Hello Forum Members,
The time has come to retire our SLES 12 operating systems under GroupWise 18.2, and install new ones with SLES 15 SP1. I enjoyed the process of creating a new template for the 60 post offices. Autoyast, SUSE Manager, Salt, Reload, Redline, postfix are all my friends now. Unfortunately I've run into a situation, that I cannot handle on my own. I am sure that I will get help from my colleagues, but until then let me explain it. Long story short, xinetd is not there in SLES 15, or at least it is not installed by default and from what I've read the proper way is to use systemd instead. I could still install it, but gwha is the only service using it, so I would rather make a step forward and convert to systemd. I hope that Microfocus is aware of the situation and in a future release they will provide the necessary documentation and files for this out of the box. I've open this thread to create a knowledgebase for the transition of gwha service from xinetd to systemd. Everybody is welcome to join!
