How do I set up an admin account on Lotus Notes or Lotus Domino server?

A single administrative account will be used to migrate all mailboxes. This means there is no need to specify a password for each user's mailbox.

In order to set up an administrator account on the Domino server, proceed as follows:

  1. Open Notes/Domino Administrator.
  2. Select the server where the mailboxes are located.
  3. Go to the Files tab.
  4. Select the folder containing the mailboxes and right-click on it.
  5. Go to the menu to manage access control.
  6. Select the user to be used to perform the migration.
  7. Grant this account sufficient rights to access the mailboxes.

NOTE: The administrator account will need to have the following included for permissions applied to each nsf file being migrated.

Access: Manager

Delete Documents: Enabled (This is not a default permission, and must be manually selected, or your Domino server will run out of space very quickly.)
