    Hi! I’am migrating Outlook 2003 PST file to GW 7. The file is around 137 mb and contains around 8000 items (appointements, contacts and emails). The CPU, network bandwidth and harddrive are working properly without sign of bottleneck. Even the GW server is near idle.

    Any idea?

    Also, when importing contacts, it seems to have a problem when the contact “book” is 3 three down in the path. No contacts are in the imported contact book.

    Any idea for this one too?

    Thank you all.

    Importing large number of contacts can slow down GroupWise process. It is a known issue to GroupWise. To avoid the slowdown, you can try to import emails & calendar items then contacts later.

    >Also, when importing contacts, it seems to have a problem when the contact “book” is 3 three down in the path. No contacts are in the imported contact book.

    Could you provide more information about “the contact “book” is 3 three down in the path”?

    Please check your MAPI configuration, the text below copied from the Personal Outlook Migration help.

    quote:


    There are well known MAPI configuration issues when running both the GroupWise client and Outlook on the same workstation. Prior to migration, prevent Outlook using the Novell MAPI default settings by configuring the Outlook client to prompt on startup for the MAPI profile to be used.

    You can configure this behavior in the Outlook client under Options | Mail Services | Prompt for a profile to be used. On Windows 2000 or above, you can also set this option by using the Windows Control Panel | Mail | Show Profiles, “When starting Microsoft Outlook, use this profile:” Prompt for a profile to be used. When Outlook starts and prompts you for the profile, select the appropriate one to connect to your Outlook data.


    Once the above MAPI configuration defined, start the Outlook client and review the address books, close the Outlook client. Start the GroupWise client, make sure the address books are related to GroupWise then start the convertion process.

    Yeah, I just read back “it seems to have a problem when the contact “book” is 3 three down in the path.” and it’s not clear at all.

    OK, In Outlook, the user has created a Address book. In this address book, there is 4 level of “folders” or address books. Here is an example:

    Address book 1
    >>Address book 2
    >>>>>Address book 3
    >>>>>>>>>>Address book 4

    In address book 4, the imporatation creates the name of the address book but it remains empty. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    We have almost 30 users to migrate from an Exchange environnement. Do you recommand, to use this utility or to move to something stronger like Novell GW Migration utility for Exchange?

    Thank You.

    Does the “Address book 1”, “Address book 2”, “Address book 3” contain any contacts or they also empty?

    Free Formativ Personal Microsoft Outlook Migration is designed to migrate data from each user. In order to migrate bulk users, you have to run this solution on each user’s account to migrate data from Outlook. However, we will recommend to use other tools which is designed to migrate data from Exchange server or PST file.
