Novell Workstation Won't Attach To Serve

January 30, 2015 at 22:04:06
Specs: xp or win 7, intel i7
Have a Novell server running 3.12 (50 user). Server boots without errors and mounts SYS.
Commands show
Server name is LEGACY
Volume is SYS

Problem. Can’t get any workstation to attach to server. Won’t map \\LEGACY\SYS
Of course, I need ONE DIRECTORY from the server but can’t access the server. When using monitor functions, shows the directory and files to be intact.
Will gladly pay for support to get the data.

I assume, you try connect to the server, using Windows XP or higher.
I furthermore assume, you have installed the Novell Client, don't you?

If so, have you configured the Novell Client, to connect to the Novell Server in Bindery Mode?
This is necessary, because Netware 3.12 has no NDS or eDirectory.
It uses bindery logins.
Per default, The Novell Client is configured, to login in NDS/eDirectory mode, but you can configure, to use Bindery mode.

Thank you so very much for taking some of your time to assist me with my problem.
Don't take this lightly, I do appreciate the assistance. In the end, we found the issue was a bad port in the switch to which the server was in.

Thanks again.
