Re: delete uid.run each time when start/stop grpwise daemon

Hello there,

I have the same issue now.
I have set up a completely new server to test GW2012 with SLES11SP2 x64. Installed eDirectory and then installed GW2012. The agents are running quite well and are working fine, but if I restart the server, the agents fail to start and if I want to start them manually the startup process terminates with "Error: Running the agent with conflicting effective user".

The uid.run contains root and I am trying to start the agents as root. After removing the uid.run files of the agents the startup process is working fine.

Is there any known workarround or fix for this issue?

Thanks for any solutions.

Hi Alex

This is a known issue: Support | Unable to load GroupWise agents on SLES 11 SP2

Open an SR with Novell and see if they can provide a patch for you.

Cheers,

Re: delete uid.run each time when start/stop grpwise daemon

To whom is too lazy - just modify /etc/init.d/grpwise adding at the top as follows:

#!/bin/bash
rmuid1="/opt/novell/groupwise/your_postoffice/uid.run"
rmuid1="/opt/novell/groupwise/your_domain/uid.run"
rmuid1="/opt/novell/groupwise/your_domain/wpagte/gwia/uid.run"
[ -e $rmuid1 ] && rm $rmuid1
[ -e $rmuid2 ] && rm $rmuid2
[ -e $rmuid3 ] && rm $rmuid3

that works for me lac

Thank You,
I made a missprint in the names of vars above - should be rmuid1, rmuid2, rmuid3 instead of 3 times rmuid1.
