Novell client for Vista

I have 2 questions and it goes thus

a)Do we have a Novell Client for windows vista now? Got one from the
Novell site but having challenges to make it log in as my Log -In
interface after starting my workstation instaed of right clicking it
through the the task bar which is not too ideal and convenient to users
and also considering the fact that i want to deploy so many windows vista
soon on my network.What are also the challenges that have already being
encountered.

b)I suddenly discoverd that that my data Volume was de-activtaed with the
following errors and users could not log in until i did a pool rebuild.
The server gave the following error NSS-3.00-5002:pool sv001fps02 /data &
20012 (Zfsfilemap. c [32527] at block 3699326 <file block -3699326>(ZID
22178) has compromised volume integrity.Need to ensure this does not occur
again 'cos continuity is very key on my netwaork.

thanks

What version of NetWare and what patches? What kind of storage is this? Ie
standard SCSI-disks or RAID? Fibre-channel? SAN?

What service packs on 6.5? Also when you say "RAID
disk which is mirrored" is that RAID10 (1+0) os somethign else?

RAID 1 would be mirrored. RAID 0 would be two 70G drives combined into
a single 140G pool -- I'm thinking (and hoping you mean RAID 1 here).

OK. I'd start with running the RAID controller diags to check the
disks.

OK. Normally, a RAID controller will present an error-free interface to
the OS. That being said, the have been some odd issues with NSS on 6.5,
but an update (SP6) plus a rebuild should cure that.

Re: Novell client for Vista

In addition to Anders comments -- for some, the SP6 and post SP6 updates
also resolve a couple of issues with Vista and the released client.
