The ActiveSync Migration Client will migrate all data a user has access to via ActiveSync on a source mail server into MDaemon, so offers a good solution when migrating data from Exchange 2010 onwards or Office365 to MDaemon.The migration tool uses the ActiveSync protocol to pull data from any source server that supports ActiveSync version 14.1.Special Considerations
There are three parts to the migration.
The ASMC.exe and RemRebld.dll files are located in the \MDaemon\App directory. The ActiveSync Migration Client is a command-line tool and does not require an installation.
Command Line Parameters
To connect to the source server, the ActiveSync Migration Client uses a /InputFile parameter which points to a text file that contacts the source server’s name, user login (email address), and password to the account.
The file type used for the /InputFile parameter should be in a comma-separated value (CSV) or tab-delimited file.
The /LogFile parameter will generate a log file will be written out to a specified directory.
The /OutDir parameter to specify a preferred path if necessary. The tool will write the user’s migrated data to the \MDaemon\Data directory, by default.
There are several more parameters that are not required but can be used:
Pathnames (Strings) that have spaces present in them must be enclosed in double quotes.
/InputFile: “C:\Migration\Migration Users.txt”
Part 1 – Data Migration using the migration toolBy default, the migration will write all the migrated data to the \MDaemon\Data\DomainName directory. If you want to write the migrated data to a specified location, you’ll need to use /OutDir parameter.
If using a tab-delimited format, the syntax would contain a tab between values
Part 2 – Importing accounts into MDaemon
In this example, the /ImportFile:C:\MDaemon\App\UserImport.csv string in our command line will create a CSV file in the \MDaemon\App folder. This file is used to import the users into MDaemon.
Part 3 – Rebuild the reminders.dat file
This step is required if you want the migrated calendar and event items to have MDaemon’s server-based reminder emails sent to clients. This is useful if a user is using an IMAP client in some situations where they do not have access to their calendar or task information. This has no bearing on altering the behavior of any ActiveSync Client or CalDav client as for its display of reminders.
The ActiveSync migration tool will only sync fields that are available in the ActiveSync 14.1 protocol. The following data is not migrated from WorldClient webmail or other servers.
