IADSystem connect issue


I have the following configuration:

Machine 1 : GroupWise, EDirectory.
Machiine 2 : GroupWise Client, Novell Client.

I try to connect to GroupWise from Machine 1 to Machine 2 using
GroupWise Admin API.

When I call IADSystem.ConnectByDN I Recieve

System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException] {"Exception occurred.
(Exception from HRESULT: 0x80020009 (DISP_E_EXCEPTION))"}

using gwAdmin from sample I received :
80020009 Error occurred opening the database. Check the path.
The same issue occure when method IADSystem.Connect is call.

Does anyone know who to fix ?

Re: IADSystem connect issue

Admin API req. both Novell client and GW client, as well as a logged in

As such, you can connect from machine 2 to the Domain, and then do
admin stuff on GW

You can not connect from a machine that doesn't have a gwclient to a

You can not connect to a machine running a GW client from anywhere
