Hi all, I'm planning to upgrade my 3 domino 6.5 servers to ver 8, but also at the same time switch from using win2003 server over to linux debian servers. This will involve about 60 mail users. Has anybody taken on a similar upgrade? Any thoughts on how best to approach this? Thanks in advance, Paul

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I would highly suggest separating the two upgrades. First upgrading your Windows Domino server to 8. Then Installing the new server (are you looking to use the same hardware?) Then when your data is on version 8 the migration should be a lot easier.

Never ever do two components of an upgrade at the same time. You will have a really hard time finding your point of failure.

    Thanks KarlG My enviroment is virtual vmware. Will use different virtual machines for each OS(win / linux). So to get this clear in my mind, it's two step process involving; 1. Upgrade - Using exist HW 2. Migration - first install fresh Domino 8 server on Linux, then use a migration tool to move across to mail databases etc.. How do you go about migrating data from one Domino 8 server to another? Do you simply use replication or is there some migration tool that you can use. Thanks for the Redbook link, I'll look into it more. Paul
