Re: ANS1410E Unable to access the network path\Win98 restore
Hi again: I think I fixed my own problem.
I have a Promise Ultra33 ATA/EIDE Bus Master IDE Accellerator that I was
required to install in the computer in order to use a Seagate Ultra IDE 4 GB
drive - Windows 98 tried to load its own UDMA drivers and my mother board BIOS
did not support UDMA and it failed. Interestingly the IBM 10.1 GB Ultra IDE
drive worked in the same situation without error. IBM's IDE firmware apparently
is better able to recognize the lack of MB BIOS UDMA support (SiS 551x/P54C PCI
Mainboard) and doesn't let the Windows UDMA driver screw it up.
So anyway, I finally got around to installing the drivers that came with the
Promise card (after refresh from the Promise Web site) and lo and behold, the
restore is running like a charm. This was the only change. So the problem I
document below must somehow have been caused by the Windows 98 drivers that were
replaced by the Promise drivers.
Tip: Purchase IBM's IDE diskdrives if you are using older motherboards with no
UDMA support and Windows 98. This problem does NOT occur with Windows 95 - I

Hi: I am testing a bare metal restore using Windows 98, ver 220.127.116.11
client. The client connects to the server and logs in ok. I issue
the following restore command:
res \\smt-supercomp98\c$\ -rep=all -sub=yes
and it displays
restoring 0\\smt-supercomp98\c$\adsm98.sys ** Unsuccessful
ANS1410E Unable to access the network path.
We don't think this is a network problem despite the message and no
errors show on the server activity log.
The server shows that the client is level 5, I think the last backup
was done with a level 6 client.
The GUI B/A client is able to see the restore directory structure and
I see the new client in it.
So I tried restoring the dsm.opt file in c$\Program
to its original location ... in a directory tree that does not yet
exist on my harddrive and I get the message that the file allready
exists. So I say replace it then I get the failure
Data unavailable to server ... dsm.opt
and the single file restore prcess completes with the failure
restoring 0 files.
This looks to me as if I am in a very buggy situation ... anyone got
any clues? Thanks Eric Lewis UW-Madison
