Merge NDS and eDirectory for Groupwise
Posted on 2006-06-21
I'm not a Novell expert so I'm posting to ask for your sugestions with the following task.
We currently have 2 disjointed Groupwise systems.
Site1: eDirectory 8.7 on 2003 server running Groupwise 6.5 MTA, POA, GWIA, Webacc agents.
Site2: NDS on Netware 5.1 running Groupwise 6.5 MTA and POA agents.
Site 2 is an external domain to Site 1 so they can use our GWIA and Webaccess agents. I would like to merge everything from Site 2 into Site 1's eDirectory and Groupwise Domain/PO.
If this were Windows and AD I would have used ADMT to move the users and mailboxes to the new system.
1. Does anyone know of a similar tool offered for migrating Novell users/mailboxes?
2. Has anyone done a merge similar to this? If so, should I watch out for anything specific that you ran into?
3. Does anyone have any general suggestions on how to do this migration?
This project is scheduled to start in about 30 days...I will need a final tested plan by then. Thanks in advance to my fellow Experts!
