The performance of File and Print Services for NetWare
(FPNW) may be impaired if certain client operations are not processed
correctly. For example, when you copy files from a client computer that is
running Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98, or Microsoft Windows
Millennium Edition (Me) to an FPNW server by using the Novell client, each file
may take over a second to be copied, and the time and date on the file may not
be set to the time and date of the original file. Delays may also occur when
you create drive mappings.
This issue occurs because FPNW does not process
GetNSLoadedListFromVolNumber and "NCP Set File Date Time" instructions because
of a structure size mismatch. The client resends the instruction after
approximately one second, but FPNW considers the resent instruction to be a
duplicate and returns "success" without processing it.
