Migrator for Notes to SharePoint Designer

Introduction

The Migrator for Notes to SharePoint Designer allows you to manage complete Job Definitions, set tool options, and execute migration jobs.

It includes the following tabs:

Table 53. Designer tabs

Notes®/ QuickPlace®/Quickr® Domino.Doc® Data Source

The data source tab is where you select the Lotus Notes® databases, QuickPlace sites, Quickr sites, or Domino.Doc libraries you want to migrate data from. It is also where you select (or create) Data Source Definition files that describe the details of how data should be selected from these data sources and how it should be converted. A different set of options will appear depending on whether you are running Migrator for Notes to SharePoint in Notes, QuickPlace, Quickr, or Domino.Doc mode. To change modes, select the desired mode from the Type dropdown in the upper right hand corner of the tab. For more information, see Selecting data sources.

SharePoint® Data Target

The "SharePoint" tab is where you select the SharePoint List that will be used as the destination of data to be migrated. It is also where you select (or create) a Data Target Definition file that describes how data should be written to this list.

SQL Server® Data Target

This is where you select the target SQL Server database and tables that will be the destination of migrated data. It is also where you select (or create) a Data Target Definition file that describes how data should be written to this database.

Folder Data Target

The Folder tab allows you to migrate the data to a target folder. The following document types are supported for migration:

Map Data

The "Map Data" tab is where you describe how the Notes fields in your Data Source Definition map to the SharePoint fields in your Data Target Definition. In most cases, the "Auto Map" function will do the mappings for you, but you can also override the defaults. Other general options that affect the migration process are available on this tab

Advanced Job Options

The "Advanced" tab contains additional settings for controlling user mapping, security mapping and DocLink conversion functions

Creating a new job

To create a new job, you must complete the following:

1
Click Load Job.
3
Click Open.

Selecting data sources

using Migrator for Notes to SharePoint's Notes database browser. Click Select and select the desired local or server database.
To be sure this is the database to which you want to connect, click Go To Database to open the database that you have selected. If you wish to type in this connection string directly, see “Notes connection string reference” on page 128. If you have typed in your own connection string or have loaded it from an existing Job Definition, you may need to click the Test button to force this connection to occur.
The Template used field is automatically entered. It shows the name of the Notes design template that was originally used as the basis for creating that particular Notes application. This is a key piece of information that Migrator for Notes to SharePoint uses to recognize what type of Notes application it is. For example if the Template used is "StdR6WebDocLib", the Migrator for Notes to SharePoint knows it is a standard Notes version 6 Document Library and can deduce the forms, views, items available.
This option may cause data loss. Be sure that your Job Definition extracts all the data you will ever want out of the Notes documents.
