There are two Scenarios which are addressed in this Article:
1) Some user have not accepted the Shared Addressbook
2) How will new users get the Shared Adressbook?
What is the best way to get the addressbook shared ONLY for the users which didn't accept the addressbook or to new created GroupWise users?
The re-sending of the shared address book invitation to certain users needs to be done manually.
Firstly, Coexistence Manager for GroupWise (CMG) will not send out invitations to the Shared Addressbook as long as gwws-manage-shared-addressbook is set to false. However, even when setting it to true, CMG will not send any invitations to GroupWise users who are present on the ACL of the address book already, regardless of the invitation-status.
Secondly, there are five different states through which the invitation can be reflected: Accepted, Rejected, Opened, Deleted, Pending.
1- "Pending" will only be shown if the POA is unable to receive a status or the users have not read the invitation yet, which is why this cannot be used as a basis for action. If there is a problem with the POA receiving the status, then this needs to be solved first.
2- When the status is shown as "Accepted" no action needs to be taken.
3- When the status is "Rejected", "Opened" or "Deleted", then, the following steps can be undertaken to re-send the shared addressbook invitation:
[- alternatively, the last step can be done by the CMG Directory Connector as well, however, the gwws-manage-shared-addressbook would need to be set to true]
