Hello

We have a problem with one of our 4 Novell Netware servers. All are the same configuration, NW65 with SP4a and they worked until now. One of the servers abended on Saturday and since then we are unable to restart it because we receive the folowing error: "Error reading load file c:\nwserver\server.exe" or if I try to start server.exe with some parameters(like -kf8 or -na -ns or -#0) "the load file c:\nwserver\server.exe is invalid Cod 5"

We have copied server.exe, server.msg, cios.nlm, libc.nlm and fatfs.nlm from the original SP4a overlay CD but without any improvements. We didn't received any errors durring the copy operations but the error at server.exe startup persist. We also swapped the memory chips in the server but with the same results. The disk system is a hardware Raid 5 and it is plenty of space(more than 800MB) available on the DOS partition.

Can someone help us ?

Thanks,

Viki

P.S. I have atached the Abend.log from the DOS partition.
