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!

  • 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???

  • 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.
  • Patrick,

    You are right....these patches are not available yet through YaST Online Update. It does require us to change a few things in our build process.

    We do plan to do this and in the future you should expect patch RPMs.

    Thanks for pursuing allowed me to do some follow up.

  • Mukesh investigated a bit more on this and has updated the TID. It is not a complete/perfect solution yet, but at least you have accurate and up-to-date information on what we have so far.
