Error: "invalid port number" when installing the Calendar Publisher Host

This document (7004295) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

Novell GroupWise 8 Support Pack 1
Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 7
Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 8

Situation

When installing the Calendar Publisher host, an error is returned on the Administration Console: LDAP Server Information screen if the server address is a 10.x.x.x based address.  The error is "Invalid LDAP IP Address or port".  The error is also returned if the DNS name is used.

Resolution

This has been reported to engineering.
 
Workaround Steps:

1. Run the Calendar Publisher install normally but substitute a "bogus" ldap ip to get past that screen ( 1.1.1.1 seems to work well)

2. Edit the file sys:\novell\groupwise\calhost\calhost.cfg in notepad and change the line that says, "Admin.Ldap.ip=" to point to the real LDAP server:port.

3. Save this file and then load Tomcat.
