Novell SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (SLES10)
Novell GroupWise WebAccess
Novell GroupWise Monitor
Installing Monitor Application on an existing Apache/Tomcat instance on SLES10.
Make sure that the following RPM's are installed:
Resolve any dependencies. Once the installation is complete go into YaST | Network Services | HTTP Server | Server Modules. Enable proxy
Then select Add Module. From the resulting list select proxy_ajp.
If you are not able to select proxy_ajp then you will need to manually enter it in the YaST Sysconfig Editor.
Run the GroupWise install (by default this is /opt/novell/groupwise/software/install) and install the WebAccess Application (do not select the option to install with Apache and Tomcat). This simply installs the RPM.
Once the install is complete select Configure WebAccess Application.
When prompted for WebAccess agents gateway directory it is only actually needing the COMMGR.CFG file.
Copy this from the
NOTE: It is usually best to copy this file as a binary; otherwise it may become corrupt.
When prompted for the paths to Apache and Tomcat make sure to change them from the defaults:
The installation program requires LDAP access to an eDirectory server so that it can create the application objects. If the server is in a DMZ it will be necessary to temporarily open the firewall for the installation. A common problem at this point is that the eDirectory LDAP server requires an SSL connection. It will be necessary to either supply the installation program with the LDAP servers SSL certificate, or disable the SSL/TLS requirement on the LDAP Group object in eDirectory.
Once the install is complete, LDAP access is no longer required.
SLES 10 no longer ships with the MOD_JK package like SLES 9 did. It is now necessary to use the MOD_PROXY modules instead, so some manual configuration is required at this point.
Remove the line:
"JkMount /gw/* ajp13"
Insert a line at the top:
ProxyPass /gw/ ajp://localhost:8009/gw/
For Monitor the line will be
ProxyPass /gwmon/ ajp://localhost:8009/gwmon/
Save the file.
Start Apache2 with
Start Tomcat5 with:
To ensure that these services start next time the SLES server restarts enter:
chkconfig apache2 on
chkconfig tomcat5 on
Access WebAccess using /gw/webacc instead of /servlet/webacc
Changing the rights on the commgr.cfg to -rw-r--r-- produced the webaccess login page
