-----------------------------------------------------------------

SYMPTOM

NETX.EXE displays all drives that are not NetWare drives, as Local drives,
regardless of whether they are local or mapped by another requester ( IBM's
Lan Requester).

SYMPTOM

Netx.exe will not load when using a VMB (Virtual Boot Machine) if the Dos
version is greater than v6.00.

SOLUTION

Apply NETX.EXE, 83869 bytes, 08-05-94.

SYMPTOM

Some DOS applications (ie Norton's SI.EXE) when executed so that output is
redirected to a file on the network would give garbage in the output file.
(ie. SI > F:\TEST.TXT)

SOLUTION

Apply NETX.EXE, 83869 bytes, 6-10-94.

SYMPTOM

The DOS calls "FindFirstFile" and "FindNextFile" do not work properly in a
Private DOS session (VDM). The problem occurs when trying to do DOS find file
calls inside a loop of DOS find files when the files are on different drives
(one network, one local). The same program, modified for the same drive (both
network or both local), works correctly.

SOLUTION

Apply NETX.EXE, 83885 bytes, 6-6-94.

SYMPTOM

Network drives cannot be accessed in Global VDMs after the workstation is RPL
booted.

SOLUTION

Apply NWREQ.SYS, 31764 bytes, 7-21-94.

SYMPTOM

Error SYS1039 and SYS1040 would occur and connection would be lost with Packet
Burst enabled or if using large packet size (4202). This would occur when
using a remote link product ( Lan Distance from IBM) and the NetWare Client
Kit v2.10.

SOLUTION

Apply NWREQ.SYS, 31780 bytes, 7-01-94 and PBURST.EXE From NOVLIB/05 .

SYMPTOM

When logging into a server that is not a preferred server and then loading
NWTools, the workstation will be logged out of the server it was just logged
into.

SOLUTION

Apply NWREQ.SYS, 31780 bytes, 7-01-94

SYMPTOM

Customer running IBM Lan Requester v3.0 and NetWare Requester v2.10. Customer
captures or redirects LPT1 to a NetWare Queue and LPT2 to a Lan Server Queue.
Then Executes "ENDCAP /ALL". This produces the following Trap in NWREQ.SYS

TRAP D NWREQ:CGROUP: DHL_DecrementFlobalLocks:
ip=3730, cmp WORD ptr es:[01fe], +00 es=0 therefore Invalid.

SOLUTION

Apply NWREQ.SYS, 31380 bytes, 5-26-94.

SYMPTOM

Receiving errors and a loss of connection when crossing a router when the
NetWare Client is using LIP and Packet Burst. After they boot up the OS/2
workstation and run login, the following errors occur during the login
process:

"REQ1040: Requester timed out waiting for reply from server "

"SYS2070: A program in this session encountered a problem and cannot
continue.

(more info... The system could not demand load the application's segment.
Capture is in error. For additional details type HELP SYS59244559.)"

"LOGIN-4.07 760: The utility could not execute the program CAPTURE. The
program was not found."

SOLUTION

Apply NWREQ.SYS, 31380 bytes, 5-26-94 and NWIFS.IFS, 40036 bytes, 5-26-94.

SYMPTOM

Applications that do file and record locking may appear to run slower than
expected.

CAUSE

The IFS was failing to reset a lock semiphore when it received a failed
condition on a file lock attempt.

SOLUTION

Apply NWIFS.IFS, 40084 bytes, 08-31-94.

SYMPTOM

The NWIFS.IFS would match search queries even on files which do not contain
attributes required by the search. For instance, specifying
"directories-only" in the REXX function SysFileTree did not exclude ordinary
files from the list.

SYMPTOM

NWIFS.IFS would prematurely close file handles inherited by a child process
when the parent process exits. For instance, redirecting a child process's
output to a file and calling the 'C' function execv() would cause the child
process to get an invalid file handle error because the parent process had
exited.

SOLUTION

Apply NWIFS.IFS, 40084 bytes, 6-17-94.

SYMPTOM

The first network drive (default L:) is not available until the PMSHELL.EXE is
loaded.

CAUSE

NWDAEMON.EXE was changed to be a PM application and the first network drive
was not made available until PMSHELL.EXE loads.

SOLUTION

Apply NWDAEMON.EXE, 36269 bytes, 5-26-94.

SYMPTOM

SPX applications would hang.

CAUSE

Previous revisions of SPX did not check for an illegal datastream type in an
ECB submitted to SendSequencedPacket(). SPX now returns the SPX_BAD_PACKET
error code in this situation.

SYMPTOM

SPX was sending duplicate data frames on wide area or slower networks, the SPX
parameter SEND TIMEOUT used in the NET.CFG did not function.

CAUSE

The SEND TIMEOUT parameter in NET.CFG now defaults to 500 milliseconds, with a
minimum of 100 msec and a maximum of 6000 msec. This is added to the round
trip time and averaged with the current retry delay if no timeout occurs.
When sending a retry, the current retry delay is increased by 50% for each
retry up to a maximum of 6 seconds. Send retries are now always dynamic.
Instead of returning an A400h error without aborting the connection, a send
timeout now returns A3EDh (connection aborted) and aborts the connection.

SOLUTION

Apply SPX.SYS, 15540 bytes, 09-02-94.

SYMPTOM

VDMs on RPL (Remote Program Load) workstations will only show 588k bytes of
available memory.

CAUSE

MINI.IFS was allocating real memory and not releasing it.

SOLUTION

Apply MINI.IFS, 8673 bytes, 6-23-94. The MINI.IFS is used ONLY with Remote
Program Load.

SYMPTOM

Using CX before logging in will return the following errors:

SYS3175: A program generated an access violation at 0001:09f5 CX.EXE.
SYS1811: The process has stopped.

The software diagnostic code (trap number) is 000D.

SOLUTION

Apply CX.EXE, 45408 bytes, 5-13-94.

SYMPTOM

WINOS2 SPX Database client application "Forest & Trees" would get sys3176
errors after multiple queries. NWIPXSPX.DLL was not freeing resources
properly. In WINOS2 session if an attempt was made to make an SPX connection
to a database server that was not available the WINOS2 session would hang.

SOLUTION

Apply NWIPXSPX DLL, 38736 bytes, 6-21-94.

SYMPTOM

Version 3.77 of Syscon will generate a SYS1811: Trap 000d if you delete a
user ID that is logged in.

SOLUTION

Apply SYSCON.EXE, 273468 bytes, 08-22-94.

SYMPTOM

1. Error "NWTOOLS-4.10-62 : The send command has failed" occurs if you try to
send a message to more that 64 users.
2. Nwtools will setup or capture ports LPT4-LPT9, but will not reload or
setup these ports when loading the *.NWS files.

SOLUTION

Apply NWTOOLS.EXE 565909 bytes, 7-05-94.

SYMPTOM

LOGIN.EXE exhibited problems including files using the INCLUDE command.

SYMPTOM

LOGIN.EXE would execute some lines inconsistently. If the login script had a
variety of #CMD commands, along with INCLUDE's, etc. some lines would execute
normally, some would not.

SYMPTOM

LOGIN.EXE did not correctly pass login environment variables to spawned
processes. For example, if a CMD file was called from the login script, the
CMD file could not make use of variables that had been set in the login
script.

SOLUTION

Apply LOGIN.EXE 138784 bytes, 6-01-94 & LOGIN.MSG 12086 bytes, 4-13-94.


SYMPTOM

Versions of OS/2 NCOPY prior to this patch would cause extended attribute
corruption and also would fail to release resources back to the alloc short
term memory pool on v3.x NetWare servers.

Prior versions of DOS NCOPY would fail to process extended attribute
information correclty.

SOLUTION

For OS/2 apply NCOPY.EXE 67008 bytes, 11-03-93.
For DOS apply NCOPY.EXE 249555 bytes, 10-28-93.
For both DOS & OS/2 use NCOPY.MSG (See installation instructons)

SYMPTOM

Error: CAPTURE-4.03-700: The mode, of device, , cannot be found
in the PRINTDEF database. Either specify a valid mode or create a new mode
with the specified name. This occurs when using an NDS queue object that is
set up to redirect a print job through the 4.x queue object to a 3.x print
server queue. To duplicate the error you need to define and use a Device and
Mode. This occured with capture.exe 5-05-94 that shipped with NetWare v4.02.

SOLUTION

Apply CAPTURE.4X, 105149 bytes, 09-02-94 and CAPTURE.MSG, 30953 bytes,
05-05-94. (See Installation Instructions)

SYMPTOM

The included version of CAPTURE.3X addresses issues of running login.exe from
a CALL statement in the OS/2 config.sys and hanging if a #capture existed in
the OS/2 login script. This problem occurs with the CAPTURE.EXE that ships
with NetWare 3.1x, including CAPTURE.EXE v3.75, dated 5-20-93, that ships with
NetWare 3.12.

SOLUTION

Apply CAPTURE.3X, 37103 bytes, 1-22-91. This version of capture should NOT be
used with 4.X NetWare. (See Installation Instructions)
