Migrator for Sametime

Simplify migration from Lotus Sametime to Microsoft Lync

Simplify your migration from Lotus Sametime to Microsoft Lync Server with Migrator for Sametime. The tool provides detailed pre-migration assessments, centralized project management and task automation. User contacts are migrated with complete accuracy so end users will not need to rebuild or reorganize their contact lists, mitigating potential downtime.

And if you were already considering our Notes Migrator for Exchange offering, Migrator for Sametime comes included in the package!

Features

  • Complete control: Stay 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: Identify all users as well as their contacts and properties. It reports on users with contacts above and below the contact limit and those with nested groups, so you know which may present problems during the migration. This can be scheduled to run automatically or on-demand.
  • Web-based reporting: View the project status at a glance and provides up-to-the-minute reports. You can drill down within the migration status report for detailed information on the status of each project, even down to the individual user. Reports can be e-mailed or exported to XML, html, or other data formats.
  • QuickMap: Map Sametime users to Active Directory (AD) accounts by matching a user attribute from the Domino server to one in AD. If you previously used Notes Migrator for Exchange, the data collected during that migration can be reused to map Sametime users to AD.
  • PowerShell-enabled: Use the PowerShell command line or PowerGUI™, a free graphical user interface and script editor, to perform tasks. It also includes a PowerPack: pre-defined PowerShell scripts for creating and running migration jobs quickly and easily.
  • FlexEnable: Control when users receive Lync functionality. During this process, SIP addresses are automatically generated for users. You can use a small group of accounts as a pilot.
  • High-fidelity migration: Accurately replicate contact lists, including external contacts, group names, and the hierarchy of nested groups, in Lync.
  • Anytime scheduling: Schedule migration tasks to run when they cause minimal impact to end users
  • Simplified administration: Automate manual administrative tasks, including user mapping and group creation, and sends notifications indicating their success or failure.
  • Minimal productivity loss: Save an average of 30 minutes per user because their contact lists are automatically migrated without rebuilding.
  • Migration assessment: Test settings prior to the migration without making changes to production servers. This assessment alerts them to any errors or failures that might occur during an actual migration
