Need help installing GWIA on Linux - specify domain director

Hello all,

I am attempting to configure a GroupWise 8 GWIA on a SLES10/OES2 server. Our GroupWise 8 domain is on a NetWare 6.5 server.

When I get to the "Domain Directory" step, I am stuck. The manual says "If you are installing the Linux Internet Agent, record the eDirectory context of the Domain object in LDAP format." Therefore, I am entering "cn=vcny_do,ou=groupwise,ou=new_york,o=vcc" which is the correct LDAP context. The installer throws a "The specified domain directory does not exist or it cannot be accessed" error.

What am I doing wrong?

Question #1, is eDirectory required on the OES2 GWIA server?

Question #2, what other OES2 prerequisite(s) am I missing?

Thanks,
- Steve

You can't do that, and even if you could, you shouldn't. The GWIA needs
*file* access to the domain database, and you do *NOT*, I repeat *NOT*
do that across the network. In other words, you need a secondary domain
installed on the same server as the GWIA.
