Upgrade and installation instructions

See Upgrade and compatibility above for important notes and requirements pertaining to upgrading from certain earlier CMG versions.

If you choose to not disable UAC while installing CMG, then you must perform this procedure for CMG to work properly:

Review the Deployment considerations above, and map out your intended deployment before you begin to install CMG components.
In the AutoRun utility you can browse product information including the Prerequisites and all CMG Documentation before installing the product.
Verify that your environment conforms to the System requirements specified above. Several of the required third-party components may be downloaded from links on the AutoRun Prerequisites tab.

The checker can also be run independently from your Windows Start menu, in the Quest Inc. | Coexistence Manager for GroupWise group. The Prerequisites Checker log file is written to %SystemDrive%\ProgramData\Quest\.

Click Finish from the last screen to complete the installation. The CMG Installer then exits, and returns you to the Autorun utility, on the Install tab. If you are installing the Free/Busy Connector and have marked the Prerequisites Checker checkbox, that wizard now runs (in a separate window).

CMG component operations are configured and controlled by settings and values entered in a Management Console—for names and locations of mail servers and directories, scope of operations, operational options, scheduled runs, and so forth. The CMG Management Console is used to configure all three CMG components, although different components’ settings are managed on different screens.

Detailed configuration instructions for CMG components are beyond the scope of these installation instructions. Configuration instructions and pertinent notes are provided in the CMG User Guide.

Check the box Use Existing Configuration.
Click Set Configuration.
