We have been extending our Groupwise 8 system and joined it with another set of users. As our GW system is the Primary, all my users are in the primary domain. The newer users are in a secondary domain. This creates some problems.

Best practice seems to dictate the creation of a new Primary domain (and PO?) with no users in and to demote my current primary domain to be a secondary. Thereby having two secondarys with the users, po's gwias etc and a Primary just handle the sync etc.

I understand that I can promote the secondary to be a Primary, but what affect will that have on users? Can I run this during the day or do I need exclusive access to the domains in order to do this?

Thanks in advance.
