Novell Client for Vista/W7 2.0 SP1 IR4 bug in a cluster environment Posted on 01 November 2010 under NetWare (Updated 01 November 2010)

A new bug is present in IR4 which can cause a range of issues when a cluster is present. An object name is resolved correctly to an ID, but an ID of 0xFFFFFFFF may be used in a subsequent request to the server. This can result in messages such as "Invalid context" and "No such object" from programs in JRButils.

It is understood that the issue is a consequence of the fix to IR3 for the problem affecting move_obj and other programs.

The fix will appear in IR5, but meanwhile a post IR4 patch is available.
