Problem with Office & Windows XP

By bosston ·
On our Novell network, I have my Compaq Deskpro EP Pentium 450 with 256 ram with the latest Novell Client for XP 4.83 When accessing our Exchange 2000 server, I get a message "Microsoft Exchange Server is unavailable" with the Retry, Work Offline, Cancel. When I hit Retry it goes in on the second try. I've changed the timeout settings from 30 to 45, 60, 90 120 seconds, I've even typed in the ip address and it won't hold the ip address to the server. I've even tried the hosts file and that won't work. Any suggestions?

try creating a blank read only share on the exchange server and create a drive map using the ip so that it will create the tcp/ip conection with the server at startup - problem should go away then . your problem arise from the fact that it doesnt make a tcp conection with the server properly so check tcp /ip also . problem is more on the novel side than on pc -server side

hope you get it sorted out
