​​​Are admin credentials required for Public Folder migration?​

Answer:

Yes. ​In order to properly migrate Public Folders, admin credentials are required for both the Source and the Destination.

Specifically:

At the Source:

  • Read-only access to all Public Folders is required.

At the Destination:

  • ADMIN privileges are required for the migrating "admin" account so that all fields can be set at the Destination.
  • ​​Ownership of Public Folders are required on the Destination so that new subfolders can be created.

For further details, read this article about creating an administrator account for login.

 

Note: Once you have created an account with administrative credentials, you will also need to set full permissions for Public Folders explicitly for the administrator.
