II. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEMS FIXED
==================================


=============
Current patch
=============
Description:
   When submitting a backup or restore request from the NetWare server
   (via bp.nlm) and no log file is specified, the NetWare server may
   abend.  The abend only happens when there is a problem submitting
   the request.  If the request get submitted successfully, the NetWare
   server will not abend.

Workaround:
   Always specify a log file when submitting the backup or restore request.

Description:
   During backups, bpcd.nlm would abend due to insufficient stack size -
   the stack pointer was greater than the stack limit.
   This increases the stack size used by bpcd.nlm on NetWare 4.x and 5.x.

===============================
III. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:
===============================

 Windows 95
 ----------
   1) Make sure the BPCD.NLM is not running on the NetWare server.  If
      BPCD.NLM is running, type 'unload BPCD' at the console.

   2) Map a drive to the SYS volume of NetWare server where the updated
      NLMs are to be installed.

   3) Run nlmpatch.exe . (Double-click on nlmpatch.exe from Exploxer)

      This will install the updated NLMs on the NetWare server.  Remember
      to reload the NLMs after the patch update is complete.
