I am currently running the following:
Groupwise 8.0.1
Netware 6.5 SP8
edir 8.8.5
Groupwise volume is on a SAN - 340 GB!

I have running in the same tree (target):
OES2SP1 (fully patched)
SLES10SP2 (fully patched)
Novell Cluster Services (1.8.x - most up to date version)
Volumes are running on a SAN (currently configured EVMS, NSS)

What is the best way to move to Groupwise 8.0.1 on the target with cluster services?

Can I create Groupwise components on the target and use the move functionality in C1 to move users to the new Groupwise?

What about archive files? Some of these are upto 9 GB large!...stored on a Netware 6.5 SP8 edir 8.8.5 file server.

I looked at the docs for the Groupwise Migrate utility - the spec provided in this document is 6 GB/hour (using what hardware and network speed I don't know) We can't have e-mail down for 3 days to migrate everyone over

I look forward to hearing about some options.

Thanks in advance and Cheers,
