Simple shared and mapping directory

Hi,

I'm new with netware and I have searched in the documentation for the information that I need, but it's seem it's a little bit difficult for to understand.
I just need information on how to shared directory, and create a mapping from the client side. The client is using netware too.

Can somebody help with some simple instruction on how to do this?

I already setup the server, volume, and user. I also did setup the netware client.

Many thanks
Hari

Re: Simple shared and mapping directory

I get this below information for the server side.
How about on the client side? Can anybody help with some simple instruction?
I'm going to use dos with netware client on the client side.

Mizano,

It is preferred that you post in the forums instead of private messaging...that way the knowledge gets shared more. Here is a link that may help: https://www.novell.com/documentation/linux_client/pdfdoc/login/login.pdf

I don't know your experience level, so some of this you may already know, but I'll put it all in there just in case.

What you need to do is create a login script on the container that holds your users. For example, if your eDirectory tree looks like this:

o=COMPANY
ou=Office1
ou=Office2

And you have users created in both Office1 and Office2, you might want to create a login script for each office. That is how I have done it here. So you would need to login to iManager, make sure you are looking at Roles and Tasks, and select Directory Administration > Modify Object. Then select the container (Office1 or Office2). Under the General tab for that container, you will see Login Script. Select that and you will have a screen where you can enter the contents of the Login Script for that container. The link I provided has information about the contents of the Login Script. It can be used to do a lot of things. But it could be as simple as mapping a few drives. Say you have the following setup:

server = MyServer
volume 1 = VOL1
volume 2 = VOL2
server resides at o=COMPANY

You could create the following mappings:

MAP J:=.MyServer_VOL1.COMPANY:
MAP K:=.MyServer_VOL2.COMPANY:

If the login script for ou=Office2 contains the above two mappings, then any users whose account are in the Office organizational unit will get those mappings when they login to eDirectory.

Hope that helps. If you have additional questions, please post them in the forum.

DOS? Really? I'm not even sure you can find Novell client software
for that anymore. What operating system and version is running on the
PC that will connect to the server? What version of the Novell client
are you using?

As I mentioned before, the login script will automate the mapping for
you. Nothing you really have to do on the client side to map the
drive. If you run Windows, all you have to do is install the
appropriate Novell Client for Windows, login to the network, the login
script runs, and the drives are mapped. Done. If you don't create
the login script, you could also do the mapping manually by logging
into the network with the Novell Client for Windows, and then right
click on the red N in the system tray and select "Novell Map Network
Drive".

If this isn't sufficient, please provide a complete description of
your setup including versions.

Ken

Re: Simple shared and mapping directory

Hi Ken,

I managed to get the dos client working, and I can login to the server.
However, look like now I get an access right problem, I could not copy a file to server or create a folder and file.
I did add trustee to the folder using imanager.

Many thanks
Hari

Did you do so under File/folders, properties, rights?

Re: Simple shared and mapping directory

I'm using the dos client that mention here https://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/tools/13555.html
I used the VLM one since the DW271e.exe didn't work for me.
Using VLM I was able to login to the server.

Yes, I'm using the same user name, admin. Both on windows and dos,
Is it allow to login from another workstation with the same user?

OK. I have not used the DOS client in 10+ years. Assuming you have a
mapping to sys:public, run rights.exe in the network dirctory to see
what rights you have.

Re: Simple shared and mapping directory

yes I mapping to sys:public, but when run the rights.exe I get a message "the specified folder or directory cannot be found.."
if I run the rights.exe on the root driver it's working.

OK. Map say X to sys:public and try x:rights.exe

Hi Anders,

I have successfully connected the dos client to netware server.
I can create, copy, delete etc on the server.

Thanks anyway for your help, and every body who already spare their time reading my thread 🙂

Cheers

I'm glad it is working. I've been out for a few days and just now
catching up. And I see that Anders jumped in on this thread. He
knows a heck of a lot more than I do.
