Roger,

Thanks for explaining your environment. The Netware AdLM uses SAP to get
across routers while the TCP/IP AdLM uses native protocol IP routing. So,
your behavior could be different than the majority of customers who use the
TCP/IP AdLM. None the less, your results are intriguing. I'll see if I can
find some one who could explain the impact of the broadcast on SAP enabled
routers.

I set up a Zen object so they could get the manager loaded. When tested, it
didn't work. I changed the Zen object to add the @ symbol in front of the
environment variable for acadserver. Nothing else changed, I just edited the
field in Zen and added the @. It started working.

Jerry, I know this is a bit sneaky, but I'm desperate and not getting a germane response to this post elswhere. If you can help with this problem it would make my life easier. Got a lot of upstairs people getting uptight about this:

We are experiencing huge amounts of hardware lockouts on our Novell 4.11 server-based R13 AutoCAD system. This happens when the licenses are well below our maximum. We are running with NT4.0 workstations. I wanted to use Winmon from Rainbow to look at this system but it says it requires Netinel 5.0 or above. I downloaded 5.31 but am concerned about loading it on the server. Does anyone know if v5.31 of Netinel is compatible with R13 running on a Novell 4.11 server? Am I going to shoot myself in the foot if I load it? Appreciate any help or comments. Roger Rice

Yeah, Roger, you are being pretty tricky . Problem is that I am not a
hardware lock expert. Back in the R13 days I specialized in our Unix
products which did not use hardware locks. I can ask a couple of people who
were connected with the product and see what they have to say. It may be a
day or two before I can follow up on this.

Jerry,

Just a quick note. Since the error issues we're having aren't getting resolved the company is moving to AutoCAD LT and dumping the AutoCAD 2000 upgrades and additions. Don't know the profit margins on these products, but I'm willing to bet Autodesk just lost some money.
