Re: Backing Up GroupWise

DBCopy can be your friend for backups if you want to script a free solution. I'm sure that there are many people in the forums here who can help you with such scripts.

My environment, which is dictated to me, is backed up using commercial software. I'm running OES and the software has agents for Linux. We backup the full NSS volume that GroupWise runs on and have never had any issues with recovery - did a POA recovery last week to get back e-mails accidentally deleted and it all worked fine.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

And select "Backup, Restore, Recovery" on the left.

Also look here: GWCheck /.beta

There are many backup solutions...you will have to decide on which one is right for you...same as any other issue with choices.

Re: Backing Up GroupWise

I either use dbcopy to get a backup of the data and then filereplicationpro to replicate the backup to another box, or SEP Sesam with the groupwise backup option installed

both seem to work quite nicely (the filereplicationpro option is quite a bit cheaper than SEP)

I use Sep Sesam here and don't use the GW module. I use tsafs with gwenable
switch and backs everything up great. Yes I have had to restore and have not
lost anything ever.
