This topic explains how to use the Transporter Management Console or the Transporter Management Shell to migrate Notes Groups from a Lotus Domino Directory to Active Directory directory service.

Use the first procedure listed below to migrate Notes groups to Active Directory. Use the second procedure to migrate Notes groups to Active Directory using the Transporter Management Shell.

Before You Begin

Create an import organizational unit (OU) container in Active Directory for the Notes Groups that are added during user migration.

Install a Lotus Notes 6.x or 7.x client as a “single user” on a server that is running Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. The client must have a user ID that is listed in the Domino Directory's Access Control List with Reader or higher access.

Verify that the Lotus Notes client can access the Domino Directory (names.nsf) on the Lotus Domino server identified as the Domino Directory server.

To perform these procedures, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Recipient Administrator role

  • Account Operator role for applicable Active Directory containers
