4.2 Using the GroupWise Connector Log File

You can use the GroupWise Connector log file (default.pipeline1.groupwise-AppInterface.log) to verify that a message sent from GroupWise is received by your Synchronizer system.

  1. Monitor GroupWise Connector activity in the GroupWise Connector log file:

    1. In a terminal window, enter su - to become the root user, then enter the root password.

    2. Change to the following directory:

    3. Display the end of the GroupWise Connector log file:

      tail -f default.pipeline1.groupwise-AppInterface.log
    4. Observe the messages that the GroupWise Connector writes out.

  2. Press Enter several times to create a break in the flow of log messages.

  3. Log in to your GroupWise mailbox, then send a message to yourself.

  4. Observe the messages that are being written to the GroupWise Connector log file.

    You should be able to identify messages that include the test user name and indicate that a mail message was received by the Sync Engine.

    This test shows that the GroupWise Connector is successfully synchronizing GroupWise data to the Sync Engine. If the message does not appear to be received, refer to Section A.0, GroupWise Connector Troubleshooting for assistance.

    For more information about tracking data through your Synchronizer system, see Flatfile Connector Troubleshooting in Synchronizer System Management in the Novell Data Synchronizer System Administration Guide.
