We purchased Novell netware 5 in 1997.  Today on the system console screen we used the command set time october 29 2058    instead of 2008    When using DSREPAIR we are not able to log in as network administration in order to change the timestamp back to 2008. Each time we log in we get error code -601  and a message  saying  it cant find the object on our server as it searches for the root replica

Are you specifying the full context to the admin name?  That's the common problem if you are trying to repair timestamps or declare a new epoch...

.admin.context is what you want to use.

I actually kicked myself for not suggesting it sooner in this wacky thread :P

Specify the full context and I'm sure your 601 error will go away ;)

Novell has run essentially trouble free for years so we are extreme novices at its inner workings. By shear luck we stumbled on to the corerect full context  wording and once we entered that the datestamp went like clock-work. Thanks
