Continuing the WebAccess Theme

I figured I would impart a couple more tips on you all regarding WebAccess, which seems to be the most confusing part of GroupWise for most people.

Firstly, enabling the admin interface on the servlet.  Nice and easy this one. Go to the webacc.cfg file – sys:\novell\webaccess on NW, /opt/novell/groupwise/webaccess/webacc.cfg on linux.  Edit it and look for Admin.WebConsole.  Change Admin.WebConsole.enable to true and set a user name and password to something else.  Now restart tomcat, or wait the default 10 mins for the settings to be reread and now you can log in with:

http://serveraddress/gw/webacc?action=Admin.Open (case sensitive).

You can see who is logged into WebAccess and which GWINTER they have been redirected to.

Next, forcing your webserver to direct you to a particular GWINTER.  This is useful if you have multiple WebAccess Agents and you want to make sure that they are all working.  Use the URL format http://serveraddress/gw/webacc?GWAP.ip= where is the IP address of your GWINTER.  You can then check that it worked by going to the Admin.Open link from above.

Next, changing the templates.  Another URL command.  http://serveraddress/gw/webacc?User.interface=simple

You can substitute css or frames (if you still have those installed) for simple.  You should note that all these commands are case sensitive.

One last useful tip to find out what version of the servlets (or WebAccess Application) you are running.  Log into WebAccess and then clieck Novell GroupWise WebAccess up at the top left.  This page will show you what version and build date you are running on the servlets.

Think that’s it for now unless anyone has questions?

    Just noticed this other blog post today, which mentions web features that the author feels are missing from GW. It’s interesting since he mentions them as a Drupal dev, which I am too, although I also code using GW:
