Domain path changes back to root whenever it is set.
Change to GroupWise Domain path does not save when set in ConsoleOne


Under GroupWise System Operations | System Preferences | Linux Settings change the Linux Mount Directory to a valid path such as /mnt.

This option is only available with the Linux snapins.

 GroupWise System Preferences dialog box with the Linux Settings tab displayed

Mount Directory:  Specify the mount directory where ConsoleOne can find mounted file systems where domains and post offices are located.

GroupWise databases can be located on Linux servers, NetWare servers, or Windows servers. In the Linux mount directory, you create directories that have the same names as the servers that are mounted to those mount points. You do this for each server where a domain or post office is located that you want to access from ConsoleOne.

GroupWise administrators can have different mounts points depending on the workstation or server where they are running ConsoleOne. The mount directory information is stored in a user-specific preferences file (.consoleone/SnapinPrefs.ser in each GroupWise administrator's home directory).

Additional Information

This happens if you have your Linux Mount  Directory set to be the same as your domain directory.
