Novell GroupWise 8 Post Office
Novell GroupWise 7.x Client
Sending an email from a GroupWise 7.x client connected to a 8.x Post Office can result in an error "Error "File <file name> store not a view description file".
This situation can happen if a GroupWise 8.x Post Office is new and has not gone through an upgrade process from a previous version. It is likely to show this behavior if the default language is English.
In GroupWise 8.x, the English view files are named differently than they were in GroupWise 7.x. The GroupWise 7.x client still requests these files when connected to the Post Office.
The requested files will exist in the <post office dir>/ofviews directory if the Post Office was upgraded from the previous version.
If the Post Office was not upgraded from a previous version, please do the following.
1. From a GroupWise 7.x software distribution directory, copy the contents of the <SDD>/CLIENT/WINDOWS/OFVIEWS directory to the OFVIEWS directory below the Post Office.
2. From a GroupWise 8.x software distribution directory, copy the contents of the <SDD>/CLIENT/WINDOWS/OFVIEWS directory to the OFVIEWS directory below the Post Office.
The first step will copy in the view files needed for the 7.x client. The second step will update those filles needed for all clients to function properly.
