Vault for Administrators

IM124378 – Airing Dirty Laundry: Cleaning and Loading Your Data to Vault
When loading data into Vault data management software, several tools are available to aid in the process of migration and data loading to make the process smoother. It is not uncommon for files to be in question during this process as being unsupported data or corrupt, or for them to be missing file references or containing improper metadata. These issues can cause delays in the migration to proper data management with Vault. Adding new data to an existing Vault also has challenges, such as the possibility of duplicate files. In this class, we’ll learn about the tools available to transition into Vault, as well as merge new data into an existing Vault while mitigating as many errors as possible.

IM122725 – Vault clinic – troubleshoot techniques for Vault issues
