If the connection between Linux and Windows is set up correctly, as described in Step 3 in Preparing for the Post Office Migration, you can use Windows ConsoleOne to perform the reconfiguration of the post office. You can also use Linux ConsoleOne if desired.
In ConsoleOne, disable logins to the post office:
Browse to and right-click the Post Office object, then click.
Select, then click to save the setting.

(Conditional) If you are using SSL, update the location for the certificate and key files:
Browse to and right-click the Library object, then click.
Select the storage area that you have migrated, then click.
In thefield, provide the full path to the storage area from the point of view of the POA running on the Linux server.
Clicktwice to save the storage area information.
Update the location information for the post office:
Display theproperty page of the Post Office object.
In thefield, change the path to the location on the Linux server where you copied the post office. For example:
For a Linux server, ConsoleOne interprets the UNC path as a Linux path. Do not put a Linux path with front slashes in the UNC Path field, because backslashes are expected.
Clickto save the new path information for the post office.
Check the status of the link between the POA still running on NetWare or Windows and the MTA it communicates with:
At the MTA server console, use.
At the MTA console, look on the Links page.
After the ConsoleOne updates that you have just made are processed by the MTA, including the post office location change, the link changes to. The status must show as before you finalize the migration.
