We are planning a migration from a groupwise environment on SLES9SP3/OESSP2 to an environment that is outside of eDirectory altogether.

Does this mean:

* I cannot use NSS
* I cannot use DBCOPY to migrate

My eDirectory tree uses 32-bit SUSE servers. Since these GW servers will not be in the tree, does that mean that I should be safe creating 64-bit SLES10SP2 servers?

Oh, we are also a VMware ESX shop and our GW environment uses VMFS.

If I cannot use DBCOPY's ncpfs command option, is there another way (other than NFS) that I can use DBCOPY, or does anyone else have a migration technique (perhaps using VMware) that has been tested?

I appreciate it!
