E-to-G: GroupWise Target Information (for GW7, or GW8 with postoffice configuration)

This screen appears differently depending on whether you are connecting to GroupWise 7 or 8 and, if connecting to GroupWise 8, whether you have chosen to install its new postoffice configuration or the original shared-address-book configuration. This version of this screen is for a connector to GroupWise 7, or to GroupWise 8 configured for its new postoffice configuration. The other version of this screen is documented separately below.

Enter the requested GroupWise information, and click Next to advance to the next screen (or click Back to revisit an earlier screen in the sequence).

GroupWise Domain Path: UNC path to your GroupWise domain file wpdomain.db, as specified during the GroupWise installation. Enter this value in UNC form, and use the raw server name (i.e., not fully qualified) within the path. For example, use \\GWISE1\sys\mail\gwdom rather than \\GWISE1.quest.local\sys\mail\gwdom.
Account: Account name for the GroupWise Domain Path cited above.
Password: Password associated with the Account user name above.
GroupWise Domain Name: A non-GroupWise domain where GroupWise will hold the contacts created or modified by this connector.
GroupWise Post Office Name: An external post office accessed via the GroupWise Domain Name cited above.
GroupWise SMTP Domains: The SMTP domain name (or names) for the GroupWise mail server.
Enable Domain Routing: Mark this checkbox if you will use subdomains for mail routing. If you mark this checkbox, you must also enter the target’s subdomain name (for example, sub1.xyzcorp.com) into the associated Routing Domain text box. This is the subdomain portion of the addresses (after the @ symbol) that will route mail from the target environment back to the source.

E-to-G: GroupWise Target Information (for shared-address-book configuration)

This screen appears differently depending on whether you are connecting to GroupWise 7 or 8 and, if connecting to GroupWise 8, whether you have chosen to install its new postoffice configuration or the original shared-address-book configuration. This version of this screen is for a connector to GroupWise 8 with the original shared-address-book configuration. The other version of this screen is documented separately above.

Enter the information the connector will need to process object records for copying into the GroupWise target:

Shared Address Book: The name of the GroupWise shared address book that Coexistence Manager for GroupWise will use to hold the contacts collected by this connector from Active Directory. (Note that every E-to-G connector is defined with a shared address book name, which must be unique. Coexistence Manager for GroupWise will detect and disallow a shared address book name if another shared address book already exists with the same name.)
GroupWise Username: If the Shared Address Book cited above does not already exist when this connector runs, the Username entered here will tell GroupWise to create it, and will be identified as the sender of email invitations to other GroupWise users to share it.
Enable Domain Routing: Mark this checkbox if you will use sub­domains for mail routing. If you mark this checkbox, you must also enter the target’s subdomain name (for example, sub1.xyzcorp.com) into the associated Routing Domain text box. This is the subdomain portion of the addresses (after the @ symbol) that will route mail from the target environment back to the source.
Manage shared address book (checkbox): Determines whether the connector will generate invitations to all GroupWise users to share the address book. If the checkbox is marked, the connector will:
If the checkbox is unmarked, the connector will update the contents of the address book(s), and will not invite new users. Note that these invitation emails will work only with the native GroupWise client; GroupWise web clients are not supported.

When these fields are filled with the correct information, click Next to advance to the next screen (or click Back to revisit an earlier screen in the sequence).

E-to-G: Connector Order Management

This screen provides a table of all previously defined connectors, with a checkbox corresponding to each connector in the list. Mark the checkbox for each connector that must complete its run before the current connector will be permitted to start.

Then click Next to advance to the next screen (or click Back to revisit an earlier screen in the sequence).

E-to-G: Connector Scheduling

This screen lets you schedule this connector’s runs in much the same way that you define a recurring meeting in GroupWise or Exchange. You can define more than one recurrence pattern for any single connector; if you do, the scheduled runs will be the sum of all such recurrence patterns defined here. That is, if more than one recurrence pattern appears in the table (bottom half of this screen), the connector will run for all of the scheduled patterns that appear in the table.

Click the Add button.
Simply Delete it from the table, and then Add a new recurrence pattern to replace it.

Note that it is possible to define a connector without scheduling it for automatic recurring runs. For example, some admins like to have one or more unscheduled connectors defined that can be run as-needed, by the Run Connector Now feature in the Management Console.

When the table appears as you want it, click Next to complete the Wizard and create (or edit) the connector, or click Back to revisit an earlier screen.

Be sure to see Other options you can set per connector, to see if any of the feature options described there may be useful or necessary to your coexistence scenario.
