NetWare 6.5 SPx Redline 3.x


Redline runs in the NetWare OS address space.  Would like to load it in Protected Memory.
Redline Control Center and Agents ABEND badly when unloading from protected memory.


NOTE:  In order for the Redline agents to unload from protected memory properly, the server must have updated LIBC.NLMs dated May 8, 2006. Doing so will avoid the rough abend that causes the server to reboot. To apply the LIBC.NLM and load Redline into protected memory, perform the following steps. This will require the server to be rebooted. NOTE:  If you are currently running NetWare 6.5 SP6 or higher, it should not be necessary to update the LIBC libraries as they the ones that came with these versions are already sufficient. 1. Check your libc.nlm version. It must be dated May 8, 2006 or later. If not you will experience abends upon unloading the memory address space. Updating to the latest NetWare service pack is the easiest way to resolve this.  (NetWare 6.5 SP6 or higher should be sufficient, but checking is always recommended) 2. Modify the VOLUME_NAME:\opt\beginfinite\redline\bin\RLAG.NCF and RLCC.NCF to load into protected memory example: load address space=RLAG rlag6.nlm -c sys:\opt\beginfinite\redline\conf\rlagent.conf -d2 example: load address space=RLCC rlcc6.nlm -c sys:\opt\beginfinite\redline\conf\rlcenter.conf -d2 3. Unload the Redline Control Center and Agent by pressing F7 on each Redline screen. 4. Reboot the server. (Necessary only if applying a new LIBC package) 5. To unload the Redline Agent from protected memory type: unload address space=rlag or press F7 from the Agent screen To unload the Redline Control Center from protected memory type: unload address space=rlcc or press F7 from the Control Center screen.
