Location of groups

On the next page, you can specify the container you want to hold the groups generated by the Group Family.

Figure 110: Location of groups

You can choose one of these options:

  • Group Family home OU  The Group Family creates groups in the container that holds the configuration storage group for that Group Family (see Start the New Group Family wizard earlier in this chapter).
  • This organizational unit  The Group Family creates groups in the container specified. This must be an organizational unit or container from the domain of the Group Family configuration storage group. Click Select to choose the desired organizational unit or container.

Exchange-related settings

On the next page, you can specify whether you want the groups generated by the Group Family to be mail-enabled, and set up Exchange-related properties to assign to those groups upon their creation.

Figure 111: Exchange-related settings

If you want the Group Family groups to be mail-enabled, select the Mail-enable groups created by Group Family check box. Then, you can set up the following Exchange-related properties for the Group Family groups:

  • Expansion server  The Exchange server used to expand a Group Family group into a list of group members.
  • Hide group from Exchange address lists  Prevents the Group Family groups from appearing in address lists. If you select this check box, each of the groups will be hidden from all address lists.
  • Send out-of-office messages to originator  Select this check box if you want out-of-office messages to be sent to the message originator, when a message is sent to a Group Family group while one or more of the group members have an out-of-office message in effect.
  • Send delivery reports to group owner  Use this option if you want delivery reports to be sent to the group owner, when a message sent to a Group Family group is not delivered. This lets the group owner know that the message was not delivered.
  • Send delivery reports to message originator  Use this option if you want delivery reports to be sent to a message originator, when a message sent to a Group Family group is not delivered. This lets the message originator know that the message was not delivered.
  • Do not send delivery reports  Use this option if you do not want delivery reports to be sent, even if a message sent to a Group Family group is not delivered.

Group Family scheduling

On the next page, you can schedule the Group Family to run. During each run, the Group Family performs as described in the How it works section, earlier in this chapter.

When setting up the schedule options, take into account that a Group Family run is a lengthy and resource intensive operation. Therefore, a Group Family run should be scheduled for a time that it will have the minimum impact on users.

Figure 112: Group family scheduling

Select the first check box to run the Group Family right after you complete the wizard and whenever the Group Family is modified by managing the configuration storage group (see Administering Group Family later in this chapter).

Select the second check box to set up schedule options. As long as this check box is selected, the Group Family runs at specified time.

From the Run on this server list, you can select the Administration Service to run the Group Family. It is advisable to choose the least loaded Service.

Steps for creating a Group Family

Creation of a Group Family is a two-step process that includes:

  1. Creating the Group Family configuration
  2. Running the Group Family to initially create or capture groups

The Active Roles console provides the New Group Family wizard for creating the Group Family configuration. The wizard creates a group, referred to as configuration storage group, and populates that group with the configuration data you specify. The wizard also allows you to run the Group Family immediately or schedule the Group Family to run on a regular basis.

To create the Group Family configuration and run the Group Family

  1. In the console tree, right-click the organizational unit in which you want to create the Group Family configuration storage group, and select New | Group Family to start the New Group Family wizard.
  2. Follow the instructions on the wizard pages.
