Migrating from GroupWise?
Are you being compelled to migrate to Microsoft Exchange? While Advansys’ recommendation is to keep GroupWise and avoid the significant security risks and costs of moving collaboration platforms, when there is no choice other than to move to Exchange, the cost-effective Advansys Migration Pack provides a fast, highly affordable and high quality option.
The Advansys Migration Pack includes Archive To Go and the Advansys PST Creator software, which work together to provide the technical solution, while the bundle pricing makes it even more affordable than purchasing the products separately. Request a full trial today.

The Advansys Migration Pack is the combination of Archive To Go and the Advansys PST Creator. These products work seamlessly together to provide a low cost, high quality migration tool set. Below you can see the features for both pack products, which is the same information provided from the Archive To Go and Advansys PST Creator product pages.
The core migration functionality is provided by Archive to Go Creator and the Advansys PST Creator working together. Archive To Go Creator exports the GroupWise mailboxes to a portable archive format, which is then converted to a PST file by Advansys PST Creator. Both products support batch processing and automation capabilities.
Archive To Go also ships with Archive To Go Viewer, Indexer and Finder. These can be used in conjunction with the intermediate Archive To Go archives, which are produced during the first step in migrating to PST format, for additional portable snapshots of your GroupWise mailbox data.

“Thanks for your friendly help and support with Archive to Go 3.1 and 4 Beta. The Archive to Go 4 release is AWESOME! I don’t know how I managed without it and now rely on it. I run it on my cached mailbox and with the sync facility, it runs smooth and fast. Major kudos to all of you.”

Great Company, Great people, Great Product! I highly recommend!”

GroupWise User Count
For most purchases Archive To Go and Advansys PST Creator pricing is based on your organization’s total GroupWise user count. Use the GroupWise Administrator Portal for later GroupWise systems (2014/2018 or later), while older versions can use the ConsoleOne approach below.
Step 1: Important: For each GroupWise Post Office object in your GroupWise System, use ConsoleOne (or stand-alone GWCheck) to run a Mailbox/Library Maintenance with the Audit Report option (see Figure 1 below). If you skip the GWCheck Audit Report step, the user count reported in the GroupWise System Object Information dialog may not be accurate.
Figure 1 Run GWCheck with Audit Report option for each Post Office.
Step 2: Using ConsoleOne, highlight the GroupWise System object.

Step 3: Right-mouse click, select Information from the menu.
