Problem

After upgrading to NetWare SP4 on a 6.5 machine, my BorderManager software picked up old filters. (This was presumably from an old filters.cfg file that had been renamed to filters.old, but I'm not sure.)

Solution

Fortunately, the problem was easy to fix. Here are the steps I followed:

  1. Restore the latest version of filters.cfg from backup.
  2. Unload filtsrv.nlm.
  3. Run 'filtsrv migrate' from the command line. That will copy the filters from filters.cfg into eDirectory.
  4. Unload filtsrv.nlm again.
  5. Re-initialize the system.

Voila - it's all fixed. Just make sure you do a backup before running the support pack (as you should, anyway!).
