Assigning Admin Rights to Volume

Hello,

I installed a Netware 6.5 system under vmware. I created a default admin account called Oper1. I also created an additional volume called DATA and now I have a SYS and DATA volume. My next task was to install GroupWise 7.04 onto this system. So, I setup a Windows 7 computer and began to install GroupWise Server 7.04. Each time I tell GroupWise to write to my Data share or my SYS volume I get an Access Denied message. Why is that? How can I ensure my admin user, which is Oper1, has access to all my volumes and will not be denied access? This should have been enabled by default, so I am very curious what the problem is.

By the way, I looked at ConsoleOne and it appears that Oper1 has access to all of the volumes.

Thanks in advance,
John

Is this a groupwise install problem, i.e. does it only occur when installing Groupwise, or can't you write to the volumes at all?

Yes, it seems to be a Groupwise install problem. I can manually create folders on the drive. But, perhaps something else is going on too. Even if I install into the folders I create first, Groupwise will not start after the install. I did not have this problem with Groupwise 8 or 2012, which are installed on different netware servers.

Are you sure you only need rights on the volumes. It seems to me you should have Supervisor Access to eDirectory as well. Can you verify that?

No, and how do you want me to certify that? I am surprised I am being asked for rights at all. I installed Netware fresh like I always have, and I am using the Admin account to install GroupWise. Perhaps, like you said, this is a GroupWise 7.04 install problem and not a rights issue at all.
