Groupwise 8 schema extention dosn't work because of the existence of an "homePhone" attribute in "Organizational Person" class which is not supposed to be there.


We have to use the schema role in iManager, select "Class Information" scroll to "Organizational Person" select view. 

Then in the class information page, you have to select the "Update optional attribute"

This link will open a new window with coloum "Available optional Attributes" and  "optional attributes" you can move "homePhone" attribute from being in the "optional attributes" list move them back to "Available optional Attributes".

This will remove the attribute and then you can proceed with GroupWise schema upgrade.....
