Users are considered to be part of your Messenger system if their User objects reside in a Novell® eDirectory™ context listed in a scope profile. A default scope profile was established during installation, as described in Messenger 2.0 Installation Guide.
Figure 3-1 User Configuration Page In the Messenger Installation Program
NOTE:GroupWise External Entity objects in the listed contexts are not considered part of your Messenger system.
You can add more users after installation.
IMPORTANT:If users are addressed through various hostnames, you must create a different scope profile for each hostname, as described in Section 3.3, Providing User Searches Based on E-Mail Addresses“.
Any time you add a new User object in eDirectory in a context listed in a Messenger scope profile, that user is automatically part of your Messenger system.
To see what scope profiles have been defined for your Messenger system and to view the contents of a scope profile:
In ConsoleOne®, browse to and expand the Messenger Service object.
Select the Scope Container object.
Existing scope profiles are displayed in the right pane.
Right-click a scope profile, then click.
The context list includes the contexts contained in the scope profile.
If you create new eDirectory users in any of the contexts listed in any of the scope profiles, no additional configuration is necessary for them to be part of your Messenger system.
There is no limit to the number of eDirectory contexts you can list in a scope profile. However, all contexts in a scope profile must be in the same eDirectory tree where your Messenger system is located.
To add users in the same eDirectory tree where your Messenger system is located:
In ConsoleOne, browse to and expand the Messenger Service object.
Select the ScopeContainer object.
Right-click theobject, then click .
Initially, the context list includes those contexts selected during installation.
Browse to and select an eDirectory context, then click.
If necessary, selectin the Context List Entry dialog box.
Clickto updated the context list with the new context.
Clickto save the updated default scope profile.
IMPORTANT:Be sure to avoid duplicating contexts in the context list, especially if you selected theoption. If the same context appears multiple times in the context list, Messenger users receive duplicate results when searching for contacts.
