  2. 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.
