David.   Just to clarify...   All the admin stuff you are referring to will not be via SOAP protocol,  but thru a REST interface to the new admin service.  But yes,  the things you want to do below will be possible.   The new admin console uses said REST calls to communicate to the admin service.  So you can do almost everything via the REST API that you can do with the console.
PS.   Gert,  Hope all is well and wishing you the best in the future...

You will be missed Gert.  Your posts were always entertaining, and often quite helpful.

As far as Windermere utilities go, I am very much looking forward to being able to updates to GroupWise via SOAP calls.  As I understand it, everything that we can do in ConsoleOne has to be implemented in the new admin console, and for the admin console to talk to the agents, the agents have to support all these functions via SOAP.  This opens up a world of possibilities.  Distribution list maintenance via Perl, for example.  An integration with Novell Identity Manager that is tighter.  Export (and probably import) of GWIA access control lists.  If it is an object in GroupWise, I expect that we will at the minimum be able to list it for documentation purposes.

Maybe we won't have direct access to the SOAP calls; maybe we will have to use CURL to push and pull on the admin console itself - but at least that should be do-able, where pushing and pulling on ConsoleOne is ... not pretty.

Best of luck to you Gert, as you proceed from here.

About the current times

GroupWise 8 and earlier
My test systems always run on NetWare 5.1, in a VMWare workstation.
My fav version is 6.5,  cause of the client view and the first step to

GroupWise 2012
Redesigned client, good view, new look, WebAccess at its best.

GroupWise Windermere
Thoughts ...
What do you people see as the future of GroupWise Windermere as in
adittional utilities ?
Just saw a note on export to .csv from the admin console.
What I missed so far is list util to list all items searchable, first from
within NDS eDir only, thus listing only NDS records with GW attributes, second
from a GW database, where it is possible to connect to any dom, otim r c,
and from that dom list the GW objects.

What do you see for Windermere concerning utils only ? What disappears from
the command line into the admin console ? Why is called admin console and
not  Root master or Devil in disguise ahum ...

Groupwise. As of now. The website is going down in the next few weeks. A
new flame will come.
Windermere makes me nervous now that it runs on 64 bits hardware. I dont
see the need for 64 bit agents only. Oh well, we'll say, and order chinese
at home, just to forget these troubles.
