How do I migrate from GroupWise using administrative credentials?
To migrate from GroupWise using administrative credentials, you must use a GroupWise feature called Trusted Application. A Trusted Application is identified by an application name and a key. By registering a Trusted Application whose name is "MigrationWiz", you will obtain a key which can be used by MigrationWiz to authenticate to multiple user mailboxes. Specify this key on your MigrationWiz connector.
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".

To register a Trusted Application called "MigrationWiz" using a graphical interface (GroupWise 8 SP1 or later):
- Follow Novell's instructions.
- Ensure that the application name is set to "MigrationWiz."
- Copy the key value for the application key textbox when configuring the Mailbox Connector for GroupWise.
Finally, for users migrating from GroupWise using IMAP, you can specify a Trusted Application key by specifying TrustedApplicationKey=<your key> in the Support Only options on your connector or mailbox Advanced Options as shown below:
Note: When adding the users in an IMAP project using the TrustedApplicationKey, the UI will still ask you to enter a password for each user. You can enter anything you like in the password field, and it will be ignored. Make sure you do not checkmark the option I don't know the password for this item, because this will send an email to the end user to enter their password.
