All the options that you specify in the Add Calendar Synchronization Job Wizard and the Add Calendar Collection Wizard are later available in the calendar collection’s Properties dialog box, along with some additional options available only in that dialog. These options are described in the related topics. To view or modify any of a collection’s settings, right-click the collection in the management tree and click Properties on the shortcut menu.
In addition to the options you specify in the Add Calendar Collection Wizard, you can specify the target mailbox store for the mailboxes of the collection. If there will have been no target mailboxes corresponding to the mailboxes of the collection by the time the Calendar Synchronization Agent will start processing these mailboxes, it will create the mailboxes in the mailbox store you specify for the collection.
If any errors occurred during the mailbox synchronization and you need to fully or partially re-copy the data that has already been sent to the target server, select the appropriate resynchronization option. You can:
You can also remove the synchronization settings directly from the agents’ databases if for some reasons the resynchronization settings were not cleared after the resynchronization was performed.
After you modify any of the collection’s settings, the job is marked with an exclamation mark that means that you need to update the mailbox synchronization agents’ databases. Right-click the job in the management tree and click the Commit Changes on the shortcut menu to update the agent’s task lists on the remote servers.
To set the scheduling, logging, and other options for the Calendar Synchronization Agent, right-click the node of the server where the agent is installed under the Calendar Synchronization node, select Properties from the shortcut menu, and select the Agent node in the dialog box that appears.
It is strongly recommended that you set all the options before you start the migration.
The General page of the Calendar Synchronization Agent allows you to view and modify the following agent’s settings:
Caution: If you change the value of the Copy message not older than option, the new value is applied only after the agent is restarted. In addition, if the new value is greater than the old value, you need to perform full resynchronization. If the new value is less, then resynchronization is not needed.
Every Migration Manager agent saves its logs on the server on which the agent is installed. For each agent you can specify whether the log file will be overwritten or appended during each session, and select which events will be written to the text log and Exchange server application log files.
For each server where the Calendar Synchronization Agent is installed, you can define when the agent is allowed to put additional stress on the Exchange servers and on the network. You can specify:
If some users with mailboxes are created on the target and you need these users to be visible on the source, perform the following steps:
The one-way synchronization is enough for this scenario. For more details about two-way synchronization for calendar items, refer the Adding a Calendar Collection section, Step 3. Select Collection Members of this guide.
If an Exchange 2010 organization is involved in the mailbox migration process, consider that in Exchange 2010 all mailbox communications flow via Client Access Servers (CAS) instead of Mailbox Servers as in previous versions of Exchange. Therefore Migration Manager for Exchange agents use CAS for mailbox and calendar processing.
