Hi,

I want to install a new GW8 server on a Novell Cluster Services 1.8 in a LIVE network parallel to a GW7 server. The idea is to migrate users to Groupwise 8 by dept. when we know our GW8 server is stable...could be days/weeks before migrating all users from the GW7 server.

I have a single GW703hp1 server live running (no cluster/no SAN):
Primary Domain
MTA/POA
GWIA
Web access agent
API (fax to e-mail)
WEB ACCESS WEB SERVER on W2K3


I think I have to install the Groupwise 8 server using the following method:
Secondary Domain
MTA
POA
GWIA
Web access agent
API (fax to e-mail)
WEB ACCESS WEB SERVER (W2K3) - seperate install

Am I on track with this approach - Is there anything special I need to do?

How do I ensure the GW8 server does not access the DB's on GW7 live and upgrade the DB automatically?
