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.

We are planning on upgrading a mirrored NW 5.0 SP6a GW 5.5 server to a

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

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.

We will be upgrading our GroupWise 6.0.2 soon to 6.5. I would like to =
install 6.5 with support pack 1 at once. I am assuming that the 6.5 CD =
software can be overwritten by the support pack software and this will =
work. Is this correct?

If you want to cover all your bases, I'd suggest getting a copy of the

The guide covers many of the potential gotchas/problems you may run in

One quick question: to upgrade from GW 6.0 to GW 6.5, do I need to

I read it in the documentation but it does not reference what version

Yep, primary domain first.

We are going to upgrade from 6.5.5 to 6.5.6 to hopefully solve the problem
with sending mail to yahoo. My question is do I have to upgrade
everything? On one server we have the MTA, GWIA, POA for our main
postoffice and webaccess. On the second server we have 4 other
postoffice's for our student email. Can I just upgrade the main server
with the MTA, GWIA, POA and webaccess and leave the other server alone at
6.5.5? If so will any reconfiguration be neccessary on the old post

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 have new hardware upon which I want to run NW 6.5, and GW 7.
I found the Cool Solutions Article titled "Consultants Corner: Tips for
Upgrading to GroupWise 7"
I am only dealing with a single post office, GWIA and Webaccess.
Looking for any Advice, gotcha's, document's I can be pointed to, etc.
I have no room on the current 6.0 server any more, so I am hoping any

I recently attempted to update from GW 6.5.4 to GW 6.5.6. I ran the
service pack and followed direction very closely, and once I finished
updating the Primary Domain and the Post Office, I check marked to update
the startup files and to launch the MTA and PO. When they launched after
my update they were running at 6.5.6, but when I reset the server they
went back to running at 6.5.4. I also need to update the GWIA and the
WebAccess Agent. Do I have to do those separately? This is really the
first time that I have ever patched a GW System. Are there more detailed

1. Are these instructions the received opinion on how to upgrade from

2. Will I need to rebuild all my Perl Modules after upgrading?
3. Regarding the tests that Ray mentions failing, what are the
implications of pragma/warnings, db-btree, db-recno and posix not

What is the fastest way (no problem way!) to upgrade whole GW 6.5.6 system

Is necessary to upgrade ALL components to 7.0 first or is the way to go

I hope there is no need to download all 7.0 CDs...
Any solutions are appreciated.
Go directly to 7.0.1. You do need the 7.0 CDs though - you need a copy of
the DC files. Not included with support pack
