Specify Notes Address Books to be Synchronized

Use the Notes Address Books dialog box to specify the Notes Address Books that will participate in directory synchronization with Exchange. You can specify the default Notes Name and Address Book in which Exchange Active Directory objects are created, and the Name and Address Book from which Notes directory objects are sent to Active Directory.

You can also configure the connector so that addresses from Exchange that contain specific domain names are placed in different Address Books.

Tip   Using the Notes Name and Address Book (Names.nsf) as a target for Exchange updates simplifies directory synchronization in a Notes environment. If you do not want the connector to update Names.nsf, you can specify a different target Name and Address Book.

To specify the Notes Address Books you want to synchronize:

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. Navigate to Connectors.

    Organization

    1. Connectors
  3. Right-click Connector for Lotus Notes (server_name), and then click Properties.
  4. Click the Dirsync Options tab, and then click Address Books Settings.
  5. In Default name and address book, type the name of the Notes database file you want to use as the target for Exchange updates. The default is Names.nsf. If you do not want to synchronize the Notes Address Book with the Exchange domain, leave this text box blank.
  6. Under Domain-specific Target Name and Address Books, click Add.
  7. Exchange objects that contain one of the domain names in Domain-specific Target Name and Address Books are stored in the corresponding Notes Name and Address Book. Exchange objects that have a domain value that does not match one of the specified domain names are stored in the default target Name and Address Book.

  8. In Add Address Book for a specific Domain, type a domain name and the name of the associated Address Book in which you want addresses from that domain stored.
  9. Repeat the previous two steps for each domain for which you want a separate Address Book.
  10. Under Source Name and Address Books, click Add. Type the names of the Notes database files that contain objects that you want to propagate to Exchange. Separate each name with a comma. The default is Names.nsf.
