Hello All,

I am planning to upgrade our GroupWise 6.5.6 single domain, single post
office system, running on NetWare 5.1 SP8, to GroupWise 7 running on
NetWare 6.5, on a new machine (faster, more disk space). All of this
will reside in the same eDirectory tree.

I plan to first migrate the existing GroupWise 6.5 system to the new
NetWare 6.5 server. After running it for a while to ensure that all is
well, I will then do an in-place upgrade to GroupWise 7.

At this point I am in need of any and all information about how to move
the existing GroupWise 6.5 system to the new server. I believe this
would be done by installing NetWare 6.5 on the new machine in
pre-migration mode, and then use the NetWare migration utility to
migrate the existing server and all its data, including GroupWise, to
the new server. Beyond that I don't know much.

Any pointers or help would be greatly appreciated.
