Versions: GroupWise 6

The Novell GroupWise 6 Import/Export utility is an add-on to ConsoleOne that enables you to transfer GroupWise information into and out of NDS.

The GroupWise Export utility reads NDS and GroupWise object information from NDS and creates an ASCII delimited text file containing the object attributes.

The GroupWise Import utility reads an ASCII-delimited text file created by the GroupWise Export utility or by a third-party export, and creates NDS and GroupWise objects with attributes from the file. The Import utility supports most NDS classes (including extensions) and GroupWise classes.

Installation Instructions:

The Novell GroupWise 6 Import/Export utility is available for download as a single self-extracting file (GWPORT32.EXE). The download file requires approximately 10.1 MB of free disk space on the machine where you are running ConsoleOne. The installed Import/Export utility requires another 27.5 MB of free disk space.

To install the Import/Export utility:

After downloading the GWPORT32.EXE file, copy it to the CONSOLEONE\xx directory (where xx represents your ConsoleOne version number) on your ConsoleOne workstation.

Extract the file to the default directory. This will copy the utility's files to the appropriate locations in the ConsoleOne directory.

Launch ConsoleOne > select an NDS tree > click the Tools menu > click GroupWise Utilities. Import and Export options should now appear on the menu. If the options are dimmed, make sure you have selected an NDS tree. For detailed information about using the Import/Export utility, see "GroupWise Utilities" in the GroupWise 6 Administration guide.


The Import/Export utility requires the following:

GroupWise 6 Support Pack 1 (or higher)
ConsoleOne 1.3.2 (or higher)
10.1 MB of free disk space on the ConsoleOne workstation for the download file (GWPORT32.EXE)
27.5 MB of free disk space on the ConsoleOne workstation for the installed Import/Export utility

The Import/Export utility is available in the following languages:

Chinese Simplified

All the languages listed above are included in the GWPORT32.EXE download file and are installed by default. The Import/Export utility will automatically display in the same language as ConsoleOne, unless the ConsoleOne language is a language other than one listed above. In this case, the Import/Export utility will default to English.
