Groupwise 6.5 - Logging in to post office
Posted on 2003-11-07
I've been asked to build a test Netware/Groupwise system, with damn all information on how to do this (typical). I've read the manual, and followed through the installation. I now have the Post Office Agent and Mail Transport Agent running on my server. On the client, I have installed GroupWise 6.5, but whenever I double click on the icon on the desktop, it won't connect correctly.
When I first did this, trying to log into the account 'admin' it told be that the password was incorrect. This happened repeatedly, so I reset the 'admin' user's password. Still didn't work. I reset the 'admin' user's Groupwise password. Again, this didn't work.
So, instead I created a new user, 'Andy', which is identical to 'admin' in everything I can see. It resides in the same context, and it is visible as part of the same Post Office in ConsoleOne.
When I try to log in using this user, I am told that 'Andy' does not exist. As mentioned above, it appears to be identical to 'admin', so I am at a loss. It is in the same post office, so how can 'Andy' not exist? Why can I not open Groupwise successfully.
Like I say, the POA does appear to be running - it's log shows the failed login attempts.
Any help would be greatly appreciated (hence all the points)
