Installation of GW Messenger 18

Can this be installed on the GroupWise 18 server or should it be on it's own server?

Hi,

It can be on your GroupWise 18 server.

Re: Installation of GW Messenger 18

Thanks Laura! We are adding Mobility also and read that it needed to be on a different server than WebAccess due to port 80/443 conflicts. Wasn't sure about Messenger.

Re: Installation of GW Messenger 18

i don't know how big is your groupwise deployment, how many users are working/connected.

I have install Messenger on a separate virtual Server and so are on a secure side to have both applications running correctly.

This is my experience, but it is your choice!

We are a small agency with about 200 email users. I will keep all of this in mind. Thanks!

Installed GW Messenger accepting mostly the defaults. Only issue is that there is no syncing of GroupWise email accounts (I am assuming from the local database) to the Messenger user list. Can we not sync using the GroupWise LDAP server and the local GroupWise email user database?

Re: Installation of GW Messenger 18

We had an issue with Messenger logs (I believe...) taking down our new SLES 12 SP4 server that hosts GroupWise. We decided not to reinstall since our SUSU support was not renewed and we managed to get GroupWise back up.

Question: Can Messenger run on Windows? I cannot find the installer for Messenger 18.1.1 for Windows Server.

I was afraid of that. Since we no longer get Linux support with our GroupWise purchase (and have had three SuSE server crashes in as many weeks with no support - which we were unaware until we needed it to recover), we were looking at migrating the entire system to Windows. Messenger gives us another conundrum now with it only working on Linux. Ugh...
