Novell NetWare 6.5 SP6
NetStorage 2.0.1


Performing a right mouse click on the file menus in Netstorage either don't work at all or work intermittently. You also may see the following Java script error depending on the browser you are using:

Syntax error in \tomcat\4\webapps\NetStorage\messages.js.de

If you look in line 122 of the messages.js.de file you will see that it contains "Dateien Verschlüsseln" (including the Quotes) in the Message Text. The Quotes are what seem to be breaking the Javascript.


A patch has been released December 8th 2006 which resolves this issue. You can download the patch by going to https://support.novell.com/servlet/filefinder and searching for the patch name nsmsgde.exe. Installation instructions should be in the readme included with the patch. You will need to extract the patch in order to get the readme. This same issue can apply to other languages as well. For example the spanish file would be messages.js.sp.

Additional Information

This issue only happens after applying Support Pack 6 for NetWare 6.5.
