Version: GroupWise 6

If you're looking to upgrade to GroupWise 6 WebAccess, here's something you should know. The best way to update from GroupWise 5.5 Enhancement Pack to GroupWise 6 is to completely remove WebAccess, then install the GW6 WebAccess. Do it this way, and avoid any grief.

Step 1: Remove WebAccess

NetWare Environments

  1. Unload WebAccess (STOPWEB5 or STOPWEB for GroupWise 6), Netscape Enterprise (NSWEBDN), and Java (JAVA -EXIT).
  2. Rename the SYS:\JAVA directory. If you're using NetWare 5.1 then don't rename the SYS:\JAVA directory, rename the SYS:\JAVA\SERVLETS\COM directory.
  3. Rename the SYS:\NOVELL directory.
  4. Rename the SYS:\NOVONYX\SUITESPOT\DOCS\COM directory.
  5. Rename the GWCACHE.DB file. (By default it is in SYS:\SYSTEM\CACHE.)
  6. Delete the WebAccess NDS Object and select YES on removing the subdirectories. For GroupWise 6 you must also delete the following pieces under the NDS Domain object: NovellSpeller, LDAPProvider, GroupWiseProvider.

Windows NT Environments

  1. Unload the WebAccess Gateway.
  2. Stop the "WorldWide Web Publishing Service" under the NT "Services" control panel.
  3. Rename the NOVELL directory on the IIS server (default location is C:\NOVELL).
  4. Rename the COM directory on the IIS server (default location is C:\INETPUB\WWWROOT\COM).
  5. Rename the GWCACHE.DB file. (By default it is in SYS:\SYSTEM\CACHE.)
  6. Delete the WebAccess NDS Object and select YES on removing the subdirectories.
  7. Delete the following registry keys:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Novell Servlet Gateway
    Name: Version (REG_SZ-String type)
    Data: {Use "Version=" value from "servgate.ini" file on CD (config directory)}

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ Novell\Servlet Gateway
    Name: ServletGateway.properties (REG_SZ-String type)
    Data: (drive letter:)\Novell\Java\servlets\ ServletGateway.properties

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ CurrentControlSet\Services\W3SVC\Parameters
    Name: Filter DLLs
    Data: (drive letter:)\Inetpub\scripts\NSGISAPI.dll

  8. If re-installing, make sure to install from the NT server running the IIS webserver so that the registry will be properly configured for the Novell Servlet Gateway.
  9. Restart the "WorldWide Web Publishing Service" under the NT "Services" control panel.

Step 2: Install GroupWise 6 WebAccess
