Authentication problem netstorage


We are running netstorage on NW6.5 with Extend 5.2. We are seeing problems
with the authentication process. We thought this may have been because of
the netstorage portlet but if we go directly to the netstorage server we
get a Windows username/password challenge - three attempts returns an error
page "Authentication required" with error 401. Now if we set the username
to a fully qualified name with dot notation there is no problem but with
just the user id we get the problems as above.

In the authentication domains the contexts are set for users that we want
to allow access to netstorage. When we use the fully qualified name to
login the context is one that is set to be searched.

Any ideas please?
