Environment


Novell Client for Linux

Situation

After successful authentication, mapping drive via Linux client produces error: "NWsetdrivebase2: Drive already in use" and drive mapping fails.

Resolution

In the local Linux user home directory, remove the symbolic link for the file. If this link is bad, that will cause the error because the client thinks it's already in use.

For example, if user JohnD is attempting to map an F drive, in /home/johnd delete the F link.
