Environment

Products
Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 5

Situation

Symptoms
The backout will fail looking for msgvar.rcf
Error: SYS:\SYSTEM\BACKSP5\msgvar.rcf
The BACKOUT.IPS file for NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 5 assumes a backup path of SYS:\SYSTEM\BACKSP5 even if the backup path was changed to another location during the support pack installation.

Resolution

Workaround Steps
Edit the BACKOUT.IPS file created in the BACKSP5 directory where the support pack was backed up and modify the line that reads:
GetPathbackupPath, 1,'%{SystemDir}\\BACKSP5' ,''
Change the %{SystemDir} to the path where the BACKSP5 directory is located.
So, for example if the files were backed up to VOL1 the modified line would be:
GetPathbackupPath, 1,'VOL1:\\BACKSP5' ,''
