i am having problems with the single sign-on with netware and groupwise
i am running groupwise 6.5 with netware 6.5

i have the post office security set to high and the edirectory authentication option checked.
i have 25 total users. they all have the same groupwise client option under the security settings to enable single sign-on
14 of the users login to netware and are automatically logged into groupwise
there are 11 users who login in to netware and then are prompted to login to groupwise
in console one i compared a user who automatically logged into groupwise with 1 that did not and everything is set exactly the same.
i logged in as a user who is prompted to login to groupwise on the computer of a user who is not prompted and have the same problem of having to login to groupwise so i guess it is not a computer based problem

Make sure the user's GroupWise mailbox is properly associated to their eDirectory object. Find the user Object in ConsoleOne, open up the Properties, go to the GroupWIse tab. Is the user's Mailbox correctly shown?

under the groupwise account tab, it is pointing to correct postoffice. everythin on this page is the same for all users, those for whom the single login work and those for whom the single login does not work

have you tried to rename the c:\windows\system32\nwsso.dll to nwsso.old and reboot. I have found that that is what works for me in our environment. I found it in a TID once a long time ago. I was not able to find now, but it should work.

sorry for the laps in response. i did give it a try and it did not help. the problem is not computer related. i logged in a user that does not get the single login (gets prompted for groupwise password) on a computer whose user does get the single login (does not get prompted for groupwise password) and it still prompts for the groupwise password

ok then. the problem follows the user to different machines. then you need to check the users settings. on tools, options, security on the password tab make sure the box " no password required with eDirectory " is checked. if it is not checked and greyed out then you will need to go through the steps to change the users password. enter the current password and press enter then the next two boxes will activate and also you will then be able to check the box mentioned above. you can use the same password as the new one just enter it twice check the box and press enter and then try the sso again.
