The only ID that works is admin from the mac
this is netware 6.5 sp2 with universal password set in imanager
here is the nmasmon log it has three login attempts 1 is a regular user 2
is the same user with context specified the 3rd is a admin successful login
any ideas why this would be because the admin id works perfectly so i
would think the setup is ok
