Question

I am currently running sendmail but would like to convert to GMS for all my messaging requirements. Is there an easy way to do this?

Answer

Yes. Gordano provide a tool specifically designed to allow customers to port from sendmail over to a GMS solution. The target system can run on either a Windows or Unix platform. Solaris (sparc), Linux and AIX versions of GMS components are available.

The conversion utility will convert info in /etc/passwd (along with shadow if supported) into a standard GMS configuration file. This file can then be loaded into an existing GMS setup – perhaps a trial installation on a new
machine.

The utility can either be run on the UNIX or Windows machine. Gordano can supply pre-compiled versions for Linux, Solaris Sparc or code for other variants assuming you have a suitable C compiler, libraries, linker, make
etc.

If the utility is to be run on a Windows machine, it needs to have a SAMBA share to the root directory of the UNIX box with permissions set so it can access all the config files and mailboxes. Root access or the permissions for the UNIX files/directories should be temporarily modified to allow
read-only access for other users.
