Viewing data migration policies and schedules

Data Migrator Administration Guide for Hitachi NAS Platform

Part Number
Having created both data migration paths and data migration rules, data migration policies can now be created. Policies assign a rule or set of rules to a specific data migration path. They also define the conditions that initiate data migrations.
To view data migration policies, navigate to Home > Storage Management > Data Migration to display a list of policies and schedules.

The following tables describe the fields on this page:
