32.6 Recovering Deleted GroupWise Accounts

If you have a reliable backup procedure in place, as described in Section 31.0, Backing Up GroupWise Databases, you can restore recently deleted GroupWise user and resource accounts.

  1. Make available a backup copy of a domain database (wpdomain.db) where the deleted GroupWise account still exists.

  2. In ConsoleOne, click Tools > GroupWise Utilities > Recover Deleted Account.

    Recover GroupWise Account dialog box
  3. Browse to and select the backup copy of the domain database.

  4. Select the user or resource that you need to recover the account for.

  5. Click Next.

    Additional Information dialog box
  6. If desired, click Save to Clipboard, paste the information into a file, then save or print it.

  7. Click Next.

    Summary dialog box
  8. Click Finish.

    At this point, you have restored the user’s or resource’s GroupWise account into the GroupWise system. However, this does not restore ownership of resources, nor does the account’s mailbox contain any item at this point.

  9. If the restored user owned resources, manually restore the ownership, as described in Section 16.2, Changing a Resource’s Owner

  10. To restore the contents of the account’s mailbox, follow the instructions in Section 32.5, Restoring Deleted Mailbox Items.
