Login Script "hanging" for some (not all) users
Posted on 2004-04-13
Mid morning yesterday Users started complaining that they could not access the network. We have a Netware 5.1 SP5 Server, 250 User Lic., W98,W2K & WXP workstations running clients v.4.43 SP2 and v4.90SP1a. Everything was working properly, login script started "hanging"...the script file would just freeze...had to do an "end task" to get out of it. BUT.....approx. 60% of the users logged in fine and had resources without any problems, any user that came in later in the day, just booted their machine...they would have the problem. I had some users log into Workstation Only, then Browse the Novell Server and see everything fine. I have run DSRepair, Vrepair, update DS to 7.62c. Ran DSTrace logs...In the Sys$log.err I have several instances of: Policy Manager: Update Connection License failed (for individual user objects). The DSRepair.log file have 7 instances referencing my Server object (with the correct ID) ERROR: Invalid server ID in backlink obituary is purged. I have run the DSTRACE with the +j switch and nothing changes. Also, as another test this morning, thinking maybe the script file is corrupt I deleted all entries in the script, saved the file, tested my ID, logged in properly, tested with another standard user and attached properly to the server, browsed to the server, saw the volumes, browsed down thru, attempted to manually map a drive (with both Netware map a drive and Microsoft's Map a drive), received error that the drive was unaccessable!...I could go on more but for now I will quit.....I'm sure I have lost your attention by now! :-) Has anyone out there seen something like this?
