Problems with drive mappings, NMAS created problem.
Posted on 2006-11-08
We have a computer that had nc4.91sp2 loaded. No problems. Changed the IP address from class C to class D. This process during login caused the NMAS related internal errors. The tried to remove nmas simply by uninstalling NMAS via Add/remove programs. Since then, we are getting problems with mapping drives to our 2 server.
Server 1, Drive Mappings
Server 2, Drive Mappings
Typically after a computer restart, it all appears to map okay but when you browse my computer, it has F as server2\sys: instead of server1\sys. Q is also mapped to server2\sys:. Another scenario is that F may be mapped properly but then the first mapping attempted in the login script to server2 does not work.
We have tried the TID to remove the Windows\system32\novell\nici data, uninstall nici, uninstall nmas. No system. We get the groupwise error on file ccwin32.dll or something like that that another TID talks about being an incomplete NICI uninstall.
We also tried reinstalling the 4.91 client with all latest public patches and then as someone recommended uninstall via add/remove programs in this order: NICI, NMAS. We received an error when trying to remove NMAS.
We do not need NMAS. How do we properly and completely remove all remnants of this program. What registry items need to be removed so it is not seen or used at all.
How do we fix the drive mapping problems.
Windows XPsp2 is on the Dell laptop.
