Domino Server 7.0.3 FP1 Windows 2000

I have been asked to investigate the feasability of moving one or more of our Domino servers, currently on Windows2000, to our iSeries server. The reason being that we have an LPar that is currently not in use. I know that the AS400 is a workhorse and doesn't present the same issues as a Windows system, but is this a good move?

We have 6 remote sites each with their own domino server running (currently) ND7.03FP1 on a Windows 2000 or 2003 box. We're in the process up replacing each system with bigger drives and changing the OS to 2003 at the same time. We're not currently looking to upgrade to ND8.5.x at this time. That project is a little further down the road. We have two "hub" servers here at head office. I think they are thinking of consolidating them to one server (they are not clustered). We have 60 users spread over both of them, all the applications are essentially on both, one also acts as the backup server in the sense that the remote mail files replicate to it in order for our backup program to access them, and they both have ODBC connections currently to the AS400.

It's been 12 years since I had to admin Domino on an iSeries and even then, I didn't know anything about the OS or the AS400 itself so relied on Lotus support for assistance. Just for me to tell the powers that be that "I don't want to move it" isn't going to cut it. They want to know what is involved, what the costs are going to be if different license-wise, and if it's something that makes sense and we can do.

Any one have any pros and cons for me? Let me know if I've missed anything useful.
