gwadminutil-upgrade (1)


gwadminutil-upgrade - The GroupWise Administration Utility database upgrade option.


          gwadminutil upgrade path


Upgrades the version of a domain or post office database.

The upgrade process copies the data dictionary (.dc) files that match the version of GWAdminUtil into the domain or post office directory, performs a Recover on the database, and then completes the upgrade of the database. In order for the version upgrade to succeed, the following conditions must be met:

  • The owning domain must already be upgraded to the GWAdminUtil version.

  • The version information from the owning domain must already be replicated into the target database.

This command is the equivalent of using the Installation console to upgrade a domain or post office.


Usage Options:


Specifies the path of the database to upgrade to the current GroupWise version.

Help Options:

--help , -?

Displays the help information and exits.
