Migrator for Notes to Exchange 4.16 - Quick Start Guide

Licensing Migrator for Notes to Exchange

Migrator for Notes to Exchange is a metered-use product that requires the application of a valid license key. An MNE license key is installed MNE’s Notes Migration Manager component.

Quest sells license keys for particular numbers of users to be migrated. When the limit is reached the software continues to function normally for users that have already been migrated, but will not migrate additional users. The same license is used for all functions of a particular user (provisioning, forwarding, migration, etc.), and the user license count increments the first time any program function is applied to each user. That is, when any feature of any MNE component is applied to a particular user, then all features of all components can be applied to the same user under the same license. Moreover, users can be re-migrated (if necessary) using the original licenses; re-migration does not require an additional license.

A trial license is intended to let you try the MNE software in your own environment, with your own data, to help you determine whether MNE’s capabilities are suitable to your needs. Under a trial license, therefore, the program stamps a "MIGRATION EVALUATION" prefix into the Subject of every migrated message, and also imposes these limitations:

You can obtain your first or a subsequent license key by contacting a Quest Software sales representative. For either a trial or perpetual license, the key takes the form of a file NotesEX_4-###-#####.dlv (where ###-##### represents your unique license number), sent to you from Quest Licensing as an email file attachment. Copy the license key file to your Desktop, or to some other convenient location.

The product will install without a license key, but will prompt you to apply a license key the first time you try to run the software. You will be prompted to find and specify the license key file that Quest provided. Use the Browse feature to locate and specify the .dlv license file.

If you are upgrading from an earlier version, the automated upgrade process will transfer the existing license key into the new version, so you do not need to re-install it. For new installations, the license installer will only install the new format license files (.dlv). The older format (.asc) is no longer supported.

Running Migrator for Notes to Exchange

When you launch the Notes Migration Manager, Migrator for Notes to Exchange checks to see if an MNE database connection exists on your migration server. If a connection does not exist, you must establish the database connection.

1
Launch the Notes Migration Manager from the Start menu: All Programs | Quest | Migrator for Notes to Exchange | Migration Manager.

If the Migrator for Notes to Exchange database is not found on the SQL Server that you have specified, you will be prompted to install the database tables required on your SQL Server. If you have selected the correct SQL Server, you should click OK to populate your SQL Server with the required database tables.

Post-installation tasks

Migrator for Notes to Exchange uses some directories that must have certain permissions assigned to them. Prior to running discovery, provisioning and migration tasks, you must create the required directories. These directories must be shared with permissions as described below:

Bulk Import directory: A directory from which the SQL Server can read and write .
Administrator log directory: A directory from which the administrator tools (Migration Manager and wizards) can read and write.
Common application directory: A directory where components and data common to the admin tools and SSDM are stored. The migration admin must be able to write and read to this directory, while access for all non-admin SSDM users should be set to read only.
Desktop migration logs directory (optional): A directory for collecting logs from desktop migration runs, when users run the Self-Service Desktop Migrator to migrate local datastores and encrypted data. Users running the SSDM will need write access to the directory in order to post the results of their migrations.
