We are running Domino R5 mail server now , We are planning for domino 8.5 new installation next week , the scenario is as follows ,
The present R5 mail server will be used as old mail archive server with old user database link in workspase in new client .
A new domino 8.5 installation and fresh mail , but will need old contacts directories from R5 and all users to be recreated to new mail server .
We dont want to migrate the old server as its old hardware and more over migration route is complicated from R5. i need to know about how to transfer the contacts data base to the new 8.5 and otehr things which i may not be thinking .. thank you.,,.
