This quick start guide provides you with the basic information to configure CloudMigrator for a migration from Scalix. It is highly recommended that you read the application documentation in full for your platforms in order to understand all of the options available to you during a migration.
The following software should be installed on the migration workstation:
What else do I need?
- The credentials (username and password) of an administrative user in Scalix
- The name of a test account in the Scalix system that can be used for testing
- Scalix server IP address and Server Name
In order to access all data within the Scalix system, data is retrieved using both management and messaging APIs. The permissions required to use each of these are slightly different and may require configuration of a specific user to perform the migration. To read user lists from the system, a full system administrator is required. To set a user as a full system administrator, log into the Scalix Administration Console, select a user, navigate to the ‘Advanced’ tab and ensure that the ‘Is full administrator’ box is selected. The user can be either a standard or advanced user. Alongside being a full administrator, the user must also have mboxadmin rights. To set the user called ‘sxadmin to have mboxadmin rights, from a command line run the following command as root:
/opt/scalix/bin/ommodu -o sxadmin -c +mboxadmin
The path to your Scalix administration binaries may differ, please refer to your Scalix installation or system administrator for details.
The same user should be made a full system administrator and have mboxadmin rights.
It is highly recommended that users are prevented from accessing the system and the Scalix service restarted just before starting a migration. Several problems have been seen with Scalix when users have been accessing the system during migrations that can prevent migrations from completing successfully.
