Novell Client 2 SP 3 for Windows 7 64 bit and the inability to log into the desktop for a "NEW" user

My issue is that If the username exist already in Windows 7, I can log into Novell and the Window 7 desktop will load

HOWEVER if the username doesn't exist and I attempt to log in, I'm able to log into Novell Client

BUT I get prompted with another window titled “Log on to this Computer” with a check box “Change your Windows password to match your Novell Password after success login”.
1) I insert the password and
2) check the box

The Result is a line that says “The Local computer username or password is not valid”

Any suggestions would be most appreciated
