Dominoes migration gotchas and need2know's: 4.6 - 6.5
Posted on 2004-04-20
I need to be able to prepare some questions and bring up crucial points that an enterprise wide upgrade to Dominos 6.5 will present to the office I work at.
The entire organization has about 2000 people and about 12 offices with a mixed 4.6x/5.x dominoes environment.
The office I work at has 100 people with a 4.6a Dominoes server running on NT4.
The new Dominos 6.5 system will go on an entirely new server with Windows 2003 as the OS.
Any hard lessons learned would be much appreciated here.
Example problems/issues might include (but not be limited too) the migration of user accounts, external resource access changes, new certifiers for OU’s, special tools, etc.
I'm also concerned that those managing the project have not dealt with dominoes 4.6 in some years, and may overlook something crucial during the migration. (anything to avoid massive re-do's)
