I have a server that hangs on "reset server".
I have yet to find out why, is there a log that I can read?
I have done updates to Brighstor 9 and etrust 7 antivirus, but last time
before i tried the reset server command, i unloaded etrust 7 so its not
The server was re-started by the district so i could not capture the
reason it was hanging.
I can ping it when it is hung.

Hi! I have a Netware 6.5 server which is "pausing" every few seconds.
Rebooting appears to fix the problem temporarily, but it seems to
return several days or several weeks later. I have applied the latest
service pack and updated server.exe just recently, but the issue has
returned. I have run hardware diagnostics on the drives in this Dell
PE2650 with nothing to report. This is our primary server for user
file storage and also runs ZenWorks, Symantec AV, and remote agents for
Backup Exec, but unloading all related modules doesn't seem to affect
the problem. Users e..."cloning" Netware 6.5 servers.
We have a NW 6.5 Server in a VMware VM. I made clones of the server and
renamed and re-ip'd them, but now they all think that they have the master

Also, I changes the context of the 2 server that are clones, but they do
not show up in the tree.
What mods are necessary when I clone a NW 65 server? any help?
1. Disconnect the "clones" from the network (make certain they can not talk
to anything - even other vm sessions). Do not skip this step or ...WebAccess 6.5 on NetWare 6.5 Intermittent "Pause"
I'm running WebAccess straight from Small Business Suite 6.5 (GW 6.5.1, NW

rather than the SBS. Running on a Compaq ProLiant ML350 Xeon 2.8GHz with 1GB
Webaccess pauses in operation usually in excess of 30 seconds. I've seen
threads relating to slow login, but this can happen anywhere. CPU on the
server pretty much idle. All other web admin tools (iManager etc) work
perfectly with no delays.
At first I thought it was an issue with IE6, but it also occurs with

...NetWare 6.5/SP1 "File" Server
I have 3 NetWare 4.2/SP9 servers (antiquated hardware) that I will be
consolidating into 1 NetWare 6.5/SP1 server (DL380 2.8GHz).
Management decision was to eliminate the Client32 from all 2,500
workstations in the organization during XP deployment - NOT my decision,
can't change the fact - no use debating it here...
We have several 56k sites where there are 4 or 5 PC's at each location.
IPX is not speedy enough, so the desire is to use CIFS, if possible.
I will be installing IPX and IP on the new NetWare 6.5/SP1 server so that
the XP PC's will be able to authent..."Ghost Image" of Netware 6.5 server
Hi. Maybe weird question. I have Arcserve 11 for backup of our Netware 6.5
server's data, but I was curious if there is a way to create an image of an
entire server (NDS & Data) like you can with Ghosting a workstation.
Any product names I could look at or is this not possible due to NDS

to Mexico in case a server dies from a RAID failure.

I really don't want to install SP8 on the NetWare server as I am working
on moving Netware to OES Linux. However, I need to upgrade to GroupWise
8 soon so plan to upgrade to GroupWise 8 on NetWare server which
All other 10 NetWare servers are on version 6.5 SP7 and I only intend
to upgrade one server to NetWare 6.5 SP8. Does anyone see issue with
that? I assume eDirectory does not chance with the installation of SP8.
I am running eDirectory v 220.127.116.11.

Does anyone have a recommendation for fixing a failed eDirectory Acrross

The file migration went fine, the backup of trustess went fine.
During the eDirectory migration when it downed the source server and tried

It told me to copy the autoexec.mig to autoexec.ncg if it did not complete.
