Symptom

No available directory entries on volume.

Fact

    NOTE: With DOS name-space there is 16M directory entries (directories and files)2M if 4.10. If an additional name-space is used, the number will decrease by 50%. With the addition of a third or fourth name-space, the directory entries will be decreased by 33 1/3%.  If the user is using DOS, MAC, OS2 and NFS, they typically will not have many directory entries to work with.

Cause

Large volume(s) with multiple name-space used.

Fix

Create separate volumes on the partition for each name-space used. This will allow 2 million directory entries on each "name-space" volume. The other option would be to consider NetWare 5 with NSS volumes
