with Bordermanager installed and packet filtering enabled the "local
database open" comes after about 25(!) Minutes.
NetWare 6.5SP4a, TCP661E. Therefore Bordermanager, Tomcat (LDAP), NAMED,
etc. cant start.

Exclude NCP Addresses for the externals is done.

I have seen this on two separate customer implementations now, some others
dont have this problem.
There are some TIDs about late opening DSs like (change the linkspeed of the
nics) that dont help.

any ideas?

kind regards
