Using the Migration Simulation Tool

Note: This topic applies to the Edinburgh Release.

The simulation tool is designed to enable you to see how migrating your current content filtering settings would be affected if you upgrade to Guardian from SmoothGuardian.

When run, the tool reviews your current SmoothGuardian settings and lists how your settings would be affected and any changes you would need to make if you upgrade. The tool makes no changes to your system.

To run the simulation tool, do the following:

1. From a web browser, go to:

http://smoothwall_IP:81/modules/guardian/cgi-bin/guardian/migration_simulation.cgi

The Guardian3 migration simulation page opens.

2. Click Run.

Your Smoothwall System runs the tool and displays the results of simulating the migration.

For example:

Tip: You can select and copy the results and paste them in to a text document for future reference.

3. When you have reviewed the results, you can proceed with the upgrade.
