Exchange to Lotus Notes Migration

Hi All,

We use Lotus Notes and a sister site we recently bought uses Exchange.

I've been asked to handle the integration/migration.

More than likely we will retain Lotus Notes as the database feature is highly used.

Has anyone done a migration?

What software do you recommend and are there any things I should be particularly looking out for?

Any tips etc.. are welcome.

many thanks

Most of the tools you already have: they are in the install kit, you can update your installation and get the Migration Tools. But there are other tools and options on the market (e.g. Quest).

There are dozens of documents that describe how to coexist and migrate, here are a few:
- (Exchange 2003 to R7)
- (a bit old but still 80% valid)

If you want more detailed info, please ask!

Ideally we'd like to be able to an exchange user to lotus notes one user at a time when they need access one of the lotus notes databases.
Hi there Detox ,,,

Could you give some more details please about your request (Ideally we'd like to be able to an exchange user to lotus notes one user at a time when they need access one of the lotus notes databases.) it is not clear.

Best wishes

We currently have two email systems and at some point would like to migrate the Exchange users onto Lotus Notes.

My guess is this will be when the Exchange users want access to a Lotus Notes database.

OK from my experince and as mentioned by  sjef_bosman Quest can do this migration ....

Best in market? May I suggest you read the pages and documents I posted, and you install the migration tools supplied by Lotus? Just run the install on your system again, you opt to Update the configuration, and then select the Migration Tools.

Depending on how long you expect to be in a co-existence mode, I'd recommend looking into Binary Tree's CMT for Co-Existence. I've used this very successfully in the past. They also have migration tools which also work very well. Binary Tree's strength is in retaining the fidelity of the migrated data.
