I'm trying to consolidate 5 NW65Sp5 servers into a 3 node cluster of the
same OS but within a new tree. However, I'm trying to find ways to migrate
the servers gradually with minimal user disruption but since many of these
users access data from other servers in the existing tree I'm finding
difficult to come up with a clear, well thought out solution.

A tree merge operation is out of the question for the existing tree has
additional servers which will stay in place. Is there a way to migrate one
server at a time while still be able to access file shares in the existing

Any other suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
