There are several scenarios when Migration Wizard for Lotus Notes will match on existing AD objects. There are 3 types of objects in AD that MigWiz will search for:
There is also concept of “hard” and “soft” match
Here is simple table describing matching objects and criteria:
Matching on AD account object
shortName > samAccountName
FullName > CN
Migration Wizard performs hard match first. When match found AD object will be used to perform migration. If no match found Migration Wizard will create new Mailbox user.
In addition Migration Wizard will search for Contacts with matching proxy addresses. If such Contacts found they will be deleted and directory data merged to either existing matched object or to newly created Mailbox user.
There are six scenarios Migration Wizard will need to deal with. In each scenario there is logic that Migration Wizard will follow. Let’s go through them.
