Environment

Novell NetWare 6.5
Novell NetWare 6.0
Novell NetWare 5.1
Novell NetWare 4.2

Situation

Server is Hung
The server's console prompt is not responsive.
Is there a way to unload an NLM that is hung?
Can I kill the process with out having to reboot the server?

Resolution

Type Left-Shift, Right-Shift, ALt, and Esc at the same time to get to the server Debugger screen. In the Debugger, type EIP=CSleepUntilInterrupt

Warning: Typing Left-Shift, Right-Shift, Alt, and ESC at the same time will cause the server to go into Debugger mode. THE SERVER WILL BE EFFECTIVELY DOWNED at that point.

Additional Information

This command will interrupt the last NLM called. If that was not the NLM that caused the server to hang, the server will still need to be rebooted. Keep in mind that the server once in debugger mode will no longer be functioning as a server and will be down.
