Google Apps Migration for Outlook Command Line

Our organization is planning a move to a pre-existing Google Apps deployment.
We have a bunch of users to move but, unfortunately, we do not have administrator access to the destination Google Apps deployment.

Without Admin access to Google Apps, we cannot get OAuth and that means that the Google Apps Migration tool for Exchange is off the table.

In the interest of automating the process, it would appear that Google Apps Migration tool for Outlook (http://support.google.com/a/users/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=181240&topic=28836&ctx=topic) has a command line option.

It seems to work, however, I need to know if I can run multiple instances of this to move several mailboxes simultaneously.  Google says they do not recommend it, therefore cannot give me any idea of what would happen if I did it.

Has anyone had any experience with this?  I need some guidance.

That's the tool I've run on client machines just fine. Id expect it to either not run more than one at a time or mess up if you did so. It also doesn't work with outlook 2013 last I checked.

I was hoping to get some alternative method. If I can't, I'll end up spooling of PST files.
