Update Links tab

You can use this tool to update the locations of your migrated documents in the Link Tracking database. This will be useful if the locations of your migrated documents have changed (for example, you may have changed the external host name of your SharePoint server, changed the path for a SharePoint site, or moved your content database to a different server).

For example, imagine that you have migrated all your Notes documents to a staging SharePoint environment (http://staging01:8080) and now it is time to go live. You plan to detach your content database and reattach it in your production environment or even a hosted environment such as Microsoft SharePoint Online (say, http://acme.sharepoint.online). The "Update links in the Link Tracking Database" function will allow you to update all references to documents that will be impacted by this move in the Link Tracking Database.

Old URL Prefix

Enter the URL prefix of the documents as they currently appear in the Link Tracking database.

New URL Prefix

Enter the new URL prefix that you want to be the replacement for the above URL prefix.

Update locations of referring documents

Select this check box to update the table of referring documents (documents that contain links to other documents) in addition to updating the locations of your documents. You should only choose this option if the documents at the NEW location will be reachable by the Link Tracking Finalizer tool. In particular, if you are preparing to finalize a set of documents before moving them, you should NOT select this option. If you do, the Finalizer tool will not be able to find them.

Preview

Click this button to preview the current references to documents as stored in the Link Tracking database and the proposed new references to the documents. When the Preview button is pressed, he Progress area at the bottom of the form will become visible if it is not already. The Update Preview tab will appear with the proposed changes. Note that once the Update Preview tab appears, it will continue to be available with the last results. These results are not saved.

Update

Click this button when you are ready to make the changes in the Link Tracking database. If you have lots of documents to update, you will see a status page that updates every few seconds and then a final results page.

Link Finalization tab

You can use this tool to update or permanently replace all Dynamic Links in a set of migrated documents. This works for links in SharePoint List Items, SharePoint Pages, InfoPath documents, Word documents or any other SharePoint target you chose to migrate to.

You can use this tool when updating the Link Tracking Database is not enough and you want to update the actual Dynamic Links in the migrated documents. The most common reason to do this is to permanently replace all Dynamic Links with direct links to the last known locations of the target documents. A secondary reason might be to change the location of your Redirector Page.

This tool allows you to select the set of documents that contain dynamic links that you want to update.
