Howto create a GrpWise18 user with a specific File ID (FID)

I am looking to create a user account in Groupwise18 with a specific FID in order to upload mailbox archives into it. Would appreciate any useful help as needed.

PS: Do not have consoleOne installed with Groupwise18.

Hi Syed,

From GroupWise 2014 onwards you use the REST api to create users with a specific FID: https://www.novell.com/support/kb/doc.php?id=7014868

How would I access an archive (with password) for a deleted user? Would it still need the password if a create a user with the same FID?

On current code, if the FID matches, you don't need the archive's password. Generally it depends a little on when (i.e. with which client build) the archive has been touched. If it was a GW2014 or later build, the following would apply:

- you can simply rename the archive path name and access the archive as someone else provided you know the password of the archive

- if you create a user with the FID of the archive this user can access the archive without knowing the password. The user's name does NOT have to match, it's just about the FID.

 

 

If you like it: like it.
