This article will guide you through how to analyze .sptfIventory files created by our farm scanner tool.
The Rencore Migration tool is a client application that can be used to run an analysis of your whole SharePoint farm.
Note: To analyze a SharePoint Farm you must have a SharePoint Farm Inventory File (.spinventory). Which needs to be created on a machine on the farm. More details can be found here.
The client application can be started from the start menu "Rencore Desktop".
Warning: If the size of your farm is larger than 5 Terabyte, the Rencore Migration Desktop tool might fail to analyze the data due to lack of resources (CPU and memory) on a desktop machine.
In such cases the analysis has to be run by Rencore in the cloud hosted version version.
The cloud hosted version of the Rencore Migration is charged seperately due to the additional resources required. Please reach to firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
On the first run of the Migration Rencore tool, you will be presented with the screen below.
