Novell Client 2 (IR5) for windows 7 issue 8884 error code

System is a mixture of NW6.5 NW6.0SP5

I am having troublese with Windows 7. After installing Novell Client 2 (IR5) I can log onto the network successfully, with all drives mapping listed in the login script connectly properly. After that the login fail every time with the following error message:

LOGIN-LGNWNT32-890: The specified server is unknown.
LOGIN-LGNWNT32-430: The following drive mapping operation could not be completed.
[ROOT H:=WHS_FP01\VOL1:\VOL1\STAFF\ADMIN]
The error code was 8884.

Can anyone help me please? Thanks

Re: Novell Client 2 (IR5) for windows 7 issue 8884 error cod

Just adding some more information to the post:
I can successfully login every time if the Tree/Context/and server details are set to NOT save after a successful login (via the Client properties).
But this would mean that the user would have to populate these fields every time they login - which obviously is not ideal.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

WHS_FP01\VOL1:\VOL1\STAFF\ADMIN

Is that the correct path? Both the volume and the first directory are called VOL1 ?

Can we see the complete login script please?
