I recently got this problem in my organization. When i try to add new XP drivers via Imanager and Manage Broker, i get this error "failed to update database"

This problem did come up after another iprint problem that we hade, that we was unable to Browse for new drivers, This problem
is described as Novell TID 10100923. This one was solved!

We have also upgraded to Imanager version 2.5
The Netware 6.5 version is 6.5 SP2.

Any ideas?

    Make sure that you have the (reasonably) latest iPrint client on your workstation. This solves the majority of teh printer upload issues with iManager.

    Since you said that you upgraded iManager recently, ensure that your HTTPSTK and PORTAL NLMs are the correct versions.

    Just saw this TID on Novell's site and it appears to fit your description perfectly:

    You may want to check into why you haven't gotten past SP2, since NW6.5 is now at SP5, which was released in January.

    Often, the source of annoying problems like this is not being current on your SPs and patches.

    My 2 cents.

    We are planning to upgrade to SP5 in a few weeks.

    I will get back to this question if it did not solve the problem.

    If it's not fixed by the SP update, it could be because of a Microsoft hotfix, suddenly not allowing a minor "illegal use of quotes" Java error.  See if this TID fits your situation:
