At the end of this post, you will find a copy of the login script results screen and the login script. I've used bold+color to assist in readability.I hope this does not violate any taboos.

I have two probs that I would like some advice on, pls.
[Prob#1] The drive mapping error as shown in bold+red below. I am logging in to the net as the administrator. It is really strange that the script produces an error mapping me to the SYS volume, but will map me OK to VOL1 on the same BMGR server. I notice from the results text that the script tries to map to BMGR's SYS before it authenticates to that server. Shouldn't the MAP command cause (or wait for) the authentication to be performed?

[Prob#2] Why does the external script file not get opened by the (main) login script?

I am using Novell's client v4.91-SP1. All servers are NetWare v6.0-SP5

Pls (wishing hopefully) don't ask me to do an LDAP dance. I've never had to pay attention to it before on this small network. The only thing recently changed is the client version.

Tx for the assist.
