Novell GroupWise 8 Support Pack 1


Pressing F7 on the GWPOA will show a message that QuickFinder is running and if this should be unloaded, but after replying with Yes, POA is not unloaded and hangs forever.

When performing an "unload gwpoa" on the command prompt of the server will never unload the Post Office.

QuickFinder Indexing is running on the PostOffice.

GWDCA is active and used.


Will not be fixed as their is no more support for NetWare and this problem is only happening on NetWare.

Additional Information

The only workaround on this moment is to disable GWDCA. This can be done by adding the option /nodca in the startup file of the POA.
