GWCheck Errors

Also shown in a report as "Uncorrectables" these are issues that can never be resolved automatically and require administrative input to correct.

Error Number Description Resolution/Fix
1 Insufficient memory to run GWCheck. Fix: Somewhat old message - Need more RAM.
2 GWCheck cannot access the post office database (wphost.db) Fix: Path, Mapping or file may be incorrect. PO rebuild might be required.

8 Error reading user databases Fix
9 Error reading message databases Fix
10 Reason Fix
11 Errors starting database transaction Fix: Usually caused by database locking issues. These will most likely be married to 820E errors in the logs. Backups are usually the culprit here as we're all sure you don't allow direct access to the post office for your clients.

15 Record action error An action could not be performed on a record because it was locked or could not be located
16 Users requested that do not exist on post office Fix: If using the stand alone GWCheck you have mapped your drive to the wrong post office (Obviously :) ). Please map to the actual post office the user is on. If you have mapped to the correct post office or you are using the ConsoleOne snapins to submit the maintenance request you may be dealing with a stuck move. Which is a very different problem.

41 Directories full-must be cleaned to do rename Fix: Whilst performing maintenance GWCheck was not able to rename a database file. This occurs when a database has been rebuilt so many times the file names have reached *.dbz. Delete some or all of the renamed database files and re-initiate the maintenance. Oh, and find out why the database has been rebuilt 26 times.
42 Reason Fix
43 Reason Fix
44 Database invalid due to security breach Fix: This error usually presents by the client as a D115 error and should be handled with thought. It results from invalid database verification records. This verification info could be the database context within the message store (the wrong database file is in the store) or confusion involving the users GroupWise or network identity according to the database. These conditions can occur during renames, moves, restores, or just plain corruption. Running a content check with the VERIFYMODE support/misc option against the user database will resolve it in most cases. It is important to make a copy of the user database prior to the repair as there is a slim chance the fix will permanently damage the database.

46 Reason Fix
47 Reason Fix
48 Orphaned QuickFinder index files (deleted) Fix: Running a standard analyze/fix for contents against the post office will delete the orphaned files. The next QuickFinder indexing run will recreate any needed index files.
49 Invalid QuickFinder index files (deleted) Fix: Running a standard analyze/fix for structure against the post office will delete the invalid files. The next QuickFinder indexing run will recreate any needed index files.
50 Orphaned BLOB file (deleted) or GWCheck encountered a BLOB file that was not associated with any library Fix: No Fix required. GWCheck deleted the extraneous BLOB file for you.
51 Invalid Blob files deleted Fix
52 Blob files with missing files deleted Fix
53 Blob files truncated to 0 bytes Fix

81 Error handling Special Cleanup Fix: None, informational. When using special GWCheck support options, such as "itempurg" an issue was reported when cleaning up the item matching the specified criteria.
82 Reason Fix
83 Item failed to Archive Fix: The "83" Items that have failed to archive, Error code is on an email that failed to archive out of a mailbox, but is now flagged as archived. The user would have seen a D107 error during the archive. In the GWCheck log (Contents Check) you should be able to see the problem user, user database file name, who the email was from and the Subject line. Then, the administrator can go to the user and decide whether to recover the email or delete (Empty) it.
