Server Consolidation and Migration Tool

We currently have an older machine running Netware 6.5 SP6. We're planning to replace this machine with a newer faster server and will be using the Server Consolidation and Migration Tool to do this. We will be giving the new server the same name and IP address as the old server. This is one of 5 total servers on our network. The old server is also running Groupwise 7.01. It is my understanding that SCMT can be used to migrate "everything". Does this include Groupwise or will I need to take special steps for the Groupwise? If it will not migrate the Groupwise, does anyone have a quick and easy way to get the Groupwise moved over?

Thanks,
Kenny G.

Re: Server Consolidation and Migration Tool

Install the new server in pre-migration mode using the sp7 overlay CDs.
You will need to use a temp server name, tree name, and IP addy on the
new server.

The migration wizard will move the GW data. You will need to install
the agents after the migration is completed and the new server has
taken over the ID of the old server.

You will want to copy the load configuration files (*.poa and *.mta)
normally found in the sys:\system directory. This can save you some
time.

Re: Server Consolidation and Migration Tool

The migration is complete. I reloaded the Groupwise agents after the migration and everything seems to be working fine. Thank you for the guidance.
