Migrating Forums with Multiple Language Contents

Because Microsoft Exchange Server provides support for multiple languages, you can use the Migration Wizard to migrate data in Collabra forums that is in multiple languages. For example, you can migrate a forum containing data in English and another forum containing data in German to Microsoft Exchange Server.

Note   To migrate Collabra forums that contain data in different languages to Microsoft Exchange Server, you must run the Migration Wizard once for each language. It is easiest if the Microsoft Exchange Server computer that is used to perform the migration uses the same code page as the language used in the Collabra forum. For example, if you are migrating a French forum, the server should be a French language server. Microsoft Exchange Server uses the code page for the language that is used for the Windows NT Server software installed on the server.

If the correct code page is not installed on the Microsoft Exchange Server computer, you can edit the import file to specify the correct code page.

   To specify the correct code page

  1. Run the Migration Wizard and perform the first step in a two-step migration to create an import file (Collabra.pkl). For more information about two step migration, see "Two-Step Migration" later in this chapter.
  2. Using a text editor, edit the Collabra.pkl file to specify the code page for the language that you are migrating. For example, if you are migrating data to English, the following entry for the U.S. ANSI code page should appear at the beginning of the import file:
  3. ! CodePage
  4. Complete the migration by running the Migration Wizard and performing the second step in a two-step migration.

For information about code pages, see the Windows NT Server Resource Kit.
