Question...what's the relationship with Groupwise accounts and Netware
accounts? Are these two different accounts (mail and directory accts) I
have to migrate into AD/Exchange 2003?



From AD...
(1) Novell 5.X is a Directory Server housing user accounts right?
Novell Netware 5.x is a FILE SERVER operating system, much like
Windows Server 2000 or 2003.

Novell NDS (Novell Directory Service) or in "new-speak" - eDirectory -
is the directory service ON TOP of Novell Netware (much like AD on top
of Win Server 2000/2003). It will contain and manage the user accounts
for your Novell Netware servers.
Going to Exchange 2003 and Windows 2003 - on a HIGH-LEVEL sample step, what
would I have to do? Justa primer would be great on this please
Basically, you will need to migrate your user accounts and security
groups from Novell NDS / eDirectory to Active Directory (either
manually, by scripting, or by usign a tool such as Microsoft's
MSDSS/MSFMU or Quest NDS Migrator). That will move all your users,
their properties (like first name, last name, phone number etc.), and
it should also allow you to move their files and permissions on those
files from the Novell Netware file server to the MS Windows file
server.

Not 100% sure on the Groupwise-to-Exchange thing, though - basically
same thing, you will need to migrate the user mail accounts from
Groupwise to Exchange - can't say how in detail, however, and don't
know if there are any tools helping you do this, either.

Check out Knowledgebase article 328737. You have to setup a migration
server. If you go to www.microsoft.com and select support, got to Exchange
server and type in Groupwise migration you will get all the info you need.

Perform migration of mailboxes from GroupWise to MS Exchange Server.This software allows single and multiple mailbox migration where users can save the migrated items to orphan .PST files or direct to MS Exchange Server user mailboxes.
