AddProxy utility

Why and when to use AddProxy

Use the AddProxy utility if you have determined that this is the best way for the other Migrator for GroupWise applications to access your users’ GroupWise source data. This choice, and other options, are explained in chapter 3 of the Migrator for GroupWise Pre-Migration Planning Guide—see the topic Method of Access to GroupWise User Data.

The AddProxy program can be executed automatically from a network login script, and can therefore be virtually transparent to end users. As each user logs in to GroupWise, the AddProxy utility automatically logs the successful procurement of proxy rights for his or her account, in a .csv log file. The .csv log file can then serve as the user-list input file for Quest Administrator-Driven Batch Migrator program.

The AddProxy utility should be installed and configured to run early in the pre-migration process, as documented in the Migrator for GroupWise Scenarios Guide. AddProxy will run only upon each user's next login, but that may not be a daily or even weekly occurrence for some users. Quest therefore recommends that you install and configure AddProxy as part of the Pre-Migration Preparations. The process instructions then call for several other administrative tasks in the Pre-Migration Preparations and Batch Migration Process instructions before the first migration program run, which should allow enough time for most users to log off and back on again.
