OS/2 Warp 4 TCP/IP Problem
Posted on 2001-06-15
I have an OS/2 Warp 4 workstation from ActiveVoice running their Repartee voicemail system.
This box came prebuilt without TCP/IP installed. I followed the instructions about running INSTALL.EXE from the OS/2 CD and successfully installed TCP/IP.
I was able to browse the Internet, ping local servers and be pinged.
When I attempt to back up the OS/2 box using ARCserve 7 for NetWare (the OS/2 box is running the ARCserve Universal Client Agent for OS/2) - I can use the ARCserve Manager to browse the file and directory structure on the OS/2 box perfectly (ARCserve Manager runs under Windows NT).
HOWEVER - when I actually run the backup job, ARCserve attempts to connect to the OS/2 box and then fails with an ARCserve error code - it also returns an OS/2 error code: -123
Then the backup fails.
Funny thing is - when I took identical hardware and the OS/2 CD-ROM that shipped with the Repartee system and built up an OS/2 Warp 4 installation according to their instructions, I can get everything working perfectly - including a backup and file verify.
Obviously it's a configuration issue with OS/2 Warp 4 - however I am new to this OS so I have NO idea what to look for. I did not see anything unusual in the CONFIG.SYS or the MPTCONFG.INI files between the two OS/2 boxes.
Points will be increased if necessary...
