Windows based GroupWise 7 client login becomes extremely slow after setting up a Restore Area on a SUSE Linux server.
Restore Area defined under the Restore Area Management in GroupWise System Operations.
Restore Area is located on the SUSE Linux 10 server.
Windows based GroupWise 7 Clients do not have access to the SUSE Linux server.
If the Restore Area is removed, the GroupWise Client login speed returns to normal.

NOTE:The same slowness of the Windows GroupWise client is observed when the restore area is located on a NetWare server and the end user does not have login access to that server.


This has been fixed in Novell GroupWise 7 Support Pack 3.
