Problem codes for GWCheck

First off, is there any document that has all the gw problem and error codes? Also, is there a list of misc. support options that can be used when running gwcheck to fix certain error's and problems? Not that the problem 98 is a problem below, can't seem to find any info on it.

- checking Category records
Problem 98- Missing one or more category fields [drn=7103, type=65535, name=Motion]
- Record 7103 updated successfully
- Repairing category record (drn = 7103): succeeded

Thanks in advance!

    I usually use this one: http://wiki.novell.com/index.php/GWCheck_Problems

    Problem 98 should normally fix itself... it would be good to know which GroupWise versions (and patchlevel) you are using for client and server.

    Thanks. Have you checked if those errors keep returning on the next gwcheck run?

    What actually causes that error, I don't know. Could be something the client is not always doing correctly when creating a new item... but AFAIK it's not critical or noticeable anyway. At least not that I've seen or heard.

    Yes, lots in addition to what Willem posted
    http://wiki.novell.com/index.php/GroupWise:_GWCheck_Errors_and_Problems
    https://www.novell.com/documentation/groupwise2012/gw2012_guide_tsh1/data
    /hi5b8nd2.html

    There is not any official list of the misc support options for the simple
    reason that too many people would just try them out to see how they work.
    There are some unofficial ones out there, but they are certainly not for
    early steps of troubleshooting and certainly not a part of regular
    maintenance.

    For regular maintenance here is what I look at

    Yeah, originally I was looking for an extensive list I know of... I think it was on gecheck.com, but that site is down it seems.

    Here's another one that has quite a listing (haven't looked at it in detail): http://www.groupwise.org/gwcheckoptions.htm

    But as Andy already cautions.... do take care in using the Misc options. They are not hidden for nothing, and always look at the result logs from a check in detail before pressing on with a next check. And as always, a good backup is holly :)

    And from what I can see in the WayBack machine, it has been down like
    that for a while. The domain expires in just over a month, but has been
    adjusted recently. We'll know better in August.

    That's the one I use. I know the guy(Bob) who put it together and I
    keep bugging the site owner(Andreas) to update the rest of the site. I
    think I'll just have to update it myself and give him the files. He is
    so not a web guy, though he sure knows his GroupWise.

    I never thought of backups as a plant or girls name, but since they can
    be holy as well, I can go with that ;)

    LOL! The difference one letter more can make :) But of course I meant Holly: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5svEpfmHTN4 (I'm sure she can magically bring back the data as well ;-) )

  • I have like 1 per run every once in a while an it's the same user but different record every time. What is a category record in groupwise anyway?
