7067 NetWare Connection Number Not Found

Advantage Error Guide

Problem: Before an Advantage client first connects to the Advantage Database Server for NetWare, it calls an API to get the current workstation's NetWare connection number. This connection number is then passed to the Advantage Database Server to be used for such things as "check rights" security and Management API/Utility functionality. Newer versions of the Novell IntranetWare client and Novell Client 32 software contain bugs and return an invalid NetWare connection number to the Advantage client. If the Novell client gives Advantage an invalid NetWare connection number, and the Advantage Database Server was unable to find a valid NetWare connection number for this user, this error will be logged. This error will also occur if a 32-bit Advantage Windows client attempts to connect to an Advantage Database Server located on a NetWare server that the user is not physically logged into.

Solution: The latest versions of the Advantage Database Server have attempted to work around the bugs in the Novell client software. In this case, the Advantage Database Server was unable to successfully determine what this user's valid NetWare connection number is. Thus, the "check rights" security functionality and Management Utility/API functionality may not be fully functional when dealing with this NetWare connection number.
