GroupWise: Novell Data Synchronizer Mobility Pack 1.1.2 Ships!


Novell has released the latest update for Novell Data Synchronizer Mobility Pack. It is version 1.1.2. It is now available for immediate download....

We have delivered two updates since the Chinnook release in March. Each of these releases has focused specifically on customer reported issues, increased stability, support for upcoming releases of Novell Vibe OnPrem (Evergreen), Novell GroupWise Ascot and the Novell Vibe OnPrem Connector. We also continue to improve the administration, trouble shooting and monitoring aspects of the Mobility Pack.


    • New and Improved Storage Layer


    • Security Fixes


    • Send Mail - Honors size limits


    • Test Drive HTML Messages for iOS devices Note: Disabled by default


    • Improved Attachment Retention and Cleanup


    • Improved Duplicate Item Checking


    • Improved Sync Process


    • Reply/Forward Indicator Support


    • Calendar Sync Improvements

FYI: This is build 428.

Here is a link to the readme, and the list of issues that were resolved since March. We are very satisfied with the progress of the Mobility Pack and believe that these updates provide a solid foundation for delivering more enhancements and features. The next major release of the Mobility Pack is code named Delaware. It will be that release that will contain support for HTML email. As previously posted, "next major update of the Mobility Pack is still on schedule and will release in the coming months – I will say during Q3."

There are multiple ways to get the latest update. See this previous blog post for those details.

Please update and let us know how it goes!

  • I am running 428 with the security patch against GW 8.0.2. This update has introduced an unchangeable attachment limit of 500k and it is driving both me and my users nuts!

    The issue is outlined in TID 7008812:

    The admin UI shows the proper setting (in our case 10MB) as well as 10000 in /opt/novell/datasync/syncengine/connectors/mobility/factory/connector.xml and /opt/novell/datasync/syncengine/connectors/groupwise/factory/connector.xml.

    Is this going to be fixed soon or is there a way to roll back?

    Thanks in advance,
    Jeff Crawford
  • Jeff,

    Engineering is still looking at this issue. We have taken a couple of fixes, but so far customers are still seeing and reporting it.

    We will continue to monitor and I will post back out with additional details as soon as I have them.
