Schedule Directory Synchronization
When you schedule a synchronization, user data is exported from Exchange to GroupWise, and then user data is imported from GroupWise to Exchange immediately afterwards. In Novell GroupWise, each individual directory update is transmitted in a separate e-mail message, so directory synchronization can take a long time. If you do not need to enable e-mail addressing and delivery immediately, you can schedule directory synchronization for low network traffic times. If you need to enable e-mail addressing and delivery immediately, you can perform directory synchronization immediately to populate each directory with users from the other system.
Important GroupWise users must be added to Active Directory on the Exchange server, or Exchange will not be able to respond to GroupWise users who query Exchange calendars.
To schedule directory synchronization:
Note The default setting is Never run. If you want to synchronize directory information, you must either set a synchronization schedule or manually synchronize the information by clicking Immediate full reload or Immediate update.
Tip The default schedule view is one hour. To view the grid in 15-minute increments, in Detail view, select 15 Minute.
After you close Schedule, the setting Use custom schedule appears automatically in the schedule list.
