10.2 Planning Administrator Rights

To perform the merge process, the Site #1 administrator must have exclusive access to the Site #2 databases. This access can be to either the Site #2 domain databases if the two GroupWise systems are connected, or to copies of the Site #2 domain databases if the systems are not connected. Exclusive access is created when the GroupWise MTAs are shut down and the administrator has admin-equivalent rights to the two systems.

See GroupWise Administrator Rights in Security Administration in the GroupWise 8 Administration Guide for information on setting up administrator rights.


If the administrator performing the merge has the necessary rights, under Item 2: Does Administrator Performing the Merge Have Admin-Equivalent Rights to Both Systems?, select Yes or No. If the administrator does not currently have the required rights, make sure that the required rights are obtained before starting the merge.
