primary/secondary question

IS it possible to have a primary domain and po as GW 2012 on Linux with a secondary domain and po holding at GW 8 on Netware? - Not sure how fast I will be able to get out to the secondary location.
If not, I'll have to migrate the secondary (or move all of it's users to the primary - delete it, and create a new one on a linux box)

Thanks
D

Hi D,

Your best bet is just to migrate the secondary to a Linux box. Way easier than moving users, etc.

Not to sure about the hybrid environment - will get back to you if I come across additional information for you.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

Absolutely. As long as the primary is updated first you can definitely
run in a mixed environment.

GW 2014 is out...maybe consider that instead of GW 2012.

But as to your original question, it will work, but if you upgrade
WebAccess to 2012/2014, I don't believe it can access the older PO. So
you may need to hold off on WebAccess until you can upgrade the
secondary location.

Correct, or setup a second instance of WebAccess using 2014 and
continue running the 2012 instance as well until all post offices are
upgraded.

Re: primary/secondary question

No problem! that mixed configuration works.
Only, you must be careful with the GroupWise WebAccess
