Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 7
NetWare Virtualization XEN
OFM.NLM  St. Bernard Software Open File Manager (TM)  - Version 96.01.00   November 17, 2006

Situation

Server abends executing a CLI instruction in OFM.NLM+0005A895h code when running NetWare 6.5 SP7 in a XEN Virtualized environment.

Resolution

This has been reported St. Bernard OFM (EVault, Inc.) and they have logged OFM Feature Request 4753. The OFM.NLM product will need to be modified to run in a XEN environment. Please contact them and reference this feature request if you're interested in running OFM.NLM on NetWare running in a XEN virtualized environment.

Additional Information

The STI and CLI instructions should not explicitly be called by an NLM inside a XEN environment. The provided handlers provided by XEN need to be used instead.
