NetWare 6

NetWare 6 Support Pack 3

Novell Distributed Print Services (NDPS), Broker Resource Management Service (RMS)


Windows XP Professional

Novell Client 4.9


Using Windows XP Professional, unable to add printer drivers to NDPS RMS using both NWAdmin and iManager.

Using NWAdmin: Added the /DisableTLSMGR switch to the NWAdmin shortcut as per TID: http://support.novell.com/cgi-bin/search/searchtid.cgi?/10054369.htm which allows browsing to the location of the driver files but when selecting the print driver and the the "OK" button the resulting action would do nothing and you would be returned to the driver selection option.

Using iManager: Once the Broker was selected and then the Resource Management tab, selecting the printer driver and then selecting "OK" nothing would happen and the driver would not be copied to the server. An HTTP 500 internal Server Error was also sometimes seen when trying to copy the drivers to the RMS.



Update the TCP stack on the server. At the time of writing this TID the latest Post NetWare 6 Support Pack 3 TCP patch is 6.07k, available from:  Novell Product Updates
