Create an External Foreign Domain in GroupWise 5.x

The External Foreign Domain is the location in GroupWise into which Exchange users are propagated. All changes made in Exchange will be propagated to the designated GroupWise Foreign Domain. Changes made directly to users imported from Exchange by the GroupWise system administrator are overwritten by the GroupWise connector.

After you create the domain, you need to select the API gateway as the link between Exchange and GroupWise.

To create an external foreign domain for the Exchange organization and configure the link table:

  1. In NetWare Administrator, from the Tools menu, click GroupWise View, and then click Mail System.
  2. On the Object menu, click Create, and then click External Domain.
  3. Type an external domain name that matches the default recipient policy name in Exchange and repeat for other policies if necessary. The name is the first part of the GWISE proxy address on each Exchange organization. You can edit the name in the E-Mail Addressing tab of Recipient Policies. The default name is Exchange.
  4. In Domain Type, click External Foreign.
  5. In Database Version, select 4.x (to match the API gateway).
  6. Be sure that Time Zone is set to the same time zone used by the Exchange server that runs the GroupWise connector.
  7. Click Create.
  8. In NetWare Administrator, select the GroupWise domain that is performing directory synchronization with Exchange. This is the domain containing the API gateway.
  9. On the Tools menu, click GroupWise Utilities, and then click Link Configuration.
  10. In Link Configuration Tool, click the newly created external domain. On the Edit menu, click Link.
  11. On the Edit menu, click Link.
  12. In Link Type, select Gateway.
  13. In Gateway Link, select the API gateway that connects to Exchange, and then click OK.
