In Groupwise 7, I found that when Groupwise (GW) is configured to authenticate to an LDAP server with the "Compare" (as opposed to the Bind) method, user accounts could still login to GW (client or web access) if the eDir account was disabled. The workaround is to disable the GW account separately.

This freaked me out when I first noticed it... I think that besides comparing that the passwords match, the first quick check should be the "Account Disabled" status.

Can anyone confirm if this is the same with GW8?
