Odd- User login stuck

On one of my Netware 6.5 servers last week users could not login. As users tried to login the login script was stuck on attaching to server XXXX.

On the server console the users who were attempting to login all had the same file open:_netware:65.nds . The server Utilization was stuck at 39%.

I tried to clear connections to users who were stuck, but the connections would not clear. So I was forced to re-boot the server before I could really analyze it. When I downed the server it locked up. I was forced to go to debugger to finnally take it down.

Any ideas on what could have caused this?

Thanks

Phil

Re: Odd- User login stuck

My guess is that they were trying to map a drive to a server that was unavailable. Only a guess though. Have you looked through other log files?

Re: Odd- User login stuck

That file is an eDirectory stream file, typically a login script. You can see by opening it on the console:

load edit sys:_netware/65.nds

What NW 6.5 SP, and what eDir version is involved? But the most likely cause of the problem is that file was being held open by someone else, or there was an anti-virus app on the workstation or server interfering with access to it.
