Full-State @Oracle Calendar Server Migration into @MSFTExchange Database Configuration


For full-state Oracle Calendar Server migrations, the Sumatra code creates a small database to store Guest responses.  Don't fret -- in contrast to our first-generation methods this one does not require you to ever open or modify the database.

The database will require you download and install the Microsoft Access Database Engine 2010 Redistributable.

For x32, install the AccessDatabaseEngine.exe.
For x64, install the AccessDatabaseEngine_x64.exe

The Sumatra code sets the database provider in the configuration XML file based upon the operating environment. 

For x32, the provider is:  Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=
For x64, the provider is: PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=

Here are the lines in the XML as setup for an x64 system.  Note we include provider “sample” lines so you can copy the provider setting appropriate to your environment.

Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=
Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=
PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=
