Novell GroupWise 2014 R2


After installing GroupWise 2014 R2, no gwdva.dva startup file gets created as referenced in the current documentation , it should be in the /opt/novell/groupwise/agents/share/ directory 


When creating a new GroupWise System, if you create a new post office AND a DVA, a post_office_name.dva is created.  If you don't select "DVA" during the creation, then a gwdva.dva file is NOT created in the /opt/novell/groupwise/agents/share directory.

To add a DVA to the gwha.conf and create a gwdva.dva file in the /opt/novell/groupwise/agents/share/ directory, run:

/opt/novell/groupwise/admin/gwadminutil services -i -dva
Note:  For the above command, before you run it, make sure you don't have an existing reference to a DVA in the gwha.conf file located in /etc/opt/novell/groupwise/ directory.
