Hi,

I have - i think - pinpointed the problem in my network.
My iFolder, Netstorage and AFP stopped working after
I enabled Universal Passwords.
Either I made a wrong config somwhere along the way or somthing broke.

When I try to login to Netstorage I get errors in the messages log

When I try to login via AFP to the server i get the following errors
from the messages log

Where do I start on looking for solutions PAM/NAM seems to be the
culprit ?
