Novell Netware

NetWare is a computer network operating system developed by Novell, Inc. It initially used cooperative multitasking to run various services on a personal computer, using the Internetwork Packet Exchange (IPX) network protocol. It is hardware-independent, running on any suitable Intel-based PC compatible system, and a wide range of network cards. Products inclue NetWare Directory Services (NDS), a global directory service similar to Microsoft's Active Directory; GroupWise, an email system; ZENworks, an application configuration suite; and BorderManager, a security product. Open Enterprise Server, the current iteration, runs on a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.

Hello,

we start to do a complete roll out of windows 10 with Zenworks.
Therefore we used this very nice best practices:
https://www.novell.com/communities/coolsolutions/windows-10-best-practices-using-zcm/

If you are using roaming profiles with Novell on non-Windows shares, you have to do some special settings.
For example you have to copy a default profile and move it in the user profile folder - as descripted here:
https://www.novell.com/documentation/zenworks114/zen11_cm_policies/data/bvkn1rh.html
It you don’t do this roaming profile will not work correctly.

Now to my problem.
If I logon to the computer with this default profile the Windows 10 start menu is not working - no reaction if you klick on it.
Roaming profile on multiple PCs is working fine, except of the menu.

I already tried the "default solutions" for this problem:
1. sfc /scannow
2. powershell with $manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + '\AppxManifest.xml' ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest
3. Copy and Paste the folder C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\TileDataLayer\Database of a local working user

If I don’t follow the instruction in the link above "Assigning a Roaming Profile Policy for a User Profile ..." and let Windows create the roaming profile on the file share I don’t have a start menu problem, but I can't login to different PC -> "Group Policy Client Service failed the sign-in" Error.

Hello,
We are using a special pdf printer. This printer needs a custom defined page size (25.4x25.4mm).
Additional you have to set the TrueType Font to: Download as Softfont.
Now I have the task to distribute this to all users.
We are using NDS and so we have no GPO, but we have Loginscripts and Zenworks as software distribution.
My idea was to deploy a registry script for all users. Unfortunately I can’t found the right key. In these Keys I tried to set it:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\DevModePerUser
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\DevModes2
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers\Settings
I even tried to set it with the “Printing Defaults” of the Printer under:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Print\Printers -> Default DevMode
I did the same in the past with Windows XP and I’m sure that it worked with the Key DevModePerUser.

Any ideas how to set the settings for all users?

Thanks
Christian

Hi
I'm running a Groupwise 6.5.7 email system on Novell Netware 6.5 Support Pack Revision 08
Everyone can work fine, login to Webmail, connect mobile device via POP3 or IMAP access except for one user.
This user can login fine using the Windows Groupwise 6.5.7 client.
When I try and login to Webmail using the same username and password it fails with "Please login again. You may have typed your name or password incorrectly. Remember that passwords are case sensitive." and the Webmail monitor displays Login failed: jdupl
If I input the incorrect password on purpose I get the same failure in the browser window but the Webmail monitor now displays "Login failed: User jdupl supplied invalid password. Login rejected: Password is incorrect.  Login failed: jdupl"
So the Webmail does detect when the password is valid or not but it will not allow this user to login.
His email has also stopped synchronising using POP3 or IMAP settings on his mobile devices (Samsung Note 4 and Ipad)
I have performed a dsrepair and it shows no errors with the exception of a network error
"Found a Network Address Property on the server object and through SLP:
Address Type = TCP, data[6] = 192.168.8.115:524

I have a customer that pulled and old server out of the basement and wants to try and bring it back. It did not boot so I found a similar one (PATA Hard Drive) and the drive seemed to boot. The drive was on the secondary IDE channel and I remembered enough to load ISADISK at 170 INT F wasn't it? It loaded but still can't mount SYS.

FDISK does reflect a non-DOS partition. What else can I try?

Novell IDM Is there a report or way to easily compare Active Directory against eDirectory for users that have not migrated over?

I have a lot of accounts of users that have not changed their password and as a result have not synced the password. You might ask, why not just change force the passwords to change at next login? The boss doesn't want to do that and wants to get a report first and a way to track to see how many users have not changed their password? we want to aggressive reach out to them and hand hold all 14,000 accounts that will most likely need to change the password.

Hello,

we are running a Groupwise 2014 R2 SP1 Server. To restrict the mail traffic we are using class of service in the GWIA.
For example:
No external mail recipients are allowed except to company1.com.

These is working fine if the user is using a Groupwise mail client.

We also use for example Thunderbird or other mail clients to connect to the Groupwise Server (via IMAP and SMTP).
Here I found out that the restriction in my example above is not working.

Are the class of service not working if you are using an mail client that is connected via IMAP and SMTP?

Best regards,
Christian

I have historically been able to mount a folder on our NOVELL SLES Linux server with no problems, but recently I've run into some problems. The last view days I have been unsuccessful in being able to mount the folder. I ran "ncpcon" to try and figure out if it lost it's brain or something?

Am I typing the command wrong here or did it lose the trustee's?

When I try to save a login script in Novell, I am getting the following error message.

Unknown meaning for error number 0x1; Please call a Novell support provider.

An error Occurred writing the changes to NDS.
Some data may not have been written.

Close or Detail button, but when I click on Detail no further data exists.

Is this just something in using the deprecated client? It appears to be saving regardless?

I have inherited a groupwise server that has some users that are unable to access their mail via their smart phones while others can access them.  I have matched the settings from a working phone on a different user and the connection fails.  Is there something within the Groupwise Admin console I need to change on the users?

PUM = Privileged User Manager

Q1:
Understand PUM is used to record access to servers by sysadmins to servers (Windows, Linux etc)
with Access, Authentication, Authorization controls.  In what way is this different from TACACS
& Radius for network devices' access, authentication & authorization?

Q2:
Many switches, routers IOS or OS could not enforce complex password, password expiry, locked
after several attempts etc.  Does TACACS, Radius have these features if network admins centrally
access via TACACS or Radius?

Q3:
Anyone know if PUM has Radius kind of functionalities built in?

Q4:
Can a Windows jumphost provide the functionalities of TACACS or Radius server?


Without a subscription, can't approach principal for these clarifications

I've recently been testing out login use case experiences on my System Images before deploying.
It appears the lock screen setup has been affected; there is no password field prompted to users when the Novell Client is installed on the image.

If the Novell Client is NOT installed and you goto sleep or reboot etc. my image displays the password input field as expected just under the username field.

Is this a Win7 bug? a Novell registry edit I can modify in Win7 local security profile ? etc?

thoughts?

thanks

Need a good process for scanning Novell Netware 5.1 (thats right 5.1) servers with McAfee VirusScan 8.8. I know Netware 5.1 was supported by McAfee with Netshield, but was dropped after Novell move to the Linux type OS. Is my only course of action, to map drives and scan from a secondary system?

Hello,

we had a iSCSI connection of a Novell OES 11 SP2 to a FreeNAS 9.3 Server. This was perfect working. After an update to SP3 is the connection not possible.
We did a new setup of the connection at the YaST2 iSCSI-Initiator interface again without any success.
A server reboot hangs at the point of the iSCSI startup.

An iSCSI connection to a Microsoft or Openfiler target without any problems. We have also a lot of iSCSI connection from other servers to this FreeNAS.
This seems to be a problem between Novell OES 11 SP3 and FreeNAS 9.3.

Does anybody has an idea, how we can resolve this?

Best regards,
Trexman

We have Novell Client 2 SP2 for Windows Server 2008 (IR6a) running a Windows 2008 32-Bit terminal server. After a few hours all applications become very slow and a full disconnect is required to regain the response needed. The session disconnect fixes the problem each time, but I don't think I should have to do it. We are running legacy DOS applications that will not run in 64 Bit environment. The client listed is the latest and best for our required environment.

Is there any settings or registry changes which will help the apparent memory leak causing a reboot.
