In a month I am going to have to pull 350 mail files into Binary Tree's CMTe. I have downloaded the File Import Tool from the Binary Tree site. If you search the Binary Tree Support knowledge base for "CMTe: How to easily migrate a stand alone NSF File to PST file" you will find the database and instructions.
The way the BT tools is designed, you select one NSF and it is pulled into the User Import Tool . Each time the file path starts at the Notes data directory. So for each file I would have to navigate the directory structure. If I just pulled in a file from Archive2, there is a reasonably good chance that I might want to pull the next file from the same subdirectory.
While I was tweaking the code, I figured that it would be easy to handle the selection of multiple files. So I created "JV's Select Multiple Files".
The first thing that we need to do is to get the NSFs loaded into the Migration Control Centre.
Launch Notes and open the following database/application
Your mileage my vary the location and the filename
Pretty simple. One view
Click on the JV’s Select Multiple Files button
You will be prompted for a Description
This will be used to create a new category. In the screen shot above you can see the category created by this selection.
The File Selector dialog will open in the Notes data directory.
The next time you run this agent the last directory that you looked at will be displayed.
Select the files you would like to import – Click then Shift Click or Control Click
You will see a message like the one above. Click Yes
Say Yes to the next user.
After the last user in your selection you will see the following
We can continue to select NSFs. If you answer “Yes” - you will be prompted for a new Category and you can move to a different directory to import the files.
When you are done select “No”
From here on I deviate from the Binary Tree proceedure. I have a copy of the Domino Directory from the customer and I want to use it to build the Address Translation Table. So I want to copy the entries from the File Import Tool into the Domino Directory and then import them into CMTe.
Select the files that you want to import and copy them to the clipboard
Now paste them into the Directory
Import files into CMTe
Now we click the button
Select the file that we want and click OK
Now just run this as a regular migration.
