    Creates and Synchronizes Global GroupWise Distribution Lists based on the following naming standard:

    For all except the root it is the container name minus the root part suffixed with "_GWDL". All periods are replaced with a '_'.
    for the root it is the name of the root suffixed with "_GWDL"


    If the Run Option is Auto Create DLs

    • Select the Primary Domain Database
    • Select the NDS Tree
    • Select the starting Container
    • Specify the run mode and option
    • Click the Start Button to start the process. Start Button toggles to the Stop button.
    • Click the Stop button to Stop the process

    Once started, GWDL

    • Reads NDS and obtains a list of containers for the specified Tree and Starting Context.
    • Creates a GWDL for each container and sub-container that has one of the following:
      • users with GroupWise accounts
      • the container has sub-containers
    • If the Run Option is "Synchronize DLs":
      • Finds the GroupWise Distribution Lists, starting at the specified container. If the GroupWise Distribution Lists belong to a container that has sub-containers then it will add the sub-containers Distribution list if one was created.
      • Identifies any new users added to the container with a GroupWise account and add him/her to the GroupWise Distribution List. If users were either moved from or deleted from a container and was a member of the containers GroupWise distribution, he/she will be removed from the Distribution List.
