Actually, you can use BES without the Novell Client, but you would have to run the trusted key application on another machine that does have the Novell client, as it requires physical file-level access to the GroupWise Domain database (WPDOMAIN.DB).
I successfully generated the key on a laptop, and then simply copied the GWTrustedApp.ini file back to the BES machine and continued with the installation. I found this to be less painful than installing the Novell Client on the BES.
In fact, if you're running the GroupWise agents on Windows, you could probably do it directly from the BES server using Windows Networking, since the only thing it needs is access to the GroupWise domain database file.
You most definitely do need the GroupWise 6.5.4 client, however, as this contains the necessary libraries to communicate with the post office.
