Unable to Migrate OCS IMAP Folders - Failed to Open OCS10G Mail Store Connection (Doc ID 1060172.1)

Last updated on APRIL 09, 2018

Applies to:

Beehive - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
***Checked for relevance on 15-Oct-2013***


Note:  Beehive is no longer in premier support.  If you are moving away from Oracle Collaboration Suite (OCS) it is advisable to look for another migration path as Beehive is at end of life.

The Beehive migration tool BMT-UPGRD (OCS to Beehive) is failing to connect to the OCS source system to extract users.

The following error is logged in the mig.log:
