POA log file shows updates happening from incorrect UserIDs
Wrong UserIDs displayed in POA log file for updates


GroupWise stores the creator's name in the Domain Database and Post Office Database and there are cases when even though the modification is not made by the creator, the entries in the POA logs makes it look like the creator is modifying the user database. The POA log file even shows entries related to the creator even when the creator no longer exists in eDirectory. This does not indicate any problem and is working as designed.
