If parts of your GroupWise system are still running legacy GroupWise agents, you should continue to use the legacy ConsoleOne and its snap-ins to administer the legacy parts of your GroupWise system. For convenience, you can safely run the GroupWise 2012 ConsoleOne and snap-ins on most of the legacy parts of your GroupWise system. However, the GroupWise 2012 snap-ins do not support specific legacy GroupWise functionality, such as the WebAccess Agent and its eDirectory objects, which no longer exist in GroupWise 2012.

When you are in the GroupWise 18 Admin console, you can easily see which agents have not yet been upgraded. Legacy agents that have not yet been upgraded to GroupWise 18 are marked with their GroupWise version.
