We are currently running Groupwise 6.5 on a netware 6.0 server. I have not had to create new user mailboxes in quite some time. We have also had an issue with backups over the last 6 weeks. I attempted to create a new mailbox, and could not add or delete new users. All other email functionality is working. It appears that my administrative privileges are corrupted. This has been an unstable system for a while, the patches are not updated and we are constantly experiencing spam and space disk issues.

My question is how could this issue have occurred-none of the administrators (2 accounts that were set up explicitly) removed the administrator rights. What trouble shooting steps can I take, How can I regain administrator privileges?
