Coexistence Manager for GroupWise 1.7.1 - Release Notes

Upgrade and compatibility

There is no need to uninstall a version 1.5.5 or later Directory Connector, or any version 1.5.x Mail Connector or Free/Busy Connector, before installing this new version. The CMG AutoRun application will detect these previous versions and install the new software accordingly.

CMG versions earlier that 1.5.5 must be uninstalled before you can install the current 1.7 version in its place. Use Windows' Add/Remove Programs feature (in the Control Panel) to uninstall the earlier version, and then install the current version as a fresh install. This process will preserve your configuration settings from the earlier version.

Upon upgrading the Free/Busy Connector to CMG 1.7, the F/B Management Console may ask if you want to "save changes" to the configuration even if you haven't made any changes. This may be confusing, but the Console is actually detecting changes that accompanied the FBC upgrade, so just confirm that you want to save the changes, and the Console will not ask again.

Product licensing

Quest Coexistence Manager for GroupWise is a metered-use product that requires the application of a valid license key. When the product is installed you must install a Quest license key before you can run any CMG Windows service and before the CMG Management Console will save any configuration entries. The license key must be installed in the CMG Management Console, in the Common | Licenses screen.

You can obtain your first or a subsequent license key by contacting a Quest Software sales representative. For either a trial or perpetual license, the key takes the form of a file CoexManagerGroupWise-###-#####.asc (where ###-##### represents your unique license number), sent to you from Quest Licensing as an email attachment.

If you are upgrading from an earlier CMG version, the automated upgrade process will transfer the existing license key into the new version, so you need not re-install it.

To install your license key if you are installing CMG for the first time:

1
Copy to your Desktop, or to some other convenient location, the license file (CoexManagerGroupWise-###-#####.asc) sent to you by email from Quest Licensing.

Upgrade and installation instructions

CMG’s three primary components are installed, configured and run independently. Each component’s operations require the connection and coordination of three separate environments: the GroupWise and Exchange environments, and the server(s) between them hosting the CMG applications. CMG operations also require the use of accounts with suitable access rights to Exchange and GroupWise, and of course the CMG components themselves must be configured for your own environment and operational preferences.

Before installing CMG, it is important to document a deployment plan. The plan should specify the components, where they will be installed, and how many instances will be required. You can install and configure the CMG components in any order you like, but consider that the Directory Connector provides directory updates the Free/Busy Connector needs to facilitate its functionality.

It is possible to install two or more CMG components on a single server, but some production environments with a greater volume of message and free/busy traffic may benefit from installing on separate servers for optimal performance. One common approach involves installing the three CMG components to three separate computers, one for each component.

Environments with very high message volume may also deploy multiple Mail Connectors and/or install the Free/Busy components on different computers, such as:

For more information, review Mail Connector Deployment Options in chapter 3 of the CMG User Guide.

CMG’s Free/Busy Connector subcomponents are deployed in different configurations for different combinations of GroupWise environment, Exchange environment, and single- vs. muli-namespace environment. These scenarios and their associated deployment considerations are fully described in the FBC Configuration Guide.

The relative processing and hardware requirements of the different components will vary based on the typical activity in each environment. However, the Free/Busy Connector will see heavier demand in many environments. The Mail Connector will also have requirements around mail and calendar processing, but the volume of required updates may not be excessive for many GroupWise and Exchange coexistence environments. Directory Connector activity is typically scheduled and requires resources only during active processing. As a result, the demands and requirements are typically lower than either the Mail Connector or Free/Busy Connector.
