My question relates much to the question titled "Groupwise export", but is not exactly the same.
We have about 15 active users and we have archived their e-mail anticipating a rebuild of our edirectory and groupwise. At the time we were running Groupwise 6 and Netware 5.1 on the PO server. We did not have the hardware or resources to keep two trees running at the same time for a migration, so we opted to use archiving to export, and then import, the user's mail stores.
After creating the new tree, called NEWTREE, and domain NEWDOM, and creating all the users new groupwise 6.5 system (NEWTREE is completely 6.5 for Netware and groupwise), the users fid in groupwise was obviously going to change. I considered this, and anticipated using a tool like gw5afe (Archive FID Editor) to change the fid on the archive, access the archive online with the user's account, and restore the messages from the archive.
In trying to use gw5afe, I cannot authenticate to the domain of course, so it will not change the FID. Does anyone have any solution for restoring e-mail from an archive with an incorrect fid? Groupwise will not even allow me to open them, it tells you the archive is from an older version and needs to be upgraded to 6, and then bombs out during the upgrade with a C067 error.
I'm hoping someone has a solution for this or a great tip to provide. Thanks!
