7: Specify GroupWise Passwords

This screen appears only if the Set user password option was marked on screen #4: Select GroupWise Administrative Operations. Specify how you want to change users’ GroupWise passwords, and click Next.

Set a single common password value for all users: Changes the users’ GroupWise passwords to the common New password value specified below, for all users listed in the designated user-list .csv file. The program will copy this value to the Password column of the .csv file.
Set each user’s password to the corresponding value in the user list (.csv) file: Uses the password designated for each user in the Password column of the associated user-list .csv file.
Set random passwords for all users: Changes users’ GroupWise passwords to random strings of 12 alphanumeric characters (random and unique for each user), and copies these new passwords to the Password column of the user-list .csv file, to facilitate the migration process and document the passwords for future reference.

8: Select GroupWise Visibility

This screen appears only if the Set user visibility option was marked on screen #4: Select GroupWise Administrative Operations.

Select one of the available options here to specify the preferred scope of user visibility in the GroupWise directory, and click Next.

GroupWise visibility options are:

None: User is not visible anywhere, and the user account will not get synched to AD by the Quest CMG Connector.
System: User is visible to everyone.
Domain: User is visible only to other users in the same domain.
PostOffice: User is visible only to other users in the same PostOffice.

9: Select Exchange Administrative Operations

This screen appears only if the Exchange administrative functions option was marked on screen #2: Select Operations. Specify which Exchange admin functions you want to perform (see the table below), and click Next.

The available function categories appearing on this screen depend on the Target Exchange System you designated on screen #2. We therefore describe this screen separately, in separate subsections for each of the three target types:

Migrating to a proprietary Exchange, or to a non-Office-365 hosted Exchange

The Exchange Administrative Operations screen offers these options when migrating to a proprietary Exchange 2016, 2013 or 2010, or to a Hosted Exchange (other than Office 365):

Set forwarding from Exchange to GroupWise: Tells the program to display a screen (later in the program sequence) to set mail-forwarding rules from the target back to the source, for all users in the user-list csv file. Typically set when target AD objects are mail-enabled but not yet migrated, so Exchange will correctly route mail to users who are still active in GroupWise.
Remove forwarding from Exchange to GroupWise: Tells the program to display a screen (later in the program sequence) to remove mail-forwarding rules from the target back to the source, for all users in the user-list .csv file. Typically selected when users are migrated to Exchange, to remove the forwarding rules that previously (before they were migrated) routed mail to them in GroupWise.
Remove user free/busy forwarding to GroupWise: Tells the program to remove forwarding of CMG free/busy queries to GroupWise for all users in the user-list .csv file. Typically selected when users are migrated to Exchange, to remove the forwarding rules that previously (before they were migrated) routed F/B queries for them to GroupWise.
Remove directory synchronization exclusion: Removes the attribute value (in AD) that disables dirsyncs in the Exchange-to-GroupWise direction by Quest CMG Directory Connector. Removing the attribute (by this feature) enables bidirectional dirsyncs, including in the E-to-G direction. For more information, see the CmgExcludeFromDirSync parameter notes in the Migrator for GroupWise Program Parameters Reference.
Mailbox-enable existing Active Directory accounts (option disabled for Hosted Exchange target): Creates a new Exchange mailbox for every user in the designated user-list .csv file whose Exchange account has already been mail-enabled, and for every security object found in the target Active Directory. (When migrating to a proprietary Exchange target, typically users’ Exchange accounts are first created by Quest Migrator for NDS, and then mail-enabled by Migrator for GroupWise’s AD Object Merge Tool.)
NOTE: This option can also create mailbox-enabled users for AD contacts where there are no corresponding AD users, by setting mboxfromcontact=1 in the [ActiveDirectory] section of gwmigapp.ini. (See that parameter entry in the Migrator for GroupWise Program Parameters Reference for more information.)

Select any number and combination of features you like, and then click Next.
