Environment

Novell Client for Windows Vista 1.0
CIFS

Situation

Users experience what appears to be random lock-outs of their eDirectory accounts. In a LAN trace, the machine first resolves the NCP shares of a server, and then proceeds to scan for the \IPC$ share via CIFS. If the server happens to have CIFS running, but doesn’t have a simple password configured for the user, authentication fails repeatedly and the user is locked out.
