Adding user to a Groupwise 6.x post office.

Scenerio 2:  Post office object in eDirectory was deleted due to a server crash.  Post office had not yet been regrafted into the tree, so it didn't exist in eDirectory.


Made sure the old post office object was deleted and the obits cleaned up. The recreated the post office object and everything worked fine.

To recreate the post office object:

Use ConsoleOne:
Highlight the post office in the GroupWise section of the view and right click.
Choose GroupWise Utilities
Choose to Graft GroupWise Object
Choose to Domains, Post Offices and Gateways
Ensure the locations for the eDirectory objects are correct as you choose next through the screens.

After running through the graft process, the post office object is back in the correct location in eDirectory.

Now users can be re-associated without getting the -613 error

Additional Information

If you do not let the obituaries clean up once you delete and object, you risk errors when trying to recreate or use the object since the entry may still be requested. Once the entry is requested, and does not exist as a present object, you can get the 613 error.
