For those of you who didn't see this on Facebook, I post here just to show how
much I love working with GroupWise!

Yesterday I remotely upgraded 12 GroupWise servers from GW8 to GW2012 and
configured the POs for autoupdate, tested, upgraded a few clients and was done.
4-1/2 hours. Felt like I wasted time!! Could have been less if we had really
been in a hurry! Take that Exchange!

Bravo! Very impressive. And if it had been Exchange you would have
needed at least 3 dancing monkeys and a Microsoft certified monkey
Administrator, and that's just for the catering!

Do you work with Novell technologies at a university, college or school?
If so, your campus could benefit from joining the Novell Technology
Transfer Partner (TTP) program. See novell.com/ttp for more details.

It was SLES10 SP1 when we installed GW8 about 8 months ago. After I did the GW
upgrade, the IT gal was going around after me doing all of the OS patches ;-)
I'm not sure it really took her much longer to do that than it took me to do the
GW stuff.
