Installing GroupWise on a NetWare server works great. But what happens if you outgrow your server, and you perform a hardware migration and have to reinstall GroupWise agents on the new server?
I've been doing this since GroupWise 6.03 days - I put the NLMs at the same location as the Post Office database. All of our POs are in a location similar to \\server\vol1\postx - I wind up putting the NLMs in the postx folder. This way, when the server hardware needs to be replaced, I just backup and restore the VOL1 volume contents to the new server. You, of course, would have to change any server names and IP addresses as you normally would with a server migration.
This approach also makes viewing the current NLMs for GroupWise nice and tidy.
- NetWare 5.0 and up
- GroupWise 6.03 and up
