Background
My client has asked to migrate from Exhcange 5.5 to lotu domino r5. We cannot use Domino Upgrade Services to connect directly to existing exchange servers. We are being given approx 40gb of PST files exported from Exchange.

Does anyone know of another bulk import solution for PST files to Lotus domino?

Goto Command Prompt and switch to notes executable directory and give this command, nupgrade 3

If the system complain of not finding the file then re-install the notes clien with migration tools checked on.

Then run nupgrade 3 and follow the prompts accordingly.

I thought this facility just allows a notes client to import an archive PST.

I want to be able to import numerious users into notes, from separate single PST files, into seperate Users notes mailboxes. Is this what it does?

This is my understanding of the tool, let me share it with you.

Whenever you issue this command it will look for outlook.pst.

And it will look for keyfilename in notes.ini and accordingly it will create the file in mail folder.

What you have to do is move outlook.pst (let us name it as original) file to some backup dir. Then copy one pst file and rename it to outlook.pst. Then perform the upgrade, the mails will be transfered to a predefined file depending upon the id. Rename it to User1.nsf. Then remove outlook.pst and copy second pst and again perform the same operation. After everything is done let the users have their outlook to notes mail files and copy it to the mail database. Then restore the original outlook.pst.

This is little tedious and time consuming. If you want to look for tool to do this then search this site.

HemanthaKuar,

Thanks for your efforts. I have suggested this to the notes guys and they say, we will use Domino Upgrade Services to talk directly to the exchange directory.

You can have the points anyway for you troubles.
