Migrated GWIA Message Transfer Status for Send blank

I am migrating from GW12 to GW 14. The destination server is OES 11 sp1 VM running on a XEN host. I successfully migrate and upgrade the domain and the post office but can not get the gwia to communicate with the MTA. I have even deleted the migrated GWIA and created a new one with no success. Any help will be appreciated.

GWIA connect to the MTA to receive messages but the Send connection does not start.

Thanks,

Joe

    Does it work if you change the MTA port to 0 so that it uses file transfer only?
    I find that sometimes switching to file transfer, and then back to MTP will fix
    a stuck GWIA. Of course, unless you are using multiple GWIAs for failover, MTP
    for the GWIA really isn't at all necessary.

    I guess I'm confused then. The GWIA is running but is showing no Message Conversion Threads or SMTP threads running Idle or otherwise. When I try to send email to outside addresses I get a "Transfer Failed " error messages on the client. Never seems to get to the GWIA at all.

    Thanks for the help.

    If it were me, I'd just delete the GWIA and recreate. Write down any important
    settings, like relay host, hostname, etc.

    Tried that. Still no joy. DVA was not starting. Fixed that. With all agents and gateways up and running, using direct link or tcp/ip link, outbound messages don't get to the gwia. Send status shows "transfer failed." Verbose logs on POA or GWIA show no indication of errors. MTA shows messages send to agents and gateways.

    Thanks,

  • Hi Joe,

    Are you sure that your GWIA is bound to port 25 and that the port has not been "hijacked" by postfix running on the server where the GWIA is?

    I'm not in front of a server right now, but I think the commend is: netstat -plan | grep 25

    Let us know.

    Cheers,
  • Hi,

    Try this command for better results: netstat -peanut | grep -i :25 | grep -i listen

    Perhaps post the output here for us -thanks.

    Cheers,
