Migrator for Sametime

Simple Sametime migrations to Microsoft Lync

Receive pre-migration assessments, centralized project management, and task automation.

Migrator for Sametime offers in-depth pre-migration assessments, centralized project management and task automation. Because user contacts are migrated with complete accuracy, end users will not need to rebuild or reorganize their contact lists in the new environment.

Migrator for Sametime is included with the purchase of Notes Migrator for Exchange.

Features

  • Complete Control- Keeps you in control of your migration with a centralized Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in. The MMC shows all migration steps, the configuration settings per user and user migration status.
  • Pre-migration discovery— Identifies all users as well as their contacts and properties and reports on potential issues before migrating.
  • Web-based reporting— Provides up-to-the-minute reports and at-a-glance reports of project progress. With Migrator for Sametime, you can drill down into a report for detailed information on the status of each project, even down to the individual user.
  • Simplified mapping—Maps Sametime users to Active Directory (AD) accounts by matching a user attribute from the Domino server to one in AD.
  • PowerShell-enabled—Allows you to use the PowerShell command line or PowerGUI™, a free graphical user interface and script editor, to perform tasks. The tool also includes a PowerPack: pre-defined PowerShell scripts for creating and running migration jobs quickly and easily.
  • Flexible deployment—Enables you to control when users receive Lync functionality.
  • High-fidelity migration—Accurately replicates contact lists, including external contacts, group names, and the hierarchy of nested groups.
  • Anytime scheduling—Enables you to schedule migration tasks to run when they cause minimal impact to end users.
  • Simple administration—Saves you time by automating administrative jobs such as user mapping and group creation and sends alerts upon the success or failure of each task.
  • Migration assessment—Enables you to test settings prior to the migration without making changes to production servers.
