I have 2 trees. both are running 5.1sp7 with edir 8.7.3 all the way
thru. both trees have NFAP installed with patch. both use domain
authentication, but occasionally we need simple passwords for
non-domain users.

On one tree this works with no problems. On the other tree, I cannot
get any user to authenticate without a domain acct.

Here is the trace for the failure:

having researched this issues extensively for days, I know that -1642
indicates the simple password is invalid. We have no restrictions on
passwords that I'm aware of...every entry I've seen matches in both
trees with one exception.....the working tree CIFS.CFG file says that
all info has been moved to NDS and when looking at server properties in
ConsoleOne, you see several entries for NFAPCIFS. The other tree still
uses the cfg file on all servers.

I have checked the security container, the KAP/WO and everything
matches as it should.

What could I possibly be overlooking? This is a high priority problem
at this point. I'd greatly appreciate any help I can get.
