Novell NetWare


Need to remove or uninstall the legacy Novell Auditing functionality


1. Delete all of the *.?AF files in the SYS:_NETWARE directory. The _NETWARE directory is a hidden directory and contains all of the Directory Services files, so use caution when deleting files from this directory. Deleting these files can be done using either NETBASIC or JCMD. NOTE: If the error "error removing files" is received, the read/only attributes may need to be removed using JCMD or TOOLBOX.

2. Delete the auditing objects. Note that if the object will not delete after deleting the files, load DSBROWSE.NLM with a "-A" option (DSBROWSE -A) , select the object, press F3, selected Delete Object. This will mark the object with "Deleted Entry", create an obituary and process as a normal obituary, so it may not"disappear" immediately.
