Edit Default Settings: Active Directory Configuration

This screen collects the information necessary for the program and its Wizards to access Active Directory. (This screen is disabled if you are migrating to Office 365 without using the Microsoft AD synchronization tool.)

Remember to click the Apply button after you enter any new information or changes to existing information in this screen. The program will not read or save any new information or changes until the Apply button is clicked.

Active Directory credentials:

Global Catalog host name: Specify a Global Catalog at a level higher than all users, groups and contacts to be migrated. If you have multiple Global Catalogs/Domain Controllers in an AD forest, you may choose any GC in the setup as long as it is in the same domain.
IMPORTANT: You must enter fully qualified domain names for the Global Catalog host name and the Domain Controller host name that follows.
Domain Controller host name Specify the Domain Controller that is used to read data from or write data to Active Directory.
User name and Password: The access credentials to authenticate the admin by whose authority the program will access the Active Directory.
Always use these values: Mark this check box if you want the wizards that need this information to always use these credentials. If this box is marked, the wizard will skip the screen that requests this information, saving you the trouble of having to reenter the values and manually dismiss the screen. If the checkbox is unmarked, the wizard will take the values entered here as its defaults, but will display the screen to offer the option of accepting or changing the default credentials.
Path to existing organizational unit for distribution groups: Fully qualified domain name for the groups' OU path.
Path to existing organizational unit for creating external members for distribution groups: Fully qualified domain name for the OU path for an existing organizational unit to which group members will be assigned when the member must be created as a new AD contact (when there is no corresponding AD user account).
Create user objects in Active Directory: Check box that determines whether the Provisioning Wizard will create a new user object in AD when none is found by the wizard to correspond with a user in the collection. Such new user objects are created in the container specified by the text box Path to existing organizational unit for creating user objects (below). Ordinarily any such objects created are not mail-enabled, although the EnableUsers parameter (in Task Parameters) can be set to 1 to change that default behavior.
Path to existing organizational unit for creating user objects: Use the Browse button to find and specify the relative domain name for an existing organizational unit (for example, cn=users) where any new user objects will be created in AD—when a wizard encounters a Contact for which there is no existing corresponding AD user account.
Use resource/user Forest: If your target environment is configured for a resource forest and a user forest, with corresponding user accounts, you must provide these credentials for the Data Migration Wizard to properly enable mailboxes and associate the resource accounts with the user accounts. The credentials specified here will identify and characterize the user forest, while the credentials specified for AD credentials (above) pertain to the resource forest.

User forest credentials:

NOTE: In addition to specifying these User forest credentials here, you must also add a set of parameters to the configuration data for the Data Migration Wizard, as explained in Appendix A of the Migrator for Notes to Exchange Administration Guide—see the topic How do I prepare the SQL database for mailbox-enabling (if AD is configured for a resource forest and a user forest)?
Global Catalog host name: The name of the AD server.
User name: The user ID of the administrator who will be running the migration program, by whose authority the program will access the user forest AD. This entry must be the SAM Account name, not the UPN.
Password: The password associated with the above User name.
Apply: Tells the program to read and save any new or changed information in this screen. Any new information or changes will be discarded and lost if you do not click the Apply button before you exit the program.
More info: Launches the Log Viewer application to display the log file associated with the functionality of this screen. This button is enabled only if the program has encountered significant, urgent errors or warnings that typically require further consideration and resolution before continuing in the migration. If no such significant errors or warnings are encountered, the button is grayed-out (unavailable).

Discover Notes Information

Discover Notes Information: Find NABs

This screen helps you locate and identify the Notes address books that will be the program's sources for information to provision AD, identify users and other objects for migration, and facilitate accurate mail-forwarding for the duration of the migration.

Remember to click the Apply button after you enter any new information or changes to existing information in this screen. The program will not read or save any new information or changes until the Apply button is clicked.

Find NABs: Launches the NABs Discovery Wizard, which scans the Notes environment to identify and return a list of all Notes address books, which may then be "mined" by the Directory Export Wizard for information to provision AD, identify users and other objects for migration, and facilitate accurate mail-forwarding for the transition.
NABs table: The list of all NABs found by the NABs Discovery Wizard, plus any additional NABs added by the Add NAB feature (see below).
Add NAB: Opens a dialog box that lets you add, to the NABs table, additional NABs that may have been replicated to some other location (outside the Notes environment where the NABs Discovery Wizard wouldn't find them).
Remove NAB: Removes the selected NAB from the NABs table. This Remove feature may be applied only to NABs that were manually added to the table by the Add NAB feature, and that have not yet been applied to the database (by the Apply button—see below).
Enabled checkboxes: Mark the boxes for all NABs that you want to include as source directories for directory export (on the Export Notes Directory screen), and for building a list of domains in the Find Domains screen. Likewise, be sure to unmark the boxes for any NABs that you want to exclude from directory export and the Internet Domains Discovery Wizard.
Apply: Tells the program to read and save any new or changed information in this screen. Any such updates will be discarded if you do not click the Apply button before you exit the program.

Discover Notes Information: Find Domains

This screen helps you build a comprehensive list of all Internet domains that are likely to be parts of valid SMTP addresses, which the program will need to generate lists of aliases that AD will accommodate after migration. The Internet Domains Discovery Wizard compiles a list of all unique domains found in the NABs marked as "Enabled" on the Find NABs screen, and displays its findings in the Domains table on this screen. You may then add any additional domains that do not occur within the searched NABs, and finally enable and disable individual domains to exclude any obscure domains that AD need not support.

Remember to click the Apply button after you enter any new information or changes to existing information in this screen. The program will not read or save any new information or changes until the Apply button is clicked.

Find Internet domains: Launches the Internet Domains Discovery Wizard, which compiles a list of all unique domains found in the NABs marked as "Enabled" on the Find NABs screen.
Domains table: The list of all found domains (found by the Internet Domains Discovery Wizard), plus any additional domain names added by the Add domain feature (see below).
Add domain: Opens a dialog box that lets you add, to the Domains table, additional domains that do not occur within the enabled NABs (from which the Internet Domains Discovery Wizard built its original Domains table).
Remove domain: Removes the selected domain from the Domains table. You Remove only domains that were manually added to the table by the Add domain feature, and that have not yet been applied to the database (by the Apply button—see below).
Enabled checkboxes: Mark the boxes for all domains that you want AD to regard as valid domains for SMTP address aliases. Likewise, be sure to unmark the boxes for any domains that you do not want AD to support as address aliases. Note that enabling larger numbers of domains here will generate correspondingly greater numbers of supported aliases for every user in AD, which may become unwieldy. More obscure, lesser-used domains can usually be excluded with little or no significant loss of inbound mail.
Apply: Tells the program to read and save any new or changed information in this screen. Any such updates will be discarded if you do not click the Apply button before you exit the program.
Details: For any particular domain selected in the Domains table, opens a pop-up window containing a table of information about the source(s) where the domain was found, such as the DNS name of the server, Notes domain, Internet domain name, and so forth. Click OK to dismiss the pop-up window.
