Hello,

ERROR MESSAGE:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"The system could not log you into the network.

Make sure your name and connection information are correct, then type your
password again.

Select the Workstation Only checkbox to log in to the local workstation."
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I am new to Netware so please bear with me.

On recent days, I have been getting the message shown above. I am not
really sure what exactly is causing this problem. What is even more
concerning is that it sometimes happens to the Admin account. That is, I
try to login as admin and get the same message no matter how many times I
try. After a while, I try it again and it lets me in.

(Note: I tried login in using the distinguished name format: .admin.del_to
and it still gives me the same error)

I checked the synchronization between the servers (SET DSTRACE=ON) and I
don't see any error codes. I also ran a Timesync report, and Replica Status
Report (see below) and that seems to be OK as well.

What is a bit strange is that sometimes, when I get this error, I manage to
login but only a few drives are mapped. Mainly, one to the HAL4\DATA, and
two to the PALISADE\SYS. When I logged off and try it again, I might get
the error, or I might eventually allow me to login properly with all the
other drives mapped.

It might be worth mentioning that I am not using SLP. I wonder whether this
will make a difference and possibly get rid of the problem. Please advice.

I am also wondering whether this could be a licensing problem. I am not
sure how to check that.

The OES-Linux server was installed recently. The problem appeared a few
days after. I don't know whether this has anything to do with the error but
I thought it would be good to mention it.

Any solution, or guidance on what to look for will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your help,

Steve O.

timesync, only NTP; this is probably why "Time Source" and "Time +/-" show
as "-"
