Switching between 2 Novel 4.1 Servers

By Chad R. ·
I have two Novel 4.1 Servers and when I connect them to the same switch or hub I can only log in to one but not the other even though I can tell it which one. What ever server is plugged in or turn on last is the one I can log into. The information on them are different. Tree, Name, and context are different even the network #. Any suggestions would be help full, to get them to work together and be able to log on to each one.

Switching between 2 Novel 4.1 Servers

The problem might JUST be that each uses a different IPX network #. If I am not mistaken,
* servers in different networks cannot communicae unless through a gateway
* a client also chooses only ONE network id, and can talk with servers in that.It looks like the server broadcasts its network id and changes the client, so the server turned on last overrules the client settings of the first.

Never mind: simply try setting both to the SAME IPX network id, and see what happens...

Erik's answer is the first place to look.
I would also check what frame type each server is binding IPX to. Make these the same, and check the inetcfg or autoexec.ncf (what ever way you do it) that both servers are binding to the same net number(don't forget to check the internal IPX numbers for duplication).
For ease of use, consider merging the two trees together - unless there is a very good reason not to.
