SUMMARY: Floppy Drive under WABI
Thu, 26 Feb 1998 17:46:04 -0500

Hi ,

Sorry for such a late summary, actually I did not get time to try the suggestion
given by everybody.

I received many responses, thanks to,

almost everybody said, try to stop volmgt and then try to access the floppy.
I tried that but it did not help. as I found that problem was something else.

I found that the system was giving "rda_server died with exit status 2",

I went thru FAQs on Sunsolve and FAQ#1892, says if multiple people try to
access the rwabi, it gives this error and rda_server dies. So the user can not
access the floppy under local machine.

I guess if I am to use a single WABI server and multiple accessing it, then I
won't be able to use floppy locally.

Can somebody suggest some work around on this ?
