Database discovery

Before you can start managing your migration process, Migrator for Notes to SharePoint must identify all of your Notes databases. The Migrator for Notes to SharePoint Console supports several modes of discovering Notes databases. Discovery occurs by reading the information collected by the Domino Cataloger process or by directly scanning the Domino server folders, or both. If your organization maintains a Database Catalog or Domain Catalog, that is a great place to start for quick discovery of all your databases. If not, a direct scan works just as well (although it will not be quite as fast and is subject to the access rights of the person performing the discovery).

During the discovery process, certain information may be immediately excluded based on the configured Exclusion and Filtering rules defined in the Console tab of the Configuration dialog box.

Also during the discovery process, Database Classes are assigned according to your configured Classification Rules. For more information, see Notes databases.

The actual discovery process is initiated by the user. All discovered information is stored as part of the database record in the Repository database and is viewable in database views and the database property sheets.

Once you have filled out the Discovery tab in the Configuration dialog box, you can run the Database Discovery process.

2
Select Action | Discover Databases.

You can also select the Discover Databases action in the Action Pane or the context menu. The Database Discovery Options dialog box will appear.

This dialog box is where you specify:

Discover from known server locations - Select the check boxes for all the servers that you want to run this process for. You can click the Select All link to select all check boxes. To deselect all of the check boxes, click the select none link.
Discover from known database/domain catalogs - Select the check boxes for all the database/domain catalogs for which you want to run this process. You can click the Select All link to select all of the check boxes. To deselect all of the check boxes, click the Select None link.

To scan a specific database on a server, click the Select individual database link. This will open the Select Database dialog box. Select the server and database path that you want to run the discovery scan on. To browse all the databases on the server, click the Select button. Once the server and database path are specified, click OK to run the database discovery process.

To add another server location to the list, click the Manage Locations link. This will open the Configure Scan Locations dialog box. To add another server, click the Add button. These newly defined servers will be added to the list of servers to run the discover process against once OK is clicked.

Run task in background - Select this check box to run the process in the background. The process will be displayed as a task under the Task history node of the console. Open the task to view the results of the process as well as any errors or warnings. If this option is not selected, the process will run in the foreground. For more information, see General rules for running tasks. Click OK to run the process. As databases are discovered, they will appear in the appropriate database views. For more information, see Notes databases.

QuickPlace/Quickr discovery

The QuickPlace/Quickr Discovery process browses the configured QuickPlace/Quickr servers and determines how the various databases used to implement QuickPlace/Quickr sites relate to one another and what roles they play in the QuickPlace/Quickr application abstraction (sites -> rooms -> sub-rooms). The discovery process also reads the QuickPlace/Quickr room menu to rebuild the SharePoint Quick Launch menu to mirror it during migration. During the discovery process, certain information can be excluded based on the configured Exclusion and Filtering rules defined in the Console tab of the Configuration dialog box.

The result of this process updates the Application information stored under the Applications node of the Console.

Domino.Doc discovery

The Domino.Doc Discovery process browses the configured Domino.Doc servers and determines how the various databases used to implement Domino.Doc libraries relate to one another and what roles they play in the Domino.Doc application abstraction (libraries -> cabinets -> binders). During discovery, certain information can be excluded based on the configured Exclusion and Filtering rules defined in the Console tab of the Configuration dialog box.
