Complex messages contain other messages. For example forwarded or reply messages that include the original message.
A simple message and all of its parts are stored in a single message database
A complex message contains other messages. A complex message consists of a "parent or owning" message. The attached message can be considered a sub-message or child message. Each attached child message may refer to a different message database.
A D107 error is reported when one or more of these message parts is missing and is no longer contained in the database.
Server power failures,
Server hardware problems, nics, hard drives, memory etc.
Backup software attempting to backup open databases, virus scanners running against open databases,
Userâs workstations accessing their mail via direct access â mapped drive (not client/server)
Any interruption of a database transaction can cause corruption.
If a message exists in a user database that references an attachment that has been lost or deleted, whenever a user attempts to follow the attached messages a D107 error will result.
Often these missing records go unnoticed until the user attempts to open the missing message or the user is moved to another post office, runs Hit the Road or the Auto-Archive process runs.
A GWCheck contents check on the user database will clean up many potential D107 errors.
If GWCheck were to follow each attached message which in turn may have one or more attached messages nested several layers deep, GWCheck would become so slow as to become unusable. By the time GWCheck were to follow each attached message and each sub-attached message etc, more data would be written to the GroupWise datastore and before GWCheck could finish, the results would already be out of date.
