The Getting Started section of the Migrator for Notes to Exchange Quick-Start Guide explains how to install the product. The topics that follow here describe several configuration tasks that must be performed as part of MNE configuration before the first run of any wizard. (Some are optional and apply only in particular circumstances, as noted.)
IMPORTANT: Any antivirus software on the admin workstation must be configured to not scan the Quest program files directory or %temp% directory. You can turn off the antivirus software before running any Quest application and turn it on again after the program runs. Migrator for Notes to Exchange program calls will not succeed if an antivirus scan tries to “clean” an Migrator for Notes to Exchange temporary file that it misinterprets as a threat.
Most features and wizards of Migrator for Notes to Exchange require access to information stored in a central database on the SQL server. Most also require access to the Notes server, the Exchange server, Active Directory, and the Shared Directories that contain the Self-Service Desktop Migrator and its log and status files, and application log files. The features and wizards need to know the names, locations, configuration options, access credentials and so forth for the various servers.
Enter the Default Settings now into the Notes Migration Manager (the MNE console) before other program components are used so that the information will be available to them and need not be entered again. If the information is not entered now, upon installation, the features and wizards will prompt for the values as needed, and most of them will have to be entered more than once—reentered for each feature and wizard that needs them.
NOTE: Quest recommends you visit all five of the Edit Default Settings screens in the Notes Migration Manager now to enter this information. The Notes Migration Manager is described in chapter 1 of the Migrator for Notes to Exchange Administration Guide.
The Migrator for Notes to Exchange tasks (program runs) are defined by wizards, most which let you schedule tasks to run at particular times on particular days. The Manage Scheduled Operations screen in Notes Migration Manager lets you revise these task-execution schedules. But the wizards and Manage Scheduled Operations screen manage only the scheduling of task runs as these schedules are saved in the SQL database, and a “scheduled” task does not execute by itself. Tasks are executed by the MNE Task Scheduler utility as described in this section.
Scheduled tasks are executed using a separate command-line application called the Migrator for Notes to Exchange Task Scheduler (qsched.exe) which is located in the installation directory. The program regularly checks the SQL database to see whether any tasks have been scheduled to run since the last check, and executes the tasks at their scheduled times.
The task scheduler runs as a Windows service and is automatically installed when you install Migrator for Notes to Exchange. You can manage the task scheduler as you would any other Windows service using the Windows Service Manager. Instructions for configuring a Windows service can be found at:
For information about configuring and using the task scheduler, see the section titled “Using the Qsched.exe task-scheduling utility” in the Migrator for Notes to Exchange Administration Guide.
The Data Migration Wizard reads a mandatory program parameter to get the two-character Usage Location code that Microsoft requires for its Office 365 licenses (per ). Set this value, in Migrator for Notes to Exchange Global Defaults or Task Parameters before you try to License users:
