Installing two or more Coexistence Manager for GroupWise components

You can install, configure and run one, two or three Coexistence Manager for GroupWise components in any order you like, although the Directory Connector provides directory updates the other Coexistence Manager for GroupWise connectors may need.

NOTE: Quest strongly recommends you review the System Requirements, deployment options and configuration instructions for all of the Coexistence Manager for GroupWise components you intend to use before installing the first component. Coexistence Manager for GroupWise system requirements are documented in the RTM Release Notes that accompany every Coexistence Manager for GroupWise release.

Installation instructions for Coexistence Manager for GroupWise components appear in the Getting Started sections of the Release Notes and the Coexistence Manager for GroupWise Quick-Start Guide. After installation, Coexistence Manager for GroupWise components must be configured before they can be used, and those instructions appear in the remaining chapters of this User Guide and (for the Free/Busy Connector) in the FBC Configuration Guide.

About Quest license keys

Coexistence Manager for GroupWise will run only after applying a valid license key. Quest Software Inc. sells Coexistence Manager for GroupWise license keys by numbers of users served within the combined GroupWise-Exchange environment. A single license key is valid for all three Coexistence Manager for GroupWise components.

You can obtain license keys by contacting your Quest sales representative. When you obtain a license key, you must install it to enable the product. A license key is installed in the Coexistence Manager for GroupWise Management Console. The installation of a valid license key authorizes and enables the use of all Coexistence Manager for GroupWise components.

The Coexistence Manager for GroupWise Management Console

Coexistence Manager for GroupWise components are configured within Coexistence Manager for GroupWise’s Management Console application, where you specify the names and locations of mail servers and directories, locations of web services, comm port numbers, scope of operations, operational preferences, scheduled runs, and so forth. The Management Console is used to configure all three Coexistence Manager for GroupWise components. Different components’ settings are managed on different screens.

The Coexistence Manager for GroupWise Management Console is a friendly interface between you and a set of configuration files that Coexistence Manager for GroupWise components read every time they are started. Configuration settings for Coexistence Manager for GroupWise’s different components are saved in separate configuration files: a Configuration.xml file for each of the Directory Connector and Mail Connector (two files saved in the different Coexistence Manager for GroupWise component subfolders), and another set of configuration files for the Free/Busy Connector. The Management Console provides GUI screens with labeled fields to simplify entering and editing the configuration settings in those files.

The next few pages describe the basic operating concepts of the Coexistence Manager for GroupWise Management Console. Field notes for the three components appear in later chapters, with the component configuration instructions.

To start the Coexistence Manager for GroupWise Management Console:

Select the Management Console start-up shortcut from your Windows Start menu. The Coexistence Manager for GroupWise installer copies this shortcut to the submenu of every installed Coexistence Manager for GroupWise component (use any of these shortcuts):

When you start the Management Console, Coexistence Manager for GroupWise automatically loads the currently active configuration values for all three Coexistence Manager for GroupWise components. Once the Management Console is running, however, component configuration data is saved and opened separately, for one component at a time, as shown here.

Navigation in Coexistence Manager for GroupWise's Management Console

The Management Console runs in a window with a navigation sidebar down the left side (see sample screen below). The list of the Console’s screens in the sidebar lets you select which screen you want to display. Console screens are grouped by component, and you may view them and work on them in any order. The screens in the Common group (bottom of the sidebar list) contain features that pertain to all three components.
