Windows 2008 Server & Novell

Recommended Posts

I am trying to recreate a environment that is currently running on Win2K.

 

Windows 2000 server with multiple drive mappings to two Novell file servers, including one with an encrypted mount point. A service on Win2K scans multiple paths to the two Novell servers and takes an action when particular files are detected. Novell Client 4.9 installed. Service runs as a Domain user. Corresponding Novell account has rights to both Novell servers.

 

Windows 2008 R2 Enterprise server attempting to make same connections. Novell Client 2.1 SP 1 (IR5). Connections established at RDP logon. Directories visible, file manipulations read/write/delete work just fine. The service is started as a Domain user and attempts to scan the paths but gets invalid path name error.

 

There are differences in the registry for the two servers. The Win2K server has the attached additional entry in the registry that the Win2008 does not. Does anyone have any ideas?

I can't open the word .doc. Try to re-upload in docx format.

 

That being said, the SMB protocol that Windows Server 2008 R2 uses vs. Server 2003 is completely different. You probably going to need to get a DEV to review the service that was written and re-tune it for Server 2008.

 

That being said, if the paths are correct or still the same it should be fine but.... for all you know it could be something as simple as a backslash that is messing up the entire process.

 

Just curious, what action is taken when the service detects certain files? Does it delete them? Copy them? You might be able to replicate the service using a script.
