Netware 6.5 OES sp8
File, iFolder and GW server. Holds MASTER Replicas of the tree.

I have stepped through the start-up sequence, and have discovered that when the initsys.ncf file is run the server is abending twice. Specifically, when the LAN commands are run one line at a time, it is the binding of the IP to the NIC that is causing the abend.

The logger screen shows:
Module Q57.LAN load status OK
->IpMgmtGetCfgInfo() Failed - IPMGMT is loading
TCPIP-6.82-22: Sun Dec 27 12:15:45 2009
The first byte of the address is illegal

TCPIP-6.82-22: Sun Dec 27 12:15:45 2009
The first byte of the address is illegal
The running process will be suspended.Loading module IPXRTR.NLM

The abend log with the 1st abend is attached.

Thanks in advance!
