Changing the Directory Server for the Domain

At a later date, for performance reasons, you might want to change the directory server that is used to create the connection to the Domino domain.


Connecting to a Notes Migrator Database

Certain reports can be used to assess the progress of a Notes to Exchange migration. By connecting to a Notes Migrator for Exchange database, you can view data in the following “real-time” reports:

You can connect to a Notes Migrator database that is on the same SQL instance as the MessageStats database, or to a remote Notes Migrator database on a different SQL server.

If you connect to a remote database, you must use SQL authentication to create a linked server connection.

Expand the Lotus and IBM Notes node and select Notes Migrator Databases in the treeview.
IMPORTANT: The Windows account that is used to run the MessageStats console must be a member of the SQL setupadmin fixed server role on the remote SQL server that hosts the MessageStats database. Only members of the setupadmin fixed server role have sufficient rights to create a linked server
Click Test Connection to verify that the connection can be established.
Click Save.

If you create a connection to a Notes Migrator database that is on a different SQL instance than the MessageStats database, you must create the connection using SQL authentication.

At a later date, you can modify the credentials. For example, if the password for the SQL account has changed, you can modify the password used for the connection.

Right-click and select Edit SQL Authentication Properties.
Click Save.

MessageStats Reports Node

This node launches the MessageStats Reports component in the right pane. The reports node accesses the separate web-based reporting component that is hosted on an IIS server.

Before you create your task gathering, you must set up a connection to each of the Domino database instances from which you want to gather information.

Task Execution Servers Node

The Task Execution Servers node contains the servers on which you have installed task processors. In a complete installation, task processors are installed on the same server as the MessageStats scheduler server and the MMC client console.

Tasks that consume resources can be run on a dedicated Task Execution Server. You can create additional Task Execution Servers through a distributed installation. In a distributed installation, you can install task processors on additional servers to spread the gathering load.

Through the Task Execution Servers node, you can set properties for specific task execution servers. You can change the default task execution server, identify a path location to which the task log files are written, specify parameters for task logging activities, and set the number of task processors that can run concurrently. To gather information for the reports, the task processors must access the databases on the Domino server.

For more information about setting properties for a task execution server, see the MessageStats Administrator Guide.
