Hi,

I have a Netware Server which has NFAP setup and Simple Passwords assigned to user accounts.
Previously I have been able to connect to the Netware server by using the net use command on any windows XP machine. Recently, I have installed vista and find that I am unable to connect the mapped network drive any longer. I am typing the following in the command prompt of the vista machine:

net use z: \\servername\sys

I am now prompted to enter my username and password.

I get the following error.:

System error 86 has occurred.
The specified network password is not correct.

I know the password is correct because I have tested it on a XP machine.

Does anyone know why this might be occuring?

Thanks

1)  What version of NetWare are you running?  Unsupported versions cannot support the modifications to CIFS access Microsoft made with Vista.
2)  What support pack level of NetWare (see 1).)
3)  Have you modified the security settings of Vista for backward-compatibility?  You have to make it support both LanMan and NTLMv2.  Simple passwords are "in the clear" and not supported with NTLMv2-only mode.
4)  You could also consider (if you have a current version of NetWare) using Universal Password, which uses encryption.  I don't know if that would help or not.


As to it working on XP, well, of course it works on XP.  Vista's a "new animal."  It's bound to have bunches of bugs and gotchas.  

Gotcha!
