SYMPTOMS
When browsing a NetWare server in Network Neighborhood or Explorer, not allvolumes on the server are shown.
CAUSE
The redirector for Client Services for NetWare (CSNW) for Windows NTWorkstation and Gateway Services for NetWare (GSNW) for Windows NT Serverfails to show any volumes on a NetWare server past a volume which isdismounted.
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 theMicrosoft Knowledge Base:

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