I'd like to do a server migration that is mostly just to get new
hardware in place of a 7-yr-old server. This is Groupwise 8 on Netware
6.5SP8, with the intent to *eventually* move to OES, but not during this

Instead of a normal server migration, though, I was thinking of building
a new server with a new name, then moving everything-Groupwise over.

Does anyone see any pitfalls with this? Would it be better to do a
standard migration instead and then change the server name?

I have the Portlock software for this migration, which should give more
flexibility, although I haven't used it before.


Would also appreciate any suggestions as to how I can keep people off
the server while I do the migration.
