    Details

    During the last couple of weeks, I've been running into GW Systems that were defective, but the local admins were unaware how to fix the problems.

    Novell GroupWise 6.5 SP1
    Novell GroupWise 6

    Symptom:

    GroupWise diagnostics shows users GUID as 59008 after upgrading from GW 6 to 6.5 SP1

    How to Check

    1. In ConsoleOne, highlight a user who has an associated GroupWise object. (A user that existed in GW 6, prior to the upgrade)
    2. Choose Tools > GroupWise Diagnostics > Display Object, Note in the GDS Information window the field with the objects GUID value is labeled as "59008".

    Impact:

    Some 3rd Party applications might fail
    Problems with shared folders / Addressbooks across PO's

    See TID 10091331
