IBM OS/2 WARP V3.0 AND NETWARE REQUESTER

Support Bulletin: 2010 Rev: B

Abstract: This document contains the instructions on how to add NetWare connectivity using Racore Token Ring products to OS/2 WARP v3.0 where no other network connections are required. It uses the Racore NetWare requester driver RCPTRNW.OS2 and the NetWare Requester Installation program for OS/2 WARP. The former NW requester driver RTR16NW.OS2 is superceded by RCPTRNW.OS2 and is recommended for use with 8113-8119 series adapters.

MATERIALS NEEDED:

1. Racore NetWare Requester Driver RCPTRNW.OS2 v1.16 or higher and related file MSM.MSG from the Racore distribution diskette. For PCMCIA adapters, you will also need the OS2 enabler file PCMDRI.ADD from the Racore distribution diskette.

2. Novell NetWare Requester Installation program for OS/2 (v2.01 or higher), supplied by Novell on CD ROM or diskette.

STARTING POINT:

OS/2 WARP has been installed on local hard drive using FAT instead
the hard drive in the \NETWARE directory (run INSTALL).

Choose "Requester on Workstation"
Make target directory \NETWARE
Select "Copy Only Requester Files"

Exit the install program as running from CD ROM or diskette.

2. Copy the Racore files RCPTRNW.OS2 and MSM.MSG to the \NETWARE directory of your system's hard drive.

3. From the \NETWARE directory of your system's hard drive, begin the NetWare Requester program again.

Select "INSTALLATION"
Select "Requester on Workstation"
Select "Only Edit CONFIG.SYS"

From the "Choose ODI LAN Driver" window:

Enter the driver name RCPTRNW.OS2.

From the "Choose NetWare Support for DOS and Windows Applications" window:

Select "OFF"

From the "Choose Optional Protocols" window:

Don't make any selections

Press "SAVE"

The program will update your CONFIG.SYS and insert the command line which loads RCPTRNW.OS2. You may now exit the NetWare Requester Installation program. If you need to create a NET.CFG file as explained in step 3 below, you may remain in the program and select

"CONFIGURE".

4. This step may be skipped for PCMCIA adapters using default settings. For all other adapters, this step must be followed carefully.

For flash based adapters (8116 and higher, except for early revision 8117):

Create a NET.CFG file in the root directory of your system's hard drive. It must conform to the example below. This may be done with any ASCII text editor, or through the CONFIGURATION option of the NetWare Requester installation program. Because these adapters do not use the TI2000 configuration registry, configuration parameters must be passed in the NET.CFG file.

Link Driver RCPTRNW

NOCONFIG (tells driver not to look for configuration registry)

NODE ADDRESS 00001a001234 (use address printed on adapter, or any valid 12 digit address)

PORT 0A20 (match adapter's setting, use leading 0)
INT 10
DMA 7

For non-flash based adapters (8113 - 8115 and earlier revision 8117):
In addition to step 3 above, you must also:

- Disable adapter's ROM (see manual for switch setting)

- Copy the file RTR16LLC.COD from the \DIAGS directory of the Racore distribution diskette to the \NETWARE directory of your system's hard drive.

5. From the Racore distribution diskette \NETWARE.OS2, copy the RCPTRNW.OS2 and MSM.MSG files to the \NETWARE directory of your system's hard drive.

For PCMCIA adapters:

In addition to the steps above, you must also:

- Copy the PCMCIA enabler file PCMDRI.ADD from the Racore distribution diskette to the root directory of your system's hard drive. This is a base device driver, therefore it must reside in the root directory and no path should be given.

- Insert the PCMCIA enabler command line in the CONFIG.SYS file immediately preceding the first BASEDEV command line. An example is shown below:

BASEDEV=PCMDRI.ADD (see manual for any needed switches) BASEDEV=PRINT01.SYS

- It may also be necessary for you to select PCMCIA support for your particular notebook computer using the "Selective Install" window. It is not currently recommended to select

PCMCIA Hard Drive or PCMCIA Flash in this utility.

6. Shut down your OS/2 WARP system and re-boot.

Your system will boot, load the NetWare Requester driver, and provide you with NetWare connectivity.
