Groupwise & mobility audit

I need to run a one time audit (licensing/rights/users/etc) against an eDirectory/OES-Linux/GroupWise system. Since this is just a one time run doing it with Sentinal seems like it might be a bit of overkill (and they are not interested in ongoing). What do you recommend (free or built into the current products) for pulling that information these days?

LMS Assistant @ http://www.novell.com/licensing/lms/tools.html doesn't seem to exist anymore. I remember using that quite a bit for licensing audits, but not seeing it now.

On Netware I remember running trustee.nlm & a few other nlms to pull rights/trustee reports, but don't remember what to run on OES-Linux. I especially need to track down issues where users/groups have far more rights than they should.

For Groupwise 12 & earlier I recall how to pull reports such as user total, mailbox usage, etc using C1, however not familiar with doing any of that in 2014. Would be nice to pull a report for datasync/mobility to see which users are using it & devices associated too.

They have zenworks zcm11.2, but a spotcheck for the client & looking at the server for agent installs show it deployed no where.

I am guessing there are better/easier ways to run such a 1 time audit these days?

Thanks!

We're not running GW2014 yet, so I can't speak to that.

BUT, LMS Assistant is on the ftp.

Re: Groupwise & mobility audit

Thanks for the link to LMS. After running it against ldap, the output doesnt look to be human readable. It also doesn't look like it runs against GW2014 since it references C1 access.
