Migration of contact list from Microsoft LCS\OCS to IBM
buddy list from IBM Sametime to Microsoft LCS\OCS:
When you take
decision to migrate your users from Sametime to LCS\OCS,
the most important piece of migration is migration of
buddy list from Sametime to LCS\OCS.
First step towards
migration is introduction of LCS\OCS server(s) in the
Active directory. After that you can detach the user
from IBM Sametime and enable it for LCS\OCS.
Next step is to
ensure that you migrate the buddy list as well. There is
no tool from Microsoft to do so! But fortunately you can
use third party tool to do migrate the buddy list from
Sametime to LCS\OCS.
One tool that I am
aware of is “Instant buddy list migrator” from Instant
technology. This tool helps you
preserve your groups and group memberships as you
migrate from Sametime to LCS/OCS.
Instant Buddy List Migrator helps you in the process of
migrating from Sametime to LCS/OCS by automating the
migration of your Sametime buddy lists and eliminating
the need to rebuild all your groups and group
It also helps you during the period of co-existence;
Instant Buddy List Migrator’s integration with Session
Manager from Convergence enables Sametime users and LCS/OCS
users to belong to single, unified buddy lists so they
can communicate seamlessly across platforms.
