The license files included with the English-only release of Novell BorderManager 3.7 will expire in December, 2002. This has been corrected in the multilingual release that shipped in June of this year. The two releases are easily distinguished by looking at the face of the product CD. The English-only release has the old dancing people graphic. The multilingual release is labeled as "(Multilingual)" and does not have the dancing person.
Alternatively, you may inspect the properties of the license objects you are using to ensure that they do not have an expiration date. In NetWare Administrator, select one of the NBM 3.7 license certificate objects, right-click and select "Details". Clicking the "Policy" button will show whether there is an expiration date or not.
For example: here's what it looks like if it WILL expire:
And if it has NO expiration date, this is what you'll see:
If you installed licenses that came with the English-only release, you will need to replace them with non-expiring licenses. To receive replacement licenses, if you purchased NBM 3.7 English directly from Novell you should already have received instructions by e-mail. If you did not receive the notification, or if you purchased NBM 3.7 English through a Novell channel partner, contact Novell Technical Services in the US at 1-800-858-4000. Outside the US, please call 1-801-861-4000. The Customer Service Representatives will assist you free of charge.
