How do I configure AD to replicate an AD attribute to the Global Catalog?

If the AD attribute you want to use for the Provisioning Wizard is not among the 26 defaults, you can add one or more other attributes to the list by defining each addition in the Global Defaults or Task Parameters. This procedure is explained elsewhere in this Appendix (see How do I add to the list of AD attributes available for the merge function?).

Any AD attribute added to the list must be replicated to the Global Catalog, or the merge function will fail. You can configure AD to replicate an AD attribute to the Global Catalog as explained in the following procedure:

3
On the File menu, select Add/Remove Snap-in.
4
Click Add, select Active Directory Schema, click Add, and then return to the main window.
5
Click Attributes, and wait for the list to expand.
7
Select Replicate the attribute to the Global Catalog, and click OK.

How do I specify per-user locations for Notes source data?

Per-user locations for users’ source data are (if necessary) specified in the SQL database. To edit the contents of that database, you must export the data to a .tsv (tab-separated-values format) file, then edit the contents of the table, and then import the edited .tsv file back into the SQL database.

For PABs: To designate the locations of user PABs, enter the appropriate per-user values into one of these columns (not both):

PABPaths column: The specific UNC path and filename for a user's Notes address book(s). Multiple address books can be designated by separating them with a pipe ( | ) character. Ordinarily the full path and file name are given, and file ownership is not checked. If a directory (only) is specified, all PABs found in the directory are assumed to be owned by the user. Examples:
SharedPabDirs column: A file system directory or Notes server directory that contains NSF files for multiple users. This column can be used to specify a more specific set of directories to scan for a user's data, so the application can scan a subset of a larger shared directory structure and determine the owner based on profile documents and/or ACLs. This is useful if a group of users to be migrated shares a directory structure and you can't be certain that all address books belong to just one user. If a file system path is specified here, ownership is checked based on the profile documents and/or ACLs. Examples:

For Archives: To designate the locations of user archives, enter the appropriate per-user values into one of these columns (not both):

ArchivePaths column: The specific UNC path and filename for a user's Notes archive file(s). Multiple archives can be designated by separating them with a pipe ( | ) character. Ordinarily the full path and file name are given, and file ownership is not checked. If a directory (only) is specified, all archives found in the directory are assumed to be owned by the user. Examples:
SharedArchiveDirs column: A file system directory or Notes server directory that contains NSF files for multiple users. This column can be used to specify a more specific set of directories to scan for a user's data, so the application can scan a subset of a larger shared directory structure and determine the owner based on profile documents and/or ACLs. This is useful if a group of users to be migrated shares a directory structure and you can't be certain that all address books belong to just one user. If a file system path is specified here, ownership is checked based on the profile documents and/or ACLs. Examples:

For Mail Files: To specify per-user locations and filenames for users’ source mail files in the SQL database rather than from entries in the Data Migration Wizard, enter the appropriate per-user values into this column:

MailFilePath column: The specific path and NSF filename to a user's mail file, used when an administrator knows the specific path and NSF file name for each user. Example:
If the MailFilePath column does not exist or is left empty, the program will look for the user's mail file in the path entered in the Notes Data Locator Wizard (on the Specify Notes Mail File Directories screen).

How do I specify per-user destination locations for users' PST files?

Per-user destination locations for users’ new PST files are (if necessary) specified in the SQL database. To edit the contents of the SQL database, you must export the data to a .tsv (tab-separated-values format) file, then edit the contents of the table, and then import the edited .tsv file back into the SQL database.

To specify per-user destinations for users’ new PST files in the SQL database rather than from entries in the Data Migration Wizard, enter the appropriate per-user values into this column:

PSTdir column: The directory where PSTs are stored for the user, used if each user's PST will go to a separate directory. Normally the admin would specify a central location for the wizard to create all PSTs, and the wizard would create a subtree under that. If the admin would rather put each PST in each user's home directory, then each user's home directory can be added here. Example:

How do I specify whether to migrate to a single PST file (per user) or multiple PST files?

When migrating to .pst files, a program parameter in the Global Defaults and Task Parameters lets you specify whether the Data Migration Wizard should migrate all data into a single .pst file per user, or to multiple .pst files. The boolean parameter that controls this option is UseSeparatePSTs. By default (1), data is migrated to multiple .pst files. But:

... tells the wizard to migrate all data into a single .pst file per user.

If you are unfamiliar with the procedure to edit program parameters, see How do I add or edit program parameters? elsewhere in this Appendix.
