Hi,
I am runnig a novell Server. In the login script of novell, I am running a DOS program. When users are logging into the server from Windows 98 machine(client side), it is opening a DOS winodow titled 'NWLSCON' and runs. But some of the machines it is not happening. When this DOS window comes it gives an error of illegal operation and ask for reboot the machine. This is happening only when the user is logging in the first time, ie if he loggs off and login again the problem does't occur. Kindly give me a solution for this

I would suggest Start-Run-SFC on those machines.  Does it find any corrupt system files?
You can also do that and replace that one system file.

Are you calling any NetWare-specific commands (eg: cx, map, capture) from the Login script? Or are you just calling DOS commands from a .bat file?

If you're just calling DOS commands, maybe replicate the commands into a batch file on the local hard drive and call it when machine cold-restarts. Or put a pause command at the end of the batch file and see if there are any errors.

Also maybe Set Comspec=S1:command.com

at the top of the login script. Search Drive S1 being mapped to the path to command interpreter of course.

Have you tried disabling the login script for these users who log onto those machines, and try running the commands manually? Maybe it's conflicting with something that runs at startup.

run MSCONFIG and try disabling a few programs. I know it's a painful process, but that's the only way, unless you're ready to FORMAT and start over (Which sometimes turns out to be a faster solution - and the ONLY solution)

Good Luck
