Save and Activate buttons

Save and Activate buttons

The Save and Activate buttons, in the bottom-left corner of the Management Console, let you Save and Activate the current configuration settings as they now appear within the Management Console for a single Coexistence Manager for GroupWise component. These features are also available on the File menu (as noted in Management Console menus below), but many users prefer having them available at a single click.

When you select either option, a submenu prompts you to specify the component whose configuration data you want to save or activate.

For the Save button:

If you select Directory Connector or Mail Connector: The Save command presents a standard Windows Save As... dialog box. Click Save to save the data to the default configuration file, or specify some other filename and click Save. For the Directory Connector (DC), Save also saves the configuration data for any DC connector that has been created or edited by DC’s Connector Creation Wizard in the current Console session.
IMPORTANT: A new or updated DC connector definition is saved to disk only when the DC configuration file that contains it is saved, from the Management Console (by the Save button, or by selecting Save Configuration File from the File menu). The Connector Creation Wizard itself does not save its definitions, so a connector definition will be lost if you do not explicitly Save the entire configuration file from the Management Console.
If you select Free/Busy Connector, the Console saves the configuration data to the F/B Connector configuration files. (The F/B Connector configuration filenames cannot be changed from their defaults.)

The Activate button: Restarts the selected Coexistence Manager for GroupWise component, and loads the settings currently open in the Console as the active configuration for the component. If the currently open settings have not yet been saved to disk, Coexistence Manager for GroupWise prompts you to Save them before it will execute the Activate command.)

The Console then prompts you to confirm or cancel the Activate command, since it requires restarting (interrupting) the selected component. If you choose to not restart the service or save the open configuration file now, the current configuration settings will remain in effect until the next component restart.

Management Console menus

The Coexistence Manager for GroupWise Management Console File menu options are:

Open Configuration File: Discards any unsaved settings within the Management Console (from the current Console session) for a single Coexistence Manager for GroupWise component, and reloads the last-saved configuration settings for that component. When you select this Open option, a submenu (as shown above) prompts you to specify the component whose configuration file you want to open.
If you select Directory Connector or Mail Connector, the Console presents a standard Windows Open dialog box, with the currently active configuration file selected by default. Click Open to open the selected file, or specify some other configuration file and click Open.
If you select Free/Busy Connector, the Console opens the Free/Busy Connector configuration data into the Console screens. (The F/B Connector configuration files cannot be renamed from their defaults.)
Save Configuration File: Saves the current configuration settings as they now appear within the Management Console for a single Coexistence Manager for GroupWise component. When you select this Save option, a submenu prompts you to specify the component whose configuration data you want to save.
If you select Free/Busy Connector, the Console saves the F/B Connector configuration data to the F/B Connector configuration files. (The F/B Connector configuration filenames cannot be changed from their defaults.)
If you select Directory Connector or Mail Connector: This Save command presents a standard Windows Save As... dialog box. Click Save to save the data to the default configuration file, or specify some other filename and click Save. For Coexistence Manager for GroupWise’s Directory Connector (DC), the Save command also saves the configuration data for any DC connector that has been created or edited by DC’s Connector Creation Wizard in the current Console session.
IMPORTANT: A new or updated DC connector definition is saved to disk only when the DC configuration file that contains it is saved, from the Management Console (Save Configuration File on the File menu). The Connector Creation Wizard itself does not save its definitions, so a connector definition will be lost if you do not explicitly Save the entire configuration file from the Management Console.
Activate Configuration File: Restarts the selected Coexistence Manager for GroupWise component, and loads the settings currently open in the Console as the active configuration for the component. When you select this Activate option, a submenu prompts you to specify the component whose settings you want to activate. (If the currently open settings have not yet been saved to disk, Coexistence Manager for GroupWise prompts you to Save them before it will execute the Activate command.) The Console then prompts you to confirm or cancel the Activate command, since it requires restarting (interrupting) the selected component. If you choose to not restart the service or save the open configuration file now, the current configuration settings will remain in effect until the next component restart.

This screen lets you start and stop any of the Coexistence Manager for GroupWise component services: the Directory Connector, Mail Connector and Free/Busy Connector.

The table lists all installed services by Service Name, and shows the Status of each: Running or Stopped.

To immediately start, stop or restart a service:

NOTE: The Start, Stop and Restart commands issued from this screen are provided here as a convenience, and are not parts of any component configuration file. The command is executed immediately when you click the button, although if you have changed any of the configuration data, Coexistence Manager for GroupWise will require that you Save your changes before it will execute a Start command.
