Hi,

Recently I crashed my BM 3.8 server runing over NW 6.5 SP2.
I decided to start over with a new hardware.
I installed NW 6.5 overlayed with SP3 without any problem.
Re-installation of GroupWise 6.5.4 GWIA and WEBACCESS was succesfull too.
But, when I try to install BM 3.8, the GUI displays a dialog box showing a
fatal error : "tree not initialized yet".
Here are a few lines taken from the SYS:\NI\DATA\NI.LOG:

.....

I look through the knowledge base of Novell but found no TID related.

Please help !
