During the extract of a file-distribution, the logger screen of the server shows error messages indicating the Bindery Context can't be set.


ZSM 7 tries to change the owner of the distributed files, on NetWare the only way ZSM is able to get the user info and change the file owner is by setting the bindery context to the context of the file owner, after changing the file owner the bindery context is set back to the original context. If the replica that holds the file owner isn't on the server, the error indicating the Bindery Context can't be set will show up.
