Gradequick problems

By 5jgibbs ·
OK, at my school, we use a program called gradequick. We want to implement a new version of grade quick on the macs so finally ALL computers can be mac os x instead of having one OS 9 and the rest os x. Now, each user is authenticated through the ldap server. Then based on user specifics, they either have access to gadequick on not.

But anyway, the problem is, we have the gadequick installed on the Novell server, now, when a user launches grade quick, they must have mounted there Novell directory, NOT THE OS X servers directory.

Grade quick should find the path, and prompt for authentication, but does not.

But we think that since Novell uses a different "what do you call it" "\\" or "//" than the macs, its not communicating correctly with the software running on the Novell box.

But anyway, all this info is uploaded to an AS400 that does the rest of the work.

So if anyone can sort though this all and help us out then it would be great.

First, have the network architect sit all you cowboys down at the table for a wrangle. It appears the herd is stampeding in all directions and the chuck wagon has gotten knocked over...

Sorry was watching jack Plance movies last night and was overcome for a moment.

First, where does the application reside should be the first troubleshooting step.

Next, verify that the clients can access the Novell server and have rights to the file.

That alone should keep you busy for a few days. Check back in with answers.
