The Migrate Groups Console allows you to migrate information from user's Lotus Domino mail databases to Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 mailboxes.

Console Tree

The console tree is located on the left side of the console and is organized by type of action. You can choose:

  • Connect to configure the Directory and Free/Busy Connectors

  • Migrate to configure and perform directory, mail, and application migrations

Result Pane

The result pane is located in the center of the console. By default, this pane displays the first 1,000 groups listed in the Domino Directory. Click Create Filter to define criteria that determines which groups are displayed in this pane.

Filter Pane

The dialog box on the far left allows you to select the information type that you want to search for when selecting user names. The center dialog box allows you to identify how to use the information in the third dialog box (for example: equals, does not equal) to define matches for this criteria.

Action Pane

The action pane is located on the right side of the console. The action pane is an extension of the shortcut menu, which is the menu that appears when you right-click an item. However, the shortcut menu is still available.

The following table lists the options that are available in the Migrate Groups action pane.

Click View in the action pane to modify how objects are displayed. The following options are available:

  • Add/Remove Columns

    Click Add/Remove Columns to select the columns that you want to display in the result pane or to change the order of the columns in the result pane. The available columns change based on the node that you select.

    The Transporter Management Console automatically saves your settings. To revert to the default column view, click Restore Defaults in the Add/Remove Columns dialog box.

  • Visual Effects

    Click Visual Effects to set the visual effects to be always on, never on, or automatic. Use the visual effects setting to configure the way that the Transporter wizards appear. If you notice your connection is slow when using wizards, you can turn off the visual effects for better performance. Use the Automatic setting to have the Microsoft Transporter Management Console detect if your system should have visual effects on or off.

  • Customize

    Click Customize to select the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) components and snap-ins to display or hide. These settings apply to the entire MMC.
