GroupWise Monitor is not dependent on any other GroupWise agents, so it can be updated to GroupWise 2012 at any time. GroupWise 2012 Monitor does not include any functionality enhancements, although it no longer relies on eDirectory objects for its configuration information. All configuration information is located in the gwmonitor.cfg file instead.
The Installation program does not remove the associated Monitor eDirectory objects. You will manually remove these objects later, as described in Section 24.2.1, Deleting Obsolete Monitor eDirectory Objects.
