Basically I am migrating GW 7.1 from NW 5.1 to NW 6.5.5 via Migration
8.1. Since this is GroupWise only server, I could care less about the
trustee rights, only a handful of admins have rights to the file system on
the source server. User access to the post office is client/server only.

Is it possible to skip the trustee backup / restore and just do the file
copy? I could then give the admins rights after the files are copied and
the server identity is switched?

I am on the fence whether this is a GW install-setup or NW install-setup,
I will post in both.
