If you have been loosing data from MS Access. If you enter data and 2 hours later it has gone.
It may be Opportunistic Locking.  This has been a problem with Netware for a long time.  
These are the steps that fixed the problem.
Ensure you have Netware client 4.91SP2 or greater
Right mouse click Netware services icon on the system tray
Click Novell Client properties
On the advanced tab
