Installing GMS issue

Just prove it can be done I installed SLES 11 SP3 with Add-on OES11 SP2 a little while back, and have a working server with a working GroupWise system including Web Access.
I want to go the next stage and (think) I have installed a XEN virtual machine (SLES11 again), onto which I want to install GroupWise Mobility Server. However, I don't seem to be getting very far, even though I'm trying to follow a Cool Solutions article by Gregg Hinchmann.

I have created a Trusted App, and have created a key file (this was done on the Host SLES machine) now I need to copy this gwtamobility.key file to the VM / Mobility server, but I can't for the life of me work out how to do this. I'm feeling a little stupid, as I guess it must be quite simple but I'm new in this VM business and don't understand how I can copy it from the host machine to the virtual machine, before I can tackle the rest of the installation.

Can anyone enlighten me, as the install guide says "Copy the key file to a convenient location on the Mobility server. The Installation program
automatically transfers the trusted application key from the key file into the configuration of the GroupWise Sync Agent" ... this does not actually help me...

Re: Installing GMS issue

Hi,

Open a terminal session on the host and use SCP to copy the file to the virtual machine - just a suggestion.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

Re: Installing GMS issue

Along with Laura's suggestion of SCP. You can use rsync, ftp, or simply copy the file to your local workstation then up to the VM...or you can send yourself an email with the file in an attachment and then open it with WebAccess on the VM and save the file to the local directory. Be creative...it's Linux. 🙂

Good luck!

Re: Installing GMS issue

Thanks Laura & Elbert.

I may have bigger issues in relation to my VM, as it won't browse to external URLs. I'm finding I can ping the host and vice versa, but not externally. I may have to look further into the VM configuration, and I guess that may mean opening a post in another forum.

(When I first set up the VM it broke the working DHCP on the host, and I've only just had Novell support fix that).

Cheers. Jerome
