The minimum snapin date cannot be cleared from the Tools / GroupWise System Operations / System Preferences.. Admin Lockout Settings tab in ConsoleOne. Once you check off "Lock Out Older GroupWise Administration Snapins, the current date is filled in under the Minimum Snapin Release Date field. This field cannot be edited directly, but can only be changed by clicking on the calendar picker icon. The calendar picker allows the date to be set but not cleared despite the fact that the Help text for that page says that it is not required.


This is a known issue which will not be fixed in ConsoleOne. The workaround is to set the date to January 1, 1970 in the  date picker; this will have the same effect as clearing the date.
