Novell Client for Vista/W7 2.0 SP1 IR3 bug affects move_obj Posted on 30 September 2010 under NetWare (Updated 22 October 2010)

A bug in the Novell Client for Vista/W7 2.0 SP1 IR3 can prevent objects being moved in a multi-server environment. The issue is not specific to move_obj but seems to show there most consistently. In other programs the bug may result in "Invalid context" or "No such object" errors.

The problem arises because the client resolves an object name to an ID on server A, then passes the object ID to server B. However, object IDs are server specific.

This is fixed in IR4.
