Additional Information:
The CPU encountered a problem executing code in SERVER.NLM. The problem may be in that module or in data passed to that module by a process owned by GWPOA.NLM.


The software distribution directory was on another server, but the /user /pass switches in the *.poa configuration file were commented out. GroupWise will check the software distribution directory, and attempt to connect to the remote server. If the user and password are not specified, this can abend the server.

Need to specify a /user /pass switch in the configuration file.

section of *.poa configuration file to change:
; Remote Connection(s).
; The user id and password for remote file server(s).
