Steps for putting TSAFS.NLM into debug mode on NetWare.
Enabling the debug options in tsafs:
- From the file server console type:
TSAFS /smsdebug=fffffffc /smsdebug2=fffffffc
This will put the TSAFS into debug mode.
- Run any backups or restores that you know will exhibit the bad behavior. A lot of data will be written to the debug log, so try to limit your tests or data sets to the minimum needed to exhibit the problem.
- Then turn off the debugging by typing at the file server console:
TSAFS /smsdebug=0 /smsdebug2=0
- Collect the debug log at sys:/system/tsa/tsadbg.log and send it in for analysis.
