The following PDF Guides are available for Riva Management for GroupWise:

Riva Management for GroupWise is supported up to GroupWise 2012

Important Note:  

Riva for GroupWise Management (including Riva Managed Policies and Reports, Riva Managed Applications, and Riva Identity Integration) is not compatible with GroupWise 2014.

Riva for GroupWise Management uses the legace GroupWise Admin API (included with the GroupWise client before GroupWise 2014) which has a critical dependency with eDirectory.  GroupWise 2014+ no longer has a dependency with eDirectory so the GroupWise Admin API has been removed and has been replaced with a REST-based API which will not work with Riva for GroupWise Management.

Riva has no plans to extend Riva for GroupWise Management past GroupWise 2012. This means that once a customer upgrades to GroupWise 2014 the Riva for GroupWise Management policies will no longer work.

How to Add a Secondary GroupWise Domain to the Riva Server

Background: In environments where GroupWise is installed exclusively on non-NetWare servers (non-NSS Linux volumes or Windows servers), an empty GroupWise Secondary Domain must be installed on the Riva On-Premise server. This is required to allow Riva connections for GroupWise to create the Trusted Application Key and communicate with the GroupWise domains. The following procedure includes links to the appropriate Novell installation and configuration documentation.

Supported Operating Systems: Windows Server 2008 R2 (x86, X64), 2008, 2003 R2, 2003

Recommended Procedure

  1. On the Windows Server, install the latest versions of the Windows Novell client and ConsoleOne application.

  2. Authenticate to the eDirectory tree hosting the GroupWise system as an admin level user.

  3. In the file system on a local drive on the Windows server, create a folder to hold the GroupWise Domain files, for example C:\GrpWise\<Domain-Name> or D:\GrpWise\<Domain-Name>.

  4. Start ConsoleOne, and create the secondary GroupWise domain. Copy (save) the domain files to the local path created at step 3.

  5. In ConsoleOne, configure the MTA Agent for the new GroupWise domain.

  6. Ensure that the Windows 2003/2008 Server meets the system requirements for installing the MTA agent.

  7. Run the Agent Installer program to install the MTA Agent software on the Windows Server.

  8. For GroupWise 2012 systems, manually create a trusted application key from ConsoleOne.
