Problem: NetWare servers getting zlss.nlm errors/abends.

SOLUTION: Before any of the solutions listed in some of the TIDs found online will work, you must restart the server without loading the nss.nlm. The fixes listed in TIDs I've found in the Knowledgebase will not work if nss.nlm loads and tries to automount the volumes. In order to prevent this, you must remark out the load nss.nlm and mount statements in the autoexec.ncf and restart the server. Once back at the server prompt, type "load nss /autodeactivate=all". Then you can do a verify or rebuild volume and correct the problem.
