Heya folks, Ned here again. We've released our next set of features and fixes for the Windows Server 2019 Storage Migration Service, as part of cumulative update KB4580390 (Windows Server 2019) & KB4580386 (SAC 1903, 1909) This update comes optionally in the third week of October and then as part of the normal "Patch Tuesday" on November 10. Read on for details.

 

We also have big new SMS features coming in early 2021 that I'll be talking about at the Windows Server Summit on Thursday, October 29, 2020. Register now, it's free!

 

What's new

Installing these KBs on your SMS orchestrator and any WS2019 destination servers gives you:

 

  • Significant file transfer and especially re-transfer performance improvements
  • Significant inventory performance improvement with large number of files and folders 
  • Inventory validation
  • Fix for transfers failing if a source computer had an extremely large number of shares
  • Fix for the "Source not available" error when migrating account was missing permissions on shares
  • Fix for cluster network migrations
  • Fix for Windows Server 2003 inventory failure (yes I said 2003!)
  • Test for Windows Server 2008 R2 required update
  • Various Samba-Linux migration fixes
  • Various database and reliability fixes

There is also a new Windows Admin Center releasing into the feed. It includes:

 

  • A new prerequisites page to help you get ready for a migration

  • Inventory validation option

Capture2.PNG

  • Automatic install of the cluster management tools on the orchestrator if not installed

Capture5.PNG

  • Various ease of use and layout changes based on customer feedback
  • Note: we're also going to add automatic installation of the SMS Proxy on the destination server if not already installed, but it will be in another WAC update a few weeks after this one.

 

Sum up

I'll be updating the official SMS docs on some of these points, I know your boss doesn't believe in blogs even though I wrote both articles. :D 

 

The  KB4580390 (Win10 1809, Windows Server 2019) & KB4580386 (1903, 1909) cumulative updates are available on the Microsoft Catalog for download, and will automatically install via Windows Update in the November patch Tuesday release. Let me know how it goes. And remember, more big features coming early next year, come watch the Windows Server Summit on Thursday, October 29, 2020 to learn more

Hey Ned,

 

I applied KB4580390 to a Windows 2019 running System Center Data Protection Manager. We are leveraging "Modern tiered storage" within DPM. I know DPM does some ReFS magic to get tiered storage to work so I was suspicious that this update might have broke something and indeed once I removed the update all was good again. It might be worth hitting up the System Center folks to see if they have tested this update.

Microsoft

@Paul Brock Ohno! Do you have a specific error or something I can share?

Contributor

@Ned Pyle In DPM the volumes showed as available in the Management / Disk Storage section but when a backup tried to happen DPM said the volume was not available. I could be proved wrong that the update didn't cause the problem but when I uninstalled the update the problem went away. I didn't save the specific error message.

Hello @Ned Pyle 

 

Ever since installing this above patch I can no longer validate the source.

 

Validation error is as follows:

We can transfer data from the source computer at maximum speed. This might fail when required software updates are not installed on the source.
Fail: Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component

 

If this is by design and the source machine needs to have all of the current updates how will that work for EOL servers.  My source machine is a server 2008 R2 and I currently do not have the ESU purchased on this server.  Please advise 

Microsoft

@OT_Pilzz Hi. We have a couple customers reporting this, we have a workaround coming to WAC and are still trying to figure out why some folks are seeing this (we cannot reproduce the error locally). I look to have a fix out today https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/storage/storage-migration-service/known-issues#stora...

Frequent Visitor

@Ned Pyle thanks for the update and quick reply.  Please advise once the fix has been pushed out. 

Microsoft

@OT_Pilzz workaround SMS tool just hit the WAC feed. Update, go to "adjust settings", you will see a new option to ignore validation errors. enable that, proceed, transfer should work fine

Frequent Visitor

@Ned Pyle I did the update to SMS extension to version 1.115.0, but when I go back to my old saved job I do not see that option under adjust settings. 

 

 

Microsoft

@OT_Pilzz  

Clear your browser cache, browsers are pieces of garbage

Frequent Visitor

@Ned Pyle that worked but it messed up my saved job.  I will re-run the scan again on the source and advise if i am able to complete the transfer once I ignore the error.  I will let you know.  Thanks

Microsoft

@OT_Pilzz it should have no effect on jobs. WAC is a sock puppet, SMS saves all state in the database, WAC just shows its state and tells it to go do things.

Frequent Visitor

@Ned Pyle not sure if my previous troubleshooting caused my job to get corrupted.  I will keep you posted on my progress but i will most likely need to re-create the job.  I am just glad there is a fix now

Occasional Visitor

@Ned Pyle

 

Is there already a solution for this? We wanted to use WAC with storage migration services to migrate a Windows 2008 server to a Windows 2019 server. Instead of the good old robocopy try something new. 

Unfortunately it fails on the last validation before transfer with the HRESULT EFAIL error......is the 1.115.0 extension version providing the validation skip option. We have updated to 1.115.0 and selected it in the transfer settings to skip validation and it started....after displaying the fail error first.

 

Progress does not show much yet although we have to move quite some data....

Frequent Visitor

@Haassie i had to clear the cache on my browser then reload the WAC.  Once you are in the job go to "adjust settings", you will see a new option to ignore validation errors. enable that, proceed, transfer should work fine

 

@Ned Pyle I was able to complete the transfer.  My old job was corrputed or had DB corruption.  Once I created a new job, did the scan and ignored the validation errors, I was able to complete the transfer successfulyy.  Ironically it only did the differences since it was the same source and destination files.  Thanks for all your help with getting this working

Microsoft

@OT_Pilzz glad to hear it!

Microsoft

@Haassie I can't tell what your question is, sorry.

Occasional Visitor

I get almost the same error when validating a migration from SBS2008 to Server2019:

 

Mislukt: Failed to transfer data from the source computer at maximum speed. Make sure that all required software updates are installed on the source.
 
When I look in the eventlog, I see eventid 5000 which doesn't seem to exist.
 
Is it safe to continue, overriding the validation?

@RogiervanderVelde Yes, please override
