I have tested LIVE moving three mailboxes on our groupwise 8.0.1 system. 11

1. The user move from a Netware 6.5SP8/Groupwise 8.0.1 to SLES10SP2/OES2SP1/Groupwise 8.0.1 move took nine days to complete (1.8 GB mailbox).

2. The resource move (from same as above servers) took several days (a few MB large).

3. A user with a 1.5 MB mailbox from sles10sp2/oes2sp1/gw8.0.1 to another sles10sp2/oes2sp1/gw8.0.1 server took several minutes. I am now trying the same source and destination type servers again with a 300 mb mailbox user.

I opened an SR on the first issue noted as #1 above. Novell advised retrying until it finished. I did that.

Has anyone done live moves and if so what worked for you to get this working quickly and effectively? I don't want it to take days but minutes to move a mailbox.
