Default April 2007 GroupWise Upgrade

April 2007 GroupWise Upgrade

Novell has recently released a Support Pack upgrade to GroupWise 7. GroupWise 7 Support Pack 2 contains various performance and stability enhancements and all users are encouraged to update their GroupWise clients to this latest release. Since this is only a Support Pack update and not a new version of GroupWise, there are no changes in functionality or appearance from the GroupWise client you are currently using.

Computing and Network Services will also be updating the back end components of GroupWise to this release. Because of the design of our GroupWise system, the amount of downtime users will experience for these server upgrades is negligible. We have detailed a schedule of the downtime on this page.

How do I update my GroupWise Client to the latest version?

You do not need to wait until CNS has updated the GroupWise server components before you update the GroupWise client on your computer. Update your GroupWise client at your convenience. Because this release contains performance and stability improvements, all users are encouraged to upgrade.

On-Campus users may update using the Application Explorer:
  • Locate the Application Explorer icon on your desktop, and browse to DREW > Install Software > GroupWise > Novell GroupWise 7 SP2. Click Yes when prompted to install the update.
Off-Campus users (or users with non-standard PCs without the Application Explorer) may download the new release of GroupWise from the CNS web site:
  • Consult this web page for download and installation instructions.
What about my GroupWise Messenger Client?

GroupWise instant messaging (GroupWise Messenger) is updated separately from GroupWise email. CNS will also be installing and an updated version of the Messenger server software, detailed in the schedule on this page.

After the Messenger server has been updated, GroupWise Messenger users will automatically be prompted to update their client the next time they start Messenger. Simply click Yes to download and install the new release of Messenger.

We thank you for your patience and cooperation during these upgrades. As always, should you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us at cns@drew.edu.
