Scalix and GroupWise PIM platforms cannot co-exist on the same server.

Scalix:

NotifyLink Enterprise Server (NLES) v4.5 does not require that mail and PIM server platforms match.  It is possible, therefore, to use one platform for mail processing and another for PIM processing.  You might even choose to have more than one PIM platform.  (Example: GroupWise for calendar, Exchange for contacts and tasks, etc.)

There is one limitation in this scenario.  GroupWise and Scalix PIM platforms cannot co-exist on the same server.  GroupWise systems require that GroupWise Client be installed on the NLES Messaging Component server.  Scalix systems require that Outlook and Scalix Connect for Wireless be installed on the NLES Messaging Component server.  When residing on the same server, the two components compete for access to the MAPI system resulting in a failure to process PIM data. 


Below are examples of GroupWise/Scalix configurations that will work and some that won't.
