Hey guys. I have about 12 Netware servers here, all in the same tree. I have no problem with 11 of them, however one of them is giving me problems. There is no real pattern to it, but every few days, or sometimes once a week or sometimes only once in 2 weeks, the server will either Abend (with a different abend NLM each time) or it will just stop allowing people to log in.

If it has stopped allowing logins (you just get Login Failed), I can still get in using RCON, but there is no error at the console and the server appears to be working fine. I am still learning Netware on the fly as I have had no training, so all of my experience has been on the job and just learning as I go. Here is the latest Abend, I really appreciate any help you guys can give me. Also, it seems to abend more after backups have been done, though it is NOT abending when the backup is happening, it seems to happen sometimes hours and hours after the backup was completed.

Additional Information:
The CPU encountered a problem executing code in SERVER.NLM. The problem may be in that module or in data passed to that module by a process owned by CIFSPROX.NLM.


Thank you for any help you can give, I truly appreciate it.
