Novell GroupWise 6.5
To resolve this situation, clear or change the timestamps on the databases to be more than 7 days. This can be done from ConsoleOne, on the server, or from the workstation. Run the GWCheck again after the timestamp is changed and the expire/reduce will succeed.
Methods for timestamping databases:
To apply a backup timestamp in ConsoleOne, highlight the Post Office object of the Post Office that was restored, then click Tools | GroupWise Utilities | Backup/Restore Mailbox, and choose Backup, and enter a date and time older than 7 days.
Use the GWTMSTMP.NLM, "load gwtmstmp /p <path to post office>
The /c switch will clear the timestamp on the databases.
The /s switch can also be used to set a timestamp. Use the /help switch to display all the options. The results are written to the console.log file.
The GWTMSTMP executable (gwtmstmp) is installed into the bin and lib subdirectories of /opt/novell/groupwise/agents along with the GroupWise agents (POA and MTA). The syntax to clear the timestamp is "./gwtmstp -p <path to post office>
The GWTMSTMP program file (gwtmstmp.exe) is installed into the same directory where the GroupWise agents (POA and MTA) are installed. Run the command with the /c switch; IE "gwtmstmp.exe /p <path to post office>
