CSA & Novell Client

We run a Novell network and our primary authentication client is the Novell client. I've setup CSAMC v6 and have been tuning for the past couple of days.

I seem to have a problem with the Novell client login script. Whenever I login, the search drives don't map. I get:


LOGIN-LGNWNT32.DLL-890: The specified server is unknown.

LOGIN-LGNWNT32.DLL-430: The following drive mapping operation could not be completed.


The error code was 8884.

I've opened up TCP/524 and TCP/427 to all of our Novell servers with no results. I thought it might be ephemeral ports to I opened them up as well.

This is really frustrating the heck out of me. Does anyone have a solution?

one more thing...disabling the CSA agent resolves the problem.

Then you probably have a rule denying it and not logging. Try audit mode for some of the hosts and make sure it will log deny events.
