CA Unicentre Asset mgr program running as a service on a Windows 2000
server (member server).
Specify the service creditionals (matched domain account/nds account with
simple pwd) to run the service as.

The Asset Mgr program then attempts to connect to a UNC path (CIFS) and
collect data - This fails.

If you login as the same user on the same server and try to map a drive
to CIFS volume - it works OK.

This is also happening to another program that runs as a service.

Netware 6 SP4 (cluster)
CIFS is setup in domain mode.
Windows 2003 domain controllers, Windows 2000 member servers.
