The GroupWise 7 software requirements are different than previous GroupWise software requirements. To review the requirements, see Section 2.0, GroupWise System Requirements.
The GroupWise Installation Advisor helps you copy the GroupWise 7 software (administration, agents, client, and so forth) to a GroupWise software distribution directory. This can be an existing software distribution directory or a new software distribution directory.
NOTE:Starting with GroupWise 7, GroupWise Windows client users cannot run the client software from the software distribution directory. They must install the GroupWise Windows client locally on their workstations. Users running the GroupWise client from their local drives can continue to run the local GroupWise client until you prompt them to update to GroupWise 7.
GroupWise 7 is administered through ConsoleOne®, using the version listed in Section 2.1, GroupWise Administration Requirements. You can use the same version of ConsoleOne to administer earlier GroupWise components in your GroupWise system.
IMPORTANT:Earlier versions of ConsoleOne should not be used to administer GroupWise 7 domains, post offices, users, or other GroupWise 7 objects.
ConsoleOne is included on the GroupWise 7 Administrator for NetWare/Windows CD. If necessary, you can install it at the same time as the other GroupWise software.
Linux users can download ConsoleOne for Linux from the Novell Product Downloads site and install it before starting to install GroupWise.
NOTE:Earlier versions of GroupWise required or allowed the use of NetWare® Administrator to administer your GroupWise system. Currently, NetWare Administrator should only be used if you still run very early gateways that require it. Otherwise, do not use NetWare Administrator.
