GroupWise 2012 User Management

We are currently using a virtual GW8 environment. All servers, except one, is running on SLES 11 SP1 64-bit with eDirectory installed (no OES). The exception is a single NetWare 6.5 server running the primary domain. This is mainly done for user management purposes. The network accounts, which include the GroupWise accounts, are created by someone else using a combination of scripting and JRButils for NetWare by JRB Software. I would like to move GroupWise 2012 but would have to move my primary domain. This would kill the use of the JRButils. My experience only involves the use of ConsoleOne and NetWare domain. My question is, what would be an alternative user management tool/application that could also be used for mass account creation? Any ideas?

You could always use IDM with the GroupWise driver.

You'd need to check with JRB, but if it uses the Admin API, then as long
as you have r/w access to the wpdomain.db the JRButils should still work
fine

What sort of numbers of accounts are we talking about and what in what
form is the source data? I.e. Where is the user names and such data
coming from? Depending on where the data comes from, an IDM connector
might be all you need.
