Strange nptwin95 problem

Post by shmuli » Thu, 04 Sep 2003 18:44:39

Hello all,

We have a large WAN with 30 NW51 sp5 servers located in various
cities. For the past 3 days we have encountered a problem in various
servers. Some printers which are attached to workstations and defined
by nptwin95 can not connect to the print server. Unloading and
loading the print server solves the problem until the next morning.
This problem accurse randomly, only during night, at various servers
located at different cities. We haven't made any changes in the last
2 weeks. The only process that runs in all services during the night
is the backup, but we are using 2 different backup programs and the
problem appears at servers using both programs. Does anyone have any


PS I'm sorry for my poor English, my native tongueis Hebrew (-:

Your English is better than some of the native speakers here so don't
worry <G>....

Do you have a Backup program running that sdisconnects the clients
prior to running the nightly backup procedures? A possibility worth

Are you using IPX at all? Something similar happened here. We
changed the frame type from Auto to Ethernet II and the nptwin95
failures stopped.
