I've seen a couple of these issues with no resolution. My user accounts are getting intruder lockouts after a password change if the user doesn't reboot when the change is made.

Vista PC's with 10.1.2 agents, and Linux servers with Edir and Dirxml/LDAP

It looks like the agent login happens after the password change, so I'm confused why the credentials are not working.

Or am I wrong and the Novell client password change is happening after the agents and the PC login?
