When installing the Calendar Publisher host, an error is returned on the Administration Console: LDAP Server Information screen if the server address is a 10.x.x.x based address.  The error is "Invalid LDAP IP Address or port".  The error is also returned if the DNS name is used.


This has been reported to engineering.
Workaround Steps:

1. Run the Calendar Publisher install normally but substitute a "bogus" ldap ip to get past that screen ( seems to work well)

2. Edit the file sys:\novell\groupwise\calhost\calhost.cfg in notepad and change the line that says, "Admin.Ldap.ip=" to point to the real LDAP server:port.

3. Save this file and then load Tomcat.
