NOVELL CLIENT 4.83 PROBLEM
We have recently been made aware of a problem caused by the latest Novell client 4.83 for NT, 2000, and XP workstations. When the NPL RunTime attempts to access a file, an I-90 error is generated.
The Novell website has published a technical article that addresses a similar problem with a different product and has offered a patch to correct the problem.
Do a search on Document 2961866 or nt483pt1.exe on the Novell website. There is no special login or password required.
Download nt483pt1.exe. It's a self-extracting zip file. Unzip it into a temporary directory and read the .TXT document regarding installation.
Testing here at Niakwa and reports from the vendors in the field confirm that this does appear to correct the problem. Of course sites with this problem should test their application with the patch applied.
5.10 UPGRADES ARE EASIER
How? Universal (no return) Upgrades no longer require a Replacement Gold Key - the existing Gold Key is merely updated with new information. (This feature only allows upgrading a 4.2 or higher Gold Key - prior revisions require replacement upgrades or new purchases.)
Also, steps to perform an upgrade have been simplified and speeded up. Please see the NPL Universal Upgrade section of the Installation Guide for more information.
So don't hesitate to order your Universal Upgrade today!
