I have a couple of Novell NetWare 6.5 SP8 servers that simply refuse to die. One of them can be quantum dated back to 2004, the other one dates back to 2008. Last night the Root CA expired, rendering LDAP services unavailable. Luckily, I had prepared for this event. Continue reading Renewing Root CA for Novell NetWare 6.5 SP8
I need to remind myself of running the IPP webpage in compatiblity mode in IE11 when installing printers.
Even if you specify
ipp.FQDN, IE11 will kindly enter your
FQDN into the list of domain names to show in compatibility mode. Remember to remove
FQDN from that list when you’re done.
iPrint client 5.99 seems to be the last of its kind. From now on, iPrint is an appliance. Maybe it’s time to leave Novell and their products for good.
While trying to log in on our Novell servers using Client for OES 2 SP4 IR7a on Windows 10 1709, I was greeted with:
A required network service has not started. Please check your error log for details.
The third reply of this post gave me a clue, simply run
setup.exe one more time and reboot.
Uninstallation of IR7a still gives me error
0x80070005. The Registry settings in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell was accessible to me as a regular user. Maybe the client’s uninstaller is complaining about rights in the filesystem.
I really wish for more specific error messages.
yourscript.cmd from an elevated Command Prompt window eliminated all my problems. Search for “Command Prompt” on the start menu and hold down Ctrl+Shift when you click on the menu item. Simply right-clicking on
yourscript.cmd and selecting “Run as administrator” proved to be insufficient. Creating
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell manually might also set things straight.
Well, then your NetWare 6.5 server has probably lost track of the installed hardware, their assigned interrupts, and so forth. Continue reading Is the keyboard unresponsive after acpidrv.psm is loaded?
Ever seen that dreadful error message while your NetWare 6.5 server is trying to activate the
SYS pool? I have, and I won. Continue reading NSS Free Tree block xxx is corrupt on pool “SYS”
