Netware 5.1 -> Slow Read/Write/Seek Files

hello ...
i'm new here, please help
first sorry for my english .....

i was upgrading Netware 5.1 from old hw (Pentium IV with 256 MB memory)
to new hw (Core I3 with 2 GB DDR3 memory), Mirrored SCSI 142GB with
Adaptec SCSI card ...

the problem is: my old hw faster than my new hw :( especially in
read/write/seek command on database programs...

1. some proses done in old hw in 15 minutes but in new hw got more than
45 minutes.
2. simple program to add/edit 1 database record, in old hw < 1 second,
in new hw got 5 - 10 second to finish.

the different is:
old hw only using IPX, new hw using IPX & IP (for VPN connection to
other place)

both without Support Pack, because if i installed the Support Pack, my
IP connection disconnected (can not connect).

please help

Please download from the file finder at Extract Config.nlm from it and copy that to

On the console do LOAD CONFIG /jumba1se, and wait until the output file
CONFIG.TXT gets created. Please post that file here, with any public IP
addresses and RConsole passwords edited out. Thank you.

Well that's a real problem and has to be fixed. My guess you be a lan
driver problem, have you tried installing it without allowing driver

LAN issues can cause big problems of the sort you describe.   On
MONITOR go to the LAN Drivers menu and look for error counters
incrementing.   ( Especially collisions, FCS errors, ... )  Check the
stats on he switches the server connects to, will have corresponding
errors as seen by the switch.

Patch the server, install latest LAN drivers, as ataubman suggests.

Netware 5.1, Netware 5.1 SP6, Netware 5.1 SP8, Nici
I'm building a test network that is currently a mess. This network will be used to test the migration of my 10 netware 5.1 Sp 6 servers to NW 6.5. I'm putting two netware 5.1 servers and one MS 2003 server into the test network. Testserver 1 is a 5.1 SP6 server with a master replica. When installing Testserver 2 using the NW51SP6 overlay, the installation failed with a css.nlm "waiting for xmgr" error. Consequently, I was going to create a 5.1 server and then install the SP6 overlay or the SP6 depending on what worked best. My NW51 original disks are scratched and...

Netware 6.5 install into Netware 5.1 Tree
I was able to install my first Netware 6.5 server into my Netware 5.1 tree but I have a couple issues. I already had 400 Edirectory Licenses installed so I didn't install any Netware 6.5 Client licenses. When I changed the login script to map to the new server no one accept admins could map any drives. We were getting 8901 error codes. Do I need to install client licenses to make this go away? Also no replicas of the master Netware 5.1 server was installed on the Netware 6.5 server, so how do I force the new server to hold a read/write replica of the master. Thanks ...

Upgrade Netware cluster from Netware 5.1 to Netware 6.5
Hello! We bought new hardware for our 2 new Netware 6.5 servers for cluster. Now we 've cluster on Netware 5.1 with shared disk system. I wonder what design of upgrading is better. Is it better that i install Netware 5.1 on both new servers and for begining make migration from NW5.1 to NW51 cluster (just changing the hardware for servers) and the second step make inplace migration to Netware 6.5? Or is it better to install Netware 6.5 with latest support packs on both new servers, prepare existing NDS tree for cluster migration, and make migration with upgrade wizard on both ser...

netware 5.1 sp8 in a mixed netware 5.0 / 5.1 nds7 tree
Any problems doing an overlay SP8 for Netware 5.1 (on only 1 server, the backup server) in a mixed environment and then upgrading Groupwise and Primary File Server later on off-hours? Specifically, the question is, all servers in the tree are NDS 7.62b The SP8 seems to require NDS 8.x. Will this 1 server running NDS 8.x cause a problem in the same tree with all the other 7.62b servers? It shouldn't cause a problem -- heck, NW 5.1 SP8 will 'play' with NW 4.2 servers (DS 6.21). -- Barry Schnur Novell Support Connection Volunteer Sysop ...

Netware 4.1 with Netware SAA 4.0 upgrade to Netware 5.1
Dear sirs, I would like to know what is the correct procedure to upgrade a Netware 4.1 with Netware for SAA 4.0 server to Netware 5.1. This is the last server we have to upgrade, all the other are already on netware 5.1. Can I just proceed with a inplace upgrade? If so, Do I have to change anything in Netware for SAA? What kind of service pack should I use on Netware 5.1? After upgrade do I need saa40020.exe for netware 5.1? Just a few questions to make sure I'am on the right track. Thanks in advance Ger van de Kolk I did a 4.1o to 5.0 with SAA4.0 a coup...

Slow Migration to Netware 6 from Netware 5.1
The current environment is 2 Netware 5.1 Servers running SP5. I have a new server which I would like to install into the tree with Netware 6 or 6.5. My question is if I install Netware 6,6.5 on the new server will I have to immediately upgrade the others, or will the network be okay with a mixed environment. Things currently work very well and I dont want to be forced to do an upgrade on all the servers until I am ready. Thanks Brian Brian, Mixing 5.1 and 6.x is not a problem. Just make sure that the 5.x servers are appropriately patched prior to introduc...

Slow Backup and File Copy NetWare 6.5 SP2 & 5.1 SP7 Servers
Not sure where to start with this one. Two Servers running fine on internal network, one NW 6.5 SP2 and one NW 5.1 SP7, they have been moved to our DMZ and ever since they are giving problem with response times. IP Address's have been changed and they are working fine with Timesync and Partition Sync is fine. Backups and file copies are taken up to 250% longer then they did before. Have checked as much of the configuration as I can think of at this time, but nothing is jumping out at me, I can connect to the servers and ping them. Any ideas on things to check would be ...

Netware 5.1 to Netware 6.5 upgrade
I currently have 2 netware 5.1 servers and want to upgrade to netware 6.5. The Netware 5.1 servers are running NDS 7.47. Should I upgrade to edir on the netware 5.1 servers before the migration, if so what are the steps, as I read the update on the netware 5.1 download section that said that the edir update cannot be applied to a 5.1 server running NDS 7.x or can I use NDS 7.47 on the 5.1 server during the migration process?
