Problems with the Lotus Notes connector for Exchange 2003
Posted on 2010-11-24
I am in the process of trying to transition from Lotus Domino 7 to Exchange 2003 and have hit a problem.
All users and the domino server are in windows Domain A and as our company name has changed we are moving into a new Domain “Domain B".
I have setup the new Exchange server and followed Microsoft’s document on setting up the connector etc and have got the connector to start fine.
On the properties of the connector I have setup the import option and run the "immediate Full Reload" which has imported the Domino address book into an OU called Lotus users (I choose the option to create users as disabled AD accounts).
Because no users currently exist in the new domain (Domain B) I have not setup the Export option (AD to Domino) as there are no new users to sync back to the Domino address book? This could be why I get the next problem....
I have successfully migrated a test user’s mail file from Domino to Exchange however it is not updating the Domino directory or deleting the mail file from Domino to show the new routing?
What OU should I specify as the import OU? The migrated user is active in the Lotus user OU, should I move them out into a new OU and choose that as the import area (AD to Domino)
I hope all that makes sense!
Thanks in advance..
