Mail Migration

Basic mailbox migration workflow consists of the following steps:

# Step
Deploying Client Update Agent
Migrating Mailboxes
Configure mail forwarding from target to source
Configure notifications for mailbox owners
Switch mailboxes

Deploying Client Update Agent

Once the migration is complete, Outlook clients should be redirected to the new Exchange Online. You can control this switch automatically through On Demand Migration console – all you have is to deploy a small utiltity called Client Update Agent to the end-user machines.

Downloading the Agent

Go to the project dashboard and click Download Agent action.

Click Download.

IMPORTANT: The Client Update Agent package comes with the certificate for securing connections between the agent and On Demand Migration. If you suspect that the certificate might be compromised – download the package again, selecting Reissue the certificate option. The previously issued certificate will be immediately revoked.

Deploying the Agent

The Client Update Agent package comes with the agent’s executable that checks the migration status and performs the switching odmclient.exe and the certificate for securing connections between the agent and On Demand Migration certificate.pfx. Now you can automatically distribute then across all clients:

  1. Deploy the certificate to all end-user machines with Group Policy.

See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/identity/ad-fs/deployment/distribute-certificates-to-client-computers-by-using-group-policy for details.

  1. Create a logon script for client computers.
    For detailed information on command-line parameters, refer to the document (readme.txt) that comes with the package.
