IBM Mail Onboarding Manager – Quick Overview

One of the other technologies I get to play with are the on-boarding tools to IBM SmartCloud. If you didn’t know, the only way that you used to be able to onboard to the cloud with mail file transition from Domino was to engage a BP who has successfully passed the certification.

These tools are known as Onboard Planning Tool (OPT), and Onboard Transition Tool (OTT).

IBM has now release a self service tool called Mail On-boarding Manager. I refuse to call it MOM.

To use the Mail Onboarding Manager, you still need to do all of the steps to setup a Hybrid environment.

More information on the Tool can be found here.

Below is a quick Video overview.

If you like to learn more, my colleague Nick Young and I will be presenting at Inform 2015.

Hope to see you there!

Quick Tip – Name your console..

The guys I work with are full of good tips.

I’d always wondered how to do this, as I thought it was some sort of Developer jiggery-pokery.

Most environments I work in have a Development environment, and a Production environment.

Quite often, I get lost. Am I in Prod or Dev? Especially with cryptic server names.

Quick way to fix this is to Name your Consoles.

  • Logon to your ISC.
  • Expand System Administration > Task Management
  • Select Console Identity.
  • Type in the Console Prod
  • And hey presto…You know where you are..

You’re welcome.
