I agree with Rob. If this is Domino data, you should definitely replicate
the db's. And you surely shouldn't do any OS-level copying of the data while
Domino is running.

Another option is to use the Administrator interface and select all the
mail files and select Create Replicas. Tell it to create it on the other
server. Then do a couple of tell adminp process all to hurry it on it's
way. It may take awhile but it will do it in the background and not tie
up your PC. Fire off a replicate server2 and let it start processing
(after the replica stubs are created via adminp). During this process
people can still use their email and you have no outage.

I am under the assumption that both of these domino servers are named
different and this isn't a hurry up and migrate from old hardware to new
hardware during off hours project.

You may wish to add both of these servers to the same domino "cluster".

One option I used to migrate a spin off from it's own dpar on i to windows
was Filezilla.

The save file option is not a bad idea also.

If you are using DAOS then I would only recommend the replication route,
or you had better be doing the unload/reload from old hardware to new
hardware.

Sent by: domino400-bounces+rob=dekko.com@xxxxxxxxxxxx



We have 2 System i servers in different geographic locations, both with
multiple DPARs. Other than using iSeries Navigator (too slow), what
options are there to copy all of the mail files from a DPAR on one system
to a DPAR on the other system?

Is there a green screen command to do this?

Thanks,

Bill Schroeder
