Directory coexistence with Office 365

A Microsoft-hosted Active Directory (for Office 365) imposes strict access restrictions that prevent direct directory coexistence between Notes and a hosted AD. With Quest Coexistence Manager for Notes, however, you could establish a "two-step" coexistence between Domino and Office 365 by this process:

The combination of the two configures an effective directory coexistence between Domino and Office 365.

Mail, calendar and free/busy coexistence with Office 365

Office 365 introduces new options for coexistence and hybrid deployments. These include identity and calendar federation options that can be leveraged for Notes projects. Microsoft calendar federation requires a local Exchange server, but enables bi-directional free/busy lookups with Office 365 users.

Coexistence Manager for Notes can leverage this configuration to provide free/busy lookups with Notes users, although free/busy queries in the Exchange-to-Notes direction require that Notes users (awaiting migration) not already have an Exchange mailbox, which in turn requires that Office 365 be provisioned from a local AD by Microsoft AD Sync tool. (This is explained in more detail in the Provisioning and mailbox creation section above.)

CMN also enables direct email and calendar coexistence with Office 365.

Offline migration

Migrator for Notes to Exchange supports scenarios where it is impossible or impractical for the source and target servers to both be connected to Migrator for Notes to Exchange at the same time, so the data cannot be copied directly from the source to the target. An offline migration is a strategy in which Notes source data that was previously extracted from Notes is migrated directly to the Exchange target. An offline strategy can be valuable:

An offline migration can be accomplished by either of these two approaches:

The subtopics below provide specific requirements and guidance for these offline scenarios.

How to save Notes data to NSF or PST files

Remember in either case (NSFs or PSTs) that you will need:

Saving Notes data to NSFs is a native Notes/Domino feature. If necessary, see the Notes documentation for more information.

In the MNE Notes Migration Manager, on the Notes Server Configuration screen, ensure the Always use these values checkbox is not checked.
