Running BM36sp2a on NW6sp3.

We recently had our BM server hit by a power spike and when it came up
BM
wouldn't load citing licence errors, "no BM licence installed"
c0001001
errors etc.

I have seen this in the past on other boxes but dsrepair has usually
sorted
it out, but this time that had no effect. The server was up and
healthy, no
DS errors, the NetWare licenses were fine, just the BM licences could
not be
found.

I eventually managed to get things running again by manually assigning
the
BM licence certificates to the BM server in nwadmin. This was a last
effort
before reinstalling the licenses. I know this is a no-no for NetWare
but was
wondering what the effect on BM would be? Is the way it should be? It
is the
only BM server in the tree. Should doing this make a difference or was
it
just a fluke or is the fact that doing this solved the problem
indicitive of
other problems?

Thanks
