NetWare 5.0 is delaying few seconds per hour

After installed NetWare 5.0 and applied services packs (last level is 6a) the system began delay few seconds every hour. I looked for some write papers in Novell and a lot of documents was talking about the NLM "TIMESYNC" (old version) but not realiable because the system is OK about the versions of modules.

Re: NetWare 5.0 is delaying few seconds per hour

You'll need to install an older version of the Timesysnc.NLM or also try updating the IDE CDROM Drivers from Novell . This has been a work around/resolution to the problem .

Re: NetWare 5.0 is delaying few seconds per hour

The problem is also apparent in Novell 5.1 with the latest patches installed. It occurs in a single server environment, with the machine set a single reference or reference. There is a fix, which was very difficult to locate, but which I have applied and it works. Basically you set the server time source to hardware then use itself as the time reference?? Sounds bizarre but it works full details in doc 10023130 at www.novell.com (just put the number in the search box and the document will come up)
