Hi, am running NW6.5SP7 (beta5), I have a PDS setup on the NetWare server
and a Windows 2000 PRO SP4 machine running Novell Client 4.91 SP3 had no
problems joining the domain.

However I'm now testing with a Vista Business machine running Novell Client
for Vista 1.0 and whenever I try to join the domain I get:
-- The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "TESTDOM":
---- Logon failure unknown user name or bad password

I verified the user name and password by disconnecting and rejoining the
Windows 2000 machine using the same one I was trying on the Vista machine,
so it's not that.

I tried putting in a phony domain name and it right away told me it couldn't
find it, so it was definitely finding the TESTDOM PDC running on the NetWare
server prior to asking for the username and pswd.

I didn't install the Novell Client for Windows Vista 1.0 Drivers Update 1 as
nothing listed seemed close to the problem I was having.

I saw other postings referring to TID#3437586 and I made the change shown
there for "Network Security: LAN Manager Authentication level.", didn't help
(even rebooted the Vista machine, verified the setting was OK and tried
joining, same error.

I was thinking that Microsoft KB#940268 would help as my NETSETUP.LOG file
has those exact entries in it, so I tried to create the computer account in
iManager. What I did was copied the account under the PDC that was created
by the Windows 2000 machine by putting the Vista machine name (tried with or
without the trailing $) and changing the name to the Vista machine name....
but this too didn't work (tried both the TID and MSKB at same time, still no

I'm logged in as the default administrator account.

Windows firewall was off towards the end of my testing.

Any ideas why it won't let me join the domain?

Thanks for any idea, cheers
