One of your servers is configured with the wrong IPX network number. Find out what the correct number is and correct it on the offending server.

At the server console where the error message is appearing, enter the command Reset Router. This will regenerate the routing table and stop the errors.

Another issue could be that servers in your network are having different IPX Network numbers. Identify the other server and ensure the IPX Numbers are identical.

In your case its the node with the mac address of 00672338C from which the incorrect network number is being advertised.

Type "reset router" at the server console. That will probablly solve the problem. Otherwise, I assume you changed either the NIC or the whole server (or moved it) verify that the new Nic has the correct network address settings. (there are two)

the INTERNAL network number in Autoexec.ncf
"load install"
"NCF file options"
"edit autoexec.ncf"
This number identifies the server. If it is 5B54953A change it to CAE6DF73. You will need to "down", and then "restart server" for this to take effect.

The External network number in the NIC config identifies which network the server shares with all other clients. Typing INETCFG at the console will bring up a list of possible networking settings. If you have not ran INETCFG before, it will initially ask if you would like to move the administration of networking components over. Answer yes. Then in the BINDINGS menu, look for the ID STRING 5B54952A, if it is there, highlight that entry, and hit enter. Change the IPX Network Number to CAE6DF73.

This is not caused by the "internal" IPX number on your server. This number is manually or automatcally assigned to each NetWare server on an IPX segment and should always be unique. Rather the Router configuration errors such as the one you're experiencing occur when two or more servers or other simular devices attempt to apply a different segment number or "name" to the same IPX segment. To fix this problem go to the server where this error is being generated and go into the "INSTALL" (NW 4.X and 3.x: load install) or nwconfig (NW5) utility and look at the bind statements for your network cards. Look for the one that ends with "net=5b54952a" and try changing it to Cae6df73 and restart the server. If this does not correct the problem check you the Autoexec.ncf of your other servers. If all are consistent, you may have some HP print server (or simular device) on your network that just need to be restarted.

To add to SStalib@yahoo.com, the configuration error can also be caused by a printer that has been moved from one network to another. In the Printer configurator on the server, you must delete the definition of that printer, then reboot the printerand then rediscover it in the configurator. The configurator will make the printer maintain it's old IPX Network address until this is accomplished.
