The POA does not start.
The /home switch
The /home switch points to an unavailable location.
Make sure the location specified by the /home startup
switch is currently available to the POA. If the post office is
located on a different server from where the POA will run, preparations
for the connection between the POA and the post office are required:
- If you are using the NetWare® POA,
you must use the /dn startup
switch or the /user and /password startup
switches to enable the POA to log in to the server where the post
office is located, or you can provide the username and password
in ConsoleOne®, on the Post Office Settings page of the
Post Office object.
- If you are using the Linux POA, you must mount the
file system where the post office is located to the server where
the POA is running.
- If you are using the Windows POA, you must create
the drive mapping to the post office before starting the POA.
and Starting the POA in
Office Agent in the GroupWise
7 Administration Guide.
The server where the post office resides is down.
Check the status of the server where the post office resides.
The POA does not have sufficient rights to the post office
Make sure the network rights in the post office are correct.
Start the POA using the /rights switch
to determine the specific problem the POA is encountering and make
corrections as needed. Possible Cause:
The post office database (wphost.db)
The POA server has inadequate resources.
The POA is not installed correctly.
A remote document storage area is unavailable.
Make sure the remote server where the document storage area
is located is running.
Make sure the POA has sufficient rights to log in.
Make sure the /user and /password or /dn switches
have been provided in the POA startup file. Action:
As a temporary workaround, you can start the POA with the /noconfig switch, so
it can start without trying to access the remote document storage
Language files are missing.
A POA is already running on the server.
If you have defined multiple POAs for the same post office
in ConsoleOne, the /name switch
is required in each startup file to specify which POA configuration
to use when you start each instance of the POA.
The POA encounters an error condition.
