Migrator for Notes to Exchange 4.16 - SSDM User Guide

Migrating Data

The Migrating Data screen shows you the status of the migration process, noting the program’s progress with your address books, mail file and archive. It also displays the folder name and the overall progress of the migration.

For Office 365 targets, the Microsoft Sign in window may open. This occurs when the MNE Exchange Server Office 365 setting Use Modern Authentication for SSDM has been turned on. To continue with the migration, you must log in with the credentials for migrating the mailbox data. The access token issued after a successful login is stored in a local temporary folder and you are not prompted to log in again during subsequent migrations.

The program will automatically advance to its final Migration Report screen when the process is complete.

If you are running this migration on a workstation with the Microsoft Vista operating system, Windows Firewall may post a Security Alert. Click the Keep blocking option to dismiss the alert. (The alert, and your reply to it, are irrelevant to the migration process. The Unblock option would prompt you for administrator credentials, so the Keep blocking option is the easiest way to dismiss the alert.)

Migration Report

The Migration Report screen appears after the migration process is completed. The screen indicates whether the migration of your Notes data was successful.

If your migration is successful, just click the Exit button to close the program, and thereafter you can start Outlook normally. Your personal address book(s) have been migrated to contact folders in your new Exchange mailbox. Data from your Notes mail file is now in your Exchange mailbox. Data from your Notes archive is placed in a personal folders file (.pst) that carries the same filename as the source .nsf file.

The SSDM may be configured to also offer an Error Log Report button that lets you view the program log file for more information about any errors that may have occurred during the program run. From the Error Log Report, you may also save the log file or print a copy for your system administrator. (The Error Log Report button will not appear if no errors have occurred, or if your migration admin has configured the SSDM to disable it.)

When you are finished

After the Self-Service Desktop Migrator has completed its run, you can turn back on any antivirus application that you disabled prior to the program run (see Before you begin... above). If you don’t know how, ask your system administrator for help.

If mail folders do not open after migration

If any of your PST files (Mail Folders) will not open in Outlook after your migration, the likely cause is that you neglected to turn off a desktop-search application prior to running the Self-Service Desktop Migrator.
