These are the steps we will work on to migrate everyone. In a nutshell
1) NetCentriX mail users move over first (and upgrade clients to R5)
2) NetCentriX applications second,
3) ITS last.
. New Netfinity computer name: Merlin
. Notes server id: Merlin/NetCentriX (simplification in computer / server naming convention)
* Have merlin.netcentrix.net added to DNS. (George)
. Move NCX mail users, leaving design as 4.6, and replicating with Excalibur.
. Upgrade NCX clients to R5 (your computers)
. Upgrde mail file designs to R5.
. Move all other directories and .nsfs.
. Make MX record netcentrix.net goes to merlin’s i.p.
. Mail comes into Excalibur waiting for MX record to take.
. Users replicate w/ Merlin and mail goes out of Merlin.
. When MX record switches, stop mail replication.
. Set up replication between Excalibur and Merlin for non-mail applications
. Set up ITS virtual server on Merlin.
. Submit DNS change for ITS.
. ITS replicates w/ Merlin until DNS change fully propogates.
. Redirect ITS’s own Notes server to replicate with Merlin.
. Excalibur becomes Development when verified no client activity. Renamed Frodo in the Hobbit Domain 🙂
