We recently moved a customer from a Novell environment to a Windows domain. They need to open Groupwise to reference old email. The mail settings always adds a "Novell Default Settings" when opening Outlook which hangs. If I edit the Mail settings to always use the Outlook profile, Outlook opens fine. However, when the users open Groupwise to reference an old email, the application crashes when they open an email. This also occurs when they search for an email. Is there any way I can give the users the ability to use both?

Hi-
First off I am really new to eDirectory.

I have 2 servers:

Server 1 - Windows 2003 / EDirectory 8.7.3 / Server is part of an Windows Domain Active Directory.
 
Server 2 - Windows 2008 / EDirectory 8.8 SP7 / Server is a standalone

*Backup software Backupexec
 
Objective:
 
We would like to take all Edirectory Settings/Certificates/Data/User Information from Server 1 (Windows 2003) and restore it to Server 2 (Windows 2008).

Part of this exercise is to test the we are backing up the proper data incase of a major issue on Server 1. We need to make sure that if the windows 2003 box crashes that we would be able the perform a restore from backup very quickly.

Also, the eDirectoy is only used for email (Groupwise) so it is a very basic setup

Could anyone tell me best practices for backup and restore and/or point me in the direction of solid documentation on how to complete this task.

Thanks in advance

I have a customer running GroupWise. I believe it is 6.5. Our Novell guy tells me the server cannot be upgraded. I know nothing of Novell. Is there a way to export the mailboxes (either on the server or the client) to import them into Outlook or Exchange?

Hey all,

 We are moving from groupwise and will be using office 365 for email. Do any of you guys have any good tools that you have used to do this migration. We have 400 or so accounts to move any help would be great.

Thanks!

Hi all,

I have an exchange network with outlook clients. Another company uses groupwise for there email client.

I am noticing that when we send them meeting invitations and if they deny the invitation it doesnt show in there outlook meeting tracker of outlook the correct response status? I would assume if would show as denied, or acceptied like my outlook clients do. It ust says none.

Why is that?

Hi,

A few months ago we upgrade to GW 8 running on Win Server 2003.  In the process of migrating this over to Win 2008 R2 Standard and then wanting to upgrade to GW 2012.  

We live in remote Northern Canada and have some clients on a small VPNn setup still running GW 6.5 client and able to access their email on the 8 platform without any issues.  We are in the process of upgrading their computers as well, but some of them are still on XP running GW 6.5 client.

Will employees who are still running GW 6.5 client be able to access their email if we upgrade to 2012?

Hello,

I have a problem with an Excel routing slip which isn't sending a receipt to the other users in the routing chain as it routes on to the next user.

I believe this is controlled by the tracking = true statement but that is set to true and it still isn't working.

Can anyone identify an issue with the code below that would cause that?

Thanks

Josh

Sub josh_route()

 

Dim Addresee As String

Dim Addresee2 As String

Dim MandatesAdd As String

Dim winusername As String

 

winusername = UCase(Environ("UserName")) ' get username of current user

 

Select Case winusername

 

Case UCase(Range("uno").Value) 'IS End USER

    

    'CHECK IF REMOVE ALL MANDATES

    If Range("AP4") = True Then

    Addresse = ""

    Addresee2 = ""

    Sheets("Tracking").Range("D2").FormulaR1C1 = Now

    GoTo routemandate

    End If

 

    'Set END USER route Date

        

    Range("userdate").Value = Now

    Addresse = Range("PAEMAIL").Value ' project accountant

    Addresee2 = Range("SPEMAIl").Value ' project sponsor

The email within my GroupWise gets automatically deleted after 45 days. Is there a way to store emails outside of the "Home" area, similar to adding a pst file to outlook where I can manage the emails myself?

Hello,

I need to open port 1677 on a Windows 2008 server. This port is used for GroupWise and I think the firewall is blocking this port. How do I open/add a port to the Windows firewall and for port 1677?

Thank you,
John

Hello,

I installed GroupWise 2012 on a Windows 2008 Server. I also installed GroupWise Web Access. While logged into the GroupWise 2012 server, I can start the GroupWise email client and connect to my user account. I can send messages.

I logged into my Windows 7 workstation, installed the Novell Client, and then I installed the Groupwise 2012 client. When I start the GroupWise 2012 email client, I entered the IP address of 192.168.1.99 and the port of 1677. I cannot log in with my user.

I can logon to my GroupWise account with the GroupWise web access.

What do I need to check to see why I cannot log into GroupWise using the GroupWise email client? Is there a port that I need to open or something?

Thanks,
John

PS: I don't know if this is related. When I create an account in Consoleone, I get the following error message, "Error 0x8801 a request was attempted with an invalid or nonattached connection handle."

I am using the same ConsoleOne that was installed with GroupWise 2012 so it should be compatible.

When attemtping to open MS Word documents (.doc) in 97-2003 format using MS office 2010 get the following error (see attached file).  

Attempted the following solutions myself:

Go to file > options >  trust Center > trust center settings > Protected View > Disabled Enable Protected View for files originated from the Internet and for outlook attachments.

Also, under trust center settings > file block settings > and disabling Word 97 and Word 2003 Binary Documents and templates.

Tried un-installing 2010 and using 2007 with no success.

Any help getting this to work in 2010 would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I am getting ready to install GroupWise 2012 on a Windows Server 2008 system. I read somewhere that I need to setup some port policies to allow people to access GroupWise on a Windows 2008 Server. Do you know what ports need to be opened and what policies need to be created?

Thanks,
John

Hello - I am familiar with creating Contacts in Exchange as 'SMTP Address' but have not designated any as another particular type - Such as a 'Lotus Notes Address' or a 'Novell Groupwise Address'.

i am creating a Glogal Distribution list within Exchange 2003 to include some recipients who use Groupwise.  When creating the new contacts in Exchange, should I designate as 'Novell Groupwise Address' type or 'SMTP Address' type.  Is there a difference?  In other words, would either work or is there better integration when designating as 'Groupwise' type?  Thanks for your expert advice?

Hello

I'm an end user. Is it possible to add recurring dates/appointments in Web Access? We used to have the desktop client which allowed me to add recurring events - something I do not know how to do in GroupWise Web Access 8.

I have an Add-In in Outlook 2010 that saves an email message to a msg file.  Included in that is a function called GetApplicationObject( ) that returns a Microsoft.Office.Interop.Outlook object.

In debug everything works as designed.  When I run it outside the debugger, just in Outlook itself, the following line of code fails (no error message - it just acts as though there's nothing else to do.

application = Marshal.GetActiveObject("Outlook.Application) as Outlook.Application;

Here's the entire function:
 Outlook.Application GetApplicationObject()
        {
            Outlook.Application application = null;

            MessageBox.Show("application set to null");

            if (Process.GetProcessesByName("OUTLOOK").Count() > 0)
            {
                // If so, use GetActiveObject to cast it to an Application object.
                MessageBox.Show("About to get the active Outlook object");
                application = Marshal.GetActiveObject("Outlook.Application") as Outlook.Application;
            }
            else
            {
                // If not, create a new instance of Outlook and log on to the default profile.
                MessageBox.Show("No instance found - creating new");
                application = new Outlook.Application();
                Outlook.NameSpace nameSpace = application.GetNamespace("MAPI");
                nameSpace.Logon("", "", Missing.Value, Missing.Value);
                nameSpace = null;

I realize this question has been asked before, and I have read all of the responses and tried everything that I have found both here and elsewhere to no avail. Hopefully someone else will come across this that can help who maybe didn't see one of the other ones.

The error is:

Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {270BA898-891F-4EE6-B61F-F9BC1F3D3031} failed due to the following error: 80040154.

Our goal:

We are trying to create a web service wrapper for the Goldmine API so that we can have a central place to run it from. We have tried this on Windows 2003 IIS6 and Windows 2008 IIS7 without any luck.

The file is:

Interop.GMXMLAPI.dll (Goldmine version is 9.0.1.49 December 2010)

Steps attempted:

Registering the DLL using regsvr32.
Creating a separate application pool with the default user as well as a specified user (ran aspnet_regiis).
Copying various Goldmine DLLs to the system32 folder as specified in one thread I read.
Gave the above application pool user access to system32 and the .net framework temp directory.
Using sysinternals process explorer to see if there were missing references needed by the Interop.GMXMLAPI.dll
Registering Interop.GMXMLAPI.dll in component services didn't work. There is a registration for GMXMLAPI in the DCOM config section. I noticed that the ID for that is different: {28D3FDB4-DB74-4FE0-A7DE-C18D7BE3465B}.

I did migrate GroupWise server to new hardware.
Old server: Netware 6.5 SP8, GroupWise 6.5 SP6UP2
