Im working with mac g5's and I have an xserve running that has the netboot service running on it.  I was adding an image to the netrestore yesterday and now it no longer works.  When I am at the client machine that I want to reimage , I hold down the "N" key to get to the netrestore screen, and thin it just freezes up at the screen or I get an error saying something along the lines of "connection failed   Invalid name or password"....    So I restarted the Netboot service,  and also restarted the server and it still freezes.  Net boot does not prompt me for a name and password so I dont know why that error message pops up. Any ideas would be appreciated.  

its a 10.4.11 server and same os on client.

I figured it out.  I changed the password to the netrestore account on the server.  The .nbi set I made had the original password stored in it.   So I changed the password back and it is now allset.
