Managing the Admin Account Pool

Use the Admin Account Pool Utility to manage your account pool. This allows you to view the accounts in the pool, change the common password for all admin accounts in the pool, and/or change the number of accounts in the pool.

To start the Admin Account Pool Utility:

Click the Manage or Reset button on the Admin-Driven Batch Migrator’s Office 365 Mail Settings screen.
The Reset button launches the utility with instructions to delete all admin accounts from the pool and exit.
Run the program file (AdminAcctPool.exe) independently.

The Admin Account Pool Utility contains a single screen titled Manage Migration Admin Account Pool. This screen features a list of all admin pool accounts that are registered in the Migrator for GroupWise’s database. Every time the program is started, it automatically uses remote PowerShell to scan Office 365, to synchronize Migrator for GroupWise’s list of accounts with Office 365’s list.

The Manage Migration Admin Account Pool screen reports these values:

Password: The password assigned to all pooled admin accounts. This password can be changed by entering a new password.
Current pool size: The current number of admin accounts in the pool.
New pool size: Specify the number of admin accounts to include in the account pool.
Account: The user the admin account is currently being used to migrate.
Current Owner: The owner of the admin account.
Allocate Time: The time when the admin account was allocated for use by its current owner.
Use Count: The number of times the admin account has been used.

And the screen offers these command buttons:

Refresh: Refreshes the Current Owner, Allocate Time and Use Count information for all admin pool accounts registered in the Migrator for GroupWise installation folder. These values change as migrations allocate, use and release admin pool accounts, but you can always get the current values by clicking Refresh.
Synchronize: Refreshes the list of admin pool accounts registered in the Migrator for GroupWise installation folder by scanning O365 using remote PowerShell. The admin pool accounts are all members of a special Role Group called GroupWise Migrator Admins Role Group in O365. The Manage Migration Admin Account Pool utility automatically performs a synchronize operation each time it is launched to ensure that the list of admin pool accounts registered in the Migrator for GroupWise installation folder is up to date. (This is the same synchronization feature the utility performs each time you start the program, as noted above.)
Apply: Adds or removes accounts as needed to achieve the size specified in the New pool size control, and updates the passwords of all accounts to the value in the Password textbox. It then automatically performs a synchronize and refresh to ensure that the list of registered accounts is up to date.
Close: Closes the application.

While any of these operations is in progress, the status bar (bottom of the screen) displays progress information, and the Close button temporarily changes to a Cancel button (to cancel the current process).

The Admin Account Pool Utility will autodiscover the information it needs to create Outlook profiles on the fly for the multiple admin accounts you have configured in the Utility as described above.

Discovery utility

About Discovery utility

Discovery.exe is a pre-migration discovery tool that collects mailbox and archive information. This information is written to a csv file, and can be used to plan a migration. The Migrator for GroupWise installer puts Discovery.exe in this default directory:

... for a 32-bit OS, or in C:\Program Files (x86)\Quest\... for a 64-bit OS.

Command-line switches

Command-line switches for Discovery.exe let you specify the types of information you want to capture, where you want it to be saved, and other program run options:

-v [version]: The version for current auditing. The default is 1.
-a [path]: Gather the archive data to an automatically generated CSV file in the %TEMP% folder if no file path is specified.
-m [path]: Gather the audit mailbox data to an automatically generated CSV file in the %TEMP% folder if no file path is specified.
-s [path]: Gather shared folders data to an automatically generated CSV file in the %TEMP% folder if no file path is specified.
-p [path]: Gather proxy rights data to an automatically generated CSV file in the %TEMP% folder if no file path is specified.
-l [path]: The log file location. The default is put into the %TEMP%\Pre-migration Discovery folder.
-t [time]: The timeout (in seconds) to wait for GroupWise client to launch. The default is 36000.
-d [delay]: The delay (in seconds) to wait for GroupWise client to launch. The default is 15.
-f: [force]: Force auditing the specified type of users.

Discovery.exe needs at least one of these options to be specified: -a, -m, -s, or -p. The others are optional. If you specified a path during auditing, Discovery.exe audits the specified audit type (-a, -m, -s or -p) only one time. This is controlled by the Registry items.

1
Use -v [version]. The version number should be greater than last version. See the sample login script below:
2
Use -f: [force] to force auditing the specified type of users. See the sample script below:

If auditing or exported data to %TEMP%, Discovery.exe will audit the specified audit type (-a, -m, -s or -p) once the users log in to the Novell client and GroupWise client.

2
Modify the network system login script (or the login scripts of selected users) to run Discovery.exe with the desired options. See the sample login scripts below:
The folder \\127.0.0.1\Pre-Migration Discovery should be shared to EveryOne with a minimum of Read and Right permission.
The folder \\127.0.0.1\SharedFiles should be shared to EveryOne with Read and Write permission.
3
On the Windows terminal, log in to the Novell client. Discovery.exe will be running in the background. After the user has logged in to the GroupWise client, the specified CSV file is generated after a period of time that depends on the amount of data. Discovery.exe exits automatically.

After completing the procedure above, Discovery.exe runs automatically when the end users logon Novell system with the login script configured by ConsoleOne.

The logon script is:
