Screens for an Exchange-to-GroupWise ("E-to-G") connector

These sections describe the screens to configure an Exchange-to-GroupWise ("E-to-G") Connector:

E-to-G: Connector Information

This first screen asks you to name the connector and specify the direction:

Connector Name: The name of the connector, as you want it to appear in the table on the Connector Settings screen. Note that the connector name cannot include any characters that are disallowed for a Windows file or folder name, such as \ / : * ? " < > |
Direction: Select Exchange to GroupWise as the connector type.

Click Next to advance to the next screen.

E-to-G: Source Server Information

Enter this information and access credentials for the Exchange source server:

Domain or Server (the field name depends on the setting of the Use specific domain controller checkbox below): The name of the source server (in a form sufficiently qualified that it can be identified from the CMG Directory Connector server) or Active Directory domain. For example: Mustang or mustang.engineering.
A set of three radio buttons to the right of this Domain or Server field lets you further characterize the source:
Use specific domain controller: Checkbox to determine whether the Wizard will connect to a specific designated Server (named in the preceding field), or to any server within a designated Domain (named in the preceding field). If you mark the checkbox, the name of the adjacent field changes from Domain to Server, so you can require a specific server for the connection.
Username: The username by whose authority the Directory Connector will access the source server:
For coexistence with GroupWise 2012 or GW 8 or 7: This must be a domain administrator account with sufficient rights/permissions to access the source server.
For coexistence with GroupWise 2014: This must be a non-admin account (any non-admin user).
NOTE: It is possible (but uncommon) that access will fail even if you enter the correct credentials here, since the Username can be expressed differently in different contexts. To solve this problem, see in the User Guide’s Troubleshooting Appendix: Novell directory or Active Directory server denies access to Directory Connector account.
Password: Enter the password associated with the Username above.
Port: The port number that the source (AD) server will use to communicate with CMG’s Directory Connector. Quest recommends you leave this value set to its default, unless the host AD system is not using the default ports.
use SSL: Mark this checkbox if you want the CMG DC communications to use a Secure Socket Layer.

When these fields are filled as you want them, click Next (or you can click Back to revisit the preceding screen in the sequence).

E-to-G: Source Object Selection

Use the fields on this screen to specify the objects in the Exchange source server to be processed.

NOTE: To update resources in an Exchange 2003-to-GroupWise connector: An Exchange 2003-to-GroupWise connector cannot create a Resources address book in GroupWise, and therefore cannot update resources when the Resources box is checked here. (CMG was originally designed for Exchange versions 2007 and later, and those later versions, unlike Exchange 2003, treat resources as "users" with an extra attribute set.) Therefore, to update resources by an Exchange 2003-to-GroupWise connector you must delete the msExchResourceSearchProperties conditions that appear (by default) in both filters of both the Provision Filters and Update Filters tabs. See Advanced Settings tab: object filtering features below.
Source Server: The name of the source server. CMG prefills this field with the value you entered for Server on the preceding Source Server Information screen.
Source OU: In the adjacent container subtree display box, select the OU(s) that you want to be the root(s) of the subtree(s) containing the objects this connector will copy to the target directory. (You can select one or more OUs.) Each subdomain and adjacent domain appear here with their own checkboxes, and must be explicitly selected to be included with this connector's source OUs. Selecting a higher-level OU does not include all of its lower-level OUs.

When these fields are filled with the correct information, click Next to advance to the next screen (or click Back to revisit an earlier screen in the sequence).
