Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows


The Novell Volume Statistics tab is able to report volumes greater than 2TB. However, the 'Space Restriction' value under the 'Novell Info' tab does not correctly handle directory quotas that are greater than 2TB.


Fixed in Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows (IR7) and later.

Additional Information

The restrictions will work correctly only up to 16TB. Novell is continuing to work to resolve the 16TB limitation.

The changes also enable a drop-down "KB" / "MB" / "GB" / "TB" suffix the user can select from when setting the restriction value for the set space restriction box. However, for non-English versions, this drop-down feature will not be available until the next localization of the Novell Client 2, usually the next full Support Pack. Until that time, non-English version users will need to continue entering the value in KB.
