Its a little bit dangerous what they do but it works. Because of they want to go into the restored po with the GroupWise Client with direct file access they need to have a wphost.db in this restored po that has the direct access set to allowed.
 
In Item 2 they set it to client server and direct and security to low.

In Item 3 you have to rebuild the po to get a wphost.db
- in console one in groupwise view click on the po object the user is in.
- right click GroupWise utilities -> System Maintenance
- Click on rebuild database
- Click on run, change the path to database to a local file folder!!!
- Click ok

Now you have a wphost.db which let you login to the po with direct access

Do not forget 4. If you do not you let you postoffice in a unsecure state.

Go on whith the TID

Hope that helps.

hi Thomas,

Any implications on the live PO once i have rebuilt the PO (ie change the path to database to a local file folder and after that step 4 is done properly)....

Hi Kenny,

there will be ne problems on the live po, if you do a rebuild to a local path.
But do not copy this wphost.db over the live po. Put this file away so you will not do it accidently later.
You could do again a rebuilt after step 4 to a local folde get a current backup of the wphost.db.
