As the title says we upgraded from Netware 6.5 SP5 to SP8 with less problems. Now we seem to have a problem with the boot order of the NLM's that are triggerd from autoexec.ncf. No problems with SP5. We had some server crashes because of some electricity tests. So maybe that had caused some corruption? Now it seems that slpda, ndpsm and dhcpsrvr is not loading automatically after booting the server, while there is no problem doing it manual. It seems that I have to change the boot order of the NLM's in the autoexec.ncf after an upgrade from SP5 to SP8?

This is the autoexec.ncf of the server:
