Can't create new Post Office on SLES11 OES11

To whom it may concern

On my SLES11 OES11 Server, I connect to my Primary Domian in ConsoleOne.I Right click on my container were all the other Post Offices exist.I select new > object > select GroupWise Post Ofice.Add Location > SDD > PO Location > Platform > Timezone >Language > Additional Properties and select next.I add the IP address of the new Server and select Finish.

After selecting Finish It goes back to the setup screen again, without creating any new Post Office.I do have the correct GroupWise 8.0.3 HP1 snapins installed in ConsolOne.I even reinstalled ConsoleOne, and I even tried to create the Post Office from my Primary Domain login, on to that Linux Server itself.

What else can I try to do to create my new Post Office.

Regards

Hi,

Instead of doing this from the eDirectory view in ConsoleOne, open the GroupWise view. Connect to the owning domain. Then right-click the domain and select New | Post Office | etc, etc.

Let us know how it goes.

Cheers,

Thanks for responding.Yes I did try it as you mentioned, but still no luck.I then connected to the Primary Domain (DOMx)and it actually worked, but obviously I had to delete the PO and POA again, because I don't want my Primary Domain (DOMx) to be the new Domain called (DOMxx).

Do you have a Software Distribution Directory configured? (Groupwise view, GW System operations, Software Directory Management)

And, is there a wpoffice folder under the primary domain with dc files inside
it?

Yes my SDD is configured correctly, and there is an wpoffice folder with an ngwguard.dc file inside it.I though it was an LDpath issue in ConsoleOne just adding the /bin in the config file of ConsoleOne, but it is not the issue.The strange thing is, if it was ConsoleOne or JAVA I would have seen errors but I don't see any errors.

Hi,

In your secondary domain, the one that you want to "own" the Post Office - take a look in it's directory for a gwpo.dc file. Let us know if it's there.

I opened a SR at Novell.We used the following TID : Support | How to create a Secondary Domain on Linux that I used to to create my Secondary Domain, but just for creating my PO and POA.It worked.And my agents are all up and running again.

Thanks for the support.
