    Default Groupwise Migration Tool: location??

    I can't seem to locate this tool. I found the others, for Exchange, etc... I am using the 4.5.7 trial.

    Thanks!

    Default Migration tool in 4.5.7?

    I had previously trialed Zimbra at version 4.5.6. There were some show stopping bugs in the Groupwise migration tool and I was hoping that I could give it another try with 4.5.7. But now I don't see the groupwise migration tool as an available download in the Zimbra admin page. Just Domino and Exchange.

    Is there some place I can download the current version of the tool?

    A little bump on this thread. I can't seem to find the tool either. Strange that nobody has responded to this or my thread. It seems pretty cut and dry. Is Groupwise migration no longer supported or something? If so, then that would be Bad.

    They are aware and are working out some things; in the meantime please use the 4.5.6 wizard

    I already tried the 4.5.6 tool a few months ago and it was broken. Pretty much useless, actually. It wouldn't migrate most of my users... A known bug, AFAIK. The whole point of downloading and installing 4.5.7 was to see if things had improved. Oh well. I guess I'll just hold off until 5.0 RC2. Hopefully there will be a Network Edition. 5.0 is probably what we'd end up using anyway.

    ya, when I merged threads I saw that you had said:

    I'm sorry, I wish there was more that I could do for you!

    Default there was one in 5.0 RC1

    I think... or maybe 5.0 Beta 3... but I've actually been using it, with a decent rate of success. There are still some issues...
    - some errors on migration, interpreting MIME types or somesuch, so some items are not migrated, but it seems a small percentage
    - some calendar items are duped - I think b/c of resource (Conf Room) being scheduled in there as well, an auto-acceptance, etc.
    - it's still pretty slow, or at least, not a fast performer. Doing it at night when no one else is around (and GW server idle) seems to help - maybe 1-2 msgs./second (?? from memory, this could be wrong)

    But it does migrate mail, calendar, and contact info (have not tried on shared folders or shared address books).

    Default Migration tool for Groupwise?

    Ok, I've been waiting and waiting and still no updated Groupwise migration tool. I just downloaded 5.0 NE RC2 and it isn't even included... Not even a "beta" version. This is very very bad news. Information regarding Groupwise has even been removed from the wiki . Says "Talk to sales." Sounds like Groupwise migration isn't going to be supported at all.

    Can anyone from Zimbra comment on this? I really need to know if Zimbra is going to work for us or if we need to look elsewhere.

    Edit: Yes, I realize I could just call sales like the wiki says, but I think it would be useful to have some semi-official statement out there. I hate it when companies make you call for information that they could simply publish on the site.

    I believe that there are some licensing issues still being worked out, thus you need to contact them just like it asks - as I haven't done so in a while with regard to the wizard (Else, please use the one bundled in 4.5.6 or 5.0Beta3 should have it as well.)
