Windows 2000 connecting to NetWare Serve

By mullins ·
I'm having trouble getting a Windows 2000 PC to connect to a Novell Server which is not at the root of my Novell tree.

The PC has Microsoft Netware Client installed.

When I try to login to my Novell Server, via Network Neighborhood, the Windows 2000 PC instead tries to login to the Server at the top of my tree.

Example: I try to login to SCTECH03, but Windows 2000 wants a user name and password for SCTECH01. SCTECH03 is under a different context on the same tree.

Do I have to havethe Novell client for Windows 2000, or is there another way around this?

I would suggest using the Novell client for Windows 2000, you will also have to download the patch to upgrade to V4.80.20000717 for nwadmin.exe to run correctly.

It is my understanding that the Login Server is there strictly for Bindery compatibility. In 4.x and above, you long into a context, not a server. Users are set up in a given context, not a given server. Make sure that the user name exists in thecontext you are logging into.

I feel the MS Client for Novell Networks is much faster and "cleaner" than the Novell client, but, of course doesn't have the configuration options and you may not be able to run NWAdmin from that W/S.

Make sure that you have a userID/password sync on both servers and that you verify the context on the workstation to match the server that you are trying to log into..

Use a Novell client32 version 4.8 for windows 2000. This will solve your problem. It is downloadable at Novell's support site.

Good luck...
