Shared folders on accounts

I am looking for a good way to list accounts in our GroupWise system that has shared folders under it. We have allot of accounts that are no longer around and want to remove them, but first want to make sure there aren't shared folders tied to them. Once I can list out the accounts that have shared folders, we can decide if they still used or not and go from there. Looking for suggestions on best way to attack this issue.

Re: Shared folders on accounts

Hi,

All that I can think of is Riva Reports for GroupWise: http://www.omni-ts.com/messaging.html

They do shared folder reporting. I'm sure that there are other tools and that others will contribute to this thread 🙂

Cheers,

Dave Parkes' Shariff (can be found at caledonia.net) is a Shared
Folder Maintenance program. I find it quite handy. Not sure if it
will just produce a list of accounts with shared folders, but it will
do things such as move a shared folder from one account to another.
Worth checking into at least.

Re: Shared folders on accounts

Yeah, I saw that one, but kind of pricy for what I am trying to do.

Hi,

Perhaps JRB can assist with one of their utilities: http://www.jrbsoftware.com/jrbutils_nw/choosing/groupwise/

This can be done with the GroupWise object API and VBScript. This code when run using cscript.exe will list the shared and with which they are shared for the currently logged in GroupWise account. I have not tested this using GroupWise 2012 but it works well with GroupWise 8.x.

[INDENT]listFolders.vbs

option explicit

dim GWApplication
dim GWAccount

set GWApplication = CreateObject("NovellGroupwareSession")
set GWAccount = GWApplication.Login()

WalkFolders GWAccount.RootFolder, ""

set GWAccount = Nothing

sub WalkFolders (Folder, PathName)

[INDENT]dim i

if Folder.Folders.Count > 0 then
[INDENT]for i = 1 to Folder.Folders.Count
[INDENT]wscript.echo PathName & "/" & Folder.Folders.Item(i).name
walkFolders Folder.Folders.Item(i), PathName & "/" & Folder.Folders.Item(i).name[/INDENT]
next[/INDENT]
end if[/INDENT]

end sub[/INDENT]

The output is comma separated value and can be redirected into a file which can be imported into a spreadsheet or database for analysis and reporting.

Iterating through multiple users is done using a trusted application key and the multilogin method. If there is interest I can post sample code.
