"Normally" the users login to SLES from Windows workstations, it's working fine .

We have some Macs; our users should connect to server to afp-ressources to get access to some folders.
If the user wasn't logged in on on PC for a while he can connect to SLES the Mac using the Mac "Goto | connect to server...".
But if he just has disconnected from Windows workstation and tries to connect from Mac (after some minutes up to 1/2 hour) he gets an error message (password/loginname wrong).

SLES log "messages" gives an -1688 and -670 error.

Our users are limited to one simultaneous login only. So I tested for one user to increase the limit to two simultaneous logins and - voila - he could connect to the server ressource.

So I think, that after user logout edirectory waits a while until it frees the connection. Is there any possibility to reduce the time (to ca. 5 minutes) so that the users can reuse their login on the other machine in shorter time?

PS:
On Windows workstations at relogin on other PC the novell client seems to reset the flag (?) so this behavior isn't shown.
