We are planning on upgrading a mirrored NW 5.0 SP6a GW 5.5 server to a

I am assisting a client with a migration from NW 5.0 w/ GW 5.5 to new
server hardware (will be replacing the old server) running NW 6.5 with GW
6.5 via the 7.1 Migration Wizzard.
I am still a little unsure of the best migration path. I planned on
migrating straight from NW 5 and GW 5.5 to NW 6.5 and GW 6.5. However,
other people indicate that it is not a clean migration. Furthermore, the
documentation states that I will have to re-install GW6.5 to update the
NLMs on the Target after the migration. Won't this overwright my
information store? Perhaps I am supposed to m...Upgrade 5.5.5 to 6.5
I'm wondering if I can upgrade my whole backend (MTA & POA's) and then
gradually (pick and choose) which clients I want to switch over to the

says yes, but to watch out for 1) the renamed Sent Items folder and 2)
D109 errors opening mail. Has anyone got the #2) error and is it very

I have a single tree (TRINET) with 3 Netware 6.5 SP4 servers (INTL, ENV,

DO sitting in it's OU on the tree. It is NOT providing any services such
as file/print. The server named EMAIL is running GroupWise 5.5 EP SP5.
We have a Linux based web server (apache) at a remote site (co-lo)

Before we upgrade to 6.5, we obviously need a backup.
Will it surfice to shutdown all GW Agents and manually copy the domain
and po directories? If the Upgrade fails, can you copy the backup back
and start over?
Do you have to use gwbackup?
Any other gotcha's in this upgrade?
Thanks in advance.
I woulod start with a DS health check since you will extend schema (TID
10060600). Then a top down rebuild of GW.
Yes backing up the Domain and PO directories are the way to go.
Copying is fine.
If there is a failure during the upgrade you will have to copy the
