SYMPTOMS

When you save policy files directly to a NetWare version 4.11 server and use Client Services for NetWare, you may receive the following error:

Unable to open s:\public\andyl.pol: error 1317 occurred


This error will occur even if the Windows NT computer is not going through Gateway Services for NetWare (GSNW), but using Client Services for NetWare (CSNW) to connect directly to the Novell server.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows NT 4.0 or Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

After you apply the fix, shut down your system properly and restart.

NOTE: Service Pack 3 must be applied to the computer running Windows NT 4.0 prior to applying this fix.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Windows NT 4.0 and Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition. This problem was first corrected in Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4.0 and Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition Service Pack 4.
