File Server Resource Manager File Management This lesson covers the role of the file resource manager in file management. This lab-based lesson offers step by step instructions in the process of file classification management. Participants learn how to create a local classification property, giving it a type (i.e. yes/no) and a rule that goes along with it, which is related to what we want the rule to do (i.e., corporate documents).

Video Transcription

00:15
F s arm, Fall server resource manager gives us the opportunity to also do file classifications and found classification management. That's the next step you got to take a look at, obviously to do so we'd want to be in our console for false of a resource manager. So we'll go ahead and light Zach
00:31
and we get up
00:33
and we're going to talk about our classifications management steps in the five minutes with task. So declassification classification management. We have two choices. We have properties which has some information already available at rules, which has nothing in it. So start with our properties. Where should don't you create a classification property
00:51
so right click on there and created local property.
00:54
I could also do that from the action pain on the right side of the screen over here.
00:58
So created a local property. It will go to give it a name.
01:03
Corporate documentation
01:04
that's gonna work with.
01:06
So corporate
01:10
documentation
01:15
add a description. Normally a good idea. We're not gonna put a description today, but normally a good idea to put in. We're gonna make it a yes. No knows we have other things. A date time, multiple choice et cetera.
01:26
It obviously yes, no will give us information down here at the bottom. Respect. Another one like number would change the information we have to stick with. Yes, no. And click on.
01:36
Okay,
01:38
so you created one called corporate documentation. It's file classification, Yes. No,
01:42
that's We're going to create a rule.
01:45
So under our rules, were to create a classification rules
01:49
so create a classification rule will requires to putting in a rule Dave
01:53
the rule. They would be something related to what we're trying to d'oh.
01:59
And that's kind of we have to think through.
02:01
Forget the rule name,
02:04
a useful day,
02:06
whatever we want. But a useful day is always beneficial. So in our particular case, we're going to choose
02:13
to call it
02:15
corporate
02:17
documents
02:20
says we already created a
02:22
another one called
02:23
Corporate documentation. We're gonna actually call this when there's corporate documents
02:29
and
02:29
description.
02:30
Do we need to have a description? What Strictly up to you,
02:34
it's always beneficial to have
02:37
a name and a description, so this particular one score for documents rules. So we're gonna have protect rule in there. Also,
02:49
if we spell it right, is better court corporate documents rule,
02:53
Ed.
02:53
We actually wanna make sure it's enabled
02:55
under the scope tab. We're gonna tell it where to go
02:59
applied this rule
03:00
they were gonna do. Add a folder
03:02
under there to tell where to apply it so quick on ad,
03:06
we're gonna get now to our
03:07
all file's directory and my nine head under our corporate documentation Full. That's what we want to work
03:15
They click on. Okay,
03:17
what are classifications? Tab? We're going to
03:21
choose a classification method as
03:23
call it a class fire or folder Classifier or windows Power show classifier. We're going to fold a classifier.
03:30
So actually would work with full a classifier
03:32
and choose the property to sign it. Defies knows we have corporate documentation as our only option, and we're gonna do yes or no will stick with Yes, in terms of our environment. At last, we're gonna took our evaluation type. Were to reevaluate existing property values would run this again. We want to make sure that we aggregate the values for yes. No,
03:53
those It's check force. They're automatically re aggravate. We want re
03:59
evaluate, add aggregate the values and that we would click on.
04:02
Okay,
04:03
what's we actually have everything input.
04:06
You know, we've actually gone through the first couple of stacks,
04:09
and now we want to create a classifications
04:13
environment that will let us do the next step of the puzzle.
04:16
So we want to actually work with
04:19
a
04:20
classifications
04:21
rule
04:23
in this environment.
04:25
So you take your classification rules list and you say, Run classification with all rules now
04:30
quick, that rather classified laceration. Gallant. No, we want to wait.
04:35
We could run in the background, but what a weight.
04:38
Actually read the classification.
04:41
Bring us up a window toss that there's two files that fit our classification.
04:46
A school down to the bottom
04:47
tells us what the two files are. So it says they're here and it's called Doctor and not one, not one text.
04:54
It gives us the report on it in a HTML format
04:59
DIY steamboat format. And so now we've had our rules of place. We want to go through the next step of the puzzle. Well, the next step of the puzzle is going to be that file management tasks that we have on our screen on the left here
05:12
Foundation of tasks. There isn't one there. So we're going to what to
05:16
create a father does with task to
05:19
accomplished a purpose,
05:21
Ed,
05:23
the first thing we do is obviously make sure that it are.
05:26
And this room body done pre done for us in our all file's directory lab files My nine ed, for example. Corporate documentation. You have to Doc's. We also want to look here, it our data,
05:40
those We have several things in here that have different dates. So since we have several things that are different dates,
05:45
we want to work with that piece of the puzzle.
05:48
They have different dates. So that's what we're gonna work with so that our farm is a task for you.
05:54
Go ahead and write, click here
05:57
and choose a
05:59
create follow, but is re tasked.
06:00
Gets it started,
06:02
and we need to give it a name. So expire documents
06:08
Very simple. We just call it expire
06:13
Docks
06:14
and I could put it expired documents of a lot, but doctors sufficient it. I would actually
06:17
also give a description, for example, of
06:20
woo old
06:23
docks.
06:26
Two
06:28
different
06:30
folder.
06:33
So I put something in there. It's descriptive.
06:36
What's up with the description in there? I want to go ahead and choose
06:41
the scope of my environment. Because, remember,
06:44
on this,
06:45
I need to
06:46
create the whole piece of puzzle. So what's my scope? So where am I going to do this? Well, I need to choose the folder. What? To apply This do. So we'll click on add for the scope.
06:56
We want to drill down to our all files.
06:59
You really drill down beyond that to my nine and drove down there to data it click out. Okay,
07:04
so he said, apply this fiber. Is we tasked to that folder?
07:10
Remember, we're calling this one expired documents, so we need to
07:14
take the next step of this. Had moved to our action screen here that says type is fall expiration. We could have customer our best encryption.
07:23
So
07:24
there's our
07:25
our options. Who would go ahead and click on browse because we need thio nowhere to move them before expiring. So we need to drill down to all files. Mod nine and goto expired.
07:38
Quick guide.
07:39
Okay.
07:41
And next we're going to
07:44
I think about
07:45
are other conditions.
07:46
Do we actually have under the condition when I work with so file expression gets us the
07:51
piece of the puzzle that we started with.
07:54
We also have notification. We have report and we have condition. Tab. So it's going to condition.
08:00
And those there's a
08:01
blank space. We can add any condition we want or we can actually use some of the basic built in functionality. So on our condition, days since it was it was created day, since it was last modified day since files last access
08:16
and filed any patterns such as certain patterns that would work it.
08:20
So in that case, we'll run a deuce Will do days since the follows last modified
08:26
so quick id
08:28
last modified their
08:31
and we can choose any number of days. But if we go back to our
08:35
folder view wherever we had different dates in our environment, so go back to all files. Lab files.
08:41
Bye Died
08:41
data.
08:43
We had things feel
08:45
2010 and things in the newer. So let's say
08:48
100 days
08:50
I could do 200 days or 300 days. It wouldn't even matter at this point, but 100. Anything older than 100
08:56
head
08:58
Terms of
08:58
that feeds the puzzle. We're done with the condition tab and we actually would want to decide whether we're going to run this. So we're gonna schedule Tab
09:07
and we're gonna run it
09:09
monthly.
09:11
So what's the month? We're gonna run it and we need to pick a day.
09:15
Ed
09:16
was glad.
09:18
Do it
09:18
On the last day of the month.
09:20
Only the 30th may not exist in a month. So this guy and choose last rather than the 30th. So the last day of whatever month were in.
09:28
So in April there'll be 28 or 29 depending on the year. Other months, it would be the 30th or 31st. So we're just selecting the last day of the month.
09:37
And we also want to cook okay here because we said we can run continuously on new files. We can live it in hours. How long it's gonna run for. We're going to select what time to run it at. Typically, you would run it at for example,
09:50
12 am so around midnight
09:54
and I would say 12 a.m.
09:58
What do you say? 12. 15?
10:00
I am
10:01
What? It was
10:03
the last day. That was
10:05
good days. We got okay.
10:09
And now we have a fire management task. So here on our farm management task. We have
10:13
want to click out that we see we have. We can edit it
10:18
at its five days. A task we could disable. The following is a task or we could run it. We could run the father's management task now interactively. So we don't have to wait to the last day of the month. Right? It works. We're going to run it now, so we're gonna run the five minutes task now. Quick, Quick on that. It says
10:33
wait for the task to complete.
10:35
It could take hours or days. Yes, it can. If you have a big environment.
10:39
Look out! Okay.
10:41
It won't take that long for us because we have a small lab of our It tells us that applied to six files or six files impacted by this scroll down. That tells us February, January, July, June, March, May are all there
10:52
if we open up our folder view here.
10:56
Hey, good better are all files. Lab files by nine. And data directory. There's still one left. There's April if we go back to our expired folders we don't have
11:07
on our server of our But the day it was executed, the drive there was involved in the directory that was involved in the sub directory, the final directory at all the data. So we had to drill way down to get to our
11:18
piece of the puzzle with all of the information of what we've actually run.
11:24
So we've actually got through the process of
11:26
creating a
11:28
classifications,
11:30
property
11:31
classifications rule and a file management task associated with that in order to clean up our environment. And remember, if we actually take it expired these documents, we could put him in a
11:41
directory that we frequently offload to a permanent storage. And then we could delete him from our environment and pull off the backed up permanent storage that we have in cold storage somewhere if we need to in the future.
