HELP!!!

We are having major NMAS login problems with VPN Client users. We
have tried both v3.8.7 and V3.8.9.

'The VPN Client error reads Failed NMAS Authentication etc etc NMAS Error
FFFFF98C'.

Please note the following errors :

CSAUDIT reports :
Failed to process NMAS request. Failed to authenticate NMAS connection
Error = 0x1

NMASLOG reports :

10: ERROR: -1697 MAF_GetPassword LSM 0x00000007

NRM Audit Log reports :

AUTH Gateway Failed to process NMAS request. Failed to authenticate NMAS
connection. Error = 0x1.

Our server configs are as follows :

NetWare 6.5 SP3
BorderManager 3.8 SP3

Single Tree :

[Root]
O=Site A (Master Replica) - Partition created
O=Site B (Read/Write Replica) - Partition created

Site A contains the BM MASTER, Site B contains the BM SLAVE.

S2S VPN is working fine by the way, although we can't get the
MASTER out of the 'Being Configured' state...

Thanks in advance..

Cheers,

Richard.
