Hello,

Upgraded to 8.0.1 hp1 about a month ago, and since doing so have had to reboot the server twice (about every 2 weeks) to restore mta - poa communications.

Small GroupWise system, all components (poa, mta, gwia and webacc) on the same physical server, running NetWare 6.5 sp8... no problem before upgrade.

Basically, looking at the mta and poa logs you can see that they simply can't speak with one another. As I said, things run fine for a couple of weeks, then over the course of a day the system will begin to fail and eventually need a reboot (this leads me to believe this is NOT a simple configuration issue).

Here are the logs for both the poa and mta before my last reboot:

My best guess at this point is to perform a top down rebuild of the databases to correct the issue.... has anyone experienced a similar issue?


Thanks,
