Environment

Novell GroupWise 7
Novell GroupWise 32 bit Client
Novell GroupWise Messenger 2.0

Situation

This error appears on the Messenger agent console. The Host has been created under the Host Container however this error still appears. It shows up when hovering over users in the address book of the GroupWise client.

Resolution

This happens when the Host object hasn't been added to the Messenger Service object. This is done by following these steps:
  1. Open ConsoleOne
  2. Right click on the Messenger Service object and select Properties
  3. This opens to the Novell Messenger tab General properties. At the bottom of the page is the section entitled Host List.
  4. Click on Add
  5. Browse to the Host that has been created under the Host Container
  6. Click Apply
Restart the Messenger agent
This does not cause any loss of functionality.  This is currently working as designed
