We are using a win2003 server with ntbackup to backup data from a novell
server. This works fine as long as the files on Novell not are in use. If
they are in use ntbackup crashes and reboots the 2003 server.

Here is an example:
Warning: Unable to open "P:\VOL3\Notes\Tommy\data\bookmark.nsf" - skipped.
Reason: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by
another process.

Are there any settings (timeouts or something) on the Novell Server or on
the Windows 2003 server Novell Client that can be configured that would help
