By youngjedi ·
Although SLP is selected I continue to get an error 8884 each time I login. I am using Novell client 4.9. Any suggestions?

Cannot use MAP command to map a network Drive - TID10024180 (last modified 19OCT2002)

Cannot use MAP command to map a network Drive

Trying to use the DOS MAP command to map a drive to a server across the WAN using PureIP.

Error: MAP-4.13 (970813) PTF-430: The following drive mapping operation could not be completed.
The error code was 8884.

Error: 8884

Not using SLPDA, service couldn't register by the server's name, if the user had authenticated to the server first through the GUI client THEN the DOS MAP command would succeed, otherwise it would fail.


DOS MAP command allows the use of a server's IP address (in the case of NW5 Pure IP) ie:

C>map r:=x.x.x.x\path


Use the IP address in the map command if not using an SLPDA.
