Client 4.91sp2 reboots on login

I have a stable 10 user NW6.5 sp3 network and have not made any changes in
over a year. Today, however one of the client's PC would REBOOT immediately
after you enter you password and hit enter. This pc is running Win200sp4
with out problems.
So I uninstalled the client, rebooted and reinstalled. Same
problem-immediate REBOOT.
So I took it to another connection. Same problem.
So I used a different login id. Same problem.
So I brought home to my test environment and logged in just fine. Took it
back to the office and same problem.

Re-installing windows or getting a XP box will be painful due the amount of
applications to reload.

Anyone with ideas?

Thanks for reading.

Re: Client 4.91sp2 reboots on login

Th 4.91SP2 client has at least 2 known blue screen problems. Your windows
workstation is probably configrued to reboot instead of showing the blue
screen.
Use the SP3 or the SP4 client instead.

Thanks. But I thought 4.91 sp3+ were for XP and Win2003, I am running
Win2000.

Thanks again,
PeterH

I think it is mainly a metter of Windows 2000 no longer being tested with
new clients.
However if you don't want to install SP3, there is still patches for the
SP2 client:

Especially, the "Novell Client Post-4.91 SP2 Patch Kit" contains the
patches for the known blue screen problems in SP2.

Re: Client 4.91sp2 reboots on login

For what its worth, I'm running most of my Win2K SP4 clients with
4.91SP3. No problems that I've encountered (which is why I've not moved
to 4.91SP4 on those W2K workstations).

Re: Client 4.91sp2 reboots on login

Just for info:
Turns out that the router's DHCP server stopped and the box failed to get an
IP address. Other boxes still had IP's and were connected an functional.
Who would have guessed?

Thanks for you help
