Data Migrator Administration Guide for Hitachi NAS Platform

Part Number

This page can be used to name, define, add, and modify Data Migration Rules using rule syntax. Rules can be built with a series of INCLUDE and EXCLUDE statements. Each of these statements can contain a number of expressions specifying the type of files and the conditions under which they will be migrated.

For example:


  1. Navigate to Home > Storage Management > Data Migration Rules to display the Data Migration Rules page and then click add.

    The following table describes the fields on this page:

    Item/Field Description
    Name Enter a name for the new rule. The rule name can include only alphanumeric characters, hyphens, and underscores.
    Description Enter a description of what the rule does.

    Click the appropriate option, either WFS/HNAS or Cloud.

    Case-sensitive pattern checks To specify case-sensitive rule checking, select this check box.
    Rule Definition Insert the syntax for the data migration rule.
    Note: For Data Migrator to Cloud only, files that are 4,096 bytes or less will not be migrated.
  2. Verify your settings, then click OK to save the rule, or click cancel to decline.
