How do I add or edit program parameters?

The parameters for the Self-Service Desktop Migrator are saved and may be edited in a text file, notesdtapp.ini, which resides in the same path with the Desktop Migrator application. All other Migrator for Notes to Exchange parameters are for the administrator components, and these parameters exist in two forms:

Task Parameters: Settings that apply to the operations of only single particular tasks.
Global Defaults: Values that constitute the initial Task Parameters (as defined above) when a task is created, unless and until the Task Parameters are edited.

The Notes Migration Manager maintains the Global Defaults in the SQL database, and permits editing Global Defaults to suit local circumstances and preferences. Each time a wizard creates a task, the wizard copies the parameters from the Global Defaults to the task definition, where they become Task Parameters. The Task Parameters may then be edited separately for each particular task.

Global Defaults, Task Parameters, and the parameters within notesdtapp.ini are all edited the same way, as if all three sets of parameters were stored in an INI file. The features that let you edit Global Defaults and Task Parameters copy the current parameter settings from the SQL database into a text document in Windows' Notepad, so you can use Notepad's text-editing features to change parameter values or add new parameter specifications. The full procedures are described separately below. Since notesdtapp.ini is an INI text file, you can use Notepad or any other text editor to edit its contents.

How to add or edit Global Defaults

Within Notes Migration Manager:

Select File | Global Default Settings.

Notes Migration Manager will then copy the new parameter value(s) back into the SQL database.

How to add or edit Task Parameters

In Notes Migration Manager, make sure this feature is enabled: On the View menu, make sure the Advanced Settings option is marked. This is a toggle setting that determines whether the wizards will let you open and edit Task Parameters. If the feature is enabled, an extra screen titled "Customize Configuration" will appear at the start of the screen sequence for each Wizard.

From the Customize Configuration screen in any of the wizards:

Click the Edit button. The wizard then opens the task's configuration settings into Windows Notepad. Within Notepad, the settings look like the contents of an INI file, but they are saved as a part of the SQL database rather than as an independent INI file.

Notes Migration Manager will then copy the new parameter value(s) back into the SQL database.

How do I migrate from a Notes environment with Symantec E-Vault?

When migrating from a Notes environment with Symantec E-Vault, Exchange propagation issues may ifere with Migrator for Notes to Exchange setting custom attributes when the destination mailbox has never been accessed either by Outlook or by the migration application. One simple work-around would be to first run a "dummy" migration (e.g., use a date filter where date > 1/1/2100) to open all the target mailboxes before running the real migration.
