Migrator for Notes to Exchange 4.16.3 - Quick Start Guide

About the MNE Documentation

About this Quick Start Guide

This Quick Start Guide has been prepared to get you started with Migrator for Notes to Exchange (MNE)—to orient you to its basic purposes and features, and to help you install it. This Guide also presents a brief narrative case study to illustrate how MNE components are most typically used within the broader context of an overall migration project. The Quick-Start Guide is written for network administrators, consultants, analysts, and any other IT professionals who will install the product, use its administrative tools, or contribute to migration project planning.

About the MNE documentation suite

This Quick Start Guide is one of several documents that explain various aspects of the Quest Migrator for Notes to Exchange product. The complete documentation suite includes:

Quick-Start Guide: An orientation to MNE's basic purposes, components and features, with a case study to illustrate typical usage. Also includes instructions for downloading and installing the software.
Pre-Migration Planning Guide: A checklist of strategic and tactical issues that an organization must consider and accommodate before beginning a migration project. An appendix also documents known limitations of the migration process.
Scenarios Guide: Descriptions of the most common migration scenarios—migrating to different target environments and for an array of other variables and preferences—with process instructions and flow charts that explain how to use MNE tools and features in each scenario.
Administration Guide: Operational details, application notes and screen-by-screen field notes for the administrator components of MNE.
Self-Service Desktop Migrator User Guide: Operating instructions, application notes and screen-by-screen field notes for the Self-Service Desktop Migrator (SSDM) component of MNE. The SSDM User Guide is provided as a separate PDF document so that an administrator can distribute it to the end users who will run the per-desktop program.
Program Parameters Reference: A listing of all MNE program parameters and the valid values in the Task Parameters and Global Defaults, and how to use the parameters to control various program behaviors.
Online Help: Context-sensitive field definitions and application notes for all of the MNE wizards and other component applications.

All these documents except the SSDM User Guide are intended for network administrators, consultants, analysts, and any IT professionals who will install the product, use its administrative tools, or contribute to migration project planning. Generally speaking, the Pre-Migration Planning Guide and Scenarios Guide present a more conceptual, view of the product, while the Administration Guide provides the hands-on, screen-by-screen descriptions and field notes. The SSDM User Guide is intended for end users or administrators who will use the Self-Service Desktop Migrator component.

NOTE: Quest recommends that all administrators read all the Quick-Start Guide and Pre-Migration Planning Guide (in that order), and the first chapter of the Scenarios Guide. You can use that information to prepare a detailed written Migration Plan before attempting the migration process.

When you are ready to begin the migration process, you may refer as needed to the process instructions and notes in the Scenarios Guide, and the operational details in the Administration Guide.
