We discovered after a backup that the screensaver on the server console did not work anymore. (NetWare6 SP2 and Arcserve 7.) After trying "scrsaver enable" nothing would happen. We tried a solution offered by Computer Associates but it did not work.

SOLUTION: We made the following .ncf file that unloads and reloads scrsaver.nlm and added this to the post job execution. Worked like a charm.

unload scrsaver
scrsaver activate;No password;delay 300
