Novell NetWare 6.5 SP5
Novell Distributed Print Services (NDPS)
"Error -672 occurred while accessing Directory Services" seen in NDPS Manager after upgrade to Netware 6.5 Support Pack 5
Health Monitor for the NDPSM Manager shows a Client status of Red client. The NDS Interface also shows as Red.
Printing is not affected but error is seen on NDPS Manager several times a minute.
A new get effective rights call was added in the NDPSM.NLM with Support Pack 5 code that in many cases can return a valid error (-672 no_access).
Apply NDPSM.NLM dated 19JAN2006 or later. Search Novell's File Finder for NDPSM.NLM to obtain the fix.
