Client for Win 2K Server

By bart777 ·
We are slowly upgrading our servers ro 2K and are having problems with the new client 4.8. It seems that when we upgrade the client the server no longers wantss to boot properly, or at all.

We have upgraded 4 servers so far and have had to aborton 1 other. (Thank God for Ghost) The symptoms are Long boot times (20 minutes+), server hangs and never boots, Event viewer shows a ton of errors in all of the networking protocols, and the admins are running out of hair....

According to the Novell website the client 4.8 is for workstation and it does run fine on the 2K stations that we have here, but the servers just like to **** up.

Any ideas????

Thanks in adavance...

Client for Win 2K Server

is there a compelling reason to use the novell client versus the ms client services for netware? i have installed the novell 4.8 client on a 2000 server, and it does work fine - you just have to have all your i's dotted and t's crossed beforehand. however, unless you really need it for nds-specific apps (i.e. nwadmin, zenworks, etc) i'd stick with csnw.

Unfortunatly we use NWadmin, NDPS and ZEN with our Citrix servers. The MS client does not give us all of the tools that we require, but thanks.
