> Hello everyone,
> With all the distance learning going on, this is a terrible time for
GW to start acting up.  Here is what I have been dealing with.
> I'm running GW 18.1 on SLES 12.4.  All volumes are XFS.  I am
one PO, MTA, and gwia on this box for about 100 users.  I have
servers for GMS, SMG and WebAccess.
> The server has been running solid for months, but yesterday the
entire OS was locked up.  It would not even ping.  When I rebooted, it
got stuck in a boot loop.  I booted into recovery and it seemed to be
for a while, but then then entire server spontaneously rebooted
times yesterday.  I was able to get it to boot and run in normal mode.
> I did find some old stuck files in wpcsin and wpcsout that I moved
out.  I then had no inbound email because my MTA was not processing
email.  I found almost 300 email in
<domain>/mslocal/mshold/<postoffice>/4  When I moved them out,
everything worked again.
> It ran all day yesterday but this morning the PO was crashed.  I
booted from a rescue disk and did an xfs_repair on all the volumes to
make sure there was no file corruptio
> The server came up but the PO would not start.  I followed TID
7017465 and moved the ngwdfr.db from the ofmsg directory and that
> The server has been running for about an hour, but I am not
optimistic it will stay running.  I still have almost 300 messages
in <postoffice>/ofmsg.  I'm guessing they should not be there?  I also
found over 400 *.ckl files in <postoffice>/wpcsout/chk   Not sure
those either.
> Can someone point me in a direction of what to do next.  Server is
running, email is flowing, but based on yesterday and today, I don't
think this will last.
