Hi all,

I got a problem on our network since we changed our old netware 5.x server to new hardware, new name netware 6.5. The problem is word templets *.dot files that we stored on the old server, when we moved tho docs and the templetes to the new server (with new name) and remowed the old server it seems that word is seeking for the old server forever before timing out, this only happens to document created on the old server with dot files stored on file server, if you do a cut and paste from a old document to a new created with the same templet but stored on the new server it works like a charm. Anybody got any ide how to solve this for +40k word socuments

cheers

Thats not the problem, new files got the right settings from the templets located on the network (and the settings in word is updated and right), the problems is olders docs created with a templet pointing to a server that is no more. I will test a solution from a coulege of mine and add a false nds entry for the old server pointing to the new servers ip address, will see if that works

cheers

Hmmm, I can see at least one typo in my last reply. NDS should be DNS off course.
