recover or restore a deleted post office


Novell GroupWise 6

Novell GroupWise Enhancement Pack

Domain Administration



****The following information will restore the post office object in GroupWise and NDS but since you are restoring from backup any administrative changes made after the date of the restoration will be lost and is unavoidable****

Restore the owning domain database (in this example the domain is a secondary domain database) from backup, use System Operations  to connect to this restored domain database, graft the domain and all the users, then connect back to the primary domain, highlight the secondary domain object and go to Tools > GroupWise Utilities > System Maintenance and choose Synch Primary with Secondary.  This needs to be done to synchronize the primary domain.

If the secondary domain has not been backed up you will need to restore the primary domain database, regraft the domain which owns the deleted post office and all the users (this recreates the post office object in NDS), unload the MTA and any Gateways for the secondary domain, and rebuild the secondary domain which owns the deleted post office, after the rebuild is completed reload the agents for the secondary domain.
