Re: NSS vs. Traditional

Netware 6.5 SP3 with the post sp3 server.exe and nss patch is rock solid
here with Traditional and NSS volumes.

Re: NSS vs. Traditional

Traditional should be avoid with OES and NetWare 6.5 because lots of
services will only run on NSS.

Re: NSS vs. Traditional

Once you add the post SP3 updates (server.exe and NSS) SP3 is not at
all 'instable'.

Further, adding TFS to the mix (by default you will install NSS
volumes) will grab more memory and also there are features that are not
supported in TFS (this is increasingly the case).

put the 3a patch and the nss patch back on. ignore the total cache
buffers unless you have a performance problem with the server

As this is stable now, IMHO most of your customers would appreciate a
SP3a. <hint> 😉

Re: NSS vs. Traditional

I hear you, but doubt we will see it -- there is a lot of 'corporate'
resistance to 'a' releases -- then again, there was an SP1b for NW 6.5
-- but that was for security, not something as 'minor' as memory
handling or stability <shrug>.

Not what I wanted to hear, but clear as daylight 😞

IMHO better some 'a's and 'b's than buggy SPs in download area.


Thanks, Rudi.

No argument here -- heck, NW 4.11 SP6a, or NW 5.0 SP6a, or NW 6.5 SP1b
all made it to daylight and represented excellent choices as 'tweaks'.

RAM handling and stability are valuable things, aren't they?

Might be worth an 'a' in stead of this

So I think I miss you here, somehow?

Re: NSS vs. Traditional

Rudi, basically, I'm agreeing with you, just recognizing a bit of a
sense of 'powerlessness' on some issues...
