The GroupWise server is no longer running, however the archive directories and file system are still intact Is there a way to migrate the archives without the GroupWise server?
Migrating archives will require authentication against a GroupWise server, hence without an operational server you will not be able to do this.
This can be done by the following workaround:
1. Set up a GroupWise Server (physical or virtual)
2. Create a test user and find the the users File ID (FID)
3. Use the Novell FID Editor and change the FIDs on the archive so that both of them share the same FID.
4. Migrate the archive as an 'assumed' owner of the archive.
Please refer to the following articles:
The article "Editing a File ID (FID) Using ConsoleOne", on Novell's site, provides useful information in this regard.
The article "How to create a GroupWise user with a specific File ID" on Novell's site, also provides additional information.
