Omni.Connection.Gw.GwSoap.xc783af63b0e311fd:  User ambiguous
Cause of the error
There are two circumstances that can cause a "user ambiguous" error:
When GroupWise tries to create the appointment item and add the corresponding GroupWise contact, it cannot determine a suitable contact.
In CRM, locate the appointment or phone call that was scheduled and confirm the invitees. Then confirm that the potential challenges identified above are removed from CRM contacts. Riva will sync those changes to GroupWise and the "user ambiguous" error will clear.
