V_OS2.NLM problem

Hello all

When i try to load V_OS2.NLM to be able to run VREPAIR on a 3.11 server with long filename support, i get 'loader cannot find public symbol' about 30 times...!? Anyone have any idea what could be missing? I use OS2.NAM and 3 other NLM's on the server (for long filename support on NW3.11), as described in Novell readme for Win95 client.

Any help appreciated!

You have to install the base 3.11 OS patches to load long name space.
If you have not had long name sapce loaded before you run VREPAIR, there is not reason to run it when you run vrepair.  If you don't have it running before, that means long namespace is not currently being supported and you can remove it using vrepair.
MAKE SURE YOU ARE RUNNING THE MOST RECENT VERSION OF VREPAIR
How to do this:
Dismount your volume.
Load VREPAIR
Select 2. Set VRepair Options
Select 1. Remove Name Space Support
Select 4. OS/2

This will remove long namespace support and you can run vrepair without loading the .nam's.
Even if you don't need long namespace support, I would recomend installing the base OS updates which is available under the minimum patch list.
Go to http://support.novell.com for the patches.

I have used OS2.NAM on this server for about 6 months, and used VREPAIR 2-3 times without problem. If i don't load V_OS2.NLM before VREPAIR, it complaints (ofcourse). I haven't made any major changes in the system, but i will take your advice and load the minimum patches. There is always a risk that some NLM have been replaced accidentaly.

Thanks for your answer.
