Novell OES 11 SP2
Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows
POSIX file system


After upgrading from OES 11 SP1 to OES 11 SP2, users viewing directory entries on  an NCP volume will see the files listed multiple times.

The problem is seen only on POSIX volumes (e.g. EXT3).
The problem is not seen on NSS volumes.


The server sets the "More Segments/Entries Available (0xff) bit, such that the Novell Client continues to ask for more entries. It should set the bit off when all the entries have been read.
