Migration from GroupWise 6.5 to Exchange
Posted on 2008-10-15
I am trying to determine the best way to migrate from GroupWise 6.5 to Exchange 2003. My GroupWise server currently has a large number of personal folders (most shared, some are not) that contain data files that are not attachments. These files are almost exclusively .doc, .xls, .pdf, and .jpg files, and again, are not attached to emails, but were put in the personal folders as seperate files. I have tested the migration tools from Microsoft, Quest, and Transend, and to this point, I have not been able to find a way to efficiently reproduce these data files in the Exchange environment. If a file is attached to an email, the file is migrated along with the email. But the files that are not attached are not copied to the Exchange side during the migration. I am looking for suggestions on the most efficient way to get these files from GroupWise to Exchange, ideally with share permissions intact, but most importantly just getting the files from point A to point B without having to manually save them outside of the GroupWise system then manually putting them into the Exchange folders.
Thanks in advance,
