Move GW 6.5 users to new GW 7 server
I currently have an incident open with Novell, but I'd like to get a second
opinion. We have encountered problems moving users from our GW 6.5.4 server
(running on NW 6) to our GW 7 server (running on OES Linux, one node of a
two-node cluster). At some point in the move process the Primary (GW 7)
domain corrupts and we have to do a Recover, Rebuild, or Replace Primary
with Secondary (we have a Secondary GW 7 domain, thank goodness! That's one
lesson that was pounded into my head at the GW Advisor conference) to fix
Novell support jumped me through some hoops and has no...Move USERS to NEW Groupwise System (new Tree/Server)
I'm currently running a GW6.0sp3 on NW4.11sp9 on a low end hardware.
I have new hardware on which I have installed GW6.5sp2 on NW6.5SP2.
Both servers have different tree,server,context names and Groupwise
How to move users?
TID's have explained between move to different domains, po's, nds tree
but not Groupwise System.
Please help me.
You can't. Not without TREMENDOUS work.
Don't do this unless you have a good reason. Just UPGRADE the copy of the gw
system and graft into the new tree.

Running GW 5.5.5 on NW 5.1, single PO and Domain, about 108 users. I have
read all the posts in here going back a few months regarding the
upgrade/migration/graft of 5.5 to 6.5, one thing I did not come across
though was the problem of having a new Tree/IP address and such, during
the process. Is this possible? I already have the new tree setup ( 2
servers clustered) running NW6.5 if I follow the procedures mentioned
beforehand about moving the directory structure from 5.5 to 6.5 and then
startup 6.5 to upgrade the .db's to 6.5 will this also allow me to do any

We have a new SBS6.5 server with GW6.5 installed. Would like to know
the procedure to get the data, address books, etc from the old server
into the new servers system.
This new server in the same tree as the existing setup ?
If so, delete the GW system you've installed so far on the new server,
move the old GW directories across, reinstall the 5.5 agents, and get
the system working, then do an inplace upgrade to GW6.5

I was told to move a GroupWise data base to a new edirectory
All I had to do is copy the data DOMAIN and PO from the old server to
new server, and then merge and graph
Three quick QUESTIONS ?
1. Does the edirectory structure have to be exactly the same as the
(tree name, container names, etc..)
2. Do I have to have all the groupwise users all ready into the
tree, before i merge and graph?
3. Is there a good TID or TIDS someone can recommend to perform this
Not sure on how to graph...

I would like to upgrade my GW6.5 to GW7.
The old (current) box has NetWare 6.0 sp5 and is running GW 6.5.2.
I am hoping to setup a new server with NetWare 6.5 sp7 and install GW 7
on it and transfer over all of the mailboxes.
The webaccess will be upgraded as well.
What is the best/recommended way to do this?
Is it possible to keep the old server live, transfer over mailboxes,
disable gw on the old server, enable it on the new sever, and transfer
over the mailboxes again adding in any messages that were missed after
the first transfer?

What is the best way to move the Groupwise Postoffice to a new server?
Running GW6.5 on Netware sbs6.0, purchased new hardware and will
install Netware 6.5 on it. Would prefer not to do a server migration
if possible, tried that in the past and right at the point the
migration was copying over the nds information, it had problems and
failed and left a new server with no nds and an old server with a fried
nds (fortunately I did a backup prior) but I would rather not go that
route again and just see if we can do a copy over to the new server and
graft using console one. What steps are ...Moving Groupwise to a new system with a new Groupwise domain name
I am in the process of moving an existing GW system to a new Groupwise
server. The client did not like the existing GW domain name so a new one has
been created on the new server. The server name, IP address and GW domain
will have different names.
I have created the new GW domain in a new context (both old and new are in
the same tree) with the MTA and POA and everything comes up on the new
I have configured link configuration on each server to see each other. One
problem I have is that either MTA sees the other domain as closed. I think I
just need to change the I...Moving 5.5 system to new server
I believeI understand the posts and TIDs explaining moving a 5.5 post
to a new server in the same tree by copying the necessary files and
basically changing the needed references on the original server to
point to the address/location of the new server. If I am correct this
process leaves the actual groupwise program files (nlms etc) on the
server and Groupwise is actually still running on the original server
simpy pointing to the new location of the data. If this is true how
more work is it to get groupwise loading and running from the new
server s...Moving Groupwise 5.5 to new server
I'm in the process of doing a migration from Groupwise 5.5 to Groupwise 6.5
using the migration wizard to new hardware that will be running Netware 6.5.
The new server will have the same server name and ip address as the old
My question is, I'll be copying the groupwise system to a new volume name,
from the existing server. And I noticed on the Novell support section it
said to use consoleone, but consoleone isn't used on a Groupwise 5.5 system.
Do I simply install consoleone with the groupwise admin files then change
the volume name in consoleone or do I u...Moving users from existing 6.X to new Groupwise 7 system
What's the easiest way to move users from an existing system to a new

You can't move users across systems.
All you can do is archive everything. Create a new user, use the FID
editor on the archive to match the new FID and unarchive everything.
So, with a thousand acounts, it would be problematic, to say the least,
to do this in this manner, right? If you are creating the new GW7

I am migrating a NW 5.0 server to NW 5.1 manually. The NW 5.0 server
running GW 5.5, only about 15 users. What is the most efficient way to
move/recreate the old GW 5.5 to the new server while preserving the
boxes, calendars, etc?
1.. This GW 5.5 server has connectors to two other GW 5.5 servers
a vpn connection to the branch offices.
2.. Each branch office has it's own tree and GW 5.5 server.
3.. The GWIA is located at a remote site.
4.. I am creating a new new tree for the new NW 5.1 server, as the
5.0 server is being retired.
