fix

Type CONFIG on the servers that are having the problems and compare the node/MAC addresses and make sure that they are unique. If they are identical then backrev the driver and delete or rename the servcfg files in the nwserver dir. You can also add a NODE=node address to the driver load line to have it come up correctly. If you are running NetWare 6 you will need to use the NODE= load line or rename the servcfg files. Make sure not to delete the servcfg files in the nwserver dir on a NetWare 6 server.
