Managing the GroupWise POA Application

eG Enterprise can automatically discover the Groupwise Post Office Application (POA) in the environment and also lets you to add the POA component if the server is not auto-discovered. The following steps explain you how to manually add the POA component using the eG administrative interface.

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. If a GWIA POA is already discovered, then directly proceed towards managing it using the COMPONENTS – MANAGE/UNMANAGE page.
  3. However, if it is yet to be discovered, then run discovery (Infrastructure -> Components -> Discover) to get it discovered or add the component manually using the COMPONENTSpage (Infrastructure -> Components -> Add/Modify). Remember that components manually added are managed automatically. Figure 1 clearly illustrates the process of adding a Groupwise Post Office - Netware component.
