transfer process.
Matched and changed files
Logs the errors that Server Consolidator identifies, as well as any files, folders, or shares that Server Consolidator previously transferred.
