Novell GroupWise 8
After you installed any agent (MTA / POA / GWIA / WebAccess) you want to start it but:
1. rcgrpwise start <agent> fails to load
2. ./<agent_binary> @../share/<agent_config_file> crashes with a seg fault error
Any other earlier installed agents starts fine.
These failures are caused by a mistake made during manual editing gwha.conf file. You will need to review all agent statements prior newly installed and check for any typos errors. Error like one bellow:
will cause problems due to missing the "=" character in the command line section. When you start any agent, the code parser goes over a content of the gwha.conf file and this typos error cause passing wrong values that later leads into a crash.
