cause

Problem with the Support Pack 2 version of NLSLSP.NLM.

fix

Backrev NLSLSP.NLM to the previous version.  The previous version is found on the NetWare 6 install CD (it was not updated in Support Pack 1).  Copy NLSLSP.NLM from the CD path SYS\SYSTEM\NLSLSP.NLM to the server path SYS:SYSTEM\NLSLSP.NLM.  Unload NLSLSP at the server console, and after about 10 seconds it will reload itself.  Once it reloads, you should see most of the duplicate license assignments go away.  Those that remain, clear them with NWADMN32, or iManage.

 

A fix has been released in nls502ft.exe and nls603ft.exe. This contains updates for NW 5.1 and NW 6, and also fixes problems on both platforms with Academic licenses ( ALA ).

note

Although the readme in the NLS502FT.EXE patch specifically mentions NW 5.1sp5 and NW 6 sp2, this same issue has been seen after applying sp3
