Problem: When starting EMU 3.6.30+ and connecting to GroupWise domains , I am prompted with a windows login to attach to a Linux server running GroupWise. I have mapped a drive to the domain volume but cannot get past this dialog. Any thoughts/workarounds?
System Requirements: EMU needs to use the Administratrive APIs of the Novell Client and the GroupWise Admin APIs in the GroupWise client installed on the computer hosting EMU. In order for EMU to write changes to the GroupWise domains, those domain database files must be located on a NSS volume or NCP Mount Share (NetWare or Linux) or on the local drive of the Windows system hosting the EMU application. If the GroupWise domains are installed on non-NSS volumes, contact Omni technical staff for assistance.
GroupWise Requirement for Remote Management: GroupWise server/domains 7.0.2 or higher must be installed on the Linux system in order to permit remote management of the GroupWise system using ConcoleOne or EMU.
Recommended Novel Client Settings: There are also some changes recommended to be made to the Novell Client on the administrative workstation running ConsoleOne that is connecting to a Linux server. These changes are recommended in Novell TID 3777653:
Recommended settings for the Novell client:
Cause of Problem: The reason this occurs is because GroupWise domain pathing is different when installed on a Linux box that when installed on NetWare or Windows. EMU uses the Windows API calls to access the wpdomain.db path as conifigured in the UNC path in the properties of the domain. So, Windows applications, including ConsoleOne on Windows, call the UNC path and ConsoleOne on Linux calls the value set in System Preferences. Make sure that these two values are set correctly for the two different systems.
Resolution: To ensure remote management of GroupWise by either ConsoleOne or EMU from Windows:
Confirm the Domain paths are set to the UNC path for each Domain: Install and use ConsoleOne (with GroupWise snap-ins) on a Windows system that is authenticated to the eDirectory tree hosting the GroupWise system.
