Transporter Suite for Lotus Notes not migrating mail.

Posted on 2008-10-01
Last Modified: 2013-12-18
I have been trying to migrate mail from Lotus Notes to Exchange 2007.  The connector is installed and I am able to pull up both the user accounts and the mail accounts on the domino server.  User accounts migrate over to AD without error.  Mailboxes migrate, but none of the mail items, contacts....migrate over to the new mailbox that is created.  I have checked and re-checked all settings, and all are correct.  

The error I get is:
An item has failed property validation and will ignored.
Identifier: (Name:Inbox)
Error details: Required property is empty.
Property: Target Server

Exchange version is 2007 SP1 Enterpise
Transporter Suite v08.02.0053
Domino - v7.0.3 running on AS400
Windows 2008 running an AD 2003 Forest

DId you do a compact of all the mail DBs before trying this to make sure they are all corruption free.

For those of you out there that have been having the same issue, and not finding the answer...with Exchange 2007 running on Windows server 2008 disable IPv6.  Once I did this I was able to migrate mail with the Transporter Suite without any problem.

Hi s_pulsifer,

Im having the same problem you had last time with the migration tool.

did you disable IPv6 on the win2008 box only? how did you disable this with a reg hack or something simpler?

Yep - the Win2008 server only.  Disabled IPv6 in the TCPIP properties - un-check it and apply the change.

I tried almost everything.

The answer for me was in this Microsoft KB:

<httpRuntime executionTimeout="1200" maxRequestLength="51200" />

It seems that in some instances the executionTimeout property is required.
