7. Removing Global Settings Tree from the System Container
When you are sure that the migration was successful, remove the original global settings tree from the System container.
This step must not be performed until all server DN references and all user DN references have been modified.
Using the Global Settings Migration Tool to Move to Configuration Container
If you deployed Live Communications Server 2005 with Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Office Communications Server 2007 with global settings in the root domain System container and you experience performance issues, you can use the Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 Global Settings Migration Tool to migrate to the Configuration container.
For Live Communications Server 2005 with SP1, you can use this procedure only after you apply Windows update provided in Knowledge Base article 911996. Without the update, Live Communications Server 2005 does not support storing global settings in the Configuration container. For more details, see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 911996 "Description of the update for Live Communications Server 2005: February 10, 2006, rereleased July 11, 2006," at .
If you also plan to upgrade to Office Communications Server 2007 R2, you must migrate the global settings before you upgrade. Once you upgrade to the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Active Directory schema, you can no longer use the Global Settings Migration tool to migrate your global settings.
You can run any of the following steps in read-only test mode by appending the /Check parameter to the MigrateOcsGlobalSettings command. This parameter prints the status of target objects and properties without making updates.
If any of the following steps fails to complete successfully due to network, replication, or permission issues, you can rerun the step until it completes successfully.
Before you begin the migration process, use the Office Communications Server snap-in to stop all Office Communications Server services on all Office Communications Servers.
