Migrating to Groupwise 8 / Windows

Hello all ,

a company wants to migrate their current gw8 suse10 , edir 8 to a windows platform , the reason for this is the windows server has applications needed to communicate with groupwise
the company has 20+ libraries and they need to be accessable aswell .. then upgrade to 2012

in this company there is 1 edirectory , 2 Linux servers , and 1 netware 6.5 box
in general 1 of the Linux servers holding the Gw servers must be migrated to windows 2003/2008

in the past i have migrated , to Linux , netware .. but never to windows
i assume the following path :

- copy all data from Linux to Windows
- install groupwise software

now comes the question , the tree/edir will remain the same ( usually i graft this to a different tree) .. i think in this case it will be easier ?
any advice ? ( besides staying on Linux )

I strongly recommend Danita's guide: http://postie.caledonia.net/store/index.php?route=product/product&path=39&product_id=53

It deals with all of what you are trying to accomplish.
