Moving the GroupWise Message Server
Posted on 1998-01-22
I am preparing to upgrade from Novell GroupWise v.4.1 to v.5.2. At the same time I will be moving the Message Server from our site in Tampa, FL to our site in Atlanta, GA. The NLMs will be running on a completely different server - I'm not just moving the hardware - only the modules.
My concerns and questions are these:
1) Can I install the Message Server software on the new server in Atlanta without bringing the Message Server in Tampa down?
2) How do I correctly move the Domain information from one server to the other? Is it just a simple file copy?
3) I know I will have to redirect each of the POs to look at the new Message Server once it is configured, but are there any other considerations I should be looking into regarding the various POs on the WAN?
I would also appreciate someone sharing information on any other issues that they know about.
Since this is a multi-part question, I'll make the points nice and juicy..... LOL
