Viewing the Agent Log

The log for an agent can be shown below the agent list. Select an agent, and use the Show Log Panel/Hide Log Panel and Refresh Log commands in the Actions panel.

If you want the log to be refreshed automatically, open the Options dialog box (Tools | Options in the main menu) and configure the settings on the Agent Manager Options page. The same page lets you configure other log panel options, such as word wrapping and automatic scrolling.

Filtering Agents by Job and Collection

To manage the agents relevant to a specific job or collection, select the job or collection node in the management tree view, click Agent Manager in the toolbar, and use the console layout that opens in the right pane. This layout is identical to the one available from the Agent Management node, except the following differences:

  • The agent host list shows only those hosts that are involved in the selected job.
  • The agent list (under the agent host list) shows only those agents that are relevant to the job.

If you want to find out what other agents are installed on an agent host in the list, see the Installed Agents column, which shows the abbreviated types of all agents installed on the host.

Specifying the License Server

Migration Manager for Exchange uses a distributed architecture. The agents obtain all license information from a single license server that you can specify in the License page of the Options dialog box. By default a server on which Migration Manager is installed is used as the license server.

Caution: The Remote Registry service must be started on the license server.

Migration Process

This section describes the concepts and the technical procedures that are involved in the Exchange migration process.

Migration Manager for Exchange allows administrators to migrate user mailboxes, public folders, and other Exchange data from one Exchange organization to another in a way that is transparent to the end-users and does not impact user productivity. In addition, Migration Manager for Exchange allows migrating user mailboxes and public folders from an on-premises Exchange organization to Microsoft Office 365. For more details, see the Migrating to Microsoft Office 365 document.
