NW 6.5 SP5 Server Error Log

Can someone assist me on this. I'm getting the following error messages
in my Server Error Log and can't figure out why.

3-13-2006 10:05:00 am: SERVER-5.70-3651
.XXX_NET.XXX_NET.)
POLICY MANAGER - (5.00-015): Unable to obtain a connection license
unit. Operation will continue. Contact your network administrator to
verify that licensing services are functioning properly and that license
units are available. Error # C0001006 (smith.XXX_NET.XXX_NET.)

XXX_NET.XXX_NET.)
POLICY MANAGER - (5.00-015): Unable to obtain a connection license
unit. Operation will continue. Contact your network administrator to
verify that licensing services are functioning properly and that license
units are available. Error # C0001006 (doe.XXX_NET.XXX_NET.)

I've tried reinstalling the server license via iManager and User Licenses
via NWAdmin and still getting these messages. Good thing though users
are not having any problems logging in.

I've purchased NW 6.5 with 5 user license and 5 add'l licenses.
The initial 5 user license that came on the CD is called user NWAdmin
is "Novell+NetWare 6 Demo User+650", and my add'l license is
called "Novel+Netware 6 User+650". Therefore, I have a total of 10 user
licenses.

Re: NW 6.5 SP5 Server Error Log

How many actual active user objects do you have? I suspect your demo
license has expired so you only have 5 real licenses, OR you have more
than 10 active users and those two you quote are using grace logins.

Today, four active users. I was told that Novell comes with 5 users
licenses and they call it demo and will not expire as long as you have a
valid serial number.

Re: NW 6.5 SP5 Server Error Log

Are you aware that every user object that logs in consumes a license
semi-permanently? That is, until they don't log in for 90 days? So if
your 4 active users are just the ones currently logged in, but you have
more than 6 others who have logged it at any time in the last 90 days,
then indeed your 10 licenses are used up.

Look at the user license objects with Nwadmin or iManager, how many does
it say are in use?

Re: NW 6.5 SP5 Server Error Log

NWadmin reports 5 users current being used.
iManager reports reports 1 licenses being used.
Monitor reports 4 users.

These utilities never report the same number, really strange.

Is there a way to clear those 90 day users? Or is there something wrong
with NWClient 4.91 SP2 running Windows XP; connecting via IP.

I did some poking around on these workstations since not all workstations
are the same, and found that the ones that is generating these errors has
Symantec Internet Security (Antivirus & Firewall). The firewall feature
is disabled. Maybe there's something in this product causing problems,
where as the other workstations running Symantec Antivirus 2004.

Then delete all licensing objects relating to that server - NLS_LSP,
server and user licenses, server and user license envelopes. Run a local
dsrepair, then Setupnls, then reinstall server and user licenses.

Yes, you can do that in iManager.

Not that I'm aware of, no.

Re: NW 6.5 SP5 Server Error Log

Done what you asked, removed/deleted all licenses and reinstall. Still
getting the same error.

Is there something I need to configure in Symantec Internet Security to
allow proper communication to the server? I'm using NWClient 4.91 SP2.

I have no idea, you'd have to ask them. Can you try disabling or
uninstalling it on a problem PC and see if that helps?

What if one of the problem users login in from working machine, does the
problem move with the user or stay with the PC?
