When you first set up a new GroupWise system, a basic library is automatically created for the first post office. A basic library is adequate when:
Document management is not a primary activity of your GroupWise users.
The library will store documents created and used by members of the post office that owns the library, or, if you do not need one basic library per post office, by all users within a domain.
All documents will be stored at the post office or in a single document storage area external to the post office that owns the library.
If your anticipated document management needs are more demanding than those listed above, you can set up one or more full-service libraries, where you can implement the full range of document management capabilities offered by GroupWise Document Management Services (DMS).
NOTE:The Linux version of ConsoleOne allows you to create libraries, but it does not allow you to set document properties as described in Section 23.2, Organizing Documents. As you plan for libraries on Linux, keep in mind that the Linux/Mac client has only basic document management capabilities when compared with the Windows client, as described in GroupWise 8 Mac/Linux Client User Guide.
To use one or more libraries as part of your GroupWise system, perform the following tasks as needed:
IMPORTANT:If you are creating a new library in a clustered GroupWise system, see the GroupWise 8 Interoperability Guide before you create the library.
