II Manual Server Migration

This section describes the manual steps for moving existing GroupWise 7 or GroupWise 8 users, post offices, and domains from NetWare or Windows to Linux. It can also be used for moving existing GroupWise 2012 users, post offices, and domains from Windows to Linux. GroupWise 2012 is not available on NetWare.

This section is designed to help those who might have a domain or post office where the Server Migration Utility is not fully successful in migrating the GroupWise data.

IMPORTANT:If you have GroupWise 6.x or 5.x, review the “Update” section of the GroupWise 7 Installation Guide or the GroupWise 8 Installation Guide to acquaint yourself with the issues involved in updating from one version of GroupWise to another. You should update your GroupWise system to GroupWise 7 or 8 before migrating it to Linux.

If your GroupWise system is currently on NetWare and you are updating to GroupWise 2012, you must migrate to Linux or Windows first, then update to GroupWise 2012.
