Select Notes Administrative Operations

This screen appears only if you have selected Notes administrative functions in the Operations screen. Specify which Notes administrative functions you want the program to perform for users in the selected collection, and click Next.

Set Notes foreign directory sync (feature available only when not performing mail routing): Tells the wizard to let CMN’s Directory Connector extract user data from the Notes directory during its directory synchronization. (This corresponds to the Notes parameter Allow foreign directory synchronization.) To disable foreign directory sync, leave the checkbox marked but select Disable in the drop-down list box. In some configurations, migrated objects that have been merged or mailbox-enabled in AD become unrecognizable to a Notes' directory update, so the update mistakenly creates duplicate objects in AD. You should therefore Disable foreign directory sync if:
The Notes person documents are not set to turn users into Exchange objects.
Set Notes user visibility: Tells the program to let you specify the preferred scope of user visibility in the Domino directory. If this checkbox is marked, the wizard will later display another screen for you to specify user visibility.
Set Notes Person Document Attributes (appears only if Migrate users is selected on the wizard's Operations screen, and if the Count=<#> parameter value is greater than zero in the [PersonDocCustom] section of the Task Parameters): Tells the wizard whether to assign attribute values to Notes person documents as defined by parameters in the same [PersonDocCustom] section. (See that section of the Migrator for Notes to Exchange Program Parameters Reference for information about how to assign the values.) If this check box is clear, the wizard will ignore the [PersonDocCustom] parameters.
Send migration notification messages: Select this option send mail merge messages when a data migration is not in progress. It displays the Configure mail-merge messages to migrating users screen.

Specify Data for Migration

This screen appears only if you have selected Migrate users in the Operations screen. Select items here to define the scope of this migration, and click Next. A later screen will ask you to specify whether each type of data should be migrated to personal folder (.pst) files or to server-based mailboxes.

This screen is designed to let you migrate email messages, calendar data and the trash folder independently, from the server and/or from the archives.

Migrate mail data: You may specify one or more of e-mail messages, “Active Mail,” calendar data, task data, the trash folder, and/or iNotes contacts.
[P] Migrate Active Mail [ Configure ]

This Migrator for Notes to Exchange feature can detect and convert Notes rich-content features whereby messages carry "live" or "active" functional content. For more information about Active Mail, see Migrating Notes “Active Mail” in chapter 3 of Migrator for Notes to Exchange’s Pre-Migration Planning Guide.

To enable Active Mail processing: Mark the Migrate Active Mail checkbox, click the Configure button (next to the checkbox field), and enter your preferences in the pop-up dialog box:
[ ] Encrypted mail
[
P] Stored forms
[P] Hotspots
[P] Rich markup
Then click OK to save your preferences, clear the dialog box, and return to the Specify Data to Migrate screen.
The Notification message (whose file path is specified in the dialog box, see above) is a file containing a text string that Migrator for Notes to Exchange inserts at the top of the body of any migrated message containing Active Mail. Migrator for Notes to Exchange installs a default file, ActiveMailNotificationMessage.txt, to the Migrator for Notes to Exchange installation directory, but you can specify a different filename and/or folder in the dialog box.
The text file must be UTF-8 encoded and must contain a placeholder, called $ActiveMailAttachment$, that Migrator for Notes to Exchange will replace with the Active Mail NSF attachment when the message is migrated. Since the contents of this text file become part of an RTF body, characters like "\", "{", and "}" must be escaped with a leading "\" (so they become, respectively, "\\", "\{", and "\}").
Migrate archives: You may specify one or more of e-mail messages, calendar data, task data, and/or the trash folder.
Migrate personal address books: Notes users' PABs typically are stored locally (per user), but may also reside with the mailfile, or on a server, and can therefore be migrated by any of four different methods. The Send PAB Replicator Wizard can help users copy their PABs to a central location on the Domino server, so that this feature can migrate them. For more information about migrating PABs, see Migrating PABs in chapter 3 of Migrator for Notes to Exchange’s Pre-Migration Planning Guide.
Merge into folder named: Enter the name for the folder that will contain the migrated PABs—a Contacts folder in a mailbox or .pst file, not a file system folder.
NOTE: If Contacts have already been migrated to a folder other than the default Contacts folder, the wizard will remigrate Contacts only to the same folder, even if you specify a different folder name. To remigrate Contacts to a different folder name, you must first hard-delete the previous Contacts folder and its contents. If you try to remigrate Contacts to a different folder name without deleting the previous folder, the wizard will simply migrate them (excluding duplicates) to the previous folder.
Migrate recent contacts into folder named: Enter the name for the folder that will contain the migrated PABs' Recent Contacts lists.
Set contact 'File as' to: Determines the format of the contact’s File As attribute in Exchange. The File As attribute is used by Outlook to alphabetize your contacts. The options for this setting are:
Use current display name: Use the Display Name attribute of the address book entry. By default Migrator for Notes to Exchange migrates contacts using display names that match the display name of the contact in Notes, however the contact’s display format can be modified using the [General] ContactDisplayNameFormat parameter.
FirstLast: Create the File As using the first name and last name attributes separated by a space. The middle name and name suffix are included if present.
LastFirst: Create the File As using the last name and first name attributes separated by a comma. The middle name is included if present.

Specify How To Migrate Notes DocLinks

This screen appears only if you have selected Migrate mail data in the Specify Data for Migration screen. Select one option to specify the format you want migrated DocLinks to take, and click Next. Your options:

NOTES links (default): This option requires the Notes client to be installed and running on end users’ desktops to facilitate the rendering of the Notes documents.
Notes .NDL attachment: This option requires the Notes client to be installed and running on end users’ desktops to facilitate the rendering of the Notes attachments.
HTML links to your Domino webserver: A DocLink migrated as an HTML link will not require the Notes client on the user’s desktop, and will instead open into a web browser if iNotes is enabled.
NOTE: The Domino webserver option is incompatible with an Offline migration (as described in chapter 1 of the Migrator for Notes to Exchange Scenarios Guide), since Migrator for Notes to Exchange cannot connect to an offline Domino server to perform the DocLink translation.
HTML links to your SharePoint Server: A SharePoint server link will point to a document on a separate SharePoint server. This requires that you have Notes Migrator for SharePoint (formerly "Proposion Portal format"). If you select this SharePoint option, you must also specify:
Site Address: URL to location of these documents on the SharePoint server.

Notes Mail Files

This screen appears only if you have selected Migrate mail data in Specify Data for Migration. Select one option to tell the program how to locate server-based mail files for migration, and click Next. Your options:

Through Domino server(s): Tells the program migrate users’ server-based mail via the server, which will require an admin login. Each user's server-based mail file was located (by an earlier run of the Notes Data Locator Wizard) by combining the MailServer column and the MailFile column in the SQL database. This Data Migration Wizard will then open the mail file using the admin user credentials. The admin must be listed in the Manager ACL for the NSF file.
Through the file system: Tells the wizard to migrate users' server- based mail via the file system, from source files located by an earlier run of the Notes Data Locator Wizard—in subtrees located by the wizard, or in the path specified by the MailFilePath column of the SQL database.
