Client 4.90 SP2 (update D) VS Beta client 4.91
I have problems opening/closing the same Ms Access database many times in
My workstation have WIN XP SP1 and Client 4.90 SP2
Once trying to install beta client 4.91, the problem disappear. (With
client 4.83 SP1, the problem isn't present neither..)
Anyone know what's the difference with Ms Access file handling between
those two client version?
Client 4.90 SP2 is validate in our environment for ZFd, IDM2 password
synchronization...so I don't really want to upgrade all my clients!
Does anyone know a good fix?

I have posted information about a problem in another section. I will
paste them in here now as I believe that theproblem I am having is
totally related to clients other than 4.83 sp1. That old client appears
to be the only one that works the way it should for the Autocad program
when files are on a 6.5 server. If the files are on older servers, then
the newer clients also work.

...NetWare Client 4.90-SP2 and Windows XP SP2 and SLP
I have configured my NetWare Client 4.90-SP2, running on Windows XP, to
obtain SLP DA server IP's from my DHCP server (ISC DHCP, v3). Everything
works just fine. "slpinfo /all" shows the 2 DA's, says their up, gives the
correct SLP version, etc. I install SP2 for Windows XP, and now "slpinfo
/all" shows "NORSP" instead of "UP" for the two DA servers. I then turned
off the windows firewall that came with SP2, and now everything works
again. Anyone had similar experience?
I can post config/output if needed.
Have see...Upgrading from the 4.90 to 4.91 sp2 client
Best practices regarding upgrading from the 4.90 client to the 4.91sp2 client.
Is it better to completely remove the 4.90 client, then install the 4.91
Or is is just as good of an option to simpling install the 4.91sp2 client
on a workstation that still has the 4.90 client on it?
Unless your 4.90 installation is seriously corrupted, there is no reason
why a simple upgrade wouldn't work. At our site, we always do simple
upgrades by automatically installing the new version over the old one
without removal and we never had problems with that.

I'm having a lot of troubles to connect an XP Pro workstation with a 4.11
Novell network. All the other workstations use W98, so it's my first
experience with this. The PC is a Pentium 4 2.53 GHZ with Windows XP
Proffesional SP1. The network cards (I installed a second one) are a
D-Link DFE 538TX and a NIC Fast Ethernet PCI Family RTL8139 Realtek. The
server runs Novell 4.11. I installed Netware Client 4.91 SP3 and it
wouldn't log in (giving message "cannot acces the tree"). Changed protocol
from IPX and IP to IPX only. Same result. Entered correct frame typ...Unable to Create Shortcuts with Netware Client 4.90 and 4.91
Just installed several Gateway E-Series 4300 computers with Windows Xp,
SP2 on my Netware 5.1 network. Added the Windows Client for Netware so I
could map a drive to my servers. Tried creating a new shortcut on the
desktop using the "right-click, New/Shortcut" procedure. Everything worked
After I installed the Netware 4.91 client, the computer locks when I click
on "New". Only way to get out is to reboot or LogOff. Tried installing the
4.90 client with SP2, but got the same result.

Posted this problem last week, but seem to have lost my thread to the
solution. Please bare with me.
To review: I've installed both the 4.90, SP2 and 4.91 clients on separate
computers now. These are new Gateway E-4300 machines with Windows Xp, SP2
installed. Neither client will allow me to create shortcuts on the
desktop. Before I install the Novell client, the Windows Client for Novell
allows me to create shortcuts.
Had this same problem with Windows 2000, but SP2 to the 4.90 client seemed
to fix it. Now I'm encountering the same problem with Win Xp.

I have a Netware 4.11 server running with new XP machines (before there were
W2K clients). I am using Client 4.91 SP4 and cannot anymore start NWADMIN32
(from PUBLIC/WIN32). NWADMN95 works.
NWADMIN32 (from PUBLIC/WIN32) still works from an old W2K client.
I tried the W2K compatability mode, but not success. No error message, just
nothing happens after doubleclick on NWADMIN32.
Thanks for help,

I had posted early last week about a problem with losing connections to a
novell 6 server from an XP workstation after moving to client 4.9 sp2.
I tried a variety of things (including post SP2 patches and rolling back
to client 4.83 SP1 and every client and patch combo in between).
Unfortunately, nothing worked. I even tried mapping with CIFS instead and
the problem continued.
The problem doesn't appear in all machines with XP and SP2, but it has
occurred in quite a few (one is too many when the user is screaming and

I have a few XP workstations with sp2 and the firewall set to "on". A few
of my workstations are having problems with seeing the NDS tree. They
will be able to login in but after a minute when windows loads everything -
they are not able to access anything on the novell network. We can see
the mapped drives but as soon as we click on it - it says it is not
available. We try to login again and we will receive an error message
that it cannot find the tree when we click on the context.
This will happen intermittenly and can kick them off at any moment. It

The problem started manifesting itself sometime around November - December
Environment: Windows XP SP2 with all latest patches. Server NW 4.11 with IP

First login after reboot runs well 90% of a times. In about 10% of all
cases it will hang on the login screen with the animated "connection" wait
icon active indefinitely. Tried to leave it overnight, no difference. The
only remedy is a hardware reset or shutdown.
