Upgrade Netware6.5.6 to 6.5.7 with GroupWise 6.5
Is there any problems that I need to know about before I apply the sp7
patch to this GroupWise server. At the present this GW server is a stand
alone server, and after a week it unloads tomcat4 which shuts down
webacc module and the users can not connect with Webacc. I have worked
on this problem for a while now, upgraded java and several others
things. I hope there won't be any problems with this patch and sp7.

Last night around 9pm we upgraded our Netware SBS 6.5sp4a server from
GroupWise 6.5.5 to GroupWise 6.5.6.
This morning at about 10:15am (the server starts experiencing heavy
user load around 6am) the server locked hard and had to be manually
powered off and restarted... here's the abend.
The only things I've changed between the 6.5.5 config and 6.5.6 are:
* I chose the installation option to run the POA and MTA in protected
* I enabled two blacklist sites in the POA's Access List
* I enabled Mailbox Protection in the POA
* I enabled sender validation / verif...Upgrade 6.0 to 6.5 with Groupwise 6.5
Any issues with upgrading a Netware 6.0 latest sp server to Netware 6.5
sp4 with Groupwise 6.5 latest service pack on it?

Should be fine -- SBS 6.5 and 6.6 shipped with 6.5 SP1b and then SP3
and GroupWise 6.5.4.
One thing though, why SP4 on the NW 6.5 server? I'd go with SP5 plus
the post SP5 update package.

I am testing this before rolling it out to users--in the item lists, is
there a reason that the year no longer displays in the date column (We are
upgrading from SP2 and it is fine there)? It now reads mm/dd and the time
instead of mm/dd/yy and the time. This is also true of the header when you
open an item. It is particulalry a problem when looking at document
references. This is not unique to me, is it?
Found it--in the Options for date and Time--now, is it possible that the SP5
update changed the settings?

Not really. Before you upgrade rebuilt the post offices and domains or
do at least a validate of the databases.

...Upgrade from 6.5.3 to 6.5.6
I have a GW 6.5.3 system running on a SUSE 9 server. I am moving to a
new server and I want to also upgrade GW to 6.5.6 at the same time.
I'm not sure how to go about doing that. My thought was to build the
server, install NDS, install GW admin, graft my data, and install the
agents using my 6.5.3 SDD. Then apply the patch after that. Does anyone
have any advice on this?
* brownl573 ,
no need to install the 6.5.3 agents first, just install the 6.5.6 stuff directly. Else it sounds fine.

...upgrading from 6.5.1 to 6.5.6
I ran the patch upgrade for gw 6.5 to get us to sp6. Ran the update and
rebooted. all seem to upgrade except the gwia component. It was soft
abending the server. I tried re installing the gwia from the new SDD
directory and it still did not work. Is there any problems with going
from 6.5.1 to 6.5.6 directly?

When I upgraded to 6.5.4 from 6.5.3 I was told I could just copy out the
newer files instead of going through the setup. Is this possible for 6.5.5
and what files would I need to copy over and to where?
Thanks in advance
Copy them to the SDD (software distribution directory).
Once there you can install the agents with the /copyonly switch.

I'm wondering if I can upgrade my whole backend (MTA & POA's) and then
gradually (pick and choose) which clients I want to switch over to the
new 6.5 client. Can I do this ? Caledonia's "GW 6.5 Upgrade Guide"
says yes, but to watch out for 1) the renamed Sent Items folder and 2)

After upgrading from 6.5 to 6.5.5, we've noticed that when your Notify

the message. It works if the GroupWise client is already opened, but
doesn't if it's not. Also, it doesn't delete, if you click delete. Any
help would be greatly appreciated.

I have upgraded to NW65 with SP5 from NW5.1 and my server seems to run
fine since the upgrade.
My WEB server was Novonyx which does not work anymore since apache has
taken it's place. It will not come up, giving an error that LDAP is not
loaded. Groupwise agents MTA, POA and GWIA are operating fine. If I load
NLDAP manually I still get the same error. I have looked in the config

location for my files to load.
How can I get the web server operational again?
