I am looking at upgrading a customer from groupwise 6 on netware 6 SBS to Groupwise 8 on a soon to be installed OES2 server. I've found articles about the upgrade process for 6.5 to 8, but nothing on 6. Also, I can't do the simplest upgrade method of upgrading to 8 on the old server and then doing the DBCopy approach, as GW8 and Netware6 aren't compatible. Does anyone have any suggestions on the correct upgrade path? Is it as simple as copying over the whole directory structure and then performing an install from the OES2 box?
Also, are the GW6 clients going to be compatible in the interim between now and when I can get them all upgraded to 8?
