Client for Open Enterprise Server 2 SP4 (IR3)
Novell Client 2 SP4 for Windows
The following errors may be returned when logging in:
LOGIN-LGNWNT32.DLL-890: The specified server is unknown.
LOGIN-LGNWNT32.DLL-430: The following drive mapping operation could not be completed. [...]
The error code was 8884.
Correct the name resolution problem, or use the IP address of the server in the MAP statement.
Correct the name resolution problem:
1. Configure SLP. See TID 7012387. Or,
2. Configure DNS. See OES 2015 SP1: DNS/DHCP Services for Linux Administration Guide. Or,
3. Configure the hosts file. The hosts file is located in C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc. The hosts file will need to be configured on every workstation, so this is not recommended for large installations.
Verify that the registry settings BadNameCacheList and GoodNameCacheList under [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Novell\Client\Parameters] contain correct syntax. The same symptom has occurred when a partial server name in GoodNameCacheList was terminated by a double asterisk (wildcard *). See TID 7015227
The server name cannot be resolved. A LAN trace shows multiple resolve attempts by SRVLOC (SLP), DNS, etc., but none of the name resolvers are configured, so the attempts are unsuccessful.
