access drive C: from the server

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.

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

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.

Did you try to edit the file??

LOAD EDIT C:\ABEND.LOG

WHOOPS

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

After loading toolbox you can use the following to find the abend.log

dir c:\abend.log /s

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

load edit c:\nwserver\abend.log is definitely your best bet.
