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

This file is meant for Accounting purpose on the network.  

Login as Supervisor or Equvivalent.

Go to Syscon

Click on Accounting

Click on Accounting Servers

You will see your server's name.  Press Delete.

It will confirm wether you want to remove accounting from this server.

Confirm in "Yes"

Reboot the Server.

The message should go Away.
