Sad times here, for me anyway. Our migration from Groupwise to office
365 email is done.

In the next few days, our eDirectory tree, which has been in production
for over 20 years, will be no more........... 😞

Anders Gustafsson sounds like they 'said':

> You have my condoleances...


So my response to Anders's comment is...

Thanks. Only positive is if a user can't get to email, but can get on
the web, I get to say "I can't help you, call micro$oft"

I'm lucky -- since we use IDM here, I still get to administer eDirectory
on our vault servers. It's a tiny part of my job, though. Everything
else has gone to the dark side.

The email portion was the last bit holding on here, and it was decided
(by 3 people, not TPTB or anything) that we should move to this cloud
based email.... <spit>

When you do delete them, after you do it, take yourself out for a
nice lunch or dinner. You fought the good fight for as long as you
could.

I will, thanks. We had an after work get together to commemerate the
email migration getting finished. It was almost like a wake for me,
felt like 'celebrating' an employee being let go after over 20 years of
service.

I know. You're not the only one who has gone through that situation
and those feelings, sadly.
