Migrator for GroupWise 4.7 - Program Parameters Reference Guide

Introduction Parameters for Administrator Components Parameters for the SSDM

gwdtapp.ini [GroupWise] section

gwdtapp.ini [GroupWise] CommandLine=<alphanum>
gwdtapp.ini [GroupWise] DebugFolder=<FolderName>
This parameter corresponds to a GUI element in the Directory Exporter: the GroupWise Soap Server URL field in the GroupWise System Information screen. The value specifies the location of the GroupWise SOAP web service. This parameter is optional, but will help resolve a duplicate-meetings issue that can occur in some scenarios in some environments where Quest CMG coexistence product is also deployed. When a GroupWise user creates a meeting in GroupWise, and then changes it (or changes one instance of a recurring series) after he/she is migrated, the invitees' calendars may show duplicate instances unless the SOAP service is enabled and its URL is specified. This solution works only for GroupWise 8 and later (not for GroupWise 7).
gwdtapp.ini [GroupWise] MigrateDocRefs=<#>
Tells the program whether to migrate documents and document references, as attachments. By default (MigrateDocRefs=0), documents and document references do not migrate.
gwdtapp.ini [GroupWise] MigrateEmptyFolders=<#>
Tells the program whether to migrate empty folders. By default (MigrateEmptyFolders=1), the program will migrate all folders regardless of whether they contain any items. Note: The migration program will not migrate ACLs if MigrateEmptyFolders=0.
gwdtapp.ini [GroupWise] MigrateNotesAs=<#>
If MigrateNotesAs=2, the program looks at the due-date property to determine whether it is an all-day event (if the due-date property is set to 0), or a task (if the due-date property is set to anything other than 0).
gwdtapp.ini [GroupWise] MigrateSharedFolders=<#>
Tells the program to migrate an independent copy of each shared folder to each user to whom the source folder was shared (MigrateSharedFolders=1), or migrate only a single copy of each shared folder to the user who owned it in GroupWise, and set ACL permissions on that folder for other users to whom the GroupWise folder was shared (0).
gwdtapp.ini [GroupWise] MigrateSharedPABs=<#>
Tells the program to migrate an independent copy of each shared PAB to each user to whom the source PAB was shared (MigrateSharedPABs=1), or migrate only a single copy of each shared PAB to the user who owned it in GroupWise, and set ACL permissions on that PAB for other users to whom the GroupWise PAB was shared (0).
Specifies the highest message number you want to migrate (if you want to migrate only messages up to and including a particular message number). For example, MsgIdxEnd=6108 tells the program to migrate messages up to and including index #6108. To migrate all messages up to the latest, simply omit this parameter from the INI file. Valid values are integers from 0 up to the number of messages in the message store.
gwdtapp.ini [GroupWise] MsgIdxStart=<###>
Specifies the lowest message number you want to migrate (if you want to migrate only messages with message numbers equal to or higher than a particular value). For example, MsgIdxEnd=1421 tells the program to migrate only messages with index #1421 or higher. To migrate all messages up to the latest, simply omit this parameter from the INI file. Valid values are integers from 0 up to the number of messages in the message store. This parameter can be helpful if the program crashes unexpectedly and you want to resume the migration after the message that caused the crash. To migrate all messages beginning with the earliest, omit this parameter from the INI file.
gwdtapp.ini [GroupWise] PabsToIgnore=<PABName>
gwdtapp.ini [GroupWise] ProxyAccountRights=<#>
Tells the program whether to migrate users' proxy rights along with the users' other account information. For example, ProxyAccountRights=1 tells the program to migrate proxy rights. Prior to version 3.1, the program migrated proxy rights by default. As of version 3.1, the default is to not migrate proxy rights (ProxyAccountRights=0).
Tells the program whether to try to count messages by folder (SkipCountBy­Folder=0), or instead just count all messages (1). If SkipCountByFolder=0 the program counts by folder and then by message to work around a bug in the GroupWise API that limits the folder count to 8191 messages. If a folder contains more than 8191 messages, then the program will automatically switch methods. If the program crashes when estimating the number of messages to be migrated, setting SkipCountByFolder=1 will probably preempt the crash.

gwdtapp.ini [PAB] section

gwdtapp.ini [PAB] MakeDefault=<#>
Tells the program whether to make the migrated Contacts folder the default address book (MakeDefault=1). The default (0) leaves this option disabled.
gwdtapp.ini [PAB] ShowFirst=<#>

gwdtapp.ini [Screens] section

See the SSDM chapter of the MFG Scenarios Guide for an explanation of how these parameters relate to one another to customize the SSDM.

gwdtapp.ini [Screens] Finished=<alphanum>
Determines whether, or under what circumstances, the Migration Report screen (the Finished screen) will appear in program runs. Valid values are show (screen appears in every run), skip (screen appears only if the information it ordinarily obtains from the user cannot be otherwise obtained or inferred), or silent (screen never appears in any run). For example, Finished=skip tells the program to display the Finished screen only if the program encounters errors during the run, which would require a decision as to whether to view the Error Log Report.
gwdtapp.ini [Screens] MigrateWhat=<alphanum>
Determines whether, or under what circumstances, the Specify Data for Migration screen will appear in program runs.Valid values are show (screen appears in every run), skip (screen appears only if the information it ordinarily obtains from the user cannot be otherwise obtained or inferred), or silent (screen never appears in any run). For example, MigrateWhat=skip tells the program to display the screen only if the information it collects cannot be determined by other entries or the operating environment.
gwdtapp.ini [Screens] Profile=<alphanum>
Determines whether, or under what circumstances, the Select Profile screen will appear in program runs. Valid values are show (screen appears in every run), skip (screen appears only if the information it ordinarily obtains from the user cannot be otherwise obtained or inferred), or silent (screen never appears in any run). For example, Profile=skip tells the program to display the Select Profile screen only if the information it collects cannot be determined by other entries or the operating environment.
gwdtapp.ini [Screens] Progress=<alphanum>
Determines whether, or under what circumstances, the Migrating Data screen (the "Progress" screen) will appear in program runs. Valid values are show (screen appears in every run), skip (screen appears only if the information it ordinarily obtains from the user cannot be otherwise obtained or inferred), or silent (screen never appears in any run) — but since this screen does not collect any information, the skip and silent options are equivalent. For example, Progress=skip tells the program to display the Migrating Data screen only if the information it collects cannot be determined by other entries or the operating environment — so this screen will never appear in any program run.
gwdtapp.ini [Screens] PstDir=<alphanum>
Determines whether, or under what circumstances, the Specify Directory for Migrated Archive screen will appear in program runs. Valid values are show (screen appears in every run), skip (screen appears only if the information it ordinarily obtains from the user cannot be otherwise obtained or inferred), or silent (screen never appears in any run). For example, PstDir=skip tells the program to display the screen only if the information it collects cannot be determined by other entries or the operating environment.
gwdtapp.ini [Screens] Summary=<alphanum>
Determines whether, or under what circumstances, the Selection Summary screen will appear in program runs. Valid values are show (screen appears in every run), skip (screen appears only if the information it ordinarily obtains from the user cannot be otherwise obtained or inferred), or silent (screen never appears in any run) — but since this screen does not collect any information, the skip and silent options are equivalent. For example, Summary=skip tells the program to display the Summary screen only if the information it collects cannot be determined by other entries or the operating environment — so this screen will never appear in any program run.
gwdtapp.ini [Screens] Welcome=<alphanum>
Determines whether, or under what circumstances, the Welcome screen will appear in program runs. Valid values are show (screen appears in every run), skip (screen appears only if the information it ordinarily obtains from the user cannot be otherwise obtained or inferred), or silent (screen never appears in any run) — but since this screen does not collect any information, the skip and silent options are equivalent. For example, Welcome=skip tells the program to display the Welcome screen only if the information it collects cannot be determined by other entries or the operating environment — so this screen will never appear in any program run.

gwdtapp.ini [ServerData] section

gwdtapp.ini [ServerData] MigrateJunkFolder=<#>
Determines whether the program will migrate the contents of the server junk mail folder. MigrateJunkFolder=0 tells the program to not migrate the junk folder. By default (MigrateJunkFolder=1), the junk folder will be migrated.
gwdtapp.ini [ServerData] MigrateCalData=<#>
Determines whether the program will migrate server calendar data. MigrateCalData=0 tells the program to not migrate server calendar data. By default (MigrateCalData=1), the program will migrate server calendar data.
gwdtapp.ini [ServerData] MigrateTrashFolder=<#>
Tells the program whether to migrate the server trash folder when the Specify Data for Migration screen does not appear, or sets the associated checkbox in that screen to be marked by default. MigrateTrashFolder=0 tells the program to not migrate the server trash folder, or sets the associated checkbox to be unmarked by default. The most common use of this parameter is to provide the necessary entry value when the program is configured to hide the Specify Data screen. The SSDM chapter of the MFG Scenarios Guide (see Customizing the SSDM) explains how this parameter relates to other parameters used to customize the SSDM.
