we have upgraded to GW8 on a netware 6.5 sp8 server. Groupwise 7 was running fine, but Gw8 has caused the server to run at 100% utlization.

So far the steps taken are

1) Load the nw5-idle.nlm
2) Change the config to remove indexing
3) Rebuild an entire new server with VMware and build a new post office, moved only a couple of users over and straight away server hits 100%.
4) Loaded GW8 Hot patch 1
5) Screamed abuse at the server

Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing this issue, because we are currently extremely disapointed with the performance on netware.

If you unload the POA the server goes down to 5% utilization.
