moving from Exchange 2003 to GroupWise

Client has a MS Small Business 2003 Server - just 25 users


  • MS dumped the SBS line of servers
  • moving to new Server will now means 2 x SERVERS
  • Client also uses Terminal Server - so that means yet another server
  • Moving from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 or Exchange 2013 is NOT possible
  • Exchange 2003 > Exchange 2008 > Exchange 2013 is expensive in Downtime and Consultancy cost



Client hasn't got the budget for above - consultancy cost alone is a killer

Are there any tools from Novell which will enable quick upgrade?

Export to PST and Import PST is time consuming - some mailboxes are 30Gb+
I appreciate most people will go the other way so Novell probably don't think its worth investing in tools to simplify the process!

Kernel / Nucleus procucts will to this, we have used them, they work as advertised. Certainly worth the cost for a 30GB mailbox....

The only utility we ever had is this older one that was designed for
GW7 but you could test it with 2012.

Otherwise, here are a couple of other migration tools for migrating
from Exchange to GroupWise.

In addition, you may already be aware of this, but our small business
offering (Novell Open Workgroup Suite for Small Business) is designed
for customers with up to 200 users and 5 servers and is EXTREMELY cost
effective. You get OES/GW/Vibe/ZCM/ZESM today, soon you'll have Filr,
and later this year we're looking at even adding Mobile iPrint to the
offering. Hopefully your customer will consider this instead of
looking at only an Exchange to GroupWise migration.

Re: moving from Exchange 2003 to GroupWise

We updated the "GroupWise 7 Migration Utility SP2 for Microsoft Exchange" on 12-7-2012 (just the msi was updated) to support a GroupWise 8 and 2012 back-end. It still only supports a source Exchange 2003 and possible Exchange 2007 (not sure) system.

Using a Windows XP Pro workstation is recommended to run this utility.

Re: moving from Exchange 2003 to GroupWise

We updated the "GroupWise 7 Migration Utility SP2 for Microsoft Exchange" on 12-7-2012 with support for a GroupWise 8 and 2012 back-end. You will notice a new setup.msi file which use to be a setup.exe in the ExMigrate directory. It still only supports a source Exchange 2003 and possibly a Exchange 2007 (not sure) system.

The "pstmig" was not updated. It is still dated 10-9-2007.

Using a Windows XP Pro workstation is recommended to run this utility.

Re: moving from Exchange 2003 to GroupWise

I'm not unbiased on the subject of course, but the Caledonia tool that Joe mentioned is very solid and easy to use.
