Registering a GroupWise Trusted Application


Only GroupWise 8 Support Pack 1 or later offers a convenient graphical user interface tool for you to register trusted applications. For previous versions, we provide a command line tool. In all cases, the trusted application should have its name set to "MigrationWiz." Click here to download the command line tool.

Using the command line tool:

  1. Go to the target GroupWise server.
  2. Log in as a GroupWise administrator.
  3. Verify the user has full access to the GroupWise domain folder.
  4. Extract zipped files to a local temporary folder.
  5. Run the EXE with the GroupWise database folder as an argument (ie., GenerateTrustedAppMigrationWizKey.exe C:\Novell\Databases).


  • C:\>GenerateTrustedAppMigrationWizKey.exe C:\Novell\Databases
  • MigrationWiz Trusted App Key Generator
  • Configuring: C:\Novell\Databases
  • Key Generated
  • Key: 865A15420BA50008B…007BCF0085003000​

If this doesn’t work on your environment:

  1. Go to a Windows machine.
  2. Log in as a GroupWise administrator.
  3. Mount a drive letter to the remote target GroupWise server (for example, net use X: \\GW-Server\c$ /u:Administrator).
  4. Follow the previously outlined steps using X:\Novell\Databases instead.

Note:  The command line tool requires the NETWIN32.DLL, which is packed by Novel Netware client. If you get the following error: “The program can’t start because NETWIN32.DLL is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem” confirm that:
  • The GroupWise client is installed on the computer.
  • The Novell Netware client is installed on the computer.
