20: Select Destination Exchange Server

This screen appears only if the Migrate users option was marked on screen #2: Select Operations. Enter the information that will authorize (or forgo) the program’s connection to the Exchange server, and click Next.

Do not connect to an Exchange server: This feature makes possible the migration of data to Outlook personal folder (.pst) files prior to the setup of your Exchange server, but the checkbox is available only if none of your entries on earlier screens requires a connection to an Exchange server (for example, if the program is configured to create Exchange mailboxes, or to migrate data to server-based mailboxes, etc.) If you do forgo a connection to an Exchange server, attendees’ free/busy information will be unavailable in migrated calendar appointments.
Profile name: If the program will connect to an Exchange server, use this drop-down list box to specify the Admin profile created for the target Exchange environment. The designated profile must have Receive As rights.
Administrator user name: Exchange user name for the migration account configured with Receive As rights to the target mailboxes.
Administrator password: Password associated with the Administrator user name cited above.
Administrator user domain: Active Directory domain where the administrative account resides.

When you click Next, the program scans the associated user-list .csv file and compares that information to your program entries to see if it can identify any conflicts or other issues. If no problems are apparent, the program simply advances to the next screen (skip ahead to the next screen). But if it does find a problem, it notifies you in a dialog box.

Click the View button to see a .csv file listing of errors and warnings. The program will save the .csv file to your Quest admin directory by appending "‑error" to the same filename as your current user list.

Review the list, and decide whether to continue or abort the program run:

To continue the program run: In the User-list error dialog box, click OK to dismiss the dialog box and advance to the next screen.
To abort the program run: In the User-list error dialog box, click Cancel to dismiss the dialog box and return to the previous program screen. Then click the Cancel button to abort the program run.

21: Specify PST Output Root Directory

This screen appears only if you have selected, in screen #18: Specify Destinations for Migrated Data, to migrate one or more types of data to Outlook personal folders (.pst) files.

Select the preferred method and location for delivering any Outlook Personal Folders (.pst) files generated during the migration, and click Next.

Home directory of NetWare account: Places new.pst files in the home directories of users' accounts.
Directory specified in .csv file: Places new.pst files in the directory specified for each user in the .csv file, in the pstdir column. The pstdir column values must be in the user-list (.csv) file prior to this program run. (This option will appear grayed-out, as unavailable, if the user-list file does not contain a pstdir column.)
Subdirectories of root directory specified below: Places .pst files in subdirectories under this directory. This option creates a directory structure that matches the user's GroupWise post office hierarchy. For example, the location of the .pst file for a GroupWise user in the GWDOM domain and the MAILPO post office, with a userid of GWUSER, would be: GWDOM\MAILPO\GWUSER.pst.

Select a .pst file format, by Outlook version:

Use Outlook 97-2002 Personal Folders File (.pst): Tells the program to format the .pst files in this format, which supports up to 2GB of data.
Use Office Outlook Personal Folders file (.pst): Tells the program to format the .pst files in this format, which supports up to 20GB of data. This option requires that Outlook 2003 or later be installed on the migration machine. (The option will appear grayed-out, as an unavailable choice, if Outlook 2003 or later is not installed.)

22: Specify GroupWise Domain Path

This screen appears only if one or more of your choices on earlier screens will require an administrative login session to your GroupWise server.

Type your GroupWise Domain path into the text box, or use the Browse button to locate and specify your GroupWise Domain path, and click Next.

The GroupWise Domain path is the file system path to your GroupWise domain file wpdomain.db. If necessary you can find this path by using the NetWare Administrator program, NWAdmin or ConsoleOne: From the Tools menu, select GroupWise System Operations ..., and then in the dialog box click System Connection. The System Connection dialog box then displays a list of GroupWise domains; the one labeled as the primary domain (format \\NWSERVER\SYS\MAIL\GWDOM) is the value you need to enter for the GroupWise Domain path in this screen.

22: Office 365 Mail Settings

This screen appears only if you are migrating to an Office 365 target—either with or without the Microsoft DirSync. Enter the information the program will need to connect as an administrator to your Office 365 admin account.

Profile name: The Outlook profile associated with the admin account that is running the Batch Migrator. Note that this profile must have Receive As rights.
Administrator user name: The User Name portion of the Office 365 access credentials for the admin account running the Batch Migrator.
Administrator password: The Password portion of the Office 365 access credentials for the admin account running the Batch Migrator.
Office 365 user domain: The Office 365 domain that should be used to compose users’ Microsoft Online Services ID (logon names and email addresses) in Office 365. The Office 365 user domain selected here will be the portion of each user’s email address that follows the @ symbol. The list options are collected online from Office 365, so there may be some delay in populating the full list.

These other checkboxes may or may not appear on this screen, depending on how you have configured the Admin-Driven Batch Migrator in earlier screens.

Appears if you are migrating users in this program run:

[  ] Use admin account pool: Mark this checkbox if you want Migrator for GroupWise to use your Admin Account Pool to migrate data. Next to this checkbox are two buttons that will run the Admin Account Pool Utility by either of two options:
Manage (button): Launches Migrator for GroupWise’s Admin Account Pool utility.
Reset (button): Used to reset the pool, this button launches Migrator for GroupWise’s Admin Account Pool utility, and then automatically deletes all admin accounts from the pool and exits.

Appears only if you have selected only non-provisioning functions for this program run:

 ] Validate target mailboxes exist before proceeding: Tells the program to verify the existence of target mailboxes for the designated user list before trying to apply the selected features to these users.

Appears if you have selected G-to-E mail forwarding, and have selected (in the Specify Source-to-Target Mail Forwarding Domain screen) a csv field other than targetAddress to use for forwarding:

 ] Validate mail-forwarding addresses: Tells the program to validate the non-targetAddress forwarding address before setting the forwarding rule.

The program may or may not be configured (as described below) to also show these two checkboxes:

Resolve attendees for server mail: Determines whether the program will look up SMTP addresses in server mail in the Exchange GAL, to get Exchange addresses—so free-busy lookups will succeed.
Resolve attendees for archive mail: Determines whether the program will look up SMTP addresses in user archives in the Exchange GAL, to get Exchange addresses—so free-busy lookups will succeed.

These Resolve attendees features are enabled by default (as if the checkboxes were marked), but the checkbox controls do not appear in the screen by default. To make them appear in the screen, set ShowResolveAttendeesOpt=1 in the [Exchange] section of gwmigapp.ini. You can disable either or both features by unmarking the checkboxes—for example, if you want to migrate to PST files without connecting to the Exchange server.
