XFOR: Forum Password Security Lost After Collabra Migration

Collabra Share has the ability to set access passwords on individual forums. When these forums are migrated into Microsoft Exchange Server, these access passwords are not preserved.


The Migration Wizard imports Collabra Share forums as public folders into Microsoft Exchange Server. Exchange does not set any type of access password on a public folder. Exchange sets access permissions. During the migration phase, the access permissions will be set for all folders based on the rights of the logged-on Windows NT account when migration is performed.

You will be presented with the access permissions that will be used for all the public folders that will be created. The Migration Wizard has no method of setting access permissions on a single folder basis. However, you can set access permissions on individual folders using the Exchange Administrator program after migration is complete.

This behavior is by product design.
