Coexistence Manager for GroupWise 1.7 - Release Notes

Upgrade and compatibility

There is no need to uninstall a version 1.5.5 or later Directory Connector, or any version 1.5.x Mail Connector or Free/Busy Connector, before installing this new version. The CMG AutoRun application will detect these previous versions and install the new software accordingly.

Upgrading from CMG versions earlier than 1.5.5

A 1.5.5 or earlier Directory Connector (only) must be uninstalled before you can install the current 1.7 version in its place. Use Windows' Add/Remove Programs feature (in the Control Panel) to uninstall the earlier Directory Connector version, and then install the current DC version as a fresh install. This process will preserve your configuration settings from the earlier Directory Connector version.

Upgrading the Free/Busy Connector

Upon upgrading the Free/Busy Connector to CMG 1.7, the F/B Management Console may ask if you want to "save changes" to the configuration even if you haven't made any changes. This may be confusing, but the Console is actually detecting changes that accompanied the FBC upgrade, so just confirm that you want to save the changes, and the Console will not ask again.

Product licensing

Quest Coexistence Manager for GroupWise is a metered-use product that requires the application of a valid license key. When the product is installed you must install a Quest license key before you can run any CMG Windows service and before the CMG Management Console will save any configuration entries. The license key must be installed in the CMG Management Console, in the Common | Licenses screen.

You can obtain your first or a subsequent license key by contacting a Quest Software sales representative. For either a trial or perpetual license, the key takes the form of a file CoexManagerGroupWise-###-#####.asc (where ###-##### represents your unique license number), sent to you from Quest Licensing as an email attachment.

If you are upgrading from an earlier CMG version, the automated upgrade process will transfer the existing license key into the new version, so you need not re-install it.

To install your license key if you are installing CMG for the first time:

1
Copy to your Desktop, or to some other convenient location, the license file (CoexManagerGroupWise-###-#####.asc) sent to you by email from Quest Licensing.
