For GroupWise, you'd have to ask over in the GW forums.

Not sure about this, so hopefully somebody else will jump in.

I'm not familiar with SESAM, but in general, this would not be the right
way to restore eDirectory. You should be using eDirectory's own database
backup / restore capability (dsbk) for that. You should not be running
ndsrepair for anything afterward.

If SESAM is backing up the *files* of eDirectory, then the backup of the
database is worthless. eDirectory is a database and needs to be backed up
correctly. If they're somehow using the correct backup / restore methods
under the covers, then that's good and you can ignore this.
