Hi.

I am running GW8 HP1 (build number 85855) on a Netware 6.5 SP8 server in a test environment and am trying to install SP1. I chose to install the GWIA at the same time as the rest of the agents and when I get to the Internet Agent Name page and enter valid information for username, password and context, I get the following error:

"Could not authenticate to the address specified. Verify the username, context and password are valid."

The Details button shows the following:

com.novell.gw.api.directory.edir.EdirAuthenticatio nException: (Error -601) The object name entered could not be found in the context specified. Refer to Help for all listings of possible causes and solutions.

As a test I also downloaded HP2 and it works fine. I used an ip address for the edirectory server.

Does anyone know what this means?

Thanks
