Installing two or more CMG components

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

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

Installation instructions for CMG components appear in the Getting Started sections of the Release Notes and the CMG Quick-Start Guide. After installation, CMG 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 CMG license keys by numbers of users served within the combined GroupWise-Exchange environment. A single license key is valid for all three CMG 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 CMG Management Console. The installation of a valid license key authorizes and enables the use of all CMG components.

The CMG Management Console

CMG components are configured within CMG’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 CMG components. Different components’ settings are managed on different screens.

The CMG Management Console is a friendly interface between you and a set of configuration files that CMG components read every time they are started. Configuration settings for CMG’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 CMG 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 CMG Management Console. Field notes for the three components appear in later chapters, with the component configuration instructions.

To start the CMG Management Console:

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

When you start the Management Console, CMG automatically loads the currently active configuration values for all three CMG 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 CMG'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.
