Microsoft Mail on Netware 6.5 or file lock problem
Posted on 2006-05-20
I recently purchased a new Hp server with Netware 6.5 to replace an aging Dell with Netware 5.0. I explained to the company I purchased the server from that I run several legacy applications that have worked in both the 3.2 and 5.0 versions. I wont go into how poorly the migration went or my other complaints about the company that did it (they came highly recommended by Novell) One of these applications is Microsoft Mail which we use as an internal mail system. I know it should be replaced but it has worked well in the past and I only get enough money at the end of the year for one big purchase (this year it was a new file server, last year a complete data rewiring, etc.) I am having two problems. One is that the flag.glb file believes I still have the Microsoft Mail administrator program open. I cant delete or rename this file and I am told that it is locked by me (the account with the Admin ability). No amount of server rebooting will unclock the file. I have tried to reinstall MM but launcing the Admin utilty gets me the same error message. Any help would be appreciated.
