With the post office restore area set up on an OES or SLES server, the windows clients return a D069 error when trying to access that restore area.
NFS shares are not supported for a Post Office Restore Area. Please use NCP or CIFS shares to access the restore area correctly.
Because of a long-standing file lock issues with NFS, an NFS share cannot be used as a mount to mount a server file system where the GroupWise system is located to a workstation where ConsoleOne is running. In addition, an NFS mount cannot be used between Linux servers, for example when a POA needs access to a remote restore area or a remote document storage area.
A Samba share can be set up in order to access the Restore area space on the OES/Linux server. These directions will work for both GW8 and GW2012.
Additional information for setting up the share you can follow the information in Tid 7002221. The on-line documentation also has steps for setting up a Restore area. With GW8 and GW2012, go to
