Hello,

yes, we are using portable netware (is there anybody
who knows that?).

After a crash we need to restore the users from
a very old tape. The supervisor password is not
know.

Is there a program on the server side like native
netware's "setpwd.nlm" to restore the supervisor
from the console?

Why don't you download setpwd.nlm from http://www.novellshareware.com and run it from the floppy drive?


If the supervisor account does not exists:

Is this kind of 4.11 or 3.12??

If it is 4.11 than you can delete the whole NDS (within install.nlm) , reinstall it and then, after you know the password, restore it from the tape.

If it is 3.12 then you can download from the same site a NLM called Burgler - which will create a new supervisor account.

For saar2:

this is a version of Netware which does not run on an Intel cpu, but as a task under Unix (HP-UX i guess).  You can not run standard nlm's on this box, as far as i know.

Hello,

to saar2 and joopv:

Yes, this Netware version is a kind of Netware 386 (3.10 I think).
There is no environment to run nlms. The operating system runs in the UNIX environment without nlms. In sys/system/ there are no *.lan or *.nlm files, just the normal bindery files.

No chance to run setpwd.nlm.

Interesting that it is possible to copy the bindery files (they are not locked). If I delete them I have a bindery with a new supervisor and a guest (like normal netware). But I need the old bindery with all the users.

maybe the structure of the bindery files is the same... try to install them on a real 3.x server, and then run one of the admin hack tools like burglar.nlm to create a new supervisor account.

Thanks for this tip. This worked. The bindery structure is the same.
