Hi,
you're probably coming from a Nt/2K background, i could be wrong..
I cant recall an ERD for Novell, i only have one years experience but i really have not heard of an ERD for novell.
I also checked the website, no results either.
Just do plenty of backups, if poss take an image of the hard disk at a basic installation

Good luck

it's called a dos boot disk.
unless your novell partition is unrepairable you
should be able to fix anything from the dos
partition. and the utilities in the c:\nwserver
directory.
when you troubleshoot novell, it's a lot like
troubleshooting a dos issue, since everything is
either in c:\nwserver\startup.ncf or
sys:system\autoexec.ncf or the dos autoexec.bat

Yes, a DOS boot disk, but you will also want the drivers for your SCSI cards, other things that load BEFORE sys can mount.

The ERD in NT/2K has no = in the NW world. The NDS is what you need to realy backup. Make sure your backup system can backup NDS, and make sure it IS backing it up. Beond that, getting a NW server back on its feet is much easyer than you may be acutom to with MS products.

There are some backup products like Arcserve and Backupexec which provide an emergency recovery procedure as an option. Basically they provide a diskette to boot your server, do a basic netware install, and restore the rest from tape. Not cheap, butyou will have your server up and running in a couple of hours instead of a day.
On the other hand, when you have all hardware drivers and settings at hand (use config.nlm) rebuilding a server by hand doesn't have to take much longer..

There is a great solution on http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions or http://support.novell.com that describes how to create a bootable CD-ROM disc as a backup for emergency.
