Workstations On Netware Network Pause/Freeze

Workstations On Netware Network Pause/Freeze

Post by jim » Thu, 10 Jul 2003 16:41:33

Hello All,
I have a problem with my Netware 5.1/6.0 Network that
we have a mixture of Win98SE and Windows 2000 Workstations. The
problem we have is that with the Win98SE workstations is that they
seem to pause for about 5-15 seconds. No keyboard input can be done.
Mouse is not affected. No HDD activity but then the machine comes back
to life again. You can be doing anything, this will happen.
But I have noticed that this problem appears to happen mostly when I
am browsing through Windows Explorer or My Computer. As seems to be a
problem somewhere in the Computer Browsing. I have made sure all my
DNS are working properly. But in the W2K PCs they play up really bad
when you browse the network drives in My Computer/Windows Explorer. Or
even in Microsoft Word when you go to save or open a file in the file
browser. (This happens on the Win98SE PCs too.)
Before we upgraded to Netware 6.0 when we had Netware 5.1 we had
this problem.
I can pretty sure to say what ever is causing the pausing problem
in the W2K PCs is making the Win98SE workstations freeezing too. I
have tried un-installing Netware Client, re-installing Netware Client.
I have now the latest Netware Client Running. (Client 3.32 SP1 for
Win98Se and 4.83 SP1 for NT)
Service Pack 3 installed on the W2K PCs.
If anyone out there has any ideas or has had this problem before I
would really like to know what can be causing this problem.

Thanks in advance

1. RDC freezes from all workstations in small network

2. Can't see workstations via My Network Places-Entire Network-MS Windows Network-Domain

I have a SBS 2003 Standard SP2 server. I can't see any workstations
from Entire Network (see path in subject line). This server is a DC
and has DHCP enabled. NetBios is disabled. Windows Firewall is off.
Only Symantec antivirus and antispyware is installed. DNS server has
event id 4004 and 4015 posted after a server reboot on Monday. Yet
the Wednesday reboot didn't contain either of those event ids. I read
over the similar posts regarding this issue and some of the
resolutions didn't apply or I didn't understand them. Thanks in
advance for your time.
