Act DB on NW6

I have a problem that is a bit specific but maybe someone can point me
some possible causes.

I have an Act v6 database on a mapped network drive with a 10 user
Win98 users can login to the database from their machines with no
however my WinXP machine will only login if I am the only user. With
users logged in I get a message from Act that the application is
already in
use and cannot login.

On speaking to Act technical they tell me it is most probably an issue
folder rights on the server or user rights on the WinXP machine as I
login as the only user successfully. Act tries to make a connection to
database before the Act login dialogue is shown, however with more
than one
user already in the db I don't get that far.

Logging onto the server as Admin with full rights and logging into
WinXP as
administrator with full admin rights does not cure my problem.

Any ideas please.

Sometimes specific builds of nwfs.sys in the Novell Client can make or
legacy/db apps.
I would try the latest beta SPs on 4.83 or 4.90 and report as much as
possible to Novell.

Terry, is that an NSS volume where the Act DB resides?  The Act folks 

have a problem with NSS volumes and handling file locking.

Not an NSS volume Barry. I have re-installed Act after manually
cleaning it
out and the problem has gone from that machine. I guess it may be an
Act upgrade. I did find Sage tech sup a little wanting on this issue
blaming Novell Server rights first. Thanks for the heads up on the NSS

volume issue though.

Upgrade from NW6.0 to NW6.5
Hi, We are currently running NW6.0 / SP4 in a high availability clustered environment. Other applications running in this environment is Apache, Netmail, Radius and we're currently on eDir 8.6.2. We are planning to upgrade to NW6.5 on the netware kernel. Would it be recommended to upgrade to SP4 or SP3 and should I be aware of any other funnies that you guys are aware of during this upgrade.

Windows XP Netware Client and Netware 4.11 server
I am having some odd problems with this combination. Most of our client machines are W98 and the login script seems to work just fine. The new Windows XP Pro computer I am trying to add to the network doesn't seem to behave the same as my W2K Pro computers using the same Novell Client. Login times and NetWare rescource access times were very long so I removed the IP support from the Novell Client, specified the 802.3 frame used by the 4.11 server and specified its actual network number in the NWLink protocol settings. That helped one login user: everything worked nicely, l...

NetWare Servr Only

I can't use a generic windows local ID because the local ID needs adinistrator privileges and I don't want to setup a local ID with no password where it could be accessed by anyone Any suggestions?

membership DB, profile DB, and role DB
I use the following code to programatically cycle through each record in an mdb database and create users with the Membership.CreateUser method.  The code also creates a profile for the same user before moving to the next record.  The membership and profile DB is on an SQL 2000 server. How can I assign all these users to the role of user in this section of code? Also any idea why only 104 out of 148 records are added to the Membership table while all 148 profiles are created?  A sample record would be:UserName      DIST    ...

Hi, all. Which version of client do u recommend to use with WIN XP SP2 and NETWARE 5.1 sp6??? Thanks -- Using M2, Opera's revolutionary e-mail client: The latest, version 4.91 with SP2.

upgrading nw6 to nw6
I just want to say, I'm a relative novice when it comes to Netware and I've been posting a lot of questions these days preparing for an upgrade, and you guys have been incredible! Thanks! Now that you're all buttered up, i'm upgrading two NW6 servers to new hardware. What I was thinking about doing was installing SYS on a mirror and RAID5 for the data. That way the OS is seperate from the data. 1. Is there any benefit to creating a large SYS volume, or on the flip side, is there any reason not to? I have two 18G drives I would mirror and I can't see was...

Migration NW6-NW6
Hello, I am in front of migration 3 servers NW6SP4 to new hardware. I have several questions about. 1. - What is expected duration of migration? Mean on pure migration process without pre-migration and post migration tasks. My previous expereance of data copy from one server to another server where not good. When copy of volume content intended by Netware Copy(NwClient), estimated time where count in days. Morover, test show that copy was slow and most probably, copy would take days. However, ncopy did it in few hours. I am wondering how Migration Wizard will behave. (Network is 1...
