  • Hi

    1. Didnt go for the secod solution because we had a Exchange 2010 Hosted farm, at this point, and we concluded that the operation would take longer with all the extra manual work. Because you then had to migrate it first to Exchange 2007, upgrade it to Exchange 2010 and then migrate it over to our Exchange 2010 Hosted farm.

    2. The Quest Software you pay pr licence, so think you have to contact a reseller for a price estimate.
    http://www.quest.com/partners/partner-finder.aspx

    The migration job i did, was with an external domino server, we did a migration over the internet. So you could say that the migration job depends on the network speed. I ended up with transfering 1-2 GB pr hour if i remember right.

    The installation and pre-planing is not that hard, and Quest has a good guide/documentation that is step by step what you need to do also.
    You can find this here: 

    https://support.quest.com/Search/SearchDocumentation.aspx?dsNav=Rpp:25,Ns:P_DateLastModifiedSortable%7c101%7c-1%7c,Nrc:id-11%7cid-5%7cid-58,Nea:False,N:268441516-4294957385,Nr:AND(OR(35%2c8%2c43%2c59)%2cP_SecurityRole%3aEXTERNAL)&Dt=Notes+Migrator+for+Exchange 

    You install this software on a client or server based computer that can speed with both the Domino/Notes server and Exchange server. (You install Lotus Notes client and Outlook Client).
    The accounts need to have special rights to do this task, you can find more info about it in the documentation (Linked above).

    Emails that you want to migrate need to have the same SMTP-address on the notes server and exchange server, for the client to know where to migrate the mailbox to.

    The problems i ended up with was if a client in Notes has his/her mail encrypted, you have to decrypt it before migrate, or do a new migration on the mailboxes that you didn´t get mail transfered on.

    You can watch a video her how the Migration GUI looks like (Click on the Video tab):

  • Hi

    I´ve already done a job like this, and i had to use a third-party-tool for this project. I ended up with using Quest Software - Notes Migration Exchange for this.

    You can read more about it her:

    http://www.quest.com/notes-migrator-for-exchange/

    The other solution is that you can migrate from Notes to Exchange 2007 with the Microsoft Transporter Suite.

  • Thanks for the reply...!!!

    couple of questions ...

    1. why didnt u go for the second solution which u gave me . which was also free... why u went for paid solution. And how much reliable is this one .. as compared to quest..

    2. any idea how much you spend on this with QUEST .

    and as you have already done with this .. Can you guide me with the stages of this .. things to look and data/ information to gather from client.

    how much domain name play role in Lotus. thanks for the time and help


    MARK AS USEFUL/ANSWER IF IT DID

  • Recently I found a powerful tool which I tested in my environment is Bitacube Lotus Notes to Office 365 migration tool

    https://www.bitacube.com/lotus-notes-to-office-365-migration.html

    It has good capacity to migrate Lotus Notes to Office 365, live exchange, PST, eml, msg, as well as HTML.

    Though I recommend to have a free trial first if it suits to your environment.
