Problem: Several of our templates had the GroupWise visibility set to domain instead of system. We did not catch this error for several months. A professor brought it to our attention that there were several students that did not appear in his address book. I needed to do a mass change on user visibility. The only information I could find via the forums was a non-shareware program. I had been playing with ldap files for adding attributes to enable MAC users to automount their home directory and figured there had to be away to change GroupWise visability.
Solution: I used the ConsoleOne wizard to export all users with an attribute filter of cn and nGWvisibility. Then I used a stardard text editor to modify the nGWvisibility attribute.
I then reimported the ldif file.
Afterwards, the users need to be sychronized or a rebuild run on the postoffice.
