One of my POs abended earlier this morning. It had been running GW 8.0.1HP1 with no problem since adding the switch /dcafilter-pdf to the poa file. I updated it to the release version of GW8 sp2 at the start of this week, ran ok for 4 days. It's running on NetWare 6.5 sp8.

With GW8 sp2 I'm wondering if I still need the /dcafilter instruction (no reference to the pdf-specific issue having been resolved in sp2. Or is the general experience that for the sake of stability it's better to use /nodca on all GW8 POs on NetWare?

I've attached the core.dmp file from root of SYS, below is the first part of abend.log from c:\nwserver

Any suggestions that help stabilise the PO will be appreciated, as I've got 5 others to update soon too.

Thanks

Ian
