Exchange Migrator 1.x
Exchange Migrator 2.x
The free/busy data is stored in two places:
- Within the user's mailbox.
- In the "Schedule + Free/Busy" public folder.
Exchange Migrator (EM) will migrate free/busy information within the mailbox, however, it does not migrate the Schedule + Free/Busy public folder. EM currently migrates the free/busy time in the mailbox for each migrated user. After migration you will be able to view your own free/busy time, however, the ability to view the free/busy time of others is stored in the Schedule + Free/Busy public folder, which currently is not migrated directly by EM.
As each user logs into the new Exchange environment, Outlook will synchronize the free/busy time in the mailbox with the free/busy time in the public folder. This means that over time, as people log in, you will begin to see the free/busy time for other users.
Added support for migrating the Schedule + Free/Busy public folder is being considered for a future release of EM.
Calendar appointments and meetings will be migrated; however, EM will not migrate or synchronize free/busy status for other people to see. If a migrated user's free/busy information does not become available, it may be necessary to run Outlook.exe with the /CleanFreeBusy switch for that mailbox.
For more information on how to use the command line switch with Outlook.exe please see the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
