Custom Authentication class with two user stores


I have created custom class for authentication. My custom class has two
user stores to authenticate - novell eDirectory and Sun LDAP. I have
created a wrapper over Novell LocalAuthenticationClass. When i'm
authenticating the user with novell eDirectory, if the password is
expired it is returning 5 and redirecting to password expiration
servlet. But when i'm authenticating with SUN LDAP, if the password is
expired it is returning 6 which is authentication failure value.
Both approaches are using Novell LocalAuthenticationClass. Only
difference is the user store. So what can be the reason for this
behaviour?
But one thing is sure that, even on right password Sun Authentication
class is returning 6. This means it is understanding the password
expiration time. But still instead of 5 , it is returning 6. And it is
not redirecting to password expiration servlet.

Because they are two different directories?
