Hi All,

I've ran into a problem today with Preboot Policy hanging on
workstations that are pxe booted.

This worked fine for a long time, now it seems to hang....

I get 'Contacting Novell Preboot Policy Service....." then 30 - 60 secs
late done.

Then that's it. End of boot.

Sometimes I don't get the 'Contacting Novell Preboot Policy
Service....." message at all.

Driving me mad.

This is OES2 Linux, with the latest and greatest patches applied and
the TID to make it work on OES2 applied... This was working on OES2
then just stopped...today....
Turn the debug to max gives this :
