I have a new server running Netware 6.5 with Groupwise 8 installed but none of the agents are running. We currently have Groupwise 5.5EP in operation. I would like to set up the Groupwise 8 server up in a testing environment before taking it live. I have made a copy of the domain and post office files. Can I take the new server and connect it to a workstation(different tree and separate wire) and drop the 5.5 files into the new GW8 and test it and then when we are ready to actually do the cut over can I copy the files again and drop then in to go live? I guess I am not sure if I can drop those files in twice without corrupting something.

Any suggestions?
