    Ahhh, that will be nice, as even though the utilization was niced, it
    sets off NAGios at times.

    What's New in GroupWise 2014 R2 SP2

    - Micro Focus Filr Integration: GroupWise 14.2.2 allows you to integrate with Micro Focus Filr. You can enable Filr in the Admin Console > select a Domain, PO or user > Client Options > Integrations > Micro Focus Filr. You will need to enter the URL of your Filr installation. With Filr enabled, you can force all attachments to be placed in Filr or set a size limit for the attachments and anything over that size is placed in Filr. In the client, when creating an email, you can add a Filr reference as an attachment or upload an attachment to Filr when you send the email. You can search Filr when using Find. You can save received attachments to Filr using the File > Save menu.

    - DE Mail Integration: You can enable DE Mail in the Admin console > select a Domain, PO or user > Client Options > Integrations > DE Mail. Users will then see DE Mail options in the client when sending an email to a DE Mail address.

    - Vacation Rule Enhancements: Vacation rules have been updated so that you can have a separate message body for replying to external users and you can limit your replies to external Address Book members.


    Known Issues in GroupWise 2014 R2 SP2

    Installing .NET 4.5 on Windows 7 through GroupWise Client takes a long time
    When installing .NET 4.5 on a Windows 7 machine using the GroupWise Client install, the install can take over 12 minutes to install .NET. Installing .NET prior to the GroupWise client install fixes the issue.

    No Default Email Client error after installing GW Client with Microsoft Outlook installed
    If you install the GroupWise Client with Microsoft Outlook installed on the machine, you could run into the following error:

    No e-mail program is assigned to export the desired action. Install a corresponding e-mail program, or create a map in the system control under "Standard Programs" if a program is already installed.

    To fix this issue, create a Novell GroupWise profile in Outlook. See "Creating the GroupWise Account Manually" in the "GroupWise Mobility Service 2014 R2 Administration Guide"

    WebAccess Item Read Window Closes when Navigating to Next or Previous Item
    If you have an item open in WebAccess in Internet Explorer 11 or Microsoft Edge, and you navigate to the next or previous item using the arrows in the Item Read window, then the Item Read window closes. This does not happen in other browsers. We are working on a fix for this issue.

  • I'm sure this has been asked (and answered) before but.... can the 14.2.2 client access a 14.2.1 PO?
  • Hi CB,

    Yes it can.... it is only between major updates that it can't. Support Packs are inter-operable.

    In addition to Lauras answer: Of course, any enhancement that needs
    server side features won't work until the server is updated.

  • We found our first problem. The install process for the client, specifically the install.bat that's described for installing with ZCM. It calls for forcing the install of dotnetfx45. This breaks if the computer has the same or newer version already installed. We've tried it a number of different ways, always the same outcome. It should test to see if the dotnetfx45 is already installed and error gracefully. Instead the installer stops to inform the user of the problem. Not so great when it's a silent install or deployed as part of an image.
  • I installed 14.2.2 tonight. Seems to have went smoothly. One thing I did notice, when I run "rpm -qa | grep groupwise" I get:


    When I log into WebAccess and go to Settings > About it shows "Program Release: 14.2.1 11/22/2016 (WebAccsesServlet.class) | POA Version 14.2.2 | POA Build: 126868

    Is it just a cosmetic thing within WebAccess or did I miss something in the upgrade?
  • Browser cache by chance?
    The install bounces tomcat and apache, so these shouldn't be an issue.

    Cache is cleared. Still shows 14.2.1

    Sorry to say, but please don't use the .bat. It's basically a very bad
    idea to boot to have ZCM call batch files (it has no control over, aka
    can't properly decide if the install worked or not) to install software.
    And then, the .bat isn't really very well done or smart.
