SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15
GroupWise Mobility Service 18


When I install the DSAPP utility that works with GroupWise Moblity 18, and I try to start it I get an error and it will not
start on SLES15 SP1.


Go to Yast, Software Managment, search for "python2-rpm".  When the Yast install of this library completes, you now should be able to run /opt/novell/datasync/tools/dsapp/dsapp.sh without an error.


The DSAPP utility , on SLES15 SP1, did not have access to a needed python library.  This library s not installed by
default on this service patch level of SLES15.

Additional Information

The error received is :
