Need advice on running admin level Novell 3.12 server
March 9, 2004 11:13 AM   Subscribe

I inherited admin rights on a Novell 3.12 server a while back. To say I am weak in this area is a sad slap at the word weak. This morning, a user stated that a directory "got deleted somehow". [more inside]

Two questions: 1st - how do I find out who did it (so far everyone says "Not Me")? 2nd - then how do I recover it. I read about the Salvage command in the manual, but I don't know where to use it.

I've got console access, but the three things I can get to are the backup menu, the status module (96 days of uptime and counting) and one that tells me the time module is hosed.

It's been about a hundred years since I've used 3.12 but I do seem to remember an Undelete command (that you can run from the client, not the server) but my mind could be playing tricks. If I knew this question would come up I wouldn't have thrown out my old Netware manuals three weeks ago.

directories can get deleted and all sort of shit can go bad when the users maximum space is reached, be sure to check that
