If there is not enough free upper memory block (UMB) space for Banyan VINES network software, it may overwrite the current CMOS settings. To work around this problem, free up additional UMB space.


For example, if SMARTDrive (SMARTDRV.EXE) is loaded in upper memory, there may not be enough UMB space for Banyan VINES. To work around this problem and avoid Banyan VINES overwriting the CMOS settings, free up additional UMB space or load Banyan VINES in conventional memory and use MS-DOS MemMaker to optimize the UMB space.

For additional information, contact Banyan VINES.

Banyan VINES is manufactured by Banyan Systems, a vendor independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.
