Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-04

This topic discusses how to grant full proxy access to a user mailbox using the Novell GroupWise client.

To successfully complete the procedure in this topic, ensure that the server on which you run the Exchange Migration Wizard meets the following requirements:

  • The server is running Exchange Server 2003.

  • If you have configured Connector for Novell GroupWise and directory synchronization, stop the Connector for Novell GroupWise service. This is necessary to prevent directory synchronization from propagating address list changes before you verify that the migration is successful.

  • You have installed and configured the Novell GroupWise client software. It is recommended that you install Novell GroupWise 5.2.5 on the migration server.

  • You have network connectivity to the Novell NetWare server running Novell GroupWise. It is recommended that you install Novell NetWare 4.8 on the migration server.

  • You have administrative permissions in Exchange 2003, Novell NetWare, and Novell GroupWise.

  1. Start Novell GroupWise: Click Start, point to All Programs, point to GroupWise 5, and then click Novell GroupWise.

  2. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then double-click Security.

  3. On the Proxy Access tab, add the account that is being used to migrate the mailbox into the Access list. For example, in Name, type admin and then click Add User.

  4. Highlight the account that you added, and select all of the Access Rights listed below. Click OK.
