License Manger Not Found on NetWare Server

122 Views, 4 Replies

I have had the license manager running on a NetWare server for almost 3
years. Recently I have begun having problems with the license manger.
Changes to the server would include changing from NetWare 4.11 and service
packs to NetWare 5.0 and service packs to NetWare 5.1 and service packs.

Users will all of a sudden receive that error message that the hardware
lock is not found. I trie to query the license mananger and it is not
found. Looking at the server, adskelmd.nlm still appears to be running. I
unload and reload the NLM and all is back to normal. Any ideas why the
license manager keeps losing its connection?

I have also recently had trouble loading the license manager when the
server is restarted. License manager unable to load, hit any key to
continue. I can then manually load the NLM and it will work.

Any help would be appreciated.

Are you by chance running tcp/ip on the nw server? If so this is not supported by the
adlm. It will sometimes work, but it's not supported. Even if you are running tcp/ip and
ipx/spx it "tends" not to work reliably. I've not tested it on nw5 but I've heard that if
you go back to ipx/spx only on the nw server the adlm will function correctly.

We are running both IPX and TCP/IP on the server. We are using TCP/IP for
the servers to communicate with each other over the WAN. I'll have to check
with the corporate office to see if we can change that setup.

David,

The behavior you describe is often encountered when Netware Servers are
marginal in RAM resources. Netware is going to give the file system
priority to system memory resources. As for the errors encountered during
reboot, they can often be resolved by moving the adlm startup string in the
Autoexec.ncf up or down the list.

Jerry,

I have tried moving it up and down the list in the autoexec.ncf file
without success. The server has 768 MB of RAM and is not being hit that
hard to run low on resources.
