The Self Service Desktop Migrator component of Migrator for GroupWise is a program that can migrate a single user’s GroupWise server data, archives, personal address books and frequent contacts to a corresponding account on a Microsoft Exchange server, or to Outlook personal folder (.pst) files. All migrated messages retain their reply-ability, original date/time stamps, priority flags and other properties. The program converts GroupWise reminder notes to Outlook tasks, and converts personal address books and frequent contacts to Outlook contacts. GroupWise addresses in all migrated items are automatically converted to SMTP addresses (Internet format), so that all messaging functions — replying, forwarding and so forth — will continue to work correctly after the migration.
This User Guide provides instructions for running the Desktop Migrator. Each user must run this tool independently, from his or her own desktop. Follow the instructions provided by your mail administrator to choose configuration settings within this tool.
IMPORTANT: If the SSDM generates an error saying that the license key is invalid, ask your migration administrator if the license has recently been updated. When a Quest license key is updated, an admin must re-run Migrator for GroupWise's Directory Exporter to register the updated license with the SSDM.
The SSDM will access the GroupWise client in whatever mode the client was last run. To migrate from a cached mailbox, first log in to the GroupWise client in cached mailbox mode, then close the client and start MFG's SSDM.
Every screen in the SSDM offers an online search feature that opens a browser window to a Quest URL of online product resources, and relays a keyword search string to the URL to find pertinent information in Quest online documentation. To launch an online search:
The Self Service Desktop Migrator program can be pre-configured by an administrator to run with one or more pre-set entry values, and to skip the screens that ask you for those pre-set values. Some—or many—of the screens shown in this Guide therefore may not appear in a particular program run if your administrator has pre-configured the program to make one or more screen displays unnecessary.
