With updates for the Toronto area GroupWise Admin Group
GroupWise Maintenance Routines
Full maintenance/repair routines to be done before conversions and at least once a yearAlways make sure you have a current complete backup before doing this.
To be sure that you are set up correctly to do so, see http://www.nwconnection.com/jul.98/pracnt78/index.html as many net admins aren't backing up their systems correctly even though they think they are.
No matter what, you should manually make a local copy of the Primary Domain database: wpdomain.db.
These instructions assume a basic understanding of the tools in question. If you have never seen the tools mentioned, then it is highly suggested that you consult with an appropriate expert or RTFM
Unless otherwise instructed: if there are error messages, stop and get them figured out. Call co-workers, your favorite integrator (Ainsworth :), and/or Novell if necessary.
For regular maintenance/repair (once a week to once a month)
These instructions were written by Andy Konecny, (andy_konecny @ ainsworth.com)
and he deserves all the credit!
