How can I access files on drive C: from the server console? I want to read the abend.log (which is on c:\nwserver\abend.log) without shutting down the server. I'm using NetWare 4.2 SFTIII.

You could use NCL.NLM, loading this NLM gives you extra console commands, one of them is DNCOPY (dos-novell copy).

You could use this command to copy the file to the novell volume and then view it.

I think you can find NCL at novell.com , if you can't then try : http://www.jonas-edv.de/pages/links.htm and you'll find NCL.NLM on the hyperlink in has to the "Uni Bochum" FTP site. If this doesn't work out i could mail it to you.

Good luck!



PS: Don't keep NCL loaded all the time on the server when you don't actually need it, it makes the server slightly unstable.

I can't use additional (third party)tools or NLMs because of security reasons.
Is there a way to do it with tools from NetWare 4.2 ?

Wouldn't quite know actually, used Novell 3 only.
But we use NCL on daily basis on 1500 Novell 3.2 fileservers without any problems for years now in a banking enviroment, so security isn't much of a problem here.

Go to the link
Download ETBOX.EXE or TBOXT.EXE
Explode the files
Copy them to sys:system
at the console prompt: "LOAD TOOLBOX"

WHOOPS

Obviously you must know the path to the file on the DOS drive and DOS must not be removed.

Oh , by the way... Pierre Baco from Novell France is the author of NCL.NLM , so it isn't really a third party tool...
