View Full Version : Long shot, nowhere else to turn...

Howdy,

I've got nowhere else to turn and understand this is a long shot but I
thought I would try a post here. Endless Googling has not been fruitful.
First, I am not Novell savvy.

There is an established and working Novell network at a family member's
small business. It was set up 5-10 years ago. There is no documentation
or software available from the original company that set it up -- in
fact the set up company does not even exist anymore.

One of the computers died and I have been trying to set up a
replacement for them. I installed the Novell client on the machine, but
I do not know how / where to configure it to get it to join to the
existing network on boot. I know the eDirectory / tree name, etc but not
where to specify them. Maybe I am missing an important software
install?

I know the right answer is to find someone who is skilled in this area
but there just aren't funds available.

I also know I have provided almost no information that someone could
use to help guide me on this, I guess I'm just hoping for some pointers
for things/places to look. There machines are running XP and 4.91
client. The computer is otherwise functional, and has working internet.

Thanks for any tips so I can get this nightmare off my back ( lol )

You might want to post this in the forum:

novell.support.open-enterprise-server.client.windows

You'll get help in there, this forum is a non Novell support forum,
just for chattin, etc. :-)
