FYI NW 6.5 SP3 Latest

Here is some information I have on NetWare 6.5 SP3

I don't recommend this SP3 unless we have the latest SERVER.EXE (5/4/2005) - Not released to public yet.
Contact me if you'd like to apply the latest SERVER.EXE
(I now have the latest auto tuning SERVER.EXE for NetWare 6.0 SP5 also.)
However there is one problem to be aware of that Novell is still working on.
FATFS can cause abends when loading the latest SERVER.EXE
Possible abends with FATFS.NLM when booting up the server. This does not happen with most customers but we have seen it with a few.
We're soon coming out with a new FATFS.NLM to deal with this issue, however until that time here is a workaround.
Rename the FATFS.NLM on the server (dos partition) to FATFS.OLD.
This will stop it from loading and consequently it cannot cause an abend if it isn't loaded.
If you follow this information then I recommend you apply NetWare 6.5 SP3 and keep auto tuning turned on.
Kind Regards,
- Bucky
