Troubleshooting steps:
  1. Edit /opt/novell/groupwise/agents/share/gwdva.dva or sharedVolume/groupwise/agents/share/gwdva.dva if WebAccess Agent is on cluster.
  2. Uncomment out the /hold switch.
  3. Save the file.
  4. Shut down the WebAccess Agent by typing "rcgrpwise stop WEBAC80A".
  5. Start the WebAccess Agent by typing "rcgrpwise start WEBAC80A".
  6. Once the gwdva crashes, it should quarantine the files that caused the crash in /opt/novell/groupwise/agents/bin/gwdva.dir/hold
    These files can be used by Novell Technical Support to troubleshoot the gwdva crashing issue.
