Mapping problems with CL2SP3IR1

I installed the latest client for Win 7, CL2SP3IR1, and am having difficulties with the mapping of drives. Previously, I had installed CL2SP2IR5 and had no problems.

I have 3 servers, 2 NW6.5 and 1 NW5.1 all fully patched. I did the following tests:

I logged into Win7 as an administrator user. When I do this, there are no mappings to the NW5.1 server. It isn’t a matter of the 1st 5 or 6 mappings failing, it is an issue of which server is being mapped. The 1st 3 and the 5th mappings are to the NW5.1 server and these fail. The 4th, 6th and remaining drives are mapped to the NW6.5 servers and these succeed. In all cases, the NW5.1 mappings fail.

I then attempt to log in using the ‘Red N’ in the system tray. In this case, all of the drives map. If I look at one of the NW5.1 mappings (which had initially failed), it initially looks good. However, if you drill down 1 level, the contents of that directory are displayed as the contents of the entire volume instead of the contents of that directory.

I then logged in as a non admin user. When I do this, all mappings occur. However, when I look at the contents of one of the drives on the NW5.1 system, it is actually giving me another drive, SYS.

I have back revved to CL2SP2IR5 and all works correctly, so I don’t think it is an issue of my machine.

I tried using this client on a Win8 machine. I have not done extensive testing on this system. However, similar problems occur. None of the NW5.1 drives with explicit mapping are mapped. Errors are displayed, ‘The specified server is unknown’, ‘The following drive mapping operation could not be completed’, ‘The error code was 8884’. One of NW5.1 drives gets mapped as a search drive, but shouldn’t be. All of the NW6.5 drives are mapped.

Which syntax are you using for your mappings? An example or two will
help us, especially if you include the search mapping that now gets the
NW5.1 drive in it now.
Do you have SLP configured?

Are you fully IP on these servers? Is there any IPX left?

Have you tried to map via eDir Volume name? I do that since ages since
I had problems with the server\volume approach and AFAIK that is the
recommended mapping method.

I tried just 1 drive, q:

I'm not sure of the correct syntax for the edirectory mapping.

I tried
map q:=.tci_svr_download.tci.tci:

and it just gave errors - with leading '.', with trailing '.' , with leading and trailing '.', and with no leading or trailing '.'

Eventually, I did
map q:=tci_svr_download:

and it works on the XP

but I get the following results on the Win 7 machine:

Drive Q: is not defined.

no error, no warning, just Q: is not defined.

map q:=.tci_svr_download.tci.tci:

This should work, assuming tci is both an OU and an O - not a tree name, which you don't have to provide. If tci is an O and a treename but not an OU it ought to be
map q:=.tci_svr_download.tci:

Thanks for the syntax. But it didn't work. Here is the result of the login using the syntax provided by you.
LOGIN-LGNWNT32-440: The operation was attempted on an invalid drive.
LOGIN-LGNWNT32-440: The operation was attempted on an invalid drive.
Drive J: is not defined.
Drive K: is not defined.
Drive L: is not defined.
Drive M: is not defined.
Drive O: = TCI_COMM_SYS: \
Drive Q: is not defined.
Drive R: = TCI_COMM_MAIL: \
Drive R: = TCI_COMM_MAIL: \
LOGIN-LGNWNT32-923: An unexpected error has occurred: 1 (8836).
S2: = Y:. [TCI_COMM_SYS:PUBLIC \]
Drive O: = TCI_COMM_SYS: \

The new syntax is for the Q: map. I did test the new syntax on the cl2sp2ir5 client & the new format worked OK. The mappings to J:, K:, L: & M: are all to the 5.1 server with the old format. The 8836 is a result of mapping a search drive to the 5.1 server using the old format.

Additional Information. I am logging into a 6.5 server. I changed this to log into the 5.1 server to see if the mappings would work properly and they did not. I got exactly the same results logging into the 6.5 server or the 5.1 server.

Alright, I don't think there's anything more we here can do for you. Either use SP2IR5 and wait for a new client release, or log an SR with Novell.

Thanks Andrew. I appreciate your time. I have already back-revved to SP2IR5. I couldn't risk running with SP3IR1.

Similar problems happened a long time back with an older version of client2. On a 5.1 server, data would be lost. Copying files was at your own risk. End of files would be all over the place. But they fixed these problems with later releases of the client. And now it has resurfaced again.

If you back rev the client, the documentation indicates that you may have trouble with NICI and that you should remove it. I am writing this for anyone who reads this thread to be aware of potential problems caused by NICI.

Brilliant! Thanks for reporting back, hopefully this will be a stable code base for everyone now.
