POA CPU Hog Abend in GWTCP Handler

After updating to GroupWise 6.5 the GWPOA.NLM abend reguraly in a CPU Hog Abend.

The running process is GWTCP-HANDLER process and the routine in GWENN4 is Wpf_ReadFoldersRoot.


Upgrade to GroupWise 6.5


The problem is caused due the presence of duplicate folders in the user database. In some user databases we found 10000 duplicate folders.


Run a GWCheck (on server is prefered) with the option DelDupFolders. You need to run this check several times until the log reports no more duplicate folders (code 30 and code 79).
