Can MessageStats Migration Reports be used with Migration Manager for Exchange or Migration Manager for Active Directory?
No MessageStats Migration does not work with Migration Manager for Exchange or Migration Manager for Active Directory. The MessageStats Reports only work with the Migration Wizard.
In MessageStats a set of Mailbox Migration Reports were added to the product. These new reports were built specifically to allow MessageStats to be used alongside Exchange Migration Wizard (EMW) during a migration.
The feature is designed to leverage the mailbox information that is already gathered in MessageStats. Since EMW uses Custom Attribute 13 to link a migrated mailbox to the source object, the MessageStats Mailbox Migration Progress report was built to link mailboxes where Custom Attribute 13 is the same.
The MessageStats Mailbox Migration reporting functionality does not allow the user to configure which Custom Attribute is used by the report. Products such as Migration Manager for Exchange and Migration Manager for Active Directory use Custom Attribute 15, and cannot use the MessageStats Mailbox Migration reporting functionality.
In order for these reports to populate, you must be doing a default gathering at the Organization Level of both Exchange Organizations. To do this, there must be a two-way trust enabled between domains, the account running the gatherings needs to have Full Domain Admin rights and Exchange Admin rights, Local Admin rights to the MessageStats Server and Act as part of the operating system under the local policies of the MessageStats Server.
