Coexistence Manager for GroupWise 1.7 - Release Notes

SQL server requirements

CMG Directory Connector requires access to a Microsoft SQL Server, installed on the CMG workstation or by connecting to an existing SQL instance, with a minimum of 20GB free disk space. Note:

For best performance, particularly at sites with a large number of groups or domains, Quest recommends a full-featured (non-Express) edition of SQL Server.
