Any success migration Groupwise 7.0.2

Postby drhughes » Mon Jan 12, 2009 10:35 am

I'm a new NE customer trying to convert my Groupwise users over to Zimbra NE 5.0.11 with very little success. I was wonder if anybody has had any luck making this conversion? If so, can you please share how you did it?
When the migration tools runs completely the only warnings I get are about shared folders, which is OK, they don't convert. However, when I log into Zimbra, half the messages are not there, and it is hit and miss with the Calendar. Only the addressbook seems to convert 100%.
I have thought about using IMAPSync, but that doesn't help me with user's Calendars or addressbooks.
Are there any other suggestions on how I might convert 1500+ Groupwise accounts over to Zimbra?

for the mails you can use imapsync, but for the contacts and calendar, you can export the calendar in ics format and re import it with a rest url in zimbra. For the contacts, you can do the same exporting your contacts in csv format and importing it in rest url

have you tried to export calendar users in ical format ?

I don't know if groupwize is doing it natively but someone write a script un ruby to do that.

when you will have your ics for each user, it will be easy ti import it in zimbra

The GroupWise migration tool makes use of a Novell shared library that Zimbra is unable to redistribute without additional paperwork. Contact your salesperson or support.
Two years ago, we migrated about 400 users from GroupWise 7.0.2, with considerable pain. Based on release notes, I think all the issues we had have been addressed.

Does anyone have success stories about migrating WITHOUT the GroupWise migration tool? I've figured out how to use imapsync for imap mail folders. Just wondering about the user's calander and personal address book.
I emailed sales (via the form and my client) re: getting the migration tool to try but all the bad press is making me think I should be looking at other options or do everyone by hand. I have less than 50 users so probably not a big deal but I'd rather not have to tell them to re-enter their calendars.
Thoughts?
