Downgrading from 2014 WebAccess to 2012 WebAccess causes web page to not render
Problem stepping back from GroupWise WebAccess 2014


  1. On the server navigate to this location /usr/share/tomcat6/lib  (On OES the location will be /var/opt/novell/tomcat6)
  2. Move all files in this location that contain the word webservices to a different location (ie. /tmp)
  3. Stop the tomcat6 service with rctomcat6 stop (On OES the process to stop is rcnovell-tomcat6 stop)
  4. Restart the apache2 service with rcapache2 restart  
  5. Start the tomcat6 service with rctomcat6 start (On OES the process to start is rcnovell-tomcat6 start)
