The GroupWise® 7 Gateway for Lotus Notes* connects a GroupWise system and a Notes system by creating a link between a GroupWise domain and a Notes domain.
The GroupWise 7 version of the Notes Gateway includes the following enhancements:
Compatibility with a GroupWise 7 system and the accompanying ConsoleOne® snap-ins
Availability of TCP/IP links between the Notes Gateway and the MTA
Support for Windows* 2003 Server and Lotus Notes 7.0
New independent directory synchronization thread so that heavy directory synchronization loads do not impede message delivery
Lotus Notes 6.0, 6.5, or 7.0
Windows Server 2000 or Windows Server 2003
GroupWise 6.5 or GroupWise 7
Run the self-extracting executable setupnotes701.exe, click to confirm that you want to install the gateway, then click to continue.
Clickto accept the license agreement.
The default installation option, GroupWise Gateway for Lotus Notes, includes installation of the Gateway Administrator snap-in to ConsoleOne.
Follow the on-screen instructions.
For detailed installation instructions, see the GroupWise Gateway for Lotus Notes Installation and Administration Guide on the GroupWise Gateways Documentation page.
Before you start the gateway, you must configure your Notes system and your GroupWise system to support the gateway link, as described in the Installation and Administration Guide.
After you start the gateway, stop and then start the MTAs in the GroupWise system to establish the links to the non-GroupWise domain that represents the Notes system in the GroupWise system.
If a GroupWise user forwards a message to a Notes user and does not type any new text to accompany the forwarded message, the forwarded message appears in the message body when the Notes user opens it and there is no indication of who the originator of the forwarded message is.
Directory synchronization depends on the date and time settings on the Notes server and the Notes Gateway machine. Only if the machines themselves are synchronized can the Notes Gateway determine whether a specific directory synchronization has been done. If the Notes server and the Notes Gateway machine are not synchronized, the Notes Gateway might not perform inbound synchronization from the Notes Address Book to the GroupWise Address Book even when it is necessary.
During directory exchange and synchronization, Notes groups are not propagated to the GroupWise system.
The Notes Gateway SNMP functionality does not support more than one gateway on a single Windows machine.
The Notes Gateway respects the setting selected in thefield on the Account page of a User object in ConsoleOne.
After it reloads its configuration file, the Notes Gateway restarts its admin thread so that directory sync/exchange can continue and the gateway Web console continues to be available.
Long log messages display properly on the Notes Gateway server console.
Fixed some gateway crashes.
