Setup LDAP

We have GroupWise 2012 running on a Windows 2008R2 machine with eDir 8.8 SP7. Last week we migrated our last Netware server 6.5 SP8 to Windows 2008R. The server is still running. Our goal is to remove the Netware server and the client from all PCs. My main issue is, I can't see the LDAP running on the GroupWise Server. I can see LDAP on all Windows servers and the one Netware server. 1). Do I need to install MS LDAP on the GroupWise server? It lists NLDAP as running. 2) Because it is running GroupWise, Should NLDAP be on another port? 3) When /if I get this working, will everyone need to have a GroupWise password or will it pickup the eDir Password?

Thank you,
John

Re: Setup LDAP

Hi John

Having eDir on the same server is sufficient and should not require a change of ports. Once you have setup LDAP authentication your customers will use their eDir password to login to GroupWise.

Let us know how it goes.

Re: Setup LDAP

Thank you for you quick response.
I am not sure I understand. Do I point LDAP authentication to any of the Windows LDAP servers or do I need to setup Windows LDAP on the GroupWise server. Also, will this allow me to get rid on the Novell Client (not GroupWise) on the user's PC.
Thanks,
John

Re: Setup LDAP

Hi John,

There is no need to setup Windows LDAP as eDir takes care of all that. Just point the LDAP server in the GroupWise configuration to any of your Windows servers running eDir - it can even be the same box that's running GroupWise provided that eDir is installed on it.

If you have no further need for the Novell Client you may remove it.

Let us know how it goes or if you have further questions 🙂

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

Re: Setup LDAP


Not sure what your end goal is here. Do you want to continue to have GW users auth against eDir using LDAP, or do you want to transition to using Active Directory as the LDAP Auth source?

Re: Setup LDAP

We are trying to have GW users authenticate against eDir using LDAP. We use Contactwise with GroupWise. The version of ContactWise we use requires eDir through LDAP. We are looking to get rid of the Novell client.
