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!

    This is what I've observed and learned from the GroupWise Advantage Support Engineer we work with.

    Updates (including 1.1.1 and 1.1.2) to Data Sync Mobility Pack can be applied via zypper (per TID 7007012). However, I have been trying to determine (SR 10704091292) if Mobility Pack can be updated via YaST Online Update. My experience tells me they are not available via YaST Online Update (YOU).

    In addition, it is my understanding that the 1.1.1 and 1.1.2 Security Patches (as referenced in TID 7008690) are not available via zypper or YaST Online Update ("the channel") because they are not in RPM form and thus cannot be deployed via the channel (NCC with zypper or YaST Online Update).

    Can you confirm or deny? It seems to me like all Data Sync updates (regardless of their type) should be delivered via the NCC channel and could be installed via zypper or YOU.

    There are a couple of ways to get the this update and all updates.

    When you update the Mobility Pack software from the Novell Customer Center, you automatically obtain the software through the Novell Update channel. This is a convenient way to receive regular updates.

    I think this is the Channel you are referring to??? See one of the previous blog posts for instructions on how to get it. Although this patch is not specifically a 'Security Patch'...all patches can be downloaded automatically and regularly.

    Is there another Channel you want this through???

    I understand that the 1.1.2 security patch is not available via the channel because it is not in RPM form. When do ALL future updates plan to be available via the channel?
    Running build 428 against NW6.5-SP8 / GW8.02HP2
    All looks OK.

    I would love to see the Columns Sorted for easy finding the correct "subject"

    Please see the previous blog that gives details on all of the upcoming releases of Mobility, GroupWise Ascot, GroupWise 8.0.x, etc.

    Here is a link:…

    We plan to ship GroupWise 8.0.2 HP3 in the next few weeks.

    However, all of the issues listed in the 8.0.2 Readme have been resolved and publically available since January - when we released GroupWise 8.0.2 HP2.

    Note this comment in the following readme:

    GroupWise 8.0.2 Hot Patch 2 resolves all of the GroupWise 8.0.2 issues that are listed below.

    Let me know if there is a specific issue you need fixed that is not listed here and I will follow up.


    Since GW 8.0.2 and Novell Data Synchronizer Mobility Pack still seem to have some problems, can you give me an indication when we can expect GW 8.0.3 (and/or a fix for those problems as mentioned in the readme)?
