XP Client 4.90 will not 'see' NDS in Netware 4.01
Posted on 2004-10-02
The company I work for has two servers, one running windows sql something or other and the one I have to babysit, Netware 4.01, both tied to the same router. My problem is that two years ago I had the first computer with XP and 4.01 would not allow me to make any changes to the users' rights, etc. using the Microsoft client for Netware (it said I was not logged in to NDS), so I installed Novell Client (I believe 4.83) and everything was fine. I later upgraded to 4.90 and had a real fit trying to get it to 'see' the 4.01 server, saying that the tree and context are not present. I played with the settings somewhere and got it to work, but I did not write it down. Now, we have upgraded all of our computers to XP sp2 using Neware Client 4.90 sp2, and none of them 'see' Netware 4.01. Can somebody help please?
Caveat: No, upgrading to a newer OS is not an option, it will not improve the boss's golf game in any way.
