Novell client with W2K

By erique51 ·
Using both Novell Clients 4.7 and 4.8, a some users on the network end up with an "exploding explorer". In other words when the Web view is enabled under folder options and a NetWare mapping to a drive that contains the users name as a variable in the script, Microsoft's explorer resets itself. If I remove certain mappings (the ones that contain the username variable) then Explorer stops exploding!?!? This only happens with some users, and just appears after a certain amount of time (in other words a user might not have problems for months, and then suddenly something happens which continuosly makes their explorer explode)

Thanks
Eric

How are you passing the user name to the script? Long user names can be an issue if you use the old style NetWare login scripts. I also believe the user name variable is limited to 8 characters. THere is another variable that will work with longer user names.

Also, what environmental variables are you setting on the local machine?

If the user name for the network and the username for the local Win2K machine are different, I've seen problems when the network does a refresh. You can play with the advance settings under the Novell client or you can look at creating dynamic accounts on the local machine (removed when user logs off) to help prevent this discrepancy. This ability is available under the base ZENworks package also knownas the starter package.

There is a fix from novell for client 4.8 here http://support.novell.com/servlet/tidfinder/2961866. We used it and no **** ups after this patch. It relates to how file locking is addressed usually causes page faults reboots and no saves of ms officedocuments. This fix will help you by the way im on a win 2k pro machine with client 4.8 and this patch.
