When you use the Microsoft Exchange Server Migration wizard to migrate GroupWise mailboxes, the following error message may appear:

Microsoft Exchange Server Migration Wizard

GroupWise Shared Directory "WPC20" not specified in the Registry. Cannot
continue with the GroupWise Migration.

This error occurs when you select Migrate from Novell GroupWise in the Migration Wizard.


The Novell GroupWise 4.1 Windows client is not installed or the GroupWise Shared Code is not registered correctly on the computer you are running the migration from. The GroupWise Shared code is registered in the HKEY_ROOT\WpConfig\SHWin2x registry key. If the key is not present, or the information is invalid, you will need to re-install the GroupWise client.


To resolve this problem:

  • Install or re-install the Novell GroupWise 4.1 client. This will install and register the GroupWise Shared Code.


The Exchange Server GroupWise Migration utility uses the GroupWise client to access the GroupWise post office. Currently, only GroupWise 4.1 post offices can be migrated.

GroupWise is manufactured by Novell, a vendor independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.
