If the FILES= statement in the CONFIG.SYS file is set to fewer than 11, one of three different error messages may be displayed when you try to run the NETADMIN utility included with Novell NetWare version 4.0. These error messages vary depending on the FILES= setting.

To avoid these errors, increase FILES= 11 or greater.


FILES=10 returns:

Error Report : NETADMIN-4.00-970
The attempt to open the unicode table files failed.
The current operation cannot be completed.
Press <Enter> to continue.
FILES=9 returns:

Error Report : NETADMIN-4.00-999
This utility can't find the message file NWDSBRWS.MSG.
The current operation cannot be completed.
Press <Enter> to continue.
FILES=8 returns:

Error Report : NETADMIN-4.00-91
The system could not locate the Help Librarian data file
TEXTUTIL.HEP and will not be able to provide help for this utility.

The program should continue normally Press <Enter> to continue.
The above message that occurs with FILES=8 is followed by the same message displayed with FILES=9.
