Novell Account Management
Posted on 2004-11-21
We use Novell Account Management 2.1 on our NT domain controllers. We have Edirectory 8.7 running on Netware 5.5, 6.0 & 6.5.
Most of our clients are windows XP and some are Windows 2000 , all part of the NT domain running AM 2.1. Our applications are running on W2K/IIS with integrated authentication. When a user logs in on his/her workstation using the Novell 4.9 client, he is automatically signed on to the NT domain in the background . He then accesses the applications running on IIS and is automatically signed in since he has already authenticated to the domain.
Every few days are users experience a problem when accessing the IIS applications, ie. they are prompted for an id and password for the IIS applications. Although they have signed in to the domain. When we remote console to the PDC , we find that we cannot login on the PDC as well. The only solution is to restart the pdc after which authentication for both IIS apps and Client login is fine.
We have 1 PDC and 1 BDC, both running NT 4.0 , SP6.
Does anyone have a idea on how we can solve this.. ?
