GroupWise Help Required || Urgent

hi Experts,

please help me on below queries -

(A) Create Contacts in Global Address book in Novell GroupWise server manually. i have exchange servers in my Organization and i want to view my exchange mailboxes in GroupWise Address book so that my users can directly send mails to exchange users via Address lists.(external contacts in exchange are known as mail contacts/contacts. also i dont want to use any third party tool for Dirsync/migration purpose).

(B) Set Forwarder on GroupWise Mailbox so that new incoming mail will be deliver to remote domain recipient (exchange mailbox) with or without delivering to GroupWise Mailbox locally). i don't want to configure client rules to achieve this goal. i need this to be done via central administration tool for GroupWise servers.

(C) if we create External Contact with different Email Domain Name (i.e. @XYZ.Com, which is my exchange SMTP Domain) and we have Primary Domain as @ABC.Com (this is my GroupWise SMTP Domain), in this condition can we assign additional email address to external User. so that my external user will have both GroupWise SMTP Email Address and Exchange SMTP Address. in this case new mails to my GroupWise ID should be delivered to my exchange Mailbox because i don't want to keep mailbox in Groupwise

it is really urgent and any information or step by step docs or Urls are really appreciated.

i have gone through the non-groupwise domain creation document but not sure what server and domain name entries i have to put during configuration for Non-Groupwise domain and external users. also what would be GIWA configuration. please provide me the SOPs if any one has already done this in past.

regards,

Aanand Karki
  • Um...you will really need to read up on the documentation of GroupWise, either that or get yourself a good consultant. What you have requested is far beyond what I am willing to do to explain to you....it would take hours. Perhaps if you were to take one task at a time, it would not seem so overwhelming? But seriously...you really need to read up on GroupWise Admin Documentation.

    You are straying enough off the beaten track (away from the fundimental
    assumptions of both Exchange and GroupWise) that there isn't much written
    for a specific version of GroupWise. Do not shy away from anything written
    for different versions of GroupWise on this topic since there has been
    very little change in how it is done since about GW5 on through to GW2012.
    GW 2012 does have more explicit Exchange coexsistance documentation, much
    of which does apply to older versions, so do check that out.
    Considering the urgency, you might consider subcontracting in a GroupWise
    expert consultant for this piece.

    The GroupWise external Domains/PostOffices can do a whole lot of things,
    the trick is to only put in what you think is needed and don't worry about
    trying to fill every field as they are there to cover every possible use
    of them.

    If your two systems are on different internet domains, why do you need the
    forwarding? Are your users known by both domains and need to be routed
    accordingly? Its been over a decade since I've dealt with such routing, so
    not something I can quickly/cheaply just write down.

    This is all handled by our new GroupWise/Exchange coexistence solution.
    There's no need to create anything manually on either side. With
    coexistence configured, users on both sides automatically sync as
    contacts on the other side, plus you also get free/busy searching.
    Here's the documention on coexistence.

    contact your friendly Novell sales rep or partner for more assistance.
