This is just a technical note, not a support request.

I ran into a weird problem with one of my NetWare 6.5 SP8 GroupWise 8 SP1 clients.

When trying to get properties of any user with a GroupWise mailbox association in ConsoleOne 1.3.6h I observed a couple seconds hourglass, and no properties were accessible. Users with no GroupWise association were perfectly manageable.

Troubleshooting showed that the problem was related to a group of 4 files located in SYS:/public/mgmt/ConsoleOne/1.2/ConsoleOneExt directory:
-- grouc8a2.rra 253105 01/26/2009 19:44
-- gwadc95e.rra 527564 01/26/2009 19:44
-- gwadca19.rra 365992 01/26/2009 19:44
-- gwadca59.rra 168699 01/26/2009 19:44

Removal of the 4 files restored ConsoleOne functionality.

Attempts to restore the files one by one caused selective ConsoleOne GroupWise related functionality to fail. For example, adding groupc8a2.rra and gwadc95e.rra caused User Properties / Groupwise / View Client Options / <Any Button> become unresponsive.

Structurally these are JAR files with the following Meta Information:

Manifest-Version: 1.0
Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.5.4
Created-By: 1.5.0_07-b03 (Sun Microsystems Inc.)

Hopefully this could help some puzzled administrators and maybe Novell if they are still doing any debugging for NetWare.
