Before starting the Messenger Installation program, ensure that your system has been prepared for the Messenger system configuration for which you have planned. In addition to this list, ensure that the server requirements have been met.
Follow these instructions to download, install, and configure the Messenger system.

If you want to keep your archive data, you need to copy the archive files to your new 18.1 server and then run a utility to copy the data into the Messenger database or Retain:
Stop the Archive Agent on both the 18.x Messenger server and the 3.x Messenger server.
Copy the files from the store directory from your 3.x server to /var/opt/novell/messenger/aa/store on your 18.x server.
New in 18.1: In a terminal, browse to /opt/novell/messenger/bin. Run the following command to import the Archive:
./arcmigrate -a 127.0.0.1 -u root -p <database user password> -s <Messenger Service Name> -f /var/opt/novell/messenger/aa/store
The Messenger Service Name default is MessengerService, and was set during the installation. You can view the Messenger Service Name in the GroupWise Admin Console > . If you are using self-signed certificates, you must use the -l option. If you didn’t use the default database port of 8320, use the -z option and specify the database port.
Start the Archive Agent on your 18.x server.
