The Target of a newly created DFS junction is not accessible.
Windows 7 client returns the error message:
 <Junction> is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource.  Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
A device attached to the system is not functioning.


DFS communicates with the VLDB database through Jetstream on the default port 6901.
There were two networks bound to different cards in the server and workstation. 
The client was trying to communicate with the VLDB service through one network while the VLDB was listening on the other.

Edit the network address information stored in the /etc/opt/novell/eDirectory/conf/nds.conf file to agree with the Network address
the clients are using. 
Run dsrepair option to "Repair all network addresses".
Reset the server.
