I have a recurring message on a Netware 3.12 server, this is

9/16/98 6:32:59 am  Severity = 5.
1.1.87 Unable to open file NET$ACCT.DAT to add audit record

the file is 6.21 MB in size and I can't seem to get rid of this message - I have rebooted the server to no avail,

Can anyone tell me exactly what this file does and how to fix it? I can't find reference to it in any of the manuals
