Thank you so much for your valuable inputs but as I’m very new to Lotus Notes, I need your so extra help on this.

I have total 9500 users on 13 exchange 5.5 servers

I have three exchange site

Exchange Site A            5 servers            with 3500 mailbox approx
Exchange Site B            3 servers            with 2500 mailbox approx
Exchange Site C             5 servers            with 3500 mailbox approx

All Exchange site are connected with x.400 connector for mail flow and Directory Replication Connector for exchange replication. All exchange site are connected over the WAN link.

Site A has a Internet Mail Connector for INBOUN/OUTBOUND internet emails.

This setup needs to be migrated to Lotus Domino.

Is there some step by step documentation available for to understand how to migrate this environment.


Thanks in advance...

you might try looking over the IBM redbook on migrating from Exchange to Notes

http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/abstracts/sg246955.html?Open

You will find that a lot of the exchange concepts have an equivalent in domino

Exchange sites = Domino Named networks
x.400 connector = (roughly) Domino Connection Documents
IMC = SMTP task on Domino

You will have a harder time with concepts on the client more than you will with the server.

What version of Domino are you migrating to?

if you can, I would suggest to migrate to version 7. It has some client features that outlook users might like such as sorting by subject

However, I know there are business considerations as well.

Do we have some redbook on that as well?

Also check if we have some thing on migrating from AD and Exchange 2000 also.

There's not much difference between 6 and 7 on the server side. The redbook should apply.

As for the AD/exchange I haven't had any experience with that one. I would have to look. I do know there is an AD plugin for Notes to let you manage some aspects of the notes account via AD users & computers but it requires a schema modification.

I will see what I can find.

p.s. here are 2 could resources in addition to EE that you can look at for research
