Export Users, Contacts, and Groups

Directory synchronization consists of two separate processes: exporting user data from Exchange to GroupWise and importing user data from GroupWise to Exchange. You must specify a container if you want to export Active Directory users, contacts, or groups. You can specify a container in a different domain if the domains have an established trust relationship.

In addition, you must specify whether to export groups and contacts. They are not exported by default.

To export users, contacts, and groups:

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. In the console tree, double-click Connectors.
  3. Right-click Connector for Novell GroupWise (server_name), and then click Properties.
  4. On the Export Containers tab, click Add, click an Active Directory container (also called an organizational unit), and then click Apply.
  5. To send the names of Exchange contacts to GroupWise, select the Export contacts check box.

    Note   When a GroupWise directory entry is imported into Active Directory, the entry is marked so that the connector will not export it back to GroupWise. This applies regardless of whether the Export contacts check box is selected.

  6. To send directory information for groups to GroupWise, select the Export groups check box.

Tip   To remove an export container from the list used by the connector, select the container from the list of export containers, and then click Remove. Directory information in transit will be delivered and the connector will perform a full reload during the next directory synchronization. This does not remove the container from Active Directory.
