    Default GroupWise migration help

    We are using GroupWise 7/sp1a running on NetWare 6.5/SP6. I'm testing the GW migration wizard (file version 4.5.5_GA_881). The migration tool is running on a Windows XP workstation (SP2) with the latest NetWare client (4.91/sp3). I’ve confirmed that Gwtapp.dll is in c:\windows\system32. Yes, I'm logged into the workstation as administrator. What happens is the migration tool progress gets to "migrating contacts" and it just sits there (I've let it sit for 60+ minutes). It never times out and there is nothing written to the log file location (c:\windows\temp). I've watch the POA log and everything looks fine on that end. I've tried migrating a test user with NO contacts and just 4 emails but I get the same results where it hangs on "migrating contacts". I'm looking for some ideas on what to try next?!?! Thanks in advance.

    Get the pre-4.5.6 release of the migration tool from the support portal and try that.

    Sorry, when I posted earlier I wasn't clear on what version of the migration tool we are using. We are using GW migration wizard file version 4.5.5_GA_881.

    I'm using ZCSGroupwiseMigrationWizard-4.5.6_GA_1023.exe but I'm STILL having problems. I do have more information now though. The log shows that it is trying to migrate the entire GroupWise system address book. Even though our address book is small it would take 24 hrs+ to do it at the rate it is going. Is there a way to not migrate the system address book?

    Hi,

    Bug 15888 has been logged to Remove "Novel GroupWise Address Book" from the list of address books to be migrated.

    The fix would be available in 4_5_7.

    Regards,
    Manish

    In the not too distant future, no firm date as yet.
