You can use the GroupWise Server Migration Utility to move domains and post offices from NetWare servers to Linux servers. For instructions, see the GroupWise Server Migration Guide.
IMPORTANT:After you migrate the domains and post offices to the supported version of Linux and before you update to GroupWise 2012, ensure that your GroupWise system functions correctly with the original version of the GroupWise software. Ensure that eDirectory user synchronization is functioning on Linux, as described in Section 15.4, Re-establishing eDirectory User Synchronization after Migration.
After you have migrated the domains and post offices from NetWare to Linux, you are ready to update your GroupWise system to GroupWise 2012. Skip to Section 16.0, Preparing Your GroupWise 8 System for the Update.
