My PST migration Wish List
Outlook 2007 | 2010 | 2013 with EV Outlook Addin 10.0.4.1189
Roughly 15,000 PSTs - 10TB
I know there are various methods of migrating PSTs that we can utilize with EV. Our primary hurdle is that the majority of our PSTs are on network home directories, on DFS shares. I've read ad nauseum why EV can't / won't migrate these PSTs, although this forum write-up offers some optimism.
(It's kind of the story of my EV life. Our home directories were first on NetWare which we all know won't work - ever. So after a successful homedir migration to Windows/NTFS/DFS, I learn that EV doesn't like DFS either. Sigh - I digress...)
We started our migration using EVPM only. Although it works as advertised, there is simply too much required user intervention for it to succeed.
I realize that a successful PST migration initiative will probably utilize a combination of client-side, server-side, EVPM and the wizard. May I ask for suggestions on how to accomplish these needs?
- First priority is to migrate PSTs located on home directories on DFS shares.
- As little user intervention as possible.
- We are moving content - not shortcutting. I need all PSTs migrated to fall into the user's Vault, under \PST Migrations.
- We do have multi-user machines, so the client-side migration behavior of searching the entire local disk, and migrating those PSTs to the Vault of the user presently logged on, cannot happen!
Any advice would be enormously appreciated.
