Refer to Resolution
There is a bug in Novell Netware regarding the storage of the DOS Name Space value of the folder's name. This occurs in Novell Server version 5.x and 6. Server 6.5 does not have the same error.
This occurs only if the folder name is less than 8 characters in length (including spaces), and includes one or more spaces.
There is a folder named "NEW 123"
Using Netware Administrator (nwadmin), the details page of a folder indicates the DOS NameSpace value as "NEW_OL~1"
This DOS value is longer than the original folder name.
Rename the Novell folder to a value that has more than 8 characters, or remove the space from the folder name.
