Early morning today no user was able to logon to the Netware server.
On the server console i typed " enable login ".Everything was fine again.

I found out that the Login was disbled by a user ( Supervisor equivalent), i found it in Server Logs:

4/26/05 5:44:07 pm  Severity = 0.
1.1.17 Login disabled by user ABC on station 99

How can i  know what program  the user used to disable login and prevent further annoyances like this.
He did n't type the command " disable login " on the server console.

Thanks in advance

    Depends on the VERSION of NetWare. There are tools, like OnSite Admin Pro, can do this.

    Again, version is important, but I think the old upgrade wizard did that too.  Not something the casual user would run.

    I don't know of any common tools that do that, unless someone downloaded some freeware/shareware with that capability.

    Do you know what user it was, and what PC they were using?  (hard to tell from "station 99")  If so, check their PC for rogue software.  You could run something like Belarc Advisor with the report going to the diskette you run it from, and peruse the report at your desk.

    And, of course, the really important question must be asked: Does this user actually NEED that level of privledge?

    I knew the user and station Id, the mac-address i found from Monitor screen.
    I traced the mac-address on our Cisco 6509 and found the exact location of the user's workstation.
    I will check that PC for rogue s/w.
