This topic explains how to migrate applications from Lotus Domino to Windows SharePoint Services by using the Transporter Management Console or the Transporter Management Shell.

Before You Begin

Verify that the Lotus Notes client installed on the computer running Transporter can access the applications on the Lotus Domino server identified as the Domino Application server. The Notes ID file associated with the local Lotus Notes client must have Reader or higher access in the application's access control list (ACL).

To perform these procedures, the account you use must be delegated Full Control Administrator role in Windows SharePoint Services and read access rights to Active Directory directory service for the domain where the applications will be migrated.

  1. In the Transporter Management Console, click Migrate and then select Applications.

  2. Identify the Lotus Domino server that is currently hosting the applications by clicking Select Domino Application Server on the Action bar and then typing in the server's hierarchical (such as Server01/Contoso) or common name (Server01) when prompted.

  3. You will be prompted to Enter Domino Credential. Type the password associated with the local Lotus Notes client, and then click OK.

  8. In the Target SharePoint site field, type the URL or name for the site where the target list is located (such as or sitename (hrinfo).

  9. In the Target SharePoint list field, type the URL for the list (such as or the listname (hrteamdiscussion) where the data will be migrated.
