Environment

Novell Client for Windows Vista
Novell Client 2 for Windows Vista/2008
Novell Client 2 SP1 for Windows Vista
Novell Client 2 SP1 for Windows Server 2008
Novell Client 2 SP1 for Windows 7
Novell Client 2 SP1 for Windows Server 2008 R2

Situation

  1. Change the drive mapping for USB drive from "F:" to "P:" using My Computer -> Manage option on a Windows 7 workstation.
  2. Log out of Windows 7 workstation and log in again.
  3. Now SYS:\Public is mapped to "Q:" drive instead of mapping to "F:" drive which is unused.

Resolution

Reported to Engineering.
 
Workaround :
Set the "First Network Drive" setting to the first drive letter above whatever possible USB drives might be installed in the machine.
For example, if there might be 2 USB drives inserted, they would occupy the "F:" and "G:" drive assignments, so the "First Network Drive" setting should be assigned as "H:"
