Server Configuration

Server Configuration is the start screen of RealMigrator:

Server Configuration gives an overview about Client Version, Super Administrators, Administrators, View-Only Administrators and Users.

By default all data will be migrated to the RealMigrator cloud storage farm. But when a company decides to migrate to its own server or storage the input field External Storage is visible (below input field View-Only Users).

Global Client Configuration contains default settings for migration. Via own scripts it is possible to individualize the migrations.

Roles in RealMigrator

The following table gives an overview about the roles and their permissions.


Super Administrator

All RealMigrator rights and permissions.


Limited permissions. Only permissions to create and edit Groups and users and clients. No permissions to edit Modules and Configurations

View-Only Administrator

Only permission to browse through RealMigrator.


A user has only the permission to list and edit client objects which have the same UPN. Use * to match all users.

Global Client Configuration

Global Client Configuration is necessary for general migration configurations and general migration settings. A super administrator (an administrator as well) has the possibility to configure a Log Level, a Module loop delay and a Reset code.


Log Level

Three different log levels are available: Error, Info and Debug

Module loop delay

Sleeptime after looping through modules. The default value are 1 800 000 ms (30 minutes).

Reset code

A client is always checking the own configurations after a defined period of time. This means that the client compares the selected client settings with the selected server settings. In addition the client connect to the server based on Module loop delay. By this time value the client is starting a Module loop and the client is checking the Reset code. If there is a change the client will takes over the new configuration. If there is no change, the client will still use the existing configuration.

RealMigrator offers seven settings for bandwidth. Each of them have defaults. Of course a super administrator (an administrator as well) has the possibility to set own settings.
