SMS: Packages Not Copied to NetWare Distribution Servers

This article was previously published under Q169748


When distributing Systems Management Server packages to a NetWare distribution server, you may receive an Event ID 108 error:

108 Failed to install package to X. Verify the package server is up and running and has sufficient disk space. The SMS service account must exist on the package server and has the same password as the site server, and the service account must have admin privilege. If the package server is a NetWare server, verify the volume exists.

This event is also generated when the Everyone group does not exist on that NetWare server.


The Systems Management Server Despooler fails to set permissions on the package directory on the NetWare server because it cannot find the Everyone group.

The Despooler Log shows the following message:

NWScanObject for user or group EVERYONE; return: ffff
6/01/97 3:25:15 PM
NWScanObject for user or group EVERYONE; return: ffff
6/01/97 3:25:15 PM
