Setting the mode to user should be: ./gwadminutil installcfg -m user -u gwinstall -p mypass


Page 45 – add the following section.

Verify the location of the domain in ConsoleOne

If the path to your domain in the wpdomain.db is not generally the same as the details in the startup file, you may run into issues during the upgrade process, and the Administration Service may fail to initialize after the upgrade.  Before you proceed with the upgrade, check the path in ConsoleOne on the server where GroupWise is running, and verify that the path shown is the same as the startup file.  Since this is an in-place upgrade, you may wonder how you could possibly have the wrong path.  It will be more likely on Windows than on Linux, but here are some possibilities:

  • On Linux, your domain may be in a location such as /grpwise/domain, but you have created a mount point to facilitate ConsoleOne administration from both Linux and Windows.  In that case, the path in ConsoleOne when viewed from Linux may look like /mnt/server/grpwise/domain.  Make sure that the path in the domain directory is the same as the path in the startup file.
  • On Windows, you may have an issue if you frequently run ConsoleOne from a workstation and you have placed a mapped location from your workstation in Consoleone.  For example g:\domain.  On the Windows server, this might instead be d:\domain.  Verify that the location in ConsoleOne is the same as the location in the startup file on the Windows server.
