After install Win95, why insufficient mem to load Netware 3.2 server?
Posted on 2003-03-21
I operate a network with a file server (Pentium II 350mhz PC boot up by MS-DOS 6.22 running Netware 3.2) with several workstations (hardware range from 486DX2-66 to Pentium III 600mhz, OS = Windows 95B to 98SE, Clients=Microsoft Netware client).
Due to lack of resources to do duplex or mirror, I decide to use one workstation to double as a server if main server is down. I chose to use a Pentium II 350mhz with PnP feature, PC 64MB DRAM, 10GB Hdd partition to 2-2-5, 5GB will used by Netware 3.2 as server, installed boot up by MS-DOS 6.2, installed Netware 3.2 server software also with client software. Tested as a client: ok. Tested as a server: ok Main server users info and data are all migrated to this spare server as backup.
When spare server is not activated, it is used as a workstation. So I proceed to install Window 95 on it. Problem starts. After installation, the set continues to work well as a workstation with Win95. But when I restart in MS-DOS mode from Win95, to activate spare server. Server.exe does not load. Error message: "Insufficient memory to run NetWare 386 (requires at least 3 megabytes of extended memory)." I have checked config.sys and autoexec.bat files, no memory manager program was loaded. Any solution?
