How to uninstall POA and keep MTA running on Linux server?

Hi.

I have a server here, running one post office and one MTA.I want to remove this empty PO. All I want on this primary server is a running MTA.

So, I want to remove the post office (POA) installed and keep the domain (MTA).

How do i manage to do that on a Linux server?

Thank you.
Dan.

Hi Dan,

Yes you can remove a Post Office and leave the MTA in place.

Here's the documentation on how to do it: https://www.novell.com/documentation/groupwise2014r2/gw2014_guide_admin/data/admin_po_manage_delete.html

Please let us know how it goes or if you need further assistance.

Cheers,

Hi Laura.

Thank for your fast answer!

Yes, I found that information, but I suppose it doesn't remove all the stuff on the server, does it? May be I'm from old school, but on previous versions (like 8 for example), we would have to remove the POA agent and all references to it (even in the rcgrpwise command) manually on the server. Does GroupWise 2014 admin do all that for us?

Thank you again :-))))

Hi,

After you have successfully removed/deleted the Post Office, and during the process removed the files, I believe that you may still have to edit the gwha file to remove references to the POA to stop it from trying to start.

Let us know how it goes.

OK, someone provided me the answer: You got to edit the file /etc/opt/novell/groupwise/gwha.conf and comment (#) the lines associated to the PO.

So, when using rcgrpwise, it will only start the MTA, no POA running.

Thank's again.

The agent files themselves aren't as separate as they once were, so there
is nothing to clear there, and as per Morris, the rest is now taken care
of for us. I would still be checking with 'rcgrpwise status' after all
that to see what it shows.
