What would be the easiest and quickest way to create a copy of our Groupwise
system (in particular document management)?

Unfortunately we are moving away from Groupwise DM (not my choice) so we
require a lab environment, to test migrating to another system. We
especially need to keep our super long domain and post office name, so that
we know the migration technique will handle it.

If I create a new server (with different server and tree name), restore
GroupWise files from backup, and then fire it up...should that do the trick?

I'd then like to delete some libraries & Doc Storage Areas (for
confidentiality reasons) , so we can just leave a couple of test libraries
specifically for the test migration.

I also plan to delete some user accounts, so that those mailboxes aren't
