Welcome to the Cool Solutions Community
A couple of weeks ago one of our consultants in EMEA set up the Operations Center Dashboard for a customer in a clustered configuration. By this I mean, the customer wanted to ensure as much "up-time" as possible for their end users who access the Dashboard. In order to do this, multiple Dashboard instances were set up with a Load Balancer in front of it to direct users.

We were checking out the keywords people regularly search for on Novell.com (using our site search as well as Google), and spotted a recurring desire to know how to set a vacation rule. This is no great surprise. We all love to take vacations, and particularly love to let our co-workers know that we are taking them. This is one of life's simple pleasures. And to make it even more pleasurable, GroupWise 2012 has vastly streamlined the way you set it all up.
The recording of the Administration Console Webinar is now published!
Back at work, already? Leverage the knowledge in discussions about GroupWise 2012 and previous versions. The fully searchable, September 2012 edition of the free GroupWise Resource Archive is now available for the GroupWise Community.
A major stumbling block for getting started with Identity Manager (IDM) is how XPATH works, which should be understandable, but in an Identity Manager context it seems to confuse the heck out of people. Read Geoffrey Carman's article about it here.
Just before the US September holiday weekend, the first Refresh for Designer 4.02 was released. (Aug 31, 2012). Here's some information from Geoffrey Carman on where to download it.

What has the GroupWise team been up to for the last several months? Combing through customer feedback collected through Cool Solutions, events, and face-to-face meetings with organizations around the world. The result? A more rich understanding of what you need from the product...and a more detailed plan for delivering it. Read the second in this series of posts to find out what's most important to the GroupWise customer base and how this data is driving our product plans.
In OES11SP1 we have made major changes in DSfW configuration during new server installation. The changes have impacted YaST configuration screens for new forest, new domain in existing forest, and new domain controller in existing domain.
Here is an overview of the changes that we made, the benefits they offer, and how they have changed the overall look.
Several Management tools have an ability for the end user to suppress an alarm or a device but not every management tool provides this feature.
I had the fantastic opportunity to participate in a live Cloud discussion: Get off my Cloud: Floating the Risks of Big Data Storage on Huff Post Live during their inaugural week of going live with streaming news and discussions leveraging Google+ Hangouts to bring in live guests.
From time to time when creating custom right-clicks for the Operations Center console, you might require a dialog that comes up with a navigatable element tree to allow the end user to select one or more elements. Suppose you needed to create a more advanced right-click that allowed the user to select an element, and then the script does some additional processing, for instance, selecting an element, then gather alarm details and opening a Help Desk ticket. This script is the fragment you need to bring up a element navigation dialog without having to write it from scratch.
Using custom forms is a great way to collect information, submit requests, and start a workflow process. By attending this webinar, you will be able to create your own unique form and implement it in Vibe.

The iPrint Driver Migration script takes drivers from any NetWare driver repository and converts and uploads them to a Linux driver store automatically.
The Create Printers From CSV script is powerful tool to allow you to specify your printers easily in an excel spreadsheet and then create them without the use of iManager.
We wanted to be able to allow our users to enroll themselves in our DataSync server. And we wanted to let them know when they were set up, so that they could configure their devices. Adding the users to the system through LDAP is easy. The problem is, some users get set up quick, while others can take a bit. And then sometimes there's a random error and they're not set up at all. So, how can you tell the user when their account is set up, without someone having to watch things and tell them? The answer is easier than you think...
Friendly reminder: some of the older versions of your ZENworks products won't be supported after Sept. 30.
