Trying to migrate from Groupwise 5.2 to Groupwise 5.5
My name is Pablo Vazquez.
I am trying to migrate my client�s Groupwise 5.2 system to Groupwise
(thing that I have done a lot of times in different clients) but the
domain database is so corrupt that I cannot migrate even when I have
rebuilt the base.
As they do not have any good backup of the wpdomain.db I think that my
only chance to migrate is to install the Groupwise 5.5 system on the
NDS Tree, make the Groupwise 5.2 and 5.5 coexist and then start moving
users from Groupwise 5.2 to Groupwise 5.5. The questiona are :
Is that solution possible ?

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 setup an Everyone group in Groupwise 5.2. Can someone from outside

network that is in that Everyone group get that email?
Only if you've enabled Groups on your GWIA. I honestly don't remember if
that's a feature with 5.2 or not. I know it's a feature now. By default
this feature is disabled. It's a /group switch and it goes in the

I have installed a new Groupwise 6.5 server and now need to migrate the
5.5 system to the 6.5 system. I have run the upgrade wizard on the domain
and noticed the version number went from 5.5 to 6.5 ( this is what should
happen) I then ran the wizard on the PO but can't get the PO to display
the correct version when I check it useing console1. I must be doing
something wrong, but I have done the process ( with minor changes ) and
still can't seem to get it to update the PO. Any help ????

I posted and asked where to get the latest client for 5.2.6. I was told in
the Softeare Dist Directory under win32. However when I go to the Software

my server. Must have been deleted or moved. Anyway, I cannot find it. I
downloaded the groupwise 5.2.6 upgrade file and just want to copy the files
so I will have the latest client. So I click on the copy only the files

Restore is not going as well though.
I have created a cluster resource called "restore" and am trying to make this our restore area.. except when I try to restore files here, the TSAFS yells at me (via the BEX logs) that I am trying to restore to an invalid path.. BEX support is confident that the data backed up and that BEX is trying to send the data, but TSAFS is not cooperating. So I own it..
