Trustees / Disk Management issues...

Hi, I wonder if anyone can help?

Have an odd situation:

2 x Netware 6.5 SP4 servers (server1 & server2)

I am logged on Admin. On Server1 I can see trustees and Netware rights in
Windows Explorer and C1 for folders. But for Server2, the Netware rights tab
is missing in Explorer and under properties, there is nothing there and
everything is greyed out. C1 displays no trustees.

Also if I try to use Disk management through C1 for Server2 I get the
following error:

"Unable to manage server Server2. The consoleone storage snapin is designed
to run with Netware 6 and later. You can only run this snapin if you are the
admin user or have admin equivalence. Either this server is not running a
compatible version of Netware, you do not have sufficient rights, or there
is a communication problem preventing access to the server."

Yet Disk Management for Server1 works fine

Seems to be to be a rights issue bit not sure where to look. Have compared
rights in C1 for both servers but cant see anything obvious. Have run
DSREPAIR but no change. Anyone any thoughts?

This indeed all sounds as if Server2 doesn't think you're administrator.
Maybe even a license issue.

However, one note: Do *NOT* use ConsoleOne to manage storage on a NW6.5
Server. That this works at all tells me you are using an outdated
ConsoleOne version, as all C1 versions shipping with 6.5 don't allow you
to do storage management of any 6.5 servers. Use Remote Manager, NSSMU
or if really necessary, iManager.
