I am trying to setup a 3.12 server and I am getting this error. Anyone know what it is and why after I get this error my entire server locks up? Error (1.1.141 Secondary Interrupt controller detected a lost hardware Interrupt). My system is a Pentium 90. I am using a 3c905 and a 3c509 NIC's.

Scotte,
           Just a thought here since I am not too good with Netware 3.12:  Are the two NICs conflicting with one another?  Perhaps they are trying to access the same IRQ?  I think the first thing I would try is to load only one NIC driver at a time to find out the exactly where the server locks up.  Hope that helps.

Thanks, but that didn't work...I unloaded the 3c509 card (It isn't the card on the LAN backbone) I guess the problem is with the 3c905 card (I am just not sure what the problem is yet)

Just a little more info:

The system comes up and runs fine until I try and log in thru a workstation and access anything. As soon as I try and access a file I get the same error (see above). Any other suggestions.....

I guess one of NICs or another component of your server is using IRQ 15;

Under Netware you shouldn´t (mustn´t) use IRQ 15, this IRQ is using by Netware for Error Signaling!

That was it. The 3c905 card WAS setup with IRQ 15. I moved it and setup as IRQ 9 and everything seems to be working. Thanks for your help.
