Running gwadmin-console on a gw2014 cluster

we have use the gw2014 interoperability guide for Cluster Installation on oes11sp2
the Cluster works correctly and we can migrate on all Cluster nodes

we have run gwadminutil config -Cluster enable on all Cluster nodes and gwadminutil installcfg -m user -u admin -p Password (correct Password: is it gw-Password or edirectory Password?)

https://ip-adress-cluster:9710/gwadmin-console/login.jsp) don't work

before enabling Cluster, the gwadmin-console will work

who can help?

thanks

Neither. The password is one you make up for a user specific to the
installation user. But note this is NOT the user that logs in as admin for the
system. It's only the installation user! The Admin user is the user you
created when you defined the system during the original installation.

When you say it doesn't work, does it simply not seem to be listening? What
happens when you run

/opt/novell/groupwise/admin/gwadmin-ipc query

Re: Running gwadmin-console on a gw2014 cluster

the result of /opt/novell/groupwise/admin/gwadmin-ipc query is:

10.1.0.61:9710=>rabenhdo(/media/nss/GWDATA/groupwise/rabenhdo)
10.1.0.61:9711=>rabenhpo.rabenhdo(/media/nss/GWDATA/groupwise/rabenhpo)

10.1.0.61 is the Cluster ip adress

10.1.0.61:9710 will not be reached, Telnet can Access on port 9710

Do you see anything in the gwadmin-service.log. This is typically on
/var/log/novell/groupwise/gwadmin, but it's possible that it's out on the
cluster resource volume now.

Re: Running gwadmin-console on a gw2014 cluster

Here the solution of 2 Cluster Problems:

1. WebAdmin console

The problem was caused by missing certificates (on the correct Folder). On non-cluster server, the certificates are in /opt/Novell/GroupWise in a directory called certificates.
There are two subdirs - a system GUID folder and install one.

When wanting to have a webadmin console enabled for a cluster, you need to create at the same level where are the domains and PO's dir structure a new directory called "GroupWise", then a sub-dir named "certificates". Please copy / paste all files that are located in the system GUID Folder directly in this Folder, don't use a other subdirectory

After that re-run gwadminutil config -cluster enable

and then restart gwadminservices. Then you can start webadmin console from the desktop icon that connects to a cluster IP address of the domain admin service.


2. Webaccess problem.

In the webacc.cf file located in /var/opt/Novell/GroupWise/webaccess there was a line about SOAP provider holding wrong IP address -> modified this parameter "Provider.SOAP.1.ip=<cluster IP of POA> and restarting tomcat helped to resolve the WA. In the GW2014-Installation there is no Point to install Software in a Cluster as in gw2012

We have a separate stand alone Server for webaccess and this Server is not in the Cluster.

Thank you to the novell Support, we had Need 5 hours to resolve this two Problems.

Re: Running gwadmin-console on a gw2014 cluster

So, the docs may not be clear, but you should run gwadminutil config -cluster enable and restarting adminservice BEFORE you do anything else. That way the admin service knows to create the certificates directory on the cluster resource.

Re: Running gwadmin-console on a gw2014 cluster

Hi there, yet another problem with groupwise 2014 & cluster environment.

This saturday we have upgrade to groupwise 2014, all was fine but I think that the gwadmin was not well configured. I can
see the gwadmin-console in my ip cluster, but my system is not working fine: I see a lot of pending operations and my
secondary domains cant see if I add another user, or domain. Pretty strange. I suspect that could be a problem related
to where is running gwadmin service in primary. for example: If I add a domain, this new domain can see the others domains.
But the others domains cant see this new domain. All links are fine between domains, all are open.
Other problem: If I add a user, in primary, (I only have a post office) the secondary domains cant see this user. I have
to rebuild the databases from primary.

If I run gwadmin-query in primary, I have this:

10.10.0.103:9711=>cmpostof.cmdom(/media/nss/POSTDB/gwpostof)
0.0.0.0:9710=>cmdom(/media/nss/POSTDB/gwdom)

10.10.0.103 is the Ip for my cluster. Is this right? I can reach the console on 10.10.0.103 anyway. cmdom is the primary
domain.

All is working, the mail flow is correct (mail can out and in to/from internet) but the admin operations are not sended to
secondary domains. Its pretty strange. I hope someone could help me. thank you!
