Repairing a Workgroup || |
A repair operation is available to correct certain aspects of a
workgroup that may have been manually configured or damaged.
The repair operation
can be used to install a fresh set of web pages for the workgroup, delete
and re-create the web server settings for the workgroup, and reset the related
file system permissions.
The repair operation is not available for a workgroup until it has
been upgraded to the latest version. The latest version is the
version that matches that of the Workgroup Management System. The
Workgroup Management System version can be found in the upper right
corner of the Workgroup Management System Home Page.
The options available to repair a workgroup are:
- Copy Web Files
This option will copy a fresh set of web pages into the workgroup's
directory. By default, the workgroup's directory can be found
where workgroup is the name of the workgroup.

you will need to re-apply the changes after performing a
repair with this option selected.
- Reset File Permissions
This option will reset the file system permissions for the workgroup to
the defaults that were set when the workgroup was created.

workgroups, you will need to re-apply these changes
after running the repair operation with this option selected.
