My customer is currently running GW6 on a Novell Platform NW6. I have purchased GW8 and want to run it on MS Server 2008 x64 environment.

Where can I find the procedure for doing this as I have very little down time available to me?

Can someone guide me and inform me about any Tips, Tricks and Traps to help make this a smooth transition?

What kind of time frame are we looking as (usually) to migrate the info?

Can I run it in test mode first before going live and changing the DNS and Rev. DNS settings to the new server and/or removing said from the old server?
