what nwclient are you using? where is the roaming profile to be stored? have
you set policies so you dont end up with 2gig profiles (especially ie cache
& temp files)?


here is a very small BASIC list of things to start with once you complete
this
list then come back if you have further issues. Yes, that means complete
this list .....

make sure you have all the post sp4 w2k patches

make sure DS is clean & healthy

make sure you are using the latest nwclient & patches
support.novell.com/filefinder

make sure you have the server updated to the latest patches & oplocks level1
& 2 are set correct

SLP is setup properly on the server, & distributed properly to workstations
via dhcp

DNS setup properly

that speed/duplex on *everything* is hardset, & hardset correctly

latest drivers for everything (nic/chipset/controller/etc)

check cables, make sure everything is cat5e certified, not using flat
cables/cat3/etc (ive seen it in a lot of places)

purge all volumes & turn off compression

make sure there is more than 10% free on EVERY volume

make sure bios/firmware to everything (server/raid
cards/switches/workstations/etc) up to date

We are using NWclient 4.9b. The roaming profile are to be
store on a NetWare 6.0 service pack 3 server (NSS vol)/
NetWare 4.11 server (traditional vol).
For testing we are using an small user profile.
