Groupwise install with split or secondary domain.

It's been a good 5 years since I last administered Groupwise so I'm not completely unfamiliar with the product. I'm looking for someone to suggest some docs, blogs, forum posts, or ideas, whatever on setting up Groupwise 2012 in a split domain scenario. We have about 60 email accounts of those 10/15 are management, and engineering. Management and engineering are looking for some sort of groupware solution while the other accounts we maintain in regular old email. Yea we figured the floor sweeper wouldn't have much use for it, maybe if we find ourselves down to one push broom and need to make reservations for it. Since we decided not to go with Exchange I think we can still afford another push broom. 😉

I have a couple ideas on how to skin this cat but I haven't administered Groupwise since version 6 so any direction anyone can give with this scenario and Groupwsie 2012 would be great!!

Thanks.

Re: Groupwise install with split or secondary domain.

This is a nice small deployment - the question is storage (cheap these
days) and keeping single instance etc.

I assume that you have some kind of virtualisation server (if not then
look at the VMware Essential pack (not esentials plus)

Purchase the Novell Small Business Suite (comes in packs of 5 and has
OES11 GW2012 and ZCM )

Create 2 Virtual servers for the GW - one for primary domain and 2
Post offices (one for collaboration, one for email)

The second virtual server will have a secondary domain, the GWIA and
host WebAccess.

Lastly look at Veeam for a backup solution

Well, that's a pretty broad question to boot, but what is the "other"
mail system? Are you aware of the web/wireless license for Groupwise?
You could buy 15 full licenses, and the rest as web/wireless, which
gives them access to webaccess and IMAP via e.g Thunderbird (or any
other IMAP capable client), just not the full groupwise client. The
web/wireless license is significantly cheaper.
