Installing new server to replace old one

I bought a new server to replace my old one, and I am installing Netware 6.5 SP3 on it (same as old one) but the main difference is going to be that I am going to create NSS volumes vs. traditional volumes.

Can the information I have on the old server just be copied over (files, etc) if they are on Traditional volumes, or will that cause a problem?

Any other problems I might forsee?

Also, I have one box with Netware and GroupWise running on it. PowerEdge 2400 Pentium III 900 MHz processor with 1.5 GB RAM. Would it be best (suggestions/feedback appreciated) to use the new 3+ GHz Processor machine with 1.5 GB RAM to host all applications, or should I use the old Netware server just to run GW? Any thoughts?

Would work fine.

How many users? What is the load on your current box?

Re: Installing new server to replace old one

Load is not very high, averages about 10% maybe?

We only have about 30 users that log into the network directly, and about 150 email accounts.

Shouldn't be a problem for the one server I would say. I would consider
splitting them up only if you were seeing performance problems.

Well I am assuming that bumping up my processor speed (3x) I should see some performance bump. I don't expect it to go backwards though 😉
