We are running Groupwise 8 SP2 on a Novell SUSE Linux OES. We created a restore volume to do e-mail recoveries and succesfully copied the post office files necessary to conduct recovery.

From a GW client we can access Restore PO but when we attempt to restore an e-mail we get the following error:

Groupwise Error (D069) - You Have Attempted to Open an Incompatible Backuip Database. You Must Either Change Connection Modes or Open A different Backup Database.

I have exahausted all other recommendations across this forum back when I tried May but am revisiting the issue. We have verified the user has every read/write access to the live PO and to the file structure in both the restore and live DB. What am I missing?

Thanks all.
