6.4 Migrating to GroupWise

  1. On the Stage 3: Data Migration page, review the tasks you will perform in order to complete Stage 3, then click Next if you are ready to proceed.

    The Select Users to Migrate page lists all users on the Exchange server.

  2. Select the Exchange users to migrate during the current migration session (server worksheet 8), then click Next.

    Use Check All to select all Exchange users.

  3. Select migration options (server worksheet 9), then click Next.

    The Select Public Folders to Migrate page lists all public folders on the Exchange server.

  4. Select the Exchange public folders to migrate during the current migration session (server worksheet item 10), then click Next.

    Use Check All to select all Exchange public folders

    NOTE:Exchange distribution lists/groups are not selected at this point. All distribution lists/groups that have been assigned to post offices are automatically migrated.

    If the Migration Utility encounters Exchange user IDs that include periods (.), it prompts you for a character to replace the period with, as described in Section 3.2.6, Selecting a User ID Conversion Rule.

  5. If prompted, select the conversion rule you want to use (server worksheet item 11), then click Next.

  6. On the Send E-Mail to Migrated Users page (server worksheet item 12):

    1. Select whether you want to send notification messages to Exchange users when they are migrated.

      Notification messages provide users’ GroupWise user IDs and passwords, along with their server address information. Users cannot log in to GroupWise without this information.

    2. Select whether you want to send copies of notification messages to the Administrator user.

    3. Modify the default subject line and message text as needed for your users and circumstances.

    4. Click Next to display the Ready to Migrate Data page.

  7. If you are performing the migration over a slow link, or if you want to check the results of each stage of the migration process, select Pause after Each Step of the Migration Process.

    Selecting this option allows eDirectory object synchronization to complete over the slow link before the next step of the migration begins. It also allows you to ensure that each step of the migration process is successful before proceeding to the next step. If you select this option, make sure that someone is monitoring the migration process.

  8. Click Migrate to start the migration.

    Status information and error messages are logged throughout the migration process. The Migration Utility log file can be displayed in Normal mode, Verbose mode, or Diagnostic mode, depending on the amount of detail desired. By default, the name of the log file is migrate.log and it is located in the Migration Utility installation directory. You can change the name or location by clicking Save Log As. You can delete the current log file and start a new log file by clicking Clear Log.

  9. If you configured the migration to pause between stages, check the results of each migration stage, then click Continue or Stop, depending on whether you are satisfied with the migration results.

  10. When the migration is complete, click Finish.

  11. Continue with Section 7.0, Performing Post-Migration Tasks.
