Default BES 4.0 for Novell GroupWise

Please Login to Remove!

This appears to be out in public now. You should be able to purchase this from your favorite carrier. There is also a hotfix out to bundle 26 (current production release) available on blackberry.com's site.

How are folks getting along with this? I want to roll it out at our company, but I don't need a farked up Groupwise system in the process.

Our current BB users are forwarding to BWC now, and they tend to fill up their 10mb fairly often. This *has* got to be better, yes?

Though I have yet to actually use this version of BES - BES IS a MUCH MUCH better option then forwarding. One note re: he 10 meg mail box - most carriers will increase the size up to 100 megs if you call and complain.

Does anyone out there have the beta and/or release instruction books for Gwise BES?

Thanks

Its still not confirmed what operating systems RIM support Groupwise on. First we were told Netware, then Windows, then both -_- I'm assuming it will be both Netware 6.5 and Windows 2000 sp4/Windows Server 2003, both for Groupwise 6.5.

It does support netware and windows-based post offices. GW6.5 is required I think.

6.5.4 groupwise client and novell client is required on the BES server, but your production network can be 6.5.2 or higher I think.

We've been using it for about 4-5 months now, and I have been very pleased with its operation. We've had a couple of hangups in the beginning, being beta and all that, but it has been very stable over the last 2 months or so.

We've also tested with GroupWise running on Linux, and haven't seen any problems with that either.

The only real bug I still know of that is noticable is that global address book lookups are broken. Returns no matches everytime. But I have the SRP info on this and supposedly this will be fixed in the SP1 release shortly.

Great. We're running Groupwise 6.5.2 agents on Windows. I had read a reference that they were only going to do netware, but I am glad to read that windows/linux are working.

I'm a n00b in the blackberry world (but I just got a 7100g!) and i'll report back if we are going ahead with this.
