When RCD.NLM was loaded the netware machine has gone to abend state and cores. Below is an example of the Core.dmp log:

The RCD.NLM is not loaded by default. If you have a script that is loading this, and you run a Nessus scan on your server, it may abend. To resolve this, do not load RCD.NLM. This is optional and is not used by any Novell processes.
