GWAVA 4.51 and newer Running on SLES 9


I have updated GWAVA from 4.5 build 125 to 4.51 latest build. After restarting GWAVA, if I run 'rcgwavaman status'  several modules are not running.


Currently, GWAVA 4.51 is not compatible with SLES 9. We are working on a solution to resolve this.. We don't have an ETA on when/if we will have a solution yet.

It is recommended to either update to a newer version of Linux if you can, or switch over to the GWAVA Appliance (Link to what the GWAVA Appliance is). If you are not able to do either of those, you can back rev GWAVA to your previous version (before the upgrade). To do this, do the following:

1) From a server prompt, shut GWAVA down: rcgwavaman stop
2) Rename the GWAVA files back, so that you are using ones from before the update. All of the files that were updated from the previous build were renamed with a .old extension. Files are located in /opt/beginfinite/gwava/assets/bin.
a) Rename gwavaupd to, then rename gwavaupd.old to gwavaupd
b) Rename gwavaman to, then rename gwavaman.old to gwavaman
c) Rename gwvsmtp to, then rename gwvsmtp.old to gwvsmtp
d) Rename gwvgwia to, then rename gwvgwia.old to gwvgwia
e) Rename qms2 to, then rename qms2.old to qms2
f) Rename gwvrelay to, then rename gwvrelay.old to gwvrelay
g) Rename gwavapoa to, then rename gwavapoa.old to gwavapoa
h) Rename gwava to, then rename gwava.old to gwava
i) Rename to, then rename to
j) Rename autoblkr to, then rename autoblkr.old to autoblkr
k) Rename asengine to, then rename asengine.old to asengine

Note: You can ignore any of the .nlm files, as they are for Netware only.
3) Replace your gwavaman.db with one from before the update.
a) Rename /opt/beginfinite/gwava/config/gwavaman.db to
b) In /opt/beginfinite/gwava/config/backup. Extract the gwavaman.db from a zip file that is from before the update. Place it in /opt/beginfinite/gwava/config.
4) Start GWAVA back up: rcgwavaman start

GWAVA should now load and run successfully, using the previous build.
