Can't delete folder

I have a folder on a netware 6.5 server that has several subordinate 
folders under that I can't delete.  Has anyone had anything like this 
happen to them with Novell?  Error message through windows is simply 
can't delete and through nwadmn says object still has several 
subordinates can't delete.   I have seen this with windows but this is 
the first for me.  Any ideas would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Are you saying  there are subordinates that cannot be deleted?  
Or that there appear to be none?

Check for attributes that pevent deletion.
Check for hidden files
Check for processes holding files open.

If that bring no new years joy, make a minimal autoexec.ncf
reboot and try again.

Re: Can't delete folder

I'd also check it in C1.  It's possible that there are Mac file
resource forks which Windows and NWadmin can't see, but C1 will.  I've
had that happen to me.

I have seen this a couple times ... it is usually either a corrupted
file, or a file with illegal characters in the name.

I've had good luck using deltree (yes, the old windows util) and also
have used filer (the old netware c-worhty file management util) and
also the compaq file management util for netware ... (I forget the
name at the moment)

In addition to other suggestions:

If some process/connection is keeping files open and you can't get rid 
of it gracefully, try dismounting and mounting the volume.

Hosts File

On my W/S at home I have a hosts file setup so that most of the
addware/spyware sites are set to local hosts name. ex:

127.0.0.1  www.adcipta.net #[W32/Malware]
127.0.0.1  adserv.adbonus.com #[IE-SpyAd]
127.0.0.1  www.adbonus.com
127.0.0.1  media.adcentriconline.com #[IE-SpyAd]
127.0.0.1  ad2.adcept.net
127.0.0.1  ad3.adcept.net

I have questions related to this.

If I would add these same entry's to a Netware server HOST file,
running either as A Border Manager Server or as DNS server, would it do
the same thing as it does for my workstation. I just get connection
refused if I try to go to website directly or if I go to a site with a
link to say doublelclick.com it just will fill it with ad space text.

If the above would work and I have NW server as defaut DNS server but a
fallback to a couple on my ISP site, would it still try to find them at
local host or would it jump to the ISP and get the correct site.

Would the BM proxy file mess this up.

Thanks

Fred

cluster and SBD questions ...

2 servers (nw65 sp2) running clustering. GW 65 sp3.

The SAN (was) an MSA 500 (which is the scsi version) and we upgraded
to the fiber components. Both servers come up and can see the shared
storage, no problem.

However, server B cannot join the cluster. The error we get is:

"sbd has reported a fatal error"

I have found a few tids, but I'm still not really clear what to do.
Can I just run the SBD install routine on server B and all is good?

How will this effect Server A (which is currently hosting all
services, so I don't want to *risk* brining it down/breaking it if I
can avoid it)?

It seems odd to me that server B can see shared storage fine, but
can't see the SBD partition.

Any suggestions on how I should proceed?

Re: cluster and SBD questions ...

The best way to solve this is to cluster down on node A and the go
through a SBD delete and recreate with node B 

Once recreated restart B and then cluster join A
