test network environment: 1 NetWare server 6.5sp8 + 1 SLES 10SP4 with OES2.0.3 server + 1 mac client running 10.5.8 with kanaka 2.7 plugin and client installed

I can login to the mac with an eDir user account.
once I logout of the mac I can't log back in with that same account on either a mac or a windows machine until I rest the password for the user in console1.

any ideas? This is my first attempt at introducing kanaka into eDir so I may be missing something obvious
