Re: Resources to external services duplicate name

Correct, we are using a NOWS licensing model based on computers, not users. I just doubled checked that and it is.

In that case you have no issue. You can create Groupwise Mailboxes
(Users) until you run out of characters for new names.

Hi Patrik

Let me do some testing in the morning and see what I can find for you to, hopefully, overcome this problem.

'till then... cheers,

Re: Resources to external services duplicate name

Hi Patrik,

I have a tried many different approaches to overcome the issue that you are seeing and am unable to find a solution for you 😞

I have taken the liberty to create an enhancement request on your behalf. You can vote for it here: https://ideas.microfocus.com/MFI/novell-gw/Idea/Detail/1302

Note: you will have to create a separate MicoFocus "Ideas" account in order to vote or create your own enhancement requests - your forum credentials won't work.

I am so sorry about not having a more immediate solution to your challenge.

If your mailbox license count is not an issue for you, the only work around that I can think of is to have a standard GroupWise mailbox with the necessary people granted proxy rights to it. Then you can define First & Last name. Not ideal, but a work around - again, assuming that the extra mailbox license won't be an issue for you!

Apologies again for misunderstanding your original question involving the usage of a Resource.

Please feel free to come back to forums with any other questions that you may have 😉

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

Re: Resources to external services duplicate name

Thank you very much for your help Laura and for submitting the suggestion!

We will probably go ahead with our initial workaround with a new account that operates as the shared e-mail/role over time since we cannot count on the suggestion/idea to come through, and if so it could be a long time 🙂

Kind regards
Patrik

Thank you for clarifying Massimo!

We'll try to not run out of characters to soon 😉

Kind regards
