Problem

A Forum reader recently asked:

"I have set up the GroupWise agents (MTA, POA) under an OES-Server. When i start the ./install in the distribution directory, I can choose install agent - but then it sits on 0% complete for the install procedure."

And here's the response from David Dabinett ...

Solution

Do you have the correct file system rights? If you do not untar the files on the Linux system but instead copy them from a Windows machine, you will not have the correct rights.

I also found that I needed the install file in the root of the SDD to have rights=75. Also, the install.sh file in the gwinst directory needs 755 rights, or I get the 0% installation.
