SAP & RIP IPXRTR errors between servers

By EPAIT ·
I just installed an already configured GroupWise 5.5 server from our other remote office to the main office. I had to move DNS/MX records to our DSL provider and configure IP/subnet mask on the GroupWise server. It is right next to my Netware 5.0 server and email is working but the systems are both getting the following IPXRTR errors:

RIP router configuration error detected
Node 000A0C911296C claims network address 0000001A should be 1289A093.

SAP router configuration error detected
Node 000A0C911296C (WOPCPA_GBO)claims network address 0000001A should be 1289A093

My Netware server is running the following frame types:

Ethernet 802.2
Ethernet II

My GroupWise server is running the following frame types:
Ethernet 802.2
Ethernet 802.3
Ethernet II
Ethernet SNAP

GroupWise had been installed by a contractor at the other office.

My network has to run both IP and IPX due to printer connection and a CD tower that only communicates via IPX.

Can I remove all the frame types on the email server except Eternet II. Clients all connect to email via IP.

thanks,
Rob

The answer to the second questions is yes (as far as I know). As a matter of course, I only activate the frametypes required.
Having said that, are you absolutely sure that there is nothing running IPX to connect to the GW server?
In any case, ifyou need to be running IPX, check teh autoexcec.ncf or the inetcfg files.
You will find an IPX network address allocated to each server (both the GW & the NW one).
Make sure that both of these are set to the same (I would leave the NW server aloneand just modify the GW one) and then there shouldn't be this problem, once you have restarted the server.

A couple of other things.....if your GW server is a NW5.x server, you can remove IPX, however if it is NW4.x you need IPX.

If you choose to leave IPX on both servers, remove the 802.3 and Snap from the GW server. You can do this either by editing the autoexec.ncf file or if INETCFG has been used, loading it and removing those frame types.

The error that you are seeing is caused by the network addresses that are being bound to the frame types on the two servers. The NW server thinks the network address for the 802.2 frame type should be one address and the GW server thinks it should be the other. It doesn't matter which one of the two you change, but you need to make them the same if they are on the same segment.
