Client Profile Updating Utility 5.8 - Administrator Guide

Multiple Exchange Account Processing

CPUU can switch profiles that contain multiple Exchange accounts, but only the primary Exchange accounts are always switched. The primary Exchange account is an account that was first added to the profile (the primary account is not the same as the default account). See Advanced Tuning step of Typical Scenario.

Working with On Demand Migration for Email

CPUU supports updating Outlook profiles for users whose mailboxes have been migrated using On Demand Migration for Email. For detailed information how to configure and use CPUU for this scenario and which limitations apply, see Updating Outlook Client Profiles in the On Demand Migration for Email User Guide.

What the Utility Updates

The Client Profile Updating Utility updates the profile settings, and also finalizes the mailbox migration by migrating additional features of user mailboxes.

Important: If you use CPUU with On Demand Migration for Email, review Working with On Demand Migration for Email for the list of supported features and other information.

Additional features are specific custom settings of a particular user mailbox and its environment. Additional features include sets of services, groups of settings, Microsoft Outlook controls, and links to the mailbox objects, public folders, Global Address List, and so on.

Specifically, while updating a profile, the utility also updates the following additional features:

Important:
For the Favorites, Calendar, Contacts, Tasks, Notes and Journal features note the following:

  • To process shared folders of other users in a profile, accounts under which CPUU connects to source and target mailboxes must have the Full Access permission on every mailbox in the source and target organizations, respectively.
  • To have shared folder contents available after switch, ensure that Autodiscover is configured for the target user.

Modes

The Client Profile Updating Utility can work in the following modes:

  • Update Microsoft Outlook profiles
  • Roll back changes made by CPUU to the Microsoft Outlook profiles
  • Clean up information saved by CPUU during update

The Client Profile Updating Utility Configuration wizard can create three batch files and one configuration file:

  • CPUU_Update.bat to update all or specified Microsoft Outlook profiles
  • CPUU_Rollback.bat to roll back changes made by CPUU for all or specified Microsoft Outlook profiles
  • CPUU_Cleanup.bat to clean up information saved by CPUU during update
  • CPUU.ini

All batch files contain commands that launch Client Profile Updating Utility in corresponding mode, and a specific script that detects whether Microsoft Outlook is 32-bit or 64-bit.

Running CPUU from the command line

You can run CPUU in particular mode from the command line using the appropriate command-line parameters. For details, see the CPUU Parameters topic.
