    No. There are basically two options that allow to access groupwise
    without having to enter a password. One is via eDiectory login, and the
    other via the local windows user account, which has nothing to do with
    the backend whatsoever. Think of it like your browser remembering your
    password in your local windows profile.

  • so I had it also understood, but we dont get the login without password as AD User. GW 2014 R2 documentation describes the following:




    GroupWise 2014 R2 supports Active Directoryâ€Tms single sign-on capabilities allowing users to bypass the GroupWise login process by virtue of logging in once with Active Directory. Both the POA Server and the user workstation must be joined to the same Active Directory domain in order for single sign-on to work.


    IMPORTANT:Active Directory single sign-on is only available for Windows POA servers.



    our POA run under Linux and we can not configure AD users without prompting her passwords.



    LDAP works for both - eDir AD under system and we can import users from both directories.
