Hello to All,

I have a recurring issue with NetWare 6.5 SP4 and CLIB & NAMED abends.
At one point I did have a case open with Novell. We replaced the server
hardware (planned) and the issue did not occur for several months and
the case was closed.

We are seeing issues with this server again. I have a named.run from a
load of named -dl 2 but it is quite large (11MB). Upon review of that
log I noticed that approximately 3 days prior to the last abend the
system stopped logging. After the server abended and was re-started the
logging continued.

Thanks in advance
Wayne
