Assessment

Sophos Central Migration Tool checks whether your computers are ready to migrate.

When you run Sophos Central Migration Tool, it gets the list of managed computers from the Sophos Enterprise Console database.

Sophos Central Migration Tool then checks whether the computers are ready for migration to Sophos Central. To do this, it uses a set of rules (for example, rules for the supported operating system).

Note Sophos updates the rules automatically, for example if Sophos Central adds support for new features.

Sophos Central Migration Tool can do the check in one of two modes: basic assessment or full assessment. Full assessment requires a Sophos Central account.

During a basic assessment, Sophos Central Migration Tool checks that a computer:

  • Runs an operating system that Sophos Central supports.
  • Only has those features turned on or installed that Sophos Central supports.
  • Has no unsupported server software or component installed.
  • Has a Sophos Endpoint Security and Control version that can be migrated.

During a full assessment, Sophos Central Migration Tool does the basic checks, but also compares all features active on the computers against your Sophos Central license. It alerts you if there are any features turned on that you aren't licensed to use in Sophos Central.



Sophos Central Migration Tool then displays evaluation results, showing whether the computers are ready for migration and, if they aren't, the reasons why they can't be migrated.
