Can you install GroupWise 14 or 18 to a Windows Server drive other than the C drive, like a shared drive , like a SAN drive ?


On the windows platform, you can only install GroupWise to a physically connected drive, example, if you only Have 1 SATA drive in your Windows server, that would be the C: drive.  If you then added a second SATA drive, that would be either the D: or E: drive on your server.  In this situation where you added a 2nd Drive, you could install to either the D: or E: drive.

However , let's say you create a Windows shared drive, like maybe and that represents a disk drive on a remote server, which let's say that is or is not on a SAN.  This is not supported as this is not a physical drive on the server.  The install might or migh not complete but the GroupWise Admin Service would not load or function properly.
