Funny you should mention that...
That was my first plan and that uncovered some issues with the server itself that caused me to have to revert to the snapshot.  Im hesitant to try and upgrade GroupWise on that server now.

Have you considered just upgrading the existing 2008r2 to 2012r2, avoiding all the migration stuff? You could even duplicate (or snap) the original and revert should the upgrade fail.

>I have a small GroupWise 2012 install; 2 servers, 1 domain and PO on one and 1 domain, GWIA, Webaccess on another.  My PO server (Windows 2008R2 on VMWare ESXi 5.5) needs to be replaced.  Ive built a new Windows Server 2012 R2 server to take its place.  All GroupWise PO and domain data resides on an iSCSI SAN.  
>My question is can I install GroupWise 2014 on the new server, take down the old server, move IP address and connect iSCSI volumes to the new server and that will work, or should I install GroupWise 2012 on the new server, move IP address and connect iSCSI volumes to bring up GroupWise on the new server and then upgrade to GroupWise 2014?
