Is the keyboard unresponsive after acpidrv.psm is loaded?
Well, then your NetWare 6.5 server has probably lost track of the installed hardware, their assigned interrupts, and so forth.
If your server is accessible by RConsoleJ, do so. Make a copy of
c:\nwserver\startup.ncf, and issue this command:
Restore the original
c:\nwserver\startup.ncf and reboot the server. Use this opportunity to create online backups of
c:\nwserver\servcfg.*. These files change only if you add or remove hardware, or in my case experience file corruption.
If you haven’t configured RConsole, then try this:
Reboot the server the hard way. Once
server.exe is giving you a chance to abort the booting, do so. Make a backup of
startup.ncf and comment out the load line for
server.exe in your usual fashion. Be careful not to hit that power button. Issue the
hdetect -MIR command. Restore the original
startup.ncf, make an online backup of
servcfg.*, and restart NetWare.
