move post office from novell to windows
Posted on 2006-11-27
I have a basic idea of how to move groupwise from a Novell server to a Windows server, but I need more help with the exact steps. I have already installed the agent on the windows server. The path to the post office on the novell server is \\novellserver\vol1\apps\gw\po, and the path where I installed the agent to the windows server is \\windowsserver\apps\gw\po. I also told the agent installation that the database would be located in the PO directory. I know that I have to make changes to the paths in Console1 for the post office settings there.
1. I have to right click the PO in Console1, and go to the Groupwise --> Identification part to change the UNC path there.
2. I have to go to the Link Configuration to update the IP address to the new server there.
3. I have to add the new server as an LDAP server, and point the Post Office to it.
4. I have to open windowsserverpo.POA and update the home UNC path in section 1.
When I am ready to move the PO data to the new server, I have to stop the post office on the old server, then copy it to the new server, and once the copy is complete, I should be able to start the service on the new server.
If I am missing any steps, or anything is out of order, please let me know.
