When you use Group Wise Web Access, items are archived or deleted according to the default settings provided by your Group Wise administrator in the Group Wise Admin console or according to settings you provide in the Group Wise Windows client.
Saturday I received a frantic call from the network administrator of a client.
Their Groupwise 7.0.2 system that runs on a Netware 6.5.7 server had suddenly become inaccessible from both the Internet and local network for Webaccess clients.
Even with the simplest of upgrades planning is critical for success.
This article is based on upgrading to the forthcoming Group Wise 2014 R2 release.
Of course, even those of us who have done hundreds of upgrades run into issues occasionally.
Group Wise 2014 introduced an entirely new “wizard” for upgrading.
Note: GW Mailbox requires a subscription GW Mailbox is a Group Wise email and calendar app for the i Phone and i Pad.
With this app you get a much better interface than Novell delivers by default through Group Wise Web Access.
She had rebooted the server several times, confirmed Webaccess was loading, verified Webaccess was inaccessible from both the standard URL and IP based URL, i.e.
https://mail.domain.com/gw/webacc and https://10.0.0.6/gw/webacc. She also verified there was nothing odd logged in the Webaccess log files.
Users who used the full Groupwise client reported no issues.
