We have recently been asked to determine if it's possible to either image a Novell GroupWise server OR make the GroupWise data available after the server is decommissioned. Are there any resources or recommendations where we can start?

I have no experience with GroupWise and am open to any suggestions that will enable us to get this server virtualized if possible.

Thanks

technically, it you got two identical hard disks, it is possible to clone one to another, byte by byte, bit by bit, whatever it is GroupWise, NetWare or Windows.

some OS independent clone utilities such as Norton Ghost should be able to do that. but seems so far no one actually tried that.

hardware based solutions are also available. for example, my dual-slot USB adapter support HD to HD clone.

Thanks for the reply bbao.

Ultimately we're looking to virtualize this system if possible.

if the word "image" means "virtualize", then you need P2V solution for GroupWise.

if your virtualisation platform is VMware, have a check on the following discussion.

Thank you for your patience. The process provided is what we'll need to virtualize, however it has been requested that the GroupWise emails be exported into a format compatible with Outlook. I will open another question for that request.

Thanks again.
