Migrator for Notes to Exchange 4.16.1 - SSDM User Guide

Select Mailbox

The Select Mailbox screen usually appears only if the program finds more than one mailbox within the selected Outlook profile. If more than one mailbox is found, this screen lets you specify the mailbox that you want to receive your migrated items.

Specify Directory for Migrated Archive

This screen appears only if you indicated that you want to migrate your Notes archive. The screen prompts you for a directory in which the archive is to be placed when it is migrated.

Click Next to specify the displayed Outlook Default Directory unless your administrator has told you to use some other directory.

Selection Summary

This screen shows the options you have chosen for this program run. To change any of these values, click Back to return to any screens. Click Next to return to this screen. When the options shown describe what you want to accomplish, click Next to start the migration.

Validations for User ID, scheduled "window" and usage volume

Your migration administrator can control when you and your coworkers can run the SSDM to avoid processing bottlenecks that might occur if too many users try to run the SSDM at the same time. When you click Next on the Selection Summary screen, the program checks to validate the following information:

Your User ID: If your User ID is not in the database of migrating users, the SSDM posts an error message and does not run.
Your migration "window": Your migration administrator might schedule a window of time on a particular date that you and other users in your migration group are eligible to migrate. If you try to run the SSDM before or after your migration window, or if you or your migration group are not scheduled to migrate, the SSDM posts an error message and does not run. If you are early for your migration window, the program can be configured to offer either or both of the following two options:
Schedule Reminder: The program closes the SSDM and reminds you to run it again at the start of your window.
Enter Queue: The program "parks" the SSDM until your window begins. This option lets you save your SSDM entries. Otherwise, you would have to re-enter them if you close the SSDM and re-run it when your window begins.
Usage volume: Your migration administrator might set a limit on the number of users who can run the SSDM at the same time. If that limit has been reached when you try to run the SSDM, even if you are within your scheduled window, the program posts an error message and does not let you run the SSDM. The program does, however, offer the option to wait in a queue for the next open "slot" within the limit. This option "parks" the SSDM while you wait your turn and saves all your SSDM entries. Otherwise, you would have to re-enter them if you close the SSDM and re-run it when your turn begins.

If the SSDM is interrupted by any validation checks, the program might offer you the option to Report This Issue, which generates an email to your migration administrators, notifying them of the problem you encountered. (Some administrators configure the SSDM to send such emails automatically so the Report option is not displayed.

If this run of the SSDM clears all the validation checks, no error messages appear and the program migrates your data.
