Since the release of GroupWise 8 the upgrades are off the chain! Everyone is wanting to dig into the new client and bring our world into 1 interface! With that being said, it’s also no secret that upgrades bring troubleshooting…especially on Linux where many of us are still ramping up to speed.

  • Make sure that you realize that there is already Hot Patch 1 for GroupWise 8 on OES2 SP1. – CRITICAL Patch especially if your system resides on an NSS Volume
  • If you have an agent that will not load yet you cannot see it….because they do not load graphically anymore, do this: the following command will load them in a graphical window on the OES2 Server.

Example – gwia

/opt/novell/groupwise/agents/bin/gwia --show @gwia.cfg

poa

/opt/novell/groupwise/agents/bin/gwpoa --show @mypo.poa

Remember that your configs are now stored at:

/opt/novell/groupwise/agents/share

Get them working and then go back to running them as designed with a simple rcgrpwise start.

We also need to teach ourselves to look at the agents via a web browser, these http ports can be edited with ConsoleOne on the properties of each agent.

poa – 7180
mta – 7181
gwia -9850

Thanks, and I pray this makes your upgrade process a little less painful. GroupWise 8 Rocks!

    You said “We also need to teach ourselves to look at the agents via a web browser”. Why not take it a step further, and use the new web panel feature in GroupWise 8, and put the monitoring screens right in the client. I did so with mine, along with a tab on nav bar. I rprobably check the screens now more frequently than on NetWare (when I just happened to be at the server, or looking for a problem)
