Questions From a Novell Newbie.
Posted on 2004-09-09
I am playing around with an old version of Novell Netware (4.11) and I've got a few questions about it's administration and management.
1. Installation. I think I have successfully installed my first Netware 4.11 however I cannot get the network drivers to load. I am using a Compaq NC3121 Fast Ethernet NIC and I have download the driver from the compaq site in a .NLM format.
During the Installation Netware does not find my network card so I try to use the third party installation. I insert the floppy with the driver but it does not fin any drivers!? It says it is look for a .LAN file but I cannot find it. What do I do from here?!
2. Administration. I believe that the administration of a netware server is done remotley from a client. What software do I need to successfully administer my Novell Server from my Windows 2K pro desktop and where do I get it from?
3. Service Packs and Patches. How do I obtain and install the latest service packs and patches for my Novell server. I believe that the Service Packs for Novell 4.11 went up to SP9!!
Thanks for your help.
