Last week we posted this Q&A.

My question is how do I disable the messages sent to users connected to the NetWare server which warn that LOGS or CACHE volumes are almost out of disk space. I thought those messages were only sent to the Admin user.


If there's a dedicated BorderManager box, and it's properly configured, there's no reason for the CACHE volumes to fill up. Also, I would guess that the users are attaching to it to load CLNTRUST - that can be copied to other servers and run from there, so there should be no reason for the users to have a connection to the BorderManager server.

Here's another suggestion:

On the server you can do SET VOLUME LOW WARN ALL USERS = OFF and it should stop sending those warnings to normal users.
