19.5 Renaming a Group

Situations might arise where you need to give an eDirectory group a new name. For example, you might need to move the group to another post office that already has an object (user, resource, distribution list, group, or organizational unit) with the same name.

When you rename an eDirectory group, you rename the Group object. This means that not only are you changing the name in GroupWise, but also in eDirectory.

  1. In ConsoleOne, right-click the Group object, then click Rename to display the Rename dialog box.

  2. In the New Name field, specify the new name for the group.

  3. Make sure the Save Old Name box is not selected. Saving the old name causes duplicate groups to appear in the Address Book.

  4. Click OK to rename the group.
