yup, it runs on Linux, from the docs:
2.1.1 Messenger Server Requirements

32-bit/x86 processor or 64-bit/x86 processor running in 32-bit mode

Any of the following server operating systems for the Messenger
Novell® Open Enterprise Server (NetWare® or Linux version), plus the
latest Support Pack

NetWare 6, or NetWare 6.5, plus the latest Support Pack for your
version of NetWare

SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 10, plus the latest Support Pack

Windows Server* 2000, Windows Server 2003, or Windows Server 2003 R2,
plus the latest Service Pack for your version of Windows
and according to the docs for the GW server Migration Utility v1.1:
"Manual migration instructions for Messenger are provided in the
Messenger 2 Installation Guide"
and buried in the install guide is:
best of luck !

Sorry, Lil. Don't mean to hi-jack your post. but I have been wondering
the same thing. Our GWIM is still on an old Netware VM and I want to
migrate it to a shiny new Linux VM. First, does GWIM run on Linux? If
so, is there a migration path?

Windows server? I think I'd worry about IP's...

Sorry for not having responded to everyone about yesterday's fiasco.
I've been picking up the debris left in its wake. I'll respond when the
storm has passed.
Right now I need to find out if it's possible to move an install of
GWIM from the old server to the new without losing anything but the
server location or if its possible to point the GWIM to the new domain
server and still have it operational. Or will this involve a complete
uninstall/reinstall of the service?
