Migration tool for Groupwise cached mailbox

Our Groupwise 2014 R2 Mail Server crashed as the VMWare snapshot it was installed on was accidentally erased and all emails could no longer be recovered. I still have all my email in cached mode on my PC.
Is there a migration tool to sync this cached mail in my PC to the newly installed Groupwise 2014 R2 server ? Any help in the community would be appreciated.

  • Hi JimmyT,

    Welcome to the forums. Sorry to read about your situation. What you could do is:

    login to the caching mailbox and archive all the email
    create a user account in the new GroupWise system with the same FID as the user account in the old GroupWise system.
    login to the new account
    access the archive
    unarchive the data
    that should put the email back into your new GroupWise account.

    Cheers,

    Hi Laura,

    Thanks for your response to our issue.

    Rgds,
  • *Putting on my vMware hat* Just friendly advice here, I'm sure you are
    dealing with some chaos from this. We've all had unintended things
    happen, we've all done things that weren't quite the best thing for
    business. That said.

    snapshots are not backups.

    snapshots are intended for short term use only, systems should not run
    on snapshots outside of maintenance and testing periods. Use something
    like RVTools to monitor snaps.

    Did I mention that snapshots are not backups? Because, in the event you
    were wondering if snapshots are sufficient for backup... snapshots are
    not backups.
