Does anyone have some decent notes on migrating from a Groupwise 6.5 system to Exchange 2003.

I'm using a Windows XP workstation that is part of the AD domain I'm migrating too. I have the Netware client installed. I also have the Exchange System Manager(ESM) installed.

I've been able to gather from the many technotes I
've read that I need the Groupwise client 5.2.5 installed on the migration workstation as well(even though I have a 6.5 system). I have been unable to find on Novell's site the 5.2.5 version of the client. I have been able to find the support packs for this version however I cn't extract them because the extraction looks for the existing 5.2 software directory.
The earliest version I have is GW 5.5. I've installed this version and then used the exchange migration tool. It starts out okay but then stops with a 'GW Source Extractor' error message.
Same thing with the GRouwpise 6.5 client.(The 6.5 client seems to get all the items out of my inbox, and stops with an error when it tries extracting my folders/calendar)

Any help would be appreciated.
Note: I was able to migrate mailboxes using the Quest Groupwise Migrator for Exchange. However, it's $10.00 per user and I have 200 users to migrate. Would like to try and get the exchange migration tool working.

as for the client, I cannot find one anywhere, not even on Novell's web site. You may have to ask them to send you a CD with it on...

Or try using Outlook with the groupwise plugin to acces GW mailboxes:
