I was tinkering with a new install and the library function thinking of saving documents to a SnapServer. Authentication wasn't working as I planned so I decided to abandon the project for later. I deselcted the library unc mapping feference within ConsoleOne/GroupWise/POA/Libraries and left the default location, the PO selected as the location for documents.
The time was approaching to get the new GroupWise server into operation. I had the server down for a week while working on another project. When I brought the server back up my mail clients (GroupWise and Outlook 2003) were relentlessly prompting for my password, another test user was getting the same thing.
. I used the GroupWise Monitor Web interface to check GroupWise and found that the Domain was up/Normal, the GWIA was up/Normal but the PO was down (POA_PO.Domain). No information from the Monitor, somewhat useless as it could not gather information as it was down.
Now, so many days later AND after shutting down the server I had no idea what could be causing problems with GroupWise today. At the terminal I went to /etc/init.d and called "grpwise status". It showed:
Checking [POA_PO.Domain] unused
Checking [Domain] done
Checking [Domain.GWIA] done
I went to the console and tried to start the POA manually as I had done in the original install. Again, at the terminal I changed to /opt/novell/groupwise/agents/bin and invoked './gwpoa --show -home /opt/novell/groupwise/POA_po &' (without the quotes). It stried to start and left me with a window with the error "Machine Class Not Defined In Area Definition (C06B)."
Started Googling for similar phrases without much hope. I logged into Novell's Forums and started to get more of what I was looking for! Found an article, document # 10099631 written in Nov 11th 2005 for GroupWise 6.5. Followed it all the way through and did not fix the problem but I did learn gwcheck! I deleted the pointer to //SnapServer/Shared/Groupwise folder from the library tab in ConsoleOne and now needed to clear it out from an apparent 'other' location(s).
Hopefully anyone with this similar problem will find your article/Tip and be able to remedy it quickly. Thanks Matt!!!
