Configure target filesystems
Configure one or more target filesystems to start migrating data.
Add target filesystems with the UI
To add a target filesystem from your dashboard, select the following:
The relevant product from the Products panel.
Add target filesystem.
Create a target from one of the following supported targets:
For information about configuring filesystem health check notifications and email alerts, see Configure email notifications with the UI.
Update target filesystems with the UI
To update existing filesystems, first stop all migrations associated with them.
After saving updates to your configuration, restart the Data Migrator service for your updates to take effect. In most supported Linux distributions, run the command
service livedata-migrator restart.
- Update a target filesystem in the Filesystem Configuration page by selecting it in the Filesystems & Agents panel (or Filesystems panel if you haven't installed Hive Migrator).
- Update the filesystem details and select Save.
- Restart the Data Migrator service.
The following details can be reconfigured:
|Alibaba Cloud OSS||Authentication fields and configuration files can be changed. You can't change the endpoint.|
|Amazon S3||Authentication fields can be changed, but not the authentication type.|
|ADLS Gen2||Authentication fields can be changed, but not authentication type or container name.|
|Google Cloud Storage||The Key File Options can be changed. You can't change the bucket name.|
|HDFS||Only configuration files can be changed.|
|IBM Cloud Object Storage||Authentication fields and configuration files can be changed. You can't change the endpoint.|
|Local filesystem||Authentication fields and configuration files can be changed. You can't change the endpoint.|
|Oracle Object Storage||Authentication fields, type, and configuration files can be changed.|
|S3||Authentication fields and configuration files can be changed. You can't change the endpoint.|
Delete target filesystems with the UI
Before you delete a target filesystem, first delete any associated migrations.
- Select the target you want to remove from the Filesystems panel.
- Select Delete on the Filesystem Configuration page.
Add and manage target filesystems with the CLI
Add filesystems to provide Data Migrator with information required to read content from your source and to migrate content to your target.
You can define multiple target filesystems to which you can migrate simultaneously.
Don't include dots (.) in the names of S3 buckets you want to use with Data Migrator. See the recommendation in the Amazon bucket naming rules guide.
|Add an S3 filesystem resource (select this when using Amazon S3, IBM Cloud Object Storage, or Oracle Object Storage)|
|Delete all target filesystems|
|Delete a target filesystem|
|List of target filesystems|
|Get target filesystem details|
|List the types of target filesystems available|
For more information, see the S3a mandatory parameters and the S3a optional parameters.
After you have your source and target filesystem configured, you're ready to migrate data. If you want to migrate data to a different path on your target filesystem, create path mappings first.
If you want to exclude specific file sizes or file names from your data migrations, define exclusions.
