A Forum reader recently asked:

"Is there any way I can get GroupWise Messenger to work with an external entity? When this system was set up, it was all with done with external entities. If this is not possible, is there a way to convert all these entities to users, even though some of them are already done?"

And here's the response from Don Heinze ...


No, Messenger needs the users to be full NDS users, not external entities.

1. In ConsoleOne, highlight multiple EEs.

2. Select Tools > GW Utilities > GW / eDirectory Association > Convert External Entity to User ... to convert the EEs to full NDS user accounts.
