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.

Nov...Move users from GW6.5 System to New GW 7 Sytem on new server
We have a Tree (CBM) with a GW 6.0 System,1 Domain, 1 Po.
We hace set a new server with a new NDs Tree (MU) and have loaded a fresh
copy of GW 7 with a newsystem name (cbmmail) and 1 Domain and 1 PO.
What is the best way of imorting the Gw 6.0 users and resources into the
new system. I haven't been able to find any reference for this.
Merge the two systems and then move the users. You would have been
much MUCH better off just upgrading the system you had.
The best way of all is to stop GW. copy the domain and PO structures
to the new server, and then do an in-pl...Moving Users to a new Post Office
I am planning to move users in five small post offices to a single new
Post Office for consolidation. I have read TID# 10067427 and the
GroupWise 6.5 Documentation. My POA's have been upgraded since the days
of WordPerfect Office 4.0 version by version to what they are today, GW
6.5.2 POA's. They have never had any real DB maintenance with GWCHECK
over the years. They function fine, but I'm sure they are not as clean
or streamlined as they could be. My question are these: What would be
the "best practice" to ensure 207 individual user moves wi...Moving IDM3 to new netware server
I am glad I tried this in testing first because I think I hosed up my
server. I am trying to move IDM3 from one netware server to another. The
server I want to move it too is in the same Tree and has the needed
What I tried to do first is simply assign the driver set this new server--I
kept getting some odd imanager errors. So I abandoned that and simply added
the new server to the driver set in Designer and deployed. That didnt seem
to work either.
What I *thought* was supposed to happen was when I assign the new server to
the driver set in imanager I get prompted to co...Move user home directory to new server
I want to move multiple users home direcotry to new server, the only
change is server and volume, there is no change on path.
How can I do this?
I tried NWadmin to modify multiple users, after I put in new volume and
apply the change, the path have been overwirte, and become blank. I tried
to put variable %username or %login_name, they won't pick it up.

You could use UIMPORT for this, or easier SETHOME from the JRB

Pedag...Moving PO and user mailboxes to new server
Currently we are using GW5.5.5 on a NW5.0 server with one PO, one MTA, one
GWIA for 70 users. We purchased a new server and installed NW6.5 SP1.1b.
We will be installing GW6.5 to the new server and want to know the easiest
way to move all of the user mailboxes (messages, address book, appts, etc.)
onto the new system. We are trying to avoid loading GW5.5 on the new
server, copying over the data and then upgrading to GW6.5.
We are planning on creating all 70 users on the new system and only want to
"import" the users' GW data. What is the best method for completing th...how2 move user to new ifolder2 server
Have 2 servers running netware with ifolder2. Users are on old server.
How do I move them to the new server? Do I just go into ifolder
manager and change their default server to the new one? Or is there
something else I'm supposed to do?

Has your problem been resolved? If not, you might try one of the following options:
...Move User home directories to new volume on same server
We would like to move our USER home directories from one NSS volume to
another NSS volume on the same server. We have used the 3rd party NWCOPY
utility in the past for large inter/intra server file copies and it seems to
work good. Since NWCOPY allows us to pre-copy the data in smaller chunks at
a convenient time and then do a smaller delta/synch copy when the final
cutover is planned, we likely plan on using this utility in combination with
some other utilities like HOMES to change the eDir home directory attributes
and file rights.

Moved a 70GB GroupWise 7.0.1 system from a NetWare 6.5 w/SP6 to a new
NetWare 6.5 w/SP6 server, all seemed ok until... we tried opening messages
with various users and many messages returned a dreaded C05D error and the
POA complained that it was missing MSGxx.DB files in the OFMSG folder of
Extra info: the entire po was copied to the new server with no files
missing, same number of bytes. All links and ip addresses for POA and MTA
were adjusted in Console One to point to the new server and the
appropriate .poa and .mta config files adjusted as well. Ran gwcheck...Move (copy) users to new domain on different server
I need to fundamentally *copy* users from one post office/domain on a
Netware server, to another completely different domain/po on a
completely different server at another site, so that their *calendar*
data as well as mail all exists in both locations.
I've tried 14 different ways to do this & can't figure out how to get it
Does anyone have any thoughts at all? It's particularly critical that I
have *all* the calendar data for each user in both places. Complicating
it, the first PO/domain is on a Netware server and the second PO/domain
is on a Wi...Web Admin Tool--Security--Create New Users
I try to make a new user entry and in the admin tool and it gives me the error that the password needs to be at least 7 letters and contain at least one non-alphanumeric #. I've tried various passwords that conform to this and it still gives me this error. I don't know what the problem is?? Does anyone else?
A simple password that conforms to this would be:

would appreciate if someone can step me through how to achieve above. I
have checked all Novell tid and discussion forum and could not find steps

and to netware 6.5 sp4 server.
