    Migrate from GW 6.5 to 8

    Is there a GroupWise Server Migration Utility for the versions stated above?

    We have GW6.5 running on NW 6.0 and want to update to GW8 on a Windows 2008 Server.

    Can you tell me where to get or buy a utility to do the purpose?

    Thanks for any help.

    Regards,

    I'm trying to find out if the existing migration utility also works for
    GW8 or if it's going to be updated.

    You'll have to do that manually as the migration utility is only for
    moving to Linux.

    No utility for this. You have to first either upgrade and then move, or
    move and then upgrade. GW 8 is not support on NetWare 6.0, so you are
    better to "move" it first, and then upgrade it.

    Do you have a guide on this in pdf form? If you have one, where can i get it?

    I also need a guide to migrate gw6.5 on Windows 2000 to gw8 on Windows 2003. I hope you have it also. Much better if i could migrate it to gw8 on Windows 2008.

    Thanks for the help!

    I don't specifically have a manual for moving GW from one server to another.
    My GW7 Upgrade Guide had a chapter on moving GroupWise which was an
    "overview" of how to do it, but it's not a step-by-step guide by any means.
    I'm working on a more comprehensive moving guide, but it won't be ready til
    after the first of the year.

    I've done this several times from GW6 on NW6 to OES2 Linux on SLES.

    I copied everything manually, then ran servantsalamand (google it) to manually change the case on everything because the chcase.pl script never seems to recurse directories like it is supposed to. I put the PO/DOM files in the standard GW/Linux directories, then essentially extended the schema, created a new system, grafted the objects and installed the GW agents, etc. Make sure ConsoleOne has the new path for the DOM/PO and that the cfg files are updating, if not make the changes manually.

    Before starting you change the path and make sure NCP is running, but I think that's all in the manual upgrade guide, make sure the dc files are the new ones, and make sure your.vew files are also copied from the CD/ISO file to the standard location.

    Maybe it was just me, but the last BETA install ahd all kinds of issues, especially with GWCAL, I think it's flaky.
