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,

I have Netware 4.1 running on dos with dataflex and windows 98 machines. I
am getting a Windows xp or xp professional machine. Any one know which one
would work best for a dos based database system and would work with novell
4.1 and which client to use. We also have word and excel documents on the
fileserver that are shared by the windows 98 workstations. We would like
the xp or professional to run the dos stuff and also share the word and

We only have a NetWare Server (that will be updated to OES2 at a later
date. We need to have a few Windows XP PCs setup so when I login into
my tree using the Novell Client, that I also log into the local windows
XP PC. Are there settings somewhere that I need to review?
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

Just for those also searching for the right solution that worked for
me... Thought I would pass on what I found.
I have some XP Pro stations that will be used by possibly anyone from
our Netware 6 system and wanted different profiles for each user and
also wanted it to automatically login to their specific XP Profile
immediately after logging into Novell.
It seems like it should be an easy task to sync or pass on the logon
names and passwords to the Windows logon process, but I couldn't figure
it out on my own.
The problem was that every time a user logs into Novell, it wan...Creating Roaming Profiles for 2K and XP with no domain (for netware users)
We are currently running Netware 5.0 with a variety of win2k and winXP
workstations. Our current configuration has a local account set up on
every workstation for the user who normally uses that computer.
I'd quite like for my users to be able to go to any computer on the network
and log in. Is there a way in a non-domain environment for me to set up
something simlar to "roaming profiles" that can be pulled from the netware
server when a person logs in?
I've tried looking in the knowledgebase, but haven't found what I am
looking for. If it is there, and I...netware 6, XP workstation loses connection when switching users
Netware 6 server, 4.9 client on XP workstation. When someone logs out and
a new user logs in to workstation, the connection is lost to the Netware
6 server. Other connections to other servers are kept. A reboot of the
workstation brings back the connection. Any ideas?
When someone logs out from a NW server, which happens automatically when
they log off the PC, the user's licensed connection is indeed terminated, by
design. Usually the PC would still have a not-logged-in connection to that
server, but it doesn't matter if it doesn't, when the next user logs in it
should ...single XP local profile / multiple Netware users password problem
Hey. I'm using NW5.1 here and I've been having this problem lately :
I needed to create some new accounts, where the client would ask the user
to chose its password at first login. This was no problem with win9x. It
creates a local profiles with the same username as the NW account and
everything's fine. Now with XP, I need everyone to use the same local
profile on any given computer (for example, everyone logging onto
"Workstation1" will use the "WS1" local profile). The problem is that the
client seems to automatically make the NW account's password ...New Windows XP Client / Old 5 user Netware 4.1
New Windows XP client connects and logs into old 5 user netware 4.1 server
using Microsoft Network but refuses to find or log into same server using
Novell Netware program. Why????????????
Will it be necessary to upgrade to server to accomodate the new client, or
is there a patch, etc. that will allow this connection?? How is Microsoft
able to make this connection without upgrading the server, etc????
When I purchased Novell 4.1, it was with the understanding that new
clients will be able to connect. Is seems grossly unfair to require
additional cost for new product now tha...Migrate Netware 6 users to Netware 6

The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Commi...Change User on XP Pro
I'm not sure if this is a Novell or MS issue, I'm guessing MS, but
no help as usual, so I thought I'd ask here. I have a WinXP Pro SP1
that went to someone else. Instead of recreating a user on there &
to set it all up again, I just used XP's rename user thing to change
username. For some reason it will log into the computer when it's on
network here using the new username, NW5.0SP6a, but when you do
only you have to use the old username!
Any ideas on why this is & how to fix it?
...XP Client and NetWare 5
Which version of client do u recommend to use with WIN XP SP2 and NETWARE
Using M2, Opera's revolutionary e-mail client: http://www.opera.com/m2/
The latest, version 4.91 with SP2. Try earlier versions only if you
have specific issues with this one. There are also a few post-SP2
patches available you might try in case of any such issues.
