Howto: export Groupwise External Entity File IDs (FID) to a text file

Earlier this month I wrote about how to export Groupwise user File IDs (FIDs) to a text file. What I did not initially realize is this dumps only the user FIDs, not the Groupwise External Entity FIDs.

To dump a listing of your organization’s Groupwise External Entity FIDs, run the following from a Netware server’s SYS:\PUBLIC directory:

nlist “Groupwise External Entity” show “NGW: File ID” >fids.txt /R /S


fids.txt is the name of the file to export to
/R = objects at [ROOT] context
/S = Objects throughout all subordinate contexts
