Properties for IPX Directory Services Shown Intermittently

Article ID: 172482

Article Last Modified on 6/28/2004



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft SNA Server 3.0 Service Pack 4
  • Microsoft SNA Server 4.0



This article was previously published under Q172482


SYMPTOMS

When you view the Properties tab of an SNA Server computer in SNA Server Manager, the IPX Directory Services Properties tab may be intermittently visible or invisible when it should not be.

CAUSE

Information about what transports an SNA Server computer is using is stored in both the configuration file (Com.cfg) and the Windows NT registry. If they are out of sync (that is, a change is not saved to the configuration file), the registry settings should take precedence, but these settings are not being queried by Snapage.dll and Snaole.dll when deciding what property pages to display.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SNA Server versions 3.0 and 3.0 SP1. This problem was corrected in the latest SNA Server version 3.0 U.S. Service Pack. For information on obtaining this Service Pack, query on the following word in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (without the spaces):

S E R V P A C K


MORE INFORMATION

With the fix applied, Snapage.dll and Snaole.dll query the registry entries.
