I have stability problems with my BM 3.8 SP4 proxy. The proxy was
originally installed on a NW 6.5 SP3 server. With this configuration, I
sometimes (each 2-3 weeks) had proxy.nlm crashes (see abend.log snippet
below [1]). "proxy -cc" and bm38sp4_ir2a.exe didn't help.

I then tried to update to Netware 6.5 SP5 (ok, maybe not really well
thought-out)...it got even worse...
If the first few users access the proxy, I get the following console
message every minute:
A scheduled "Work To Do" took over one minute to be run.
"unload proxy" crashes the server immediately - no abend.log is written.

There is no other software on the server...only, Netware, iManager,
Bordermanager (only Proxy, no VPN).

Any ideas?

Thanks
Patric
