Environment

Novell Identity Manager 3.5.1
Novell Identity Manager 3.6
Novell GroupWise 8

Situation

How is the GroupWise driver for Novell Identity Manager (IDM) configured to be used with GroupWise 8?

Resolution

In order to use the currently available GroupWise driver configuration with GroupWise 8, a change to the "GroupWise Domain Database Version" GCV in the driver parameters will need to be incorporated. The next release of IDM will contain this updated parameter.

Old:

<definition display-name="GroupWise Domain Database Version" name="domainVersion" type="enum">
<description>Specify the version of GroupWise Domain Database to which this driver will connect.</description>
<enum-choice display-name="GroupWise 7">700</enum-choice>
<enum-choice display-name="GroupWise 6.5">650</enum-choice>
<enum-choice display-name="GroupWise 6.0">600</enum-choice>
<enum-choice display-name="GroupWise 5.5">550</enum-choice>
<value>700</value>
</definition>

New:

<definition display-name="GroupWise Domain Database Version" name="domainVersion" type="enum">
<description>Specify the version of GroupWise Domain Database to which this driver will connect.</description>
<enum-choice display-name="GroupWise 8">800</enum-choice>
<enum-choice display-name="GroupWise 7">700</enum-choice>
<enum-choice display-name="GroupWise 6.5">650</enum-choice>
<enum-choice display-name="GroupWise 6.0">600</enum-choice>
<enum-choice display-name="GroupWise 5.5">550</enum-choice>
<value>700</value>
</definition>

The IDM 3.6 GroupWise driver shim is supported with GroupWise 8 although none of the newer GroupWise features are supported. New functionality will be available in the next release of IDM.
