Moving User to Different GW System

We have a customer moving from one organization to another. Both have GW2014R2, but are in no way connected.
Is the only/best way, to archive his mailbox from the old system, change the FID using a FID Changer and upload it to the new Mailbox on the second system?

Is there a FID Changer that works with 2014R2?

Hi,

You would first need to check if FID from system one is not in use in system two.

If it can be used in system two you would follow the steps to create a new user with the same FID as he had in system one. Archive all the mail from system one, login to system two and unarchive all the mail. The orginal FID changer tool is not supported on 2014x

How do you create a user with a specific FID in GW2014 please?

Hi,

Here's the TID on how to create a user with a specific FID: https://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7014868

Just remember that the FID must be unique in the post office you are creating the user in.

As Laura mentioned, the FID has to be unique, so an easy way to get a
list is with
https://www.novell.com/communities/coolsolutions/making-groupwise-
user-listings-just-link-away/
then sort by FID in the spreadsheet of your choice (mine is Libre
Office's Calc) to make sure it isn't already used.
