We are planning to move our GW 7.0.3 post office database and POA off Netware 6.5 onto SLES 10 SP2, virtualizing on VM ESX. To minimize overhead on VM, I like to build a very basic SLES 10 server to host the PO.

1. Install SLES 10 SP2 with only Server Base system option and runlevel 3, nothing else.
2. Use EXT3 file system for groupwise. Is H-tree limitation fixed in SP2 or must use the "controversal" Reiser file system?
3. Use GroupWise server migration utility for the PO migration.
4. Run groupwise as daemon services. Any benefit using GUI mode? Would I able to maintenace groupwise using command lines.

Will this plan works? Thanks in advance for any suggestion.
