PC immediately shuts down when a Word or XLS file is saved or modified. .txt files can be saved or modified without problem. Appears to only be Office files.
Original configuration that worked without problem:
XP SP 3 with Novell Client 32 (4.91 SP5) with primary files storage on a Netware 6.5 Server. Login to Netware and windows 2008 domain.
Change causing problem
Added Windows 2008R2 server for primary file storage. Files moved from Netware Server to Windows server. Mapped drives (F, G, H) now point to file server. Domain is still 2008 (not R2).
Client machines had Novell Client uninstalled and do not have a problem.
Two administrator PC's still have Netware client for login and management of old server and GroupWise email server. Login is workstation only and no netware login scrips are run.
On these two machines where Client 32 remains saving an Microsoft Office 2003 file will cause the PC to immediately reboot, no blue screen, no warning.
2008 server is running DFS to replicate files to another server. I have only tested this while saving to the mapped drives. I did not test saving directly to the server outside of the DFS shares.
NOTE: files can be saved locally on the PC without problem. Only an issue when saving to 2008 server
It makes no difference if I am authenticated to one of the Netware servers or not.
Clearly the Netware client is a problem because the problem does not exist on any machine without client 32. We still need to the client to administrate the Novell servers.
All windows patches applied, and I believe I have the latest Netware client. I did a little digging online but did not find anything.
Anyone see this before or have a suggestion.
