GroupWise LDAP authentication (AD)

I thought I'd ask, even though it seems the settings confirm it's one or the other, but...

Can you operate single users in LDAP authentication mode, with some remaining in GroupWise passwords? Can you mix them basically on the same PO?

If I was to enable LDAP authentication on the PO, does that mean every user on the PO suddenly cannot login without using their LDAP credentials? Does their GroupWise password get forgotten from that point, even if I switch back again?

Many thanks, Alan

The question you are asking is answered here:

Hi,

Just something to add... the GroupWise password is not forgotten. If you ever turn LDAP authentication off those old passwords will become active again.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley
