Free/Busy search in Outlook: Using the GroupWise CalPub server, the Outlook client can do a Free/Busy search against GroupWise. The Free/Busy URL that needs to be entered as below with the server name being replaced with your CalPub server:
GroupWise LDAP Provisioning: You can provision users in Mobility using GroupWise 2014 R2 LDAP. If you provision using GroupWise LDAP, you must use GroupWise authentication in Mobility as you cannot authenticate to the GroupWise LDAP. For more information, see Configuring GroupWise LDAP Provisioning in the GroupWise Mobility Service 2014 R2 Administration Guide.
In GroupWise, in Groups > Select a Group > Access Control, if a user is defined in People who can send to this group or People who can modify this group, it might break Mobility’s ability to get a list of the group members. If the group is being used by Mobility for user provisioning, you may be unable to add or delete users in Mobility.
If a user’s Mail to keep online setting is set to the to All and the admin changes the Maximum Sync Limit for either Email or Calendar, the user will not get the change. You need to re-initialized the user to get the new admin defined setting. Outlook does not provide a way for the end user to change the number of days to sync.
If you send an email to an email address that is incorrect, Outlook delivers the email to GroupWise and all valid email addresses receive the email. Outlook does not remove the message from the Outbox because it detects the bad email address. Outlook does not tell you about the bad email address.
This issue is only seen in a very specific case. You must have created an Outlook profile on your Windows machine using the GroupWise Profile Setup Utility. Using that profile, you then login to Outlook and connect to Mobility. After closing out Outlook, you run the GroupWise Profile Setup Utility with identical user information as the first profile that was created. When you open Outlook again, it uses the second profile that was created and creates a new device in Mobility for the user. The first profile is not used again and is removed from the Mobility system during nightly maintenance after 30 days.
GroupWise LDAP provisioning is not currently available during the installation of Mobility. You can currently only configure GroupWise LDAP provisioning after the install. Please contact support to receive a patch if you want to configure GroupWise LDAP provisioning during the install.
If you have an attachment to an email that has two or more spaces next to each other in the attachment name, Mobility is unable to handle the email and the processer utilization on the server is maxed. If this occurs, you can block the user with the problem in GMS. To receive a patch for this issue, contact Micro Focus support.
Because of the version number change with Mobility 2014 R2, version so dsapp previous to v226 use identify GMS 2014 R2 as datasync 1.x. To prevent this problem, make sure you update dsapp to v226 or newer.
In DS 1.x, contacts on the device side were stored in the GroupWise frequent contacts address book. In GMS 2.x and later, contacts on the device are now stores in the GroupWise personal address book. Because of this, when you upgrade from DS 1.x to GMS 2.x or higher, all device created contacts are removed from the device. To prevent this from happening, before upgrading to GMS 2.x or higher, copy all device created GroupWise frequent contacts entries to your personal address book and then delete the frequent contacts entries. Once the upgrade has been completed, the contacts sync properly.
IMPORTANT:Make sure to run the SSL Check option in MCheck after installing GMS 2014 R2.
IMPORTANT:Make sure to run the GMSsslCheck utility before upgrading to GMS 2014 R2.
