Microsoft Transporter Suite, and Lotus Domino

We are using Microsoft Transport Services to migrate out Domino 8.5 server to Exchange 2007.  I can import my users to AD no problem, but when I go to migrate the mailbox, it tells me that server x is not found.  X seems to be the name of our mail server, which is "mail", but if that were the case, then why would I be able to see it in the first place.  I must be missing a field somewhere.  Domino is set up pretty straight forward.

Any light could be helpful on this.

Thanks!

Not sure what you mean by "see it in the first place." The AD part of it doesn't touch a mailbox, it reads the Domino Directory. I assume "X" and "mail" are the same name? And they refer to the Domino mail If server, not an Exchange host name?

you run the Notes client on the box you are using for mailbox migration, you should be able to verify Notes connectivity to the named server. There is a tool built into the client's network preferences section to test connectivity, and it indicates whether it succeeded in resolving the name, what it resolved the name to, and whether it and how it succeeded in communicating with the server using that resolution, and any secondary path(s) it tried upon failure.

Lotus notes can connect on the machine that is doing the migration.

Yes the name of our Lotus Domino server is Mail.

I can migrate users, but when I try to migrate mailboxes from Lotus to Exchange, that's where I get the error.

I found the answer to this.  I basically went back through the 120 page manual with a fine toothed comb.  I was able to resolve the issues by doing all the correct steps in the manual.

The manual basically had all the answers.  I had to go through it with a fine toothed comb.  I also looked at various walk throughs on line.
