Hi, all.
We have 2 tree:
First - based on Novell Netware 6.0 sp5
Second - based on Novell Netware 4.11.
All tree use Ethernet 802.3.
User a connecting into first tree.

We have some (~ 300) Workstation with Windows 98 installed on.
When admins change user password via netadmin.exe (Dos tools) - all work fine.
But if admins change user password via NWADM32.exe or ConsoleOne or
iManager - user on Windows 98 workstation can't login.

DSTrace and IPX sniffing display next error:

If admin change user password in netadmin.exe - login was successful!
And users on Windows 2000 with or without Netware client from Novell work fine.

Help us please.
