Default User move from one Domino domain to another

Please Login to Remove!


I have a question regarding the move of one Domino domain to another. The situation is now as follows:

Users are on server1/Domain1 and the BES is running in the same environment. Now the BES is going to be moved to Server2/Domain2. There will be a cross certification set up, and the address book of domain1 will be available in Directory Assistance in Domain2, so I guess that will work when I move the users using the Transporter Tool.

Now, in a following step all the users are moved from Domain1 to Domain2. I don't see how the BES can pick up the change, because the move is not done following an automatic process. Is the BES picking up the changes on SMTP address?? Or on Domino username? Or on document ID (Person Record)?

How does it work? Can I move these users without having the devices to be reactivated? I'm a little stuck here. So some help will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Yours is a huge task, I promise. And there will be a long downtime for sure as far as BES service is concern, so set that expectation right before you execute it. Haven't done it before but logically below are the required systematic steps.

I am assuming that your mail users are gonna stay in Domain1 and you are moving your BES server to Domain2.

(1) Take your BES offline
(2) Disable all BES services and take out NBES from ServerTasks on Notes.INI.
(3) Load only your Domino server on the BES computer
(4) Perform the Domino server move from Domain1 to Domain2.
(5) Ensure all AdminP jobs for the server move is completed sucessfully
(6) Ensure Directory Assistance it is working proper. Confirm this by command show xdir.
(7) Ensure the BES server is able to trace all mail servers in Domain1 (back and forth traces)
(8) Ensure Domino mail flow is okay between mail servers in the 2 Domains (use Notes client).
(9) Create a test Notes mail account on the BES and test out mail flow between BES and the mail servers in Domain1.
(10) Runs through KB17724 for the function Change Directory Server.
(11) Enable all BES services, load BES and verify all working.

Link: KB17724-BlackBerry Enterprise Server is unable to initialize IBM Lotus Domino Foreign Domain users at startup

This is a huge 10 major tasks for one good long migration process. I would recommend you to factor in delays in between some of them. Good luck!

OK. Thank you very much. It seems I need more than 1 day to install the BES and make it work, it seems.
