When loading the POA, I got the following error copied from the log ...
 Unable to access Software Distribution Directory-Gw/vol1:\grpwise\software\GW7SDD\GW7SDD
The post office functioned properly but, as it states, could not connect to the SDD. Other post offices worked fine.
After poking around in ConsoleOne a bit, I noticed that the SDD referenced in the POA object was pointing to a different server's SDD on another server. For example, under the GroupWise tab select Post Office Settings (see Figure 1).
Figure 1 - Post Office Settings
To find out where the SDD is pointing to, I had to go to Tools > GroupWise System Operations > Software Distribution Directory Management (see Figure 2).

Once I knew where they were pointing to, I went back and changed the Software Distribution Directory (shown in Figure 1), using the drop-down list to select the appropriate SDD.
