Changes Since the Last Release (GroupWise 6)

The following sections provide information about changes that have been made in Support Pack 1 to resolve issues in the GroupWise 6 release. These changes do not include information about features that have been added in Support Pack 1. For information about new features, see "What's New in GroupWise 6" in the GroupWise 6 documentation.

The following changes were made to resolve GroupWise administration issues:

You can create a post office which previously existed in your GroupWise system. (279470)

If, while in ConsoleOne, you attempt to create a new domain while connected to a secondary domain, your domain connection will be switched from the secondary to the primary. If the primary domain connection cannot be made, you will receive the following error: "Database Error: The following GroupWise domain database file cannot be accessed properly: <UNC path to primary domain>." (244647)

When creating a new dial-up schedule profile for the Internet Agent (Internet Agent object > SMTP/MIME tab > Scheduling page), the schedule information will be saved correctly to the new profile. In the past, if the new profile was not added to the end of the profile list (because of the alphabetic listing), the schedule information could be incorrectly assigned to another profile. (266777)

GroupWise object descriptions display correctly. (266715)

Modification of GroupWise objects no longer causes DB17 error (279931)

The Setting Source information for the Internet Agent's Access Testing (Internet Agent object > Access Control tab > Settings page > Test button > View Access button) now displays the correct information. (261411)

GroupWise users who are members of an NDS organizational role or NDS group can now be successfully removed as members of the role or group (266772)

The SSL settings for the MTA and POA have been moved to their own page (ConsoleOne > MTA or POA object > GroupWise tab > SSL page). A certificate file is required to enable SSL. (263209)

The Apply button on the WebAccess object property pages in ConsoleOne now works correctly. (263401)

Moving or renaming an object in a single-domain system will now correctly generate synchronization updates to be sent to any connected external GroupWise systems. (263934)

Switching connections from one domain to another while GroupWise object property pages are open no longer causes a NullPointerException error. (266272)

Creating a new Link Schedule profile for an MTA will generate an MTA restart request. (264584)

You can now disable Daylight Saving Time (DST) when modifying a time zone definition (265857)

Scheduled events that have been migrated from GroupWise 5.x to GroupWise 6 can now be edited. (267229)

Releasing a GroupWise domain in ConsoleOne no longer causes errors. (267598)

A user or resource, when added to a distribution list through the Distribution List page on the User or Resource object, now appears on the Membership page of the Distribution List object. (267793)

When creating a new post office with a library, the document type lookup table is now populated with the appropriate entries. (268362)

When updating from GroupWise 5.x, the correct document storage area paths are retained (Library object > GroupWise tab > Storage Areas page). (268871)

The Validate Domain option can now be used to fix the problem of two or more domains being marked as primary in a GroupWise system. The Validate Domain solution will only work is you have previously created Admin-defined fields; Admin-defined fields, when created, are assigned to the primary domain, so the validation process can check to see which primary domain the Admin-defined fields are assigned to and then change the other primary domains to secondary domains. (277461)

The Internet Address options for External objects (External object > GroupWise tab > Internet Address page) will not be available unless Internet Addressing for the GroupWise system has been enabled. (281244)

If a duplicate entry occurs when rebuilding a database, the duplicate entry's index and record ID will be written to a log file named REBUILD.LOG in the primary domain's directory. (277309)

After merging a GroupWise 5.x domain into a GroupWise 6 system, you can now successfully move a user from a post office in the 5.x domain to a post office in a GroupWise 6 domain. All user information and mailbox items will be moved. (275687)

You can now edit the default class of service for GroupWise WebAccess (WebAccess Agent object > Access Control tab > Settings page) and GroupWise Internet Agent (Internet Agent object > Access Control tab > Settings page). (277894)

When grafting users, non-NDS users who do not match with NDS users now appear as unmatched users. (282916)

You can now disable the flastname addressing format (279788)

When you move a user from one post office to another, any GroupWise client options you've set for the user at the User level will be retained. (264123)

Various issues regarding ConsoleOne performance were resolved (259116)

You can now change a non-NDS user's GroupWise password in ConsoleOne, either through the user's GroupWise Account page (GroupWise External Entity object > GroupWise tab > Account page) or the user's GroupWise client options. (269946)

You can now assign an NDS Group to a post office in a domain that you are not connected to. Previously, you could only see the post offices in the currently-connected domain. (273858)

Resolved an issue with the HTML viewers (by updating to version 7.1 of the viewers) that was causing problems some documents to display slowly and tie up the Web server. (272486)

After moving a user from one post office to another, Busy Search will work correctly. (269662)

(275206)

The GroupWise client now works with RSA Keon Desktop CA. (275979)

The GroupWise client is compatible with Windows XP and Windows Office XP. (282895)
