Groupwise 8 (i know) upgrade directly to 2014.

Any thoughts? Gotahyas? We'd like to become current in one step. Some Linux, some Windows boxes.

Well upgrading directly from GroupWise 8 to 2014 is supported. See

The biggest gotchas will be whether your hardware/OS supports it. GW8 could run on a lot of servers that GW 2014 will not support. 64 bit is obvious, but Nothing older than Win 2008 or SLES 11/OES11.

And to be specific... nothing older than Win 2008 R2. Original Win
2008 is not supported for GW2014.

We transfer the data from Netware 6.5 to OES11 and then upgraded on OES 11 / GW2014 SP1. The challenge was to have the MTA - POA link running, which requires a preliminary step to the migration : with help of console one, set the future ip / ports / path / certs for each component (MTA / POA / GWIA)
