Is proxy user list dynamic?

Hi all,

I don't know if this post is in the right place. Think it is client (8.x) related...

Situation
We are currently about to begin moving a large number of users to newly created postoffices. The users will be moved from Groupwise 8.0.2HP3 to Groupwise 12.0.1 (Build Date: 09-06-12). In a test environment we've moved users from one post office to the other and the proxy user list seems to be static.

Question
Is there a way to change the proxy list automatically? I mean the one under the online button.

Any help greatly appreciated.

With kind regards,
Joost Brenters

  • Hi Joost,

    To the best of my knowledge the proxy list is static. If you move a user you will need to manually remove them from the proxy list and re-add them. I find the same thing with multi-user calendars.

    Cheers,

    Laura is correct - it's static and tends to break with moves.

    There is no dynamic or gwcheck process that checks all of these and
    rebuilds a list. The proxy list merely represents a snapshot in time. It
    may be incomplete, and it may also include accounts that no longer
    exists or to which access has been pulled. Think of the proxy list as a
    browser bookmark list, and you'll get the idea.
