While migrating a GroupWise System from NetWare to Linux using the GroupWise Server Migration Utility, we saw an error that the customer had remote document libraries. We knew we didn't have any remote document libraries, and reviewing their locations in Consoleone proved this. We continued with the migration, not really worrying too much about it. However, when we attempted to load the GroupWise POA on the LINUX server, it wouldn't load correctly. We loaded it manually and found it was giving an error, "Machine Class Not Defined In Area Definition (C06B)."
We had to remove the remote document libraries that GroupWise thought it had. We did this by following these steps:
1. Access GWCheck.
2. Select Analyze/Fix Library.
3. Remove the deleted storage areas.
4. Move documents first.
5. Reassign orphaned documents.
6. Select a user to reassign the documents to.
Once we ran this, we were able to start the POA without any issues.
The user had previously installed and deleted a remote storage area for one of the libraries without going through the necessary steps to remove it. Once we ran this GWCheck, it cleaned up any references to the deleted storage area and allowed the post office to start.
Below is a snapshot of the option used in GWCheck:
