Hello all.

Already long time on http://wiki.novell.com/index.php/Nw65sp6 it is not
solved Abend which happens at CIFS.NLM on PDC mode. I think this ABEND
occurs seems because of problems with NMAS. Abend.log completely in an
attachment - here a fragment:

Presence SecurityServices 2.04 (NMAS and nmas3132-nw-win not
matters, though as it seems to me, with nmas3132-nw-win ABEND occurs not at
once and with some delay (3-5 min).

Now how to cause this ABEND?

Here NW SBS 6.5 + SP6 + PostFixes. CIFS on PDC mode. We shall tell at once,
that with a logon user the domain, joining Computers to domain, settings for
user Simply Passwords of problems are not present.

But if we try to get the list of users & groups from domain (trying to
create on Windows PC Shared Folder and trying to set permissions for users
of the domain), firstly the list of the user & groups is not possible to
get, and after a while occurs ABEND on a server. Thus in NDS for simplicity
is available only Admin with Simply Password and the logon in the domain
from this account is successful.

At this time we can see strange errors in dstrace.log started in a mode:
DSTRACE -ALL +NMAS +TAGS +TIME. In an attachment files for the given
mistakes are resulted at work on PC with Windows XP Pro (SP2 + all fixes)
and with Windows98SE (All fixes).

If at creation Shared Folder on XP (on Win98 it is impossible) we, without
search, shall add a name of the user (in our case it admin from NT Domain)
that all works normally. I have PDC working under Samba, and there all works

Also, on testing (1 year ago) CIFS PDC on NW6 SP5 all was ok and Domain
users & groups list at WorkStation was displayed normally.

Sorry my poor English.
