I've been asked to determine how best to upgrade an aging GroupWise 5.2.6
system on NetWare 6.0 SP5 to GroupWise 7.0.2 on Windows Server 2003. Oh,
and the Windows Server 2003 will be running as a VM on a VMware ESX server.

There is only one GroupWise domain, one POA, one MTA, one GWIA. I have the
Danita Zanre GroupWise 7 upgrade guide and I'm familiar with upgrading
GroupWise but almost always staying on NetWare servers. I relalize I will
need to install eDirectory on the Windows 2003 server as the older NetWare
server will likely not be around for very long after GroupWise is moved.

If anyone has attempted anything like this before, I'd appreciate hearing
about how you did it.

There only about 100 uses in this GroupWise Post Office.
