11.4 Handling an Installation Timeout

As a security feature, the Installation console times out after one hour. This helps prevent access by unauthorized persons if the Installation console is left unattended. When an installation session times out, you see the authorization page.

You then run the following command to obtain a new security token:

  • Linux:
  • Windows:
  • /opt/novell/groupwise/admin/gwadmin-ipc authorize¬†token_string
  • c:\Program Files\Novell\GroupWise Server\admin\gwadmin-ipc.exe authorize¬†token_string

If the Timeout page does not provide a token string, use the following method to gain access to the Installation console:

  • Linux:
  • Windows:
  • Reselect Configure in the Installation Wizard to authorize the Installation console session.
  • Close the existing browser window.
  • Double-click GroupWise Install on the desktop to start a new authorized Installation console session.
