Many times over the years folks have asked me where I got my GroupWise Stencils for Visio. Well, I can say that somewhere on the Internet they were posted, but that was many many years ago.

Since Microsoft purchase Visio, they have done an excellent job of removing all the great features/functions from it as well as removed Novell product Stencils from it.

The last greatest version was Visio 2000 SR1. This was the last version that had the ability to ‘suck out’ an eDirectory Tree and present it into a Visio drawing. When you have a very large tree and want to capture it -this is a must!

Anyway, I have post here the Novell stencils that I have along with GroupWise and even ‘pseudo’ Novell Cluster Stencils. I say ‘pseudo’ because they are not real stencils but can be used in Visio to represent clustering components. (I believe I just made JPG’s of objects.)

Enjoy!

P.S. I do not support these nor guarantee anything, except they work for me.

    Thanks for that, and excuse me for this question, but: how do I install those images onto MS visio? I could not find the appropiate information on uncle Google. :-)

      Default shapes are in “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\VisioXX\YYYY” where XX is your Visio version and YYYY your language code.
      But it is better to add the additional shapes to “C:\Documents and Settings\PROFIL\My Documents\My Shapes”.

      Regards,

    … but not in all of the localized versions

    In the help-section af Visio -> search for NDS… and you’ll get a comment like;

    Notice!

    Novell Directory Services stencils are not available in all localized version of the product. (loose translated from my localized version ;) )

    Funny thing – installed the english version, and the stencils was in fact present, there are 5 stencils:

    – NDS additional objects
    – NDS GroupWise objects
    – NDS objects
    – NDS partitions
    – NDS ZENWorks

    I’m still using Visio 2000 SR1. How do I make it do that?
