Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To set a preferred server

  1. Open Client Service for NetWare.

  2. Click Preferred Server, and in Select Preferred Server, enter the preferred server.


  • Client Service for NetWare is not available on 64-bit versions of Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP.


  • To open Client Service for NetWare, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click CSNW. To use Client Service for NetWare, you must first install it.

  • You should set a default tree and context only in an NDS environment; otherwise, you can set a preferred server.

  • If you do not want to set a preferred server, click None. You are then attached to the nearest available NetWare server, and your interaction with the NetWare network is through that server. If you do not set a preferred server, and do not select None, then you are prompted to set one each time you log on. You can set a preferred server at any time.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
