How to run NWADMIN32 without the Novell

By cli ·
Hi all,

I've been doing some basic web design with some live webs on our web server. The Novell client does a great job at slowing simple navigation. I wait up to 2 minutes to open a web, or save it.

The reason why I run the client on my workstation is so I can use NWADMIN32, otherwise I don't need it and I would much rather use Microsofts client. Is there a way I can run NWADMIN32 alone?

I've had some luck with this although, admittedly, only on one occasion. You've got to have TCPIP running on the server. If you're on NetWare 5.x it easy and should become the standard. If you're on 4.x then you'll need to jiggle about a bit.

Once it's up just click away on your Network Neighbourhood. NWadmin32 is self-supporting and all should be tickety boo!

Hi Mike,

Running NWadmin without NWClient is a common problem.
First, you need place in %WINDIR%\SYSTEM all required by nwadmin dlls. You can simply "locate" those dlls by searching differences between %WINDIR%\SYSTEM directories on computers with MS-client for NetWare and NW-Client for NetWare (I think, a lot of nw*.dll).
Second, make sure that type of your connection is NDS, not bindery, because nwadmin work with directory services, that not accessible in bindery connection mode.

Withbest regards,
Vlad.

Depending upon which client version you are running there are a number things you might like to try before giving up on the Novell Client.
I would recommend getting the latest client (3.21 for Win 9x or 4.71 ? for Win NT).

There are then some 'Advanced Settings' which can be changed that might help speed things up. These are (at least on Win 9x Client)

Auto Reconnect Level 3
File Write Through Off
Oportunistic Locking Off

We had some V3.10 clients (Win9x) where these settings were 4/On/Off and Access queries were taking ~20 minutes. After changing to V3.21 and the above settings the queries ran in under 5 minutes.

See also the Novell TID #2955975 for info.

Not that I am aware of. What you may want to do is load the client onto a server and then set up a terminal server account and then terminal service into the server. That way the cient will not slow your server. You can also take a gander into theVNC program from AT&T tyhat is freeware and then you can VNC into any machine and run NWADMIN32 from anywhere since it is java enabled. you simply puty in the ip as such (http://192.168.254.1:5800) and then your in like flynn and you control tha machine as if it was the local machine. you need to log into the novell servers to use novell services along with the IPX compatability.

I was sure that Microsoft had a solution to your problem. They have a tech bulletin out on this issue. Look at this: http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q138/7/09.ASP


Good luck!
