Communications Express uses a migration script to migrates user’s Messenger Express address book data to the Address Book Server that is part of Communications Express.
Data residing in the LDAP PAB tree of Messenger Express is migrated to the address book Server LDAP PAB tree. The example below illustrates the migration process.
When User1 in the domain siroe.com has an entry in PAB, such as Entry1 that needs to be migrated, the entry is located in the PAB tree under ou=User1 as shown in Figure 7–2.
After migration, the newly created Address Book Server Entry is added to the Address Book Server tree under o=siroe.com, piEntryID=Entry 1 as shown Figure 7–3.
The migration utility migrates all the data from PAB of Messenger Express to Address Book of Communications Express when the user logs in for the first time. However, once data is migrated to Address Book, new contacts or groups created using Messenger Express will not be shown in the Address Book of Communications Express. The reverse is also true.
