Creating Administrator Mailboxes for Public Folder and Free/Busy Synchronization

Administrator mailboxes should be created on all Exchange servers involved in public folder and free/busy synchronization. These mailboxes will be used to access the public folder tree and the Schedule+ Free/Busy folder when creating public folder and free/busy synchronization jobs.

The administrative mailbox selected for public folder synchronization should reside in a private mailbox database located on the same server as the public folder database. The mailbox database should be also associated with that public folder database. To set this association, in Exchange Management Console open properties of the mailbox database and specify the public database as Default public folder database on the Client Settings tab.

Caution:

  • The administrator mailbox specified for the synchronization job should not be changed during the synchronization process.
  • The administrator mailboxes should not be included in mailbox or calendar synchronization jobs.

Creating Administrator Mailboxes for Mailbox and Calendar Synchronization (Optional)

Mailbox and calendar synchronization agents access the migrated mailboxes via the administrator mailbox. By default, the Microsoft System Attendant mailbox is used as the administrator mailbox on Exchange 2007 servers. However, in some cases it is necessary to create custom administrator mailboxes and use them instead of the Microsoft System Attendant mailbox.

Installing Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Client and Collaboration Data Objects 1.2.1

Installing the Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Client and Collaboration Data Objects 1.2.1

Migration Manager needs version 6.5.8353.0 or later of Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Client and Collaboration Data Objects 1.2.1 to be installed on the computers where Migration Manager agents will run (that is, Exchange 2007 and 2010 Servers and agent hosts only).

Since the MAPI CDO setup package is not available for distribution, you should download it from the Microsoft Web site. At the moment of the last document update, the download link is http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42040.

After installing the API, restart the computer.

Specifying displayName Value for Source Exchange 2007 Mailbox Database Objects

Specifying displayName Value for Source Exchange 2007 Mailbox Database Objects

Mailbox databases in Exchange 2007 organizations are created with blank displayName parameters. As a result, some agents may stop working. To resolve this issue, you have to specify the displayName values for the source Exchange 2007 mailbox databases. You can do it either manually, as described below, or using the SetStoreDisplayName.js script located in the QMMEx Reskit\Scripts folder on the Migration Manager for Exchange Installation CD. You must run the script after you install Migration Manager for Exchange.

To specify the displayName value for the source Exchange 2007 mailbox database objects

  1. Launch the ADSIEdit utility from the Windows Support Tools: click Start | Run and type in ADSIEdit.msc. Click OK.

    NOTE: If you have Windows 2003 domain controller the ADSIEdit utility, which is part of the Windows 2003 Support Tools may not be installed. In this case install the Support Tools by running the Support\Tools\Suptools.msi file located on the Windows 2003 CD.

  2. In the ADSIEdit snap-in, browse to the container named

    CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT),
    CN=Administrative Groups,CN=<ExchangeOrganizationName>,
    CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,
    DC=<…>,DC=<…>
  3. For each Exchange 2007 server involved on the migration steps, open the container named

    CN=<StorageGroup>,CN=InformationStore,CN=<ServerName>,
    CN=Servers,CN=Exchange Administrative Group (FYDIBOHF23SPDLT),
    CN=Administrative Groups,CN=<ExchangeOrganizationName>,
    CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,
    DC=<…>,DC=<…>
  4. Then, for each mailbox database, right-click the database object and select Properties from the shortcut menu.
  5. On the Attribute Editor tab, copy the adminDisplayName attribute value to the displayName attribute value and click OK.
  6. Click OK to apply the settings and close the dialog box.
