How to upgrading Notes Migrator from 4.6.3 and higher.
Perform the following steps to upgrade your existing farm.
- Run an in-place upgrade on the controller by clicking the "Notes Migrator Setup XX.XX. This will upgrade
the controller machine. Ensure that there are no migrations running during this process.
Note! Make sure to make a backup copy of your Notes Migrator SQL database. This can be done
through the SQL Management Studio by right clicking the database and selecting Tasks |
Make a design template of the "Notes Migrator.nsf" which will be located in C:\Program Files\Binary
Tree\CMT for Exchange\Notes Tools after the upgrade. This can be accomplished by:
a. Double clicking on the Notes Migrator.nsf file located in the C:\Program Files\Binary Tree\CMT for
Exchange\Notes Tools on the controller machine.
b. This will load the notes client and open the database on the controller. From the Notes client
menu choose File/Application/New copy. The file copy dialog window will open. Make a copy of
the database giving it a "NTF" extension instead of a "NSF"extension.
c. Open your Notes Migrator database on your domino server. With the file open, choose from the
Notes client menu, File/Application/Design Replace. The design template dialog will open, choose
your newly created template from the list of templates and hit ok.
d. Sign the Notes Migrator database with your current Notes ID, this on the Progress Summary page.
Note! Make sure to make a backup copy of your Notes Migrator database on the domino server for
safety purposes. This can be a Notes copy of the .nsf database to the Local Notes workstation.
The workers will automatically upgrade. The workers check in with the controller and when the worker
finds it’s at a lower release then the controller, it will automatically upgrade itself by automatically running
the Notes Migrator Worker XX.XX MSI.
Note! The existing status for all migration accounts will be retained including the migration system
Upgrading from 4.6.X
The process is the same as above except step 3. You must manually run the Notes Migrator Worker XX.XX.msi on
all workers to upgrade to the latest software.
