Overview

The Migrator for Notes to SharePoint Console provides a higher level view of your migration process than the Migrator for Notes to SharePoint Designer. Rather than focusing on designing and running one migration job for one Notes database, the Console looks across many databases (potentially all the databases in your organization) and helps you control the entire migration process.

If you are using the Migrator for Notes to SharePoint Console, you can:

The functionality offered by the console includes:

Extract QuickPlace®/Quickr® and Domino.Doc site hierarchies

The Migrator for Notes to SharePoint Console is available as a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) 3 Snap-In. MMC is a standard interface for all dialog box management tools and can run as a stand-alone tool or inside a console that includes multiple tools.

The Console consists of three dialog box panes:

 

Console Tree
(left pane)

Allows a user to navigate to a particular set of functionality and ultimately to a set of objects to work on.

The top level tree nodes are:

Results View
(middle pane)

Contains a detailed view appropriate to the item currently selected in the Console Tree. This can be a list of child nodes, a detailed list of selected items such as database records, or a report. You can perform various actions on the items depending on what type of node is selected. You can view details about one particular node in the Property Sheet.

You can customize the results view by:

Action
(right pane)

Consists of a list of actions that can be performed to either the entire result set or the selected items in the result set. The type of actions available depends on what type of result set is displayed.

If the Action Pane is not visible, enable it by selecting View | Customize and checking the "Action Pane" option, or selecting the Show/Hide Action Pane button on the console toolbar.
