Upgrading/Migrating from NetWare (also moving Linux or Windows to new servers)

When Caledonia created the upgrade guide for GroupWise 2012, it was the first time we had to have two versions.  The guides were typically for “in place upgrade only” and there was even a separate “Moving GroupWise” publication for sites where a move and upgrade were going to occur.  With the discontinuation of support for NetWare, this all changed.  We had to create a specific guide for “moving from NetWare” with GroupWise 2012.

For GroupWise 2014, we are taking a slightly different tack.  Not only will folks moving from NetWare need to do a “migration”, but there will be many existing Linux and Windows servers that cannot do in-place upgrades.   Thus we have designed this guide to show you how to properly move your data to your new server, and then immediately “upgrade” to GroupWise 2014 without installing a prior version of GroupWise first.
