You may be wondering to yourself, what’s new about directory migration in the Transporter Suite? Well, I’m glad you asked. There were a couple of things that we were trying to accomplish in the area of directory. First of all, it occurred to us that you might want to do a directory migration *before* you do a mail migration rather than have it stapled onto the beginning of MigWiz. Well, we’ve separated it out into its own task, called move-DominoUser. Second of all, our previous directory migration required an act of God (or a Domain Admin) to get things done. We designed the permissions in this new task to allow Account Operators/Recipient admins to do their job. On top of that, when you execute the migration, we’ve enabled you to create the target accounts with mailboxes (if you’re ready for your mailbox migration) or without mailboxes (if you want your mail to keep being delivered to Domino). Finally, we’ve exposed all of this functionality through PowerShell, which makes this whole process easy to automate. Your boss will think you were up working all night, but just between us…
$SecureString = ConvertTo-SecureString –String P@ssw0rd –AsPlainText -Force
Get-DominoUser | Move-DominoUser –TargetOU Users –InitialPassword $SecureString
…will migrate all of your users from Domino to Active directory, creating any new users as Exchange MailUsers in the Users OU with an initial password of P@ssw0rd. If it finds an existing user, it’ll just merge the Domino directory information for that user into the existing account and upgrade it to a MailUser if necessary. You’re done! Time for you to go have dinner. Bon appétit!
