We have 5 Notes 2000 boxes and 2 x Linux, I want to move the 2 x Linux onto 2000 boxes - any suggestions as my Linux knowledge doesn't exist.

- Copy the /local/notesdata directory to the windows machine (to c:/lotus/domino/data).  I generally use WinSCP to do this (you'll need ssh on the linux box, but normally, it always runs as a daemon ).  
- Move the notes.ini file from c:/lotus/domino/data to c:/lotus/domino
- edit the notes.ini file (change program( /opt/lotus/.. to c:/lotus/domino  ) and data (/local/notesdata to c:/lotus/domino/data) to match the new situation)
- install the Domino Server software, using the directories you created to copy the information to in the first place

cheers,

Tom

Usually, Linux servers show more reliability, virus-resilience and performance than Win2000 systems. It may be worthwhile to take a crash-course on Linux and keep both systems. But I can understand that you want to move them :)

Yeah, usually, people will do it the other way around (Win -> Linux) :-)

I guess I have to give the server the same name and IP address due to the replication etc.

We have many suggestions, but what are your plans now? What you're asking is too open, you must have some ideas how you would go about it.
