GW <-> O365 (Cloud)

Hi,

because the missing MAC support of GW: A customer has the idea to use
O365 (M$-Cloud). He would use the MAC-Outlook as Client at the MAC and
the GW-Client at the Windows-PC.

Has somebody an idea if the relatime SYNC (not a migration) of GW and
the O365-Cloud is possible? We need Mail-, Addressbook-, Calender- and
BusyTime-Sync.

GW/M$X-Coexisting Tool is not helpful because it seems that you need
separate Mail-Domains.

To access mail via IMAP and a Outlook-Client from the GWIA seems to be
workable, but calender, addressbook and the scheduling is a problem just
now.

    That is because both systems, like most email systems, assume they are
    the sole owner of a given domain. Anytime someone has managed to make
    it look like there are different systems sharing a domain, it is due to
    using other domains in the background.

    What version of GroupWise are you running? Perhaps we should look at
    those particular challenges here if you haven't already been doing so.

    Ahem, no..? Groupwise assumes exactly to be the owner of each and every
    email address it knows, but *NOT* the whole domain(s). Any email sent to
    a domain internal to groupwise, but an unknown user will be sent towards
    the GWIA to send it out to the internet. If, of course, it finds itself
    as the MX record, it will thus send the mail to itself.

    Above said, I have to disagree again. I had and have several customers
    running multiple totally seperate systems under thesame domain anem
    without issue. All you need is a "judge" in front of those systems that
    knows which email addresses exist, and in which system, and that's the
    MX record for all involved, external and internal.

    A system of systems
    and I agree when we set all that up (as I have as well), we can make it
    work with all those systems in house. My statement was from the
    perspective of the Coexisting tool base assumptions and I see my wording
    didn't include that. Other tools are certainly required (unless there is
    something in the coexistence tool I've been missing) with the SMTP side
    being easy enough, it is the other services Bernd that are the challenging
    part.

  • I have a client with a bunch of artists that use MACs. They use the Groupwise 8 client for MAC and love it.

    The Groupwise documentation recommends using the native MAC apps.

    https://www.novell.com/documentation/groupwise18/gw18_qs_mac/data/gw18_qs_mac.html

     

    Hope this helps.

     

  • Yes it can be done but it needs to be done under expert supervision. Once i tried to opt to GW to office 365 migration and lost all the data. So before you move ahead with any step make sure you are doing it in a correct manner.
