When my BM 3.7 server boots up, LOGGER.TXT file contains the following
err msg:
NBMLICENSE MANAGER: NLS licensing services are unavailable. Please
make sure NLS
LSP.NLM is loaded. Code=C0001003

After the server completes its boot-up, NLSLSP.NLM shows as being
loaded.

After reviewing the log file, it appears to me that this msg is a
result of loading/binding VPTUNNEL.LAN, during the execution of INITSYS.NCF .


TID #10071823 talks of a timing issue. However, my BM load statements
are at the end of my AUTOEXEC.NCF. I Even commented-out BM & VPMASTER to
keep them from starting. I even put a "?" in front of the INITSYS command
to cause a delay in execution, but still get the err msg.

Has anyone else encountered this problem or have a fix for it? Are
there any undesirable ramifications because of this or do things eventually
& correctly fall into place as NLSLSP later completes its
initialization?

Below is a snip-it from my LOGGER.TXT file showing the embedded error
msg in red. (The run-on into the VPTUNNEL msg just appears to be the
result of a omitted carriage-return in the writing of the err msg to the log.)

If you need more of the log, pls let me know.
