Hanging logins and errors in drive mapping
Posted on 2004-09-20
I am having connectivity issues with Novell. I am running Netware 5.1 sp5, 4.9 and 4.83 sp2 client with the majority of my workstations running 2000 or XP. I have a few running 98. I have workstations that can log on to the server no problem. Others experience a hanging log in box listing the mapped drives but never authenicating or logging in...freezes and you have to reboot....and the same problem continues. Others will map partially--not all drives are mapped according to login scripts. I didin't have this problem until I updated some of my labs to XP from 2000 and some from 98 to 2000. ( I have approximately 225 computers with approximately 80% running either 2000 or XP.) I have 250+ connection licenses.
It is drivng me insane. Seems to get worse as the day goes on as users are added.Can't tell if it is connectivity across my network or a server or client problem. I have to solve this so instruction can continue at my district. My elementary teachers are ready to kill me....if I don't fix this...and quick.
