Fact

Novell NetWare 5.1 SP2a

NDPS 2.0

DS 7.55

Symptom

There is no Resource Type icon for Windows 2000 print drivers in Broker's RMS.

Unable to add Windows 2000 printer drivers to the Broker.

Drivers to be deployed when a printer is installed.

Cause

Even though SP6a is installed, the BROKER.NLM is out of date (i.e. 2.00d dated from 1999).  It should be 2.00h dated 6-29-2000 or later.  In one instance the download of the SP6a contained no BROKER.NLM at all, so it was not being updated.

Also, NDPS snapins providing the icon service were updated in later Support Packs.

Fix

Check the BROKER.NLM and be sure it contains the latest available version.

Make sure NWAdmin32 5.19f or later is running on a NW 5.1 SP3 or later server.  Another option would be to copy the NWAdmin32 files from the server to the workstation, then run it on the workstation.
