Sometimes files are not closed on NW 6.5 server when opened from Terminalserver W2008 R2 64-Bit with Novell Client 2 SP1

Hello all.

Environment: Novell 6.5 SP 8 TCP/IP
Windows 2008 R2 64-Bit Server 6.1.7600 (no Service Pack 1) Novell Client 2
SP1 for Windows Server 2008 R2 running as terminalserver, no domain
controller, no IP virtualization

When users login to the terminalserver they can properly run software from
the Novell server volumes. They always use logoff to properly close their
session. They do not disconnect where the files remain open on the Novell
server.
But still sometimes files are kept open on the Novell server. I can see this
in the Netware 6 console monitor.
Since these are also locking files kept open that prevents to start the
software next login this is a major issue.
It seems to me that every login will create a new connection on the NW
server.

I tried to reproduce the error but could not see why and when this occurs.

Any idea?

Thanks,
Michael

How have you set File Caching and level 2 oplocks?

Also, make sure you are runing the lestest version of that client, IR5, as it fixes many file handling issues.

Hello Anders.

Yesterday I had again the problem that files where locked. Also I can see
that the user session from the terminal server sessions seems not to be
closed on the Novell Server. There were about 10 - 20 connections from
theses users in the Netware Console Monitor.

Hi Anders.

Nope. It was the older Client. I updated it today and will have a look if
this helps.

Thanks a lot
Michael

OK. FWIW, IR5 seem to have fixed a lot of issues.

Re: Sometimes files are not closed on NW 6.5 server when opened from Terminalserver W2008 R2 64-Bit with Novell Client 2 SP1

Hi Anders.

Until now no more problems!

But I have antoher question:

Is it possible on an W2008 R2 Terminal Server to configure the console
session to auto logon (NDS & Windows). But the RDP users should still have
their novell & windows logon screen.
I need to permantely run one program that is not available as service.

Thanks,
Michael

OK. Can you please repost it as a root message? This way it will get
more attention, whilst I look for an answer.
