We have 6 Novell OES NetWare 6.5 sp7 servers at our headquarters. Two are GroupWise 7 sp3 and the rest are file servers. We have the same version file servers at 12 remote locations. The 4 headquarters servers have one master replica and 3 read-write replicas. Each of the remote servers is in its own partition with read-write replica.

One (and only one) of the remote servers makes between 50-100 connections per day to the master and read-write replica servers at headquarters. These connections do not clear by themselves, they just keep adding up. I can clear them manually.

No connections to the GroupWise servers or any of the other remote servers. The headquarters servers show only one connection to that remote server. All the other remote servers show between 3-6 connections to the headquarters replica servers.
