So I have a server running Groupwise 2014 R2 and have in my portal the upgrade to Groupwise 18. I also happen to own Reload 5 installed on its own server. I want to upgrade to the Enterprise Messaging to get Teams and Messenger, and I understand that Reload is now a part of that (as Groupwise Disaster Recovery). In trying to plan for all this, what I can not seem to find out is:
1) Do I have to stage a new server for Groupwise, and separate servers for Teams, Messenger and Reload/Disaster Recovery?
2) Will Teams run on Linux virtualization since I don't own VMWare or run Windows servers. Also I think that Teams is a virtual appliance.
3) I have eDirectory on my Groupwise server (talking to my production OES server) and plan on keeping that. Can I also put eDirectory on say, the Disaster Recovery server?
My user count is less than 44, but some of their mailboxes are large and they'll probably spend a ton of time messaging (they use the old Novell Send Message still and it's always on/always in use for many people). Teams will only be used by about 15 people in the company.
Can anyone shed some light for me here? The documentation isn't helping me.
