You can install LAN Manager MS-DOS workstations from diskettes or over the network (OTN). During OTN installations and upgrades, LAN Manager is copied from a network installation share on a LAN Manager server. This sharename and the files contained in it are created by the NPREP.EXE program.
This article explains the use of this program in a 3Com 3Server.
The 3Com 3Server architecture does not allow running the NPREP program, so all necessary software (or the normal LAN Manager server software) is installed automatically from the tape when you install the LAN Manager software on your 3Com server.
You must complete some manual steps to put the 3Server in the same state that a regular LAN Manager server is in after running NPREP.
- Create the NINSTALL share.
From either the command line or from the NETADMIN screen, create a share called NINSTALL that points to <lanroot>\NINSTALL.
- Assign the permissions to that share.
From either the command line or from the NETADMIN screen assign USERS and GUESTS, Read and eXecute permissions to the files contained in the previous share.
Once you have done this, you can perform the steps on page 83 of the "Microsoft LAN Manager Installation and Configuration Guide" to create your configuration templates and network installation disks.
