Re: SV: GroupWise backup
Its as Ted said in a different thread OFM ... with earlier versions we have
had some problems but, fairly stable on the latest and greatest. Also our
occupancy in the system is rather unwieldly, the post offices are very large
(huge). But we have a 30 version, retain only two management class.
Additionally we archive the post offices once a month (not an email missed I
guess is the thinking). But we at least export the archives ... Would love to
hear of what others are doing. I'll have to ask the netware guy about

First of all... Kevin - have you ever restored anything???? You will most
likely fail.... you can't backup Post Offices online! There is a reason to the
fact, that Novell implemented GWTSA.NLM.
It's possible to backup the domain... correct! Solution stated by Novell is to
use the DBBACKUP.EXE - only drawback on this, is the workstation needed to use
There is a OFM from StBernard... Novell won't recommend it (we have some
problem for the time being), and StBernard and Novell can't seem to agree to
which files is neccessary to back up... I'll keep you posted!
In fact.... IBM/Tivoli could make a whole lot of campers happy if the pulled
their thumbs out of their behind and implemented support for GWTSA.NLM!!!

Emne: Re: GroupWise backup
You don't have to shut down GroupWise to back it up. We back up about 15
GroupWise servers, and you don't have to do anything to back up user databases,
POs. Domains, or anything.

I have a potential customer with Novell GroupWise.
Is there TDP for GroupWise (I guess there isn't; I couldn't find it)
Only solution that I can think of is by using Presched and Postsched commands
to stop and start GroupWise agents.
Is there any other way to backup GroupWise (hot-online backup); I don't like
the idea of shutting down e-mail system in the middle of the night, and than
pray that after postsched command it will wake up again.
