Hi,

we've got troubles logging in to NetWare 6.5 server(s) in our production network. there're 3 servers: 2 recently migrated (i.e. they're essentially new servers) NetWare 6.5 SP 1.1 server and 1 NetWare 5.1 server. Both NetWare 6.5 servers have CIFS configured and loaded (CIFS isn't used on NetWare 5.1 server). This is "pure NetWare" network, so CIFS is configured for local authentication. Universal passwords are enabled on organization container level (all server objects and users are in this organization container).

problem: when a user tries to login to the NW65 server via CIFS by entering their username and password, MS client logon dialog appears after a pause with CIFS server name (ie server-w) + slash + their user name (e.g. server1-w\user1) in username field asking to authenticate to the resourse. it happens for both old users and just created test users. eDir is healthy and in sync. NMASMON log grabbed on one of NW65 servers is pasted below.
tried to authenticate from both XP SP1a with Novell Client v4.9 and from clean XP SP1a (same result). tried to remove and recreated login methods (to make sure they are installed correcly) - no visible result.
also tried to find -1642 error on the support site (it seems like there is none that would help in this situation)

any suggestions/guidelines would be greatly appreciated
