Is there a way to determine the postoffice software version?


Hello,



I want to determine the po-software version and not the database version before I login with soap into the mailbox with the correct schema version.

I know I can see it after login with soap, but then I have to login twice.

Is there an option in the admin api?



e.g. GW4014R2SP1 has database version 1420 and software version 14.2.1.

In the soap for 14.2.1 there are a few new options, but you have to set the schema version you want.

This may totally not be what you are after, but if I go to
https://mybox.goes.here:9710/gwadmin-service/install/config I get a bunch
of XML back, without authenticating, including version tags for various
services.

Alternatively, depending on your relationship with the service, you may be
able to query the RPM database for the versions of GroupWise packages on
the box, though that implies you have console access.

Good luck.

Had done that, gives the database version not the software version.

In the poa-agent console the version and build is available, but then you need the password for the console 😞

You can get the Agent version from the MTA/POA/GWIA console. Example, for a POA

https://10.10.10.10:7180/server . If in your http request you specify header of Accept:text/xml the response will be somthing like:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<GROUPWISE>
<AGENT name="GroupWise Post Office Agent" version="2014 R2 " >
<SERVER>
<SERVER_NAME name="vm215" />
<SERVER_MODEL_NAME value="Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5620 @ 2.40GHz" />
<SERVER_NUMBER_OF_PROCESSOR value="1" />
<SERVER_PHYSICAL_MEMORY value="5872" unit="MB"/>
<SERVER_FREE_PHYSICAL_MEMORY value="194" unit="MB"/>
<TOTAL_AVAILABLE_DISK_SPACE value="20029.7" unit="MB"/>
<TOTAL_FREE_DISK_SPACE value="18383" unit="MB"/>
<SERVER_OS_VERSION value="SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12" />
<AGENT_BUILD_VERSION value="14.2.1 -124014" />
<DATE_AGENT year="2016" month="6" day="30" hour="7" minute="0" second="0" />
<DATE_RESOURCE year="2016" month="5" day="24" hour="16" minute="15" second="54" />
</SERVER>
</AGENT>
</GROUPWISE>

Thank you,



This requires a username and password for the console.

I think I will do a login into a mailbox / server with soap.

Tip:

use the port number that is configured in the poa.

Default 7181.
