Using LegacyFlo you can backup email data from the Vaultastic V4 Active store to a zipped EML file in your own AWS S3 bucket.
Before creating migration requests in LegacyFlo, ensure the following:
- S3 bucket has been created
- The S3 registered with LegacyFlo
A. Create an S3 bucket on AWS
Create your S3 bucket in a supported region and allow list and write access to LegacyFlo. The steps for the same are given in the links below:
- Get an AWS account.
- Create an S3 bucket in a region supported by Mithi.
- Give necessary permissions.
- When the S3 bucket is used as a source, give list and read access to the objects on the bucket
- When the S3 bucket is used as a destination, allow list and write access to LegacyFlo.
B. Register your S3 bucket as a source/destination S3 bucket on LegacyFlo
For LegacyFlo to upload data to your S3 bucket, it needs to be added to as a destination S3 bucket in LegacyFlo. The steps for doing the same are as given below:
- Login to LegacyFlo
- Click on the Initials icon on the top of the left-most pane.
- Select Register S3 bucket
- Click on Add S3 bucket button. A dialog box will pop-up
- On the Prepare Bucket page, you will be shown the list of steps to be completed to create and grant access to the S3 bucket. Confirm that you have done as instructed and click on I confirm that the above configuration is complete.
- Click Continue
- On the Configure, Verify & Save page, give the Bucket Name and select the Bucket Region.
- Click Verify. LegacyFlo will check the access to the bucket.
- If LegacyFlo cannot access the bucket, you will be shown an error message similar to All access to this object has been disabled. Check S3 access rights and name and retry.
- If the connection is successful then click on Save. LegacyFlo will remember this S3 for further requests.
Migrate data to your own S3 bucket
Once the preparation is done, you can start the migration by submitting migration requests to LegacyFlo.
Note: This step has to be executed for each mailbox to be migrated.
The request type used to submit a LegacyFlo request will depend on the source type. The table below gives the details of the preparation and request parameters for different source types:
Retrieve data from S3
You can retrieve the data by
- Downloading the zip file, either using the AWS console or a tool such as the S3 browser.
- Migrating the data to a SkyConnect or Vaultastic account.
