Hello,

I am new to Novell and OES so please be patient. I would greatly welcome
some advice on the following issue.

I have recently installed an OES-Linux server (TITAN) with NSS volumes. The
purpose of this server will be to store user information. The current user
information is stored in HAL5 (NW 6.0). I would like some guidance, or
solution, on how to go about achieving this. My goals are the following:

GOALS:
1.- Make the NSS volume on TITAN the home directory for users. Currently
their home directory is in the HAL5 server.

2.- Also, I would like to set it up in such a way that, in the future, when
a new user is created, their home directory will be in the OES-Linux server
(i.e.: TITAN). HAL5 will eventually be removed.

My first attempts at trying to achieve the above objectives were simply to
change the users' profile>Login Script by adding the following line:

MAP ROOT M:=TITAN\DATA:\STAFF\%LOGIN_NAME

I logged out, logged back in (as a user) and got an error telling me that:
TITAN, "the specified server is unknown." "The following mapping operation
could not be completed"

I tried to do the same thing for the Login Script of the Admin user (MAP
ROOT K:=TITAN\DATA:\) and once I logged back in I received a similar error.

One interesting thing to notice is that when I logged in as Admin and tried
to map the drive manually (i.e: My Computer>Tools>Map Network Drive...). I
was able to map the drive, however when logging in, with the edited Admin
"Login Script", I was not able to do so and got the error messages mentioned.

Another observation that might be worth mentioning is that when TITAN was
created it was placed at a level above the other servers in the tree (See
below). I am not sure whether this makes a difference or not.

Any recommendation, or solution will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,

Steve O.
