Using MS-DOS MTA and Dispatch with Dynadmin results in a failure to connect to a Netware 4.11 server. The following sample is from External.log:

03-31-97 13:27 Dynamically connecting T: to FNIO-XDV-
03-31-97 13:27 An unknown error code (914:ec) was returned.
03-31-97 13:27 Reading master file. Could not connect to drive.


The NLSP that ships with NetWare version 4.11 causes Dynadmin to fail. The Novell utility, NLSP, provides a link state approach to routing and is automatically enabled during a NetWare 4.11 installation. This link state routing protocol provides backwards compatibility and, in theory, should operate successfully in a mixed NLSP and RIP routing environment. Novell Technical Support has been made aware of this issue.


Disable the default NLSP routing on NetWare 4.11 file servers. This is accomplished through editing the Autoexec.ncf file and running UNLOAD IPXRTR at the file server console or by selecting RIP in the INETCFG utility. The server must then be restarted.
