Shared folders on accounts

I am looking for a good way to list accounts in our GroupWise system that has shared folders under it. We have allot of accounts that are no longer around and want to remove them, but first want to make sure there aren't shared folders tied to them. Once I can list out the accounts that have shared folders, we can decide if they still used or not and go from there. Looking for suggestions on best way to attack this issue.
  • Hi,

    All that I can think of is Riva Reports for GroupWise: http://www.omni-ts.com/messaging.html

    They do shared folder reporting. I'm sure that there are other tools and that others will contribute to this thread :)

    Cheers,

    Dave Parkes' Shariff (can be found at caledonia.net) is a Shared
    Folder Maintenance program. I find it quite handy. Not sure if it
    will just produce a list of accounts with shared folders, but it will
    do things such as move a shared folder from one account to another.
    Worth checking into at least.

  • Yeah, I saw that one, but kind of pricy for what I am trying to do.

    This can be done with the GroupWise object API and VBScript. This code when run using cscript.exe will list the shared and with which they are shared for the currently logged in GroupWise account. I have not tested this using GroupWise 2012 but it works well with GroupWise 8.x.

    [INDENT]listFolders.vbs

    option explicit

    dim GWApplication
    dim GWAccount

    set GWApplication = CreateObject("NovellGroupwareSession")
    set GWAccount = GWApplication.Login()

    WalkFolders GWAccount.RootFolder, ""

    set GWAccount = Nothing

    sub WalkFolders (Folder, PathName)

    [INDENT]dim i

    if Folder.Folders.Count > 0 then
    [INDENT]for i = 1 to Folder.Folders.Count
    [INDENT]wscript.echo PathName
