About the Migrator for Notes to Exchange documentation

About this Scenarios Guide

This Scenarios Guide was developed to help you prepare for your organization’s migration from Notes to Microsoft Exchange, using Quest Migrator for Notes to Exchange. These pages will familiarize you with Migrator for Notes to Exchange component tools, explain how those tools are typically used within the broader context of an overall migration project, and provide step-by-step instructions for how to prepare for migration and then how to migrate the data in various scenarios.

This Guide is intended for network administrators, consultants, analysts, and any other IT professionals who will use the Migrator for Notes to Exchange (MNE) tools or participate in planning for a migration project.

The primary contents of this guide are divided into these chapters:

Quest recommends that administrators read chapter 1 completely, then browse chapter 2 or 3 (depending on the target type) to orient themselves to the various processes and how they vary from one scenario to another. If you intend to migrate any portion of user data using the MNE per-desktop SSDM tool, you should also read chapter 4. The process instructions in chapter 2 or 3 may then serve as a step-by-step checklist when actually performing the tasks they describe.

About the Migrator for Notes to Exchange documentation suite

This Scenarios Guide is one of several documents that explain various aspects of the Migrator for Notes to Exchange (MNE) product. The complete documentation suite includes:

Quick-Start Guide: An orientation to Migrator for Notes to Exchange'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 Migrator for Notes to Exchange tools and features in each scenario.
Administration Guide: Operational details, application notes and screen-by-screen field notes for the administrator components of Migrator for Notes to Exchange.
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 Migrator for Notes to Exchange. The SSDM User Guide is provided as a separate PDF document so that an administrator can distribute it to any end users who will run the per-desktop program.
Program Parameters Reference: A listing of all the Migrator for Notes to Exchange program parameters (and their valid values) in the Task Parameters and Global Defaults, and how to use them to control various program behaviors.
Online Help: Context-sensitive field definitions and application notes for all the Migrator for Notes to Exchange wizards and other component applications.

All these documents, except the SSDM User Guide, are intended for network administrators, consultants, analysts, and any other IT professionals who will install the product, use its admin tools, or contribute to migration project planning. Generally speaking, the Pre-Migration Planning Guide and Scenarios Guide present a more conceptual, theoretical 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 of the Quick-Start Guide and Pre-Migration Planning Guide (in that order), and then the first chapter of the Scenarios Guide. You can use that information to prepare a detailed written Migration Plan before attempting the actual migration process.

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