Synchronize Directories Immediately
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 need to enable e-mail addressing and delivery immediately, you can perform directory synchronization to populate each directory with users from the other system. If you do not need to enable e-mail addressing and delivery immediately, you can schedule directory synchronization for low network traffic times.
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 synchronize directories immediately:
Exchange to GroupWise directory synchronization
Note If you change the GroupWise address of an Exchange user, you must do a full reload to propagate the change to GroupWise. Exchange users (called external users) in the GroupWise directory are uniquely identified by their GroupWise address. A change made to an Exchange user's GroupWise address on Exchange cannot be propagated to GroupWise unless the user's old address is deleted first.
