4.4.3 Configuring GroupWise Address Book Synchronization

After setting the user options:

  1. In the System Address Book Sync Settings box on the User Settings tab, select how you want to synchronize the GroupWise Address Book to the GroupWise Mobile Server Web PIM, where users select the GroupWise PIM data that will be synchronized to their mobile devices.

    NOTE:In GroupWise Mobile Server, the GroupWise Address Book is referred to as the “system address book” or the “global address list”.

  2. If you do not to synchronize the full GroupWise Address Book to the Web PIM, select Don’t Sync System Address Book.

    In the Web PIM, users can still select the personal address book to which their Contacts folder is mapped. Typically, this is the Frequent Contacts address book. Users can map a different address book to the Contacts folder if they would prefer a different personal address book rather than the Frequent Contacts address book. For more information, see Section 6.3, Using the Web PIM to Configure Device Synchronization Settings.

  3. If you have selected or created GroupWise distribution lists that contain subsets of the GroupWise Address Book, as described in Section 2.4, Using Distribution Lists for Address Book Synchronization, complete the following steps:

    4. Select distribution lists in the Available List, then click Add to move them to the Sync’d List.

      The selected GroupWise distribution lists will be synchronized to the Web PIM

  4. If you want to synchronize the full GroupWise Address Book to the Web PIM, select Sync Entire System Address Book.

  5. If you want users to be able to override your synchronization setting when they use the Web PIM, select Allow User Override of System Address Book Sync Settings.

  6. Click OK to save the address book synchronization settings for the default profile.

  7. If you want all users to use the default profile, skip to Section 4.5, Completing the GroupWise Mobile Server Installation


    If you want to create multiple customized profiles, so that different users can have different settings, continue with Creating Multiple Profiles
