I am using Netware 6.5 sp1a and bm 3.8 sp1a.

I recently deleted some unneeded packet filter exceptions using
iManager. When my server was restarted over the weekend the firewall is
not allowing packets in the exception list to pass through.
I get a message on the logger screen that states:
"nbm filewall failed to read configuration from ds"
What is actuall happening is all traffic is blocked as the exceptions do
not seem to be working.

I have checked ds and all looks healthy.

Any ideas. I have been forced to disable filters on the public interface
until I can fix the problem.
