Calendar Support in an Exchange and Non-Exchange Environment
Topic Last Modified: 2005-05-06
The Microsoft Exchange Connector for Lotus Notes and the Microsoft Exchange Connector for Novell GroupWise perform several functions to support calendaring capabilities between the foreign system and Exchange Server 2003:
Replicate directory information so that both Exchange users and foreign system users have access to calendaring data.
Convert meeting request items from Exchange format to the foreign format and from the foreign format to the Exchange format.
Detect Exchange Server 2003 free/busy requests and look up the appropriate free/busy data in the foreign system. This free/busy lookup is bidirectional.
The following figure shows how the connectors appear in Exchange System Manager and some of the configuration options that are available.
