GroupWise 2012 includes new view files for the GroupWise Windows client. When the POA starts, it updates the post office database and also attempts to update the Windows client view files (.vew) in the post office directory, regardless of whether the post office located on Windows or Linux. To do so, the POA requires access to the post offices’s software distribution directory, regardless of whether the software distribution directory is located on Windows or Linux. If the POA does not have access to the software distribution directory, you can manually copy the view files.
You can check whether or not the POA was able to update the view files by verifying the dates of the files in the /post_office/ofviews/win directory, where post_office is the path to the post office directory.
If the files have older dates, copy all files from
Replace /software with the path to the software distribution directory and replace /post_office with the path to the post office directory.
You can also perform this task in ConsoleOne. See GroupWise 2012 Administration Guide.
