Hey you peski guys and gals....

This one has been baffling me for a while.... in fact it's been driving me
mental for a while!

I have a 3 nodes in a cluster. All running NW 6.5 sp5. NOw 2 of these are
new to the cluster, and new installs, one of them is an older install, but
all the same they are all at same SP level.

Now on my older node, I can access any volume i like from a mac using a
simple password.

From the 2 new nodes I can't. On the Mac it gives me the error:

"Connection Failed
Unknown User, incorrect password, or login is deisabled. Please retype the
name and password or conatct teh server administrator"

Now I know that the user credentials are correct as they work if this volume
is mounted on the older server.

I have the same lines of text in the ctxs.cfg on all 3 servers.

Now when I turn on the afp log, I get the following output...

Wed May 17 10:06:08 2006
: Thread ID = 278, Logging Turned On

: Thread ID = 257, Starting ProxyLoginCont
Wed May 17 10:06:43 2006
: Thread ID = 257, authenticated from LSMAFP is 0 <0>

Now I presume that the last line of this, with "LSMAFP is 0 <0>" is what is
stopping me logging in.... but what the hell does this mean and how can I
rectify.

I have updated the Login Methods, from sys\public\nmas\afp3 folder, but this
firstly told me that it was already installed. So I deletd it and recreated
it. One thing is though that instead of it being called LSMAFP in the login
sequences is it called Macintosh Native File Access... Don't know if that
makes a difference though.

Anyway, if anyone has any ideas of how to rectify this please let me know.

Also though I tried to go down the Universal Password route, but just got to
bogged down in LDAP so would prefer just to fix the simple password method.

Thanks in advance...
