When browsing a NetWare server in Network Neighborhood or Explorer, not all volumes on the server are shown.
The redirector for Client Services for NetWare (CSNW) for Windows NT Workstation and Gateway Services for NetWare (GSNW) for Windows NT Server fails to show any volumes on a NetWare server past a volume which is dismounted.
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:

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.
NetWare volumes are enumerated by CSNW and GSNW based on volume number. The redirector requests the name of each volume starting with volume 0, and progresses incrementally through the volumes on the NetWare server. If the NetWare server reports that a particular volume number is not mounted, CSNW/GSNW stops enumerating the volumes at that point and displays the list it has to the user. If the NetWare server has more volumes mounted past the volume number where one (or more) was dismounted, they will not be displayed. However, a user can still connect to any volume by specifying its name in the Map Network Drive dialog box or with a NET USE command at a command prompt.
