I've got an old server running Lotus Domino Server v6.03, and want to upgrade it to Lotus Domino Server v7.0.
In addition I want to replace the hardware, and upgrade the operating system to RHEL 4.0 (from RH 7.2)
I can happily install the RHEL, and the fresh install of the v7.0 server, but I want to transfer all of the data (including certificates/accounts etc.)
The Server is not used for anything too complicated. It runs the mail, a corporate address book, bookings for various conference rooms (effectively a user for each room), and 3 or 4 fairly simple databases. I have the following questions:
1. What is the easiest way to transfer all of the data and templates over to the new system? Must I avoid overwriting the new (v7.0) templates?
2. Do I need to convert any of the data prior to the transfer? Most of the databases are in R5 format, but a few are in R4 - Do I need to convert them and if so howdo I do that?
My linux skills are very strong, but I'm relatively new to Lotus and the 'frame of mind' required to appreciate it!, so detail in any explaination is welcome, along with highlighting of any percieved pitfalls!
