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
/opt/novell/groupwise/agents/bin/gwpoa --show @mypo.poa
Remember that your configs are now stored at:
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
Thanks, and I pray this makes your upgrade process a little less painful. GroupWise 8 Rocks!
