How do you bypass Netware Server startup

By pmaro ·
What I need is to not run the autoexec.ncf. I have to get to a point in the boot process where I can edit the autoexec.ncf and take out a REM I put in which locks up the server completely. I know there is a key or key sequence you can use to force astep by step startup where I can bypass autoexec.bat. I just don't remember it for the life of me. I have a NW 4.2 for Small Business. I remmed out the "load dhcp" server statement which locks it up when the Rocketport NLMs try to load. Thanks folks.

How do you bypass Netware Server startup

by robweir In reply to How do you bypass Netware ...

Once at a DOS prompt, type server -na...This will prevent autoexec.ncf from loading. Also, you can use these commands:

-NL prevents the logo screen from displaying
-NS prevents both autoexec.ncf and startup.ncf from loading
-S <filename.ncf> specifies a different .ncf to execute.

Hope it helps.

How do you bypass Netware Server startup

by rbgnr111 In reply to How do you bypass Netware ...

the person that replied before me was partaly right
in you nwserver directory run
server.exe -ns to disable startup.ncf
server.exe -na disables the autoexec.ncf

you should be able to boot using server -na
then mount your sys volume and editthe autoexec.ncf

F5 bypasses autoexec.bat completely
F8 steps you through autoexec.bat

to bypass NetWare startup files...
server -na bypasses autoexec.ncf
server -ns bypasses startup.ncf
server -ndb starts without NDS loaded

hope this helps
