Update GW8 to GW 2014

Hello,

I would like to update gw 8 to gw 2014 and OES 2(SLES 10 sp4 x86_64) to OES 11.
The update would be on the same server (in place).
Which update should be make first gw or oes? Does it have any meaning?

Regard,

Hi,

Welcome to the forums and thank you for your question.

Double-check that your existing server is indeed 64bit. Then, personally, I would upgrade the operating system first. GroupWise 2014 is not supported on OES 2

Please let us know how it goes or if you have any further questions.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

Re: Update GW8 to GW 2014

Hi,

The only issue that I've had with GroupWise 8 on OES 11 is that sometimes on an agent shutdown/restart the agent goes into a dead state - you have to delete the uid.run file from the agent directory and then it starts normally. This is an intermitant issue that is resolved with GroupWise 2014. If you run into this issue it takes less than a minute to resolve 😉 Other than that my GroupWise 8 systems on OES 11 would just run, and run, and run, and run.......
