Novell Client 2 SP4 for Windows


When attempting to map a drive in the login script, an error is returned, such as:

LOGIN-LGNWNT32-430: The following drive mapping operation could not be completed.
The error code was c0000035.


Try using either a literal drive letter known to be available, to see if that avoids the error. Or, try setting "First Network Drive" in Novell Client Properties to that known available drive letter, so that "*1" will now be an implicit reference to that same starting drive letter.


The status code being displayed is the Windows status code for STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_COLLISION (0xC0000035). It can occur when a relative drive letter reference such as "*1" has unexpectedly collided with some existing drive letter. The most common case of which is when a USB drive takes an additional "local" drive letter, although in modern computers even normal peripherals such as the optical drive might be USB-connected too.
