Hello,

We are currently running GroupWise 2014 R2 on SLES 11, SP3 on VMware environment (ESXi 6.0 U2). Details are as follows,

OS:
Novell Open Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64)
VERSION = 11.2
PATCHLEVEL = 2
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 (x86_64)
VERSION = 11
PATCHLEVEL = 3

eDirectory:
Binary Version: 20802.08
Product Version: eDirectory for Linux x86_64 v8.8 SP8 [DS]

GroupWise build:
groupwise-calhost-webapp-14.2.2-128920
groupwise-server-14.2.2-128920
groupwise-gwha-14.2.2-128920
groupwise-webaccess-webapp-14.2.2-128920

We have single domain/po with all services running on single server.

While trying to upgrade to SLES 11, SP4, we are facing issue with eDirectory configuration. As noted the eDirectory was configured on remote server, years back while upgrading from GroupWise7 to GroupWise2014, which in not available in the network at present.
When we try to configure eDirectory through "Yast > Open Enterprise Server > OES Install and Configuration", it does not allow to enter the local IP Address of the server. (eDirectory is currently running on local server but in the existing configuration page, it displays IP of other server which is not available in the network now.) During the configuration, it does validate the local server IP Address but when i click the Next tab, it gives error "The replica server address must be a remote (non-local) address."

I do not have much hands-on knowledge on how to reconfigure eDirectory with the local server setttings in this scenerio. Can someone guide on how can this be achieved.

Thanks in advance.
K
