Groupwise 5.5 to Groupwise 6.5 upgrade
I am preparing for a Groupwise 5.5 to Groupwise 6.5 upgrade and am asking
if there are any recommended procedures or best practices I should be
following. I have not been able to find much information on 5.5 to 6.5
upgrades. Any input would be appreciated. Thank-you.

...Upgrade Netware6.5.6 to 6.5.7 with GroupWise 6.5
Is there any problems that I need to know about before I apply the sp7
patch to this GroupWise server. At the present this GW server is a stand
alone server, and after a week it unloads tomcat4 which shuts down
webacc module and the users can not connect with Webacc. I have worked
on this problem for a while now, upgraded java and several others
things. I hope there won't be any problems with this patch and sp7.

After upgrading GroupWise Service Pack 2 on Netware 6, It showed that the
agents are running GroupWise 6.5.2, but when I unloaded the agents and
reloaded the agents, POA/ MTA are showing GroupWise 6.5.1
What is wrong?. Any one experienced this?.

Last night around 9pm we upgraded our Netware SBS 6.5sp4a server from
GroupWise 6.5.5 to GroupWise 6.5.6.
This morning at about 10:15am (the server starts experiencing heavy
user load around 6am) the server locked hard and had to be manually
powered off and restarted... here's the abend.
The only things I've changed between the 6.5.5 config and 6.5.6 are:
* I chose the installation option to run the POA and MTA in protected
* I enabled two blacklist sites in the POA's Access List
* I enabled Mailbox Protection in the POA
* I enabled sender validation / verif...GroupWise 5.5.5 client to GroupWise 6.5 System?
Will a GroupWise 5.5.5 client attach to a GroupWise 6.5 server okay for a
temporary period of time? IT Staff will need time to update all of the
clients manually. Want to make sure there will be no immediate loss of
function after we upgrade GroupWise 5.5.5 to 6.5...
should be ok

I currently am using GroupWise 5.5e on a Novell 4.11 server . I want to go
to GroupWise 6.5 on a Windows 2000 Server computer but I can not find any
thing that tells me how to move or migrate the database.. Has anyone done
It's pretty much just a case of copying the domain and PO directories to Windows, running the Windows agent installs and changing paths in ConsoleOne - UNLESS you have external document storage locations for DMS -that needs some extra help.

I have installed a new Small Business 6.6 Novell server on our network
and replaced the old Netware box. We had to archive our emails as we
were short of volume space on the original server. I now have 20 users
with archive folders on their local drives in Groupwise 5 format.
How do I upgrade these folders to be seen by the new Groupwise 6.6
Any suggestions would be welcome.

1. Is it possible to make the new version of Webaccess work with the
databases? I know it looks like you should be able to do this but has
anyone actually done it?
2. Also could you run the Webaccess twice on the same server, one to
the 6.5 POAs and one for 5.5, if you use a different port?

Should be fine -- SBS 6.5 and 6.6 shipped with 6.5 SP1b and then SP3
and GroupWise 6.5.4.
One thing though, why SP4 on the NW 6.5 server? I'd go with SP5 plus
the post SP5 update package.
