We wish to migrate from Groupwise 7 running on Netware 6.5 to Groupwise 8 running on NOWS SBE 2.5.

I am seeking some advice on the best method of going about doing this.

Should we upgrade to Groupwise 8 on the existing system, prior to migrating?

Can we downgrade Groupwise on the NOWS SBE 2.5 system to 7, perform a migration, and then upgrade back to Groupwise 8?

Is a version of Groupwise 7 available for NOWS SBE 2.5?

Any help would be much appreciated.
