Post Migrating Groupwise Data with E-Directory Objects
Is it possible in future enhancements in Reload to Migrate the Groupwise data with E-Directory objects and schema?, so that setting up GroupWise on the new server becomes easy.

This will allow administering of Groupwise on a single server environment when a disaster strikes, easy.

On the other hand, can Groupwise be administered without E-Directory, i.e add users, make admin changes on agents, do database maintenance etc

You can easily graft GroupWise in any eDirectory tree you like.

You need to be authenticated to the tree where the GW objects resides to be able to manage any aspect of GroupWise (except for the agent's startup files).

This is a great topic.

eDirectory from it's inception was written to be fault-tolerant and redundant. eDirectory does not need a "Reload" type product for disaster recovery, because every replica of a partition is a full copy of that partition.

So here's what you should consider to further leverage your Reload server for disaster recovery.

1. Install eDirectory to the Reload server
2. Have the Reload server house the replicas of the partitions in your eDirectory tree

In the case of a disaster, in which you cut over to the Reload server, eDirectory is still seemlessly hosting authenticaion etc. from eDirectory on the Reload server.

Some other things you should consider are implementing a push-button disaster recovery solution for Internet mail and GroupWise WebAccess. This can be done, I've now done it for a few clients, and it's slick! In your typical system we can do such a project with 2 to 4 hours of remote consulting. If you do not have a GWAVA Reseller that you work with for such things, you could contact your GWAVA Sales Representative and they can set up time for us to consult together and for me to assist you with such a project over the phone and using remote connectivity.

Here's the link to the GWAVA Salespeople contact information:
