unable to delete POA and PO

hi experts,

Created a new DO and PO. Then i deleted the PO's NDS object first but was unable to delete POA and PO under "Groupwise System". Checked under DO "System Maintenance' but the option to release "release secondary" and all other options were greyed out. please help.

system setup:
Novell Netware 5.5
Groupwise 6.5

Does the PO and POA still show in the GroupWise system section of ConsoleOne1?

If so, click back on the OU where the PO/POA objects were in the NDS section of C1 and then click Tools > GroupWise Utilities > GW-eDir > Graft GroupWise objects and re-graft the PO/POA back into eDirectory.

You need to delete the POA then the PO before you try to delete the Domain (DO) and its MTA object if that is what you're trying to do.  The DO owns the PO and its objects.  You won't use the System Maintenance to delete anything.

Have you launched the POA agent?  You may need to have it running in order to have it communicate that the GW and eDir objects have been deleted in the GW system.  Once the POA object is deleted in C1, you can then delete the PO.

... ive followed steps above and but received error as shown (attached image). Im login as "admin" but how do i verify that "admin" has permission to objects?

The easiest is to right click on the server object and choose Trustees of this Object.  This is the object that admin should have S object rights and in all likelihood S all attribute rights.  You can also right click on either the domain or the PO object and use the same command.  You may need to click the Effective Rights button to see what you've really got as far as rights to the objects.

You should also check the OU that you're trying to graft into and lastly, check the trustees to the root of the tree and see if Admin is listed.  Have you ever used eDirectory Inherited Rights Filters (IRFs)?  If so look for those blocking Admin rights on the objects I've mentioned.
