Map errors in login script changing expired password

Server
Clustered NW 6.5 SP2 (IP only, SLP fully configured with scope)

Clients (3 PC tested)
Windows2000 SP4+RollupUpdate+Fix(->Today) IE6 +Fix(->Today)
NW Client 4.91+UpdA+BetaFix(->Today)
ZEN Client 4.01 IR6
SLP (conf. with scope) NMAS (not installed) NICI (2.6.7 installed)
LDAP (contextless ON treeless OFF)

Primary login NW, background login AD (Win2003) same user/password (in
sync manually)

Answering YES when prompted during login to change expired password
(with password successfully changed adn in sync between eDir & AD) the
login script is unable to correctly map all clustered volumes.

Next login with new password is fully correct (every map is OK)

Inspecting login log when errors occurrs I see this:

1.
Every unsuccessfull map gives this error

LOGIN-LGNWNT32.DLL-470: The specified drive mapping is an invalid path:
(ROOT <drive>:=.<clustered_volobj>.<servers_context>:<path>)

In this case the login map command is

MAP ROOT <drive>: = .<clustered_volobj>.<servers_context>:<path>

2.
For test purpose I use map alternative syntax

MAP ROOT <drive>: = <clustered_srvobj>\<volume>:<path>

In this case the error is

Autenticating to server <clustered_srvobj>
LOGIN-LGNWNT32.DLL-430: The following drive mapping operation could
not be completed
[ROOT <drive>:=<clustered_srvobj>\<volume>:<path>]
The error code was 89ff

3.
Home dir is always successfully mapped but in this case login command is

MAP ROOT <drive>: =%HOME_DIRECTORY

4.
Randomly is successfully mapped another clustered volume (command syntax
like number 1) in my company central office (WAN link 34Mb).
The command is located at the end of login script inside an IF MEMBER OF
true test

TIA for any suggestion about this (buggy??) behaviour

Re: Map errors in login script changing expired password

Vincenzo,

What happens if you disable Workstation Manager or remove the ZEN agent in
this scenario?

If that doesn't work, take a look in the client's properties, Advanced
Settings tab. Try testing with the Bad Address Cache reduced or disabled
and then Bad Name Cache...

How does the Bad Address Cache work?

How does the Novell Client Bad Name Cache work?

There was a report a few months back about a similiar issue and the
workaround was to use client 4.90 SP2...

Can you verify and/or be able to provide Novell further info?

Bad Address Cache disabled already tested unsuccessfully.

I will test with ZEN removed (I'm not sure if this config was alredy tested).

The problem is that I cannot disable ZEN or downgrade my 500 PCs to 4.90SP2.
I'm not sure once again but this problem on my PCs appeared for the 1st
time with 4.90 client (SP1 & SP2) so we decided a mass ACU to 4.91 ...

Thanks Tony ... tomorrow I'll continue test with new PCs freshly installed

Re: Map errors in login script changing expired password

Understood. Next step after these tests would be to get a network trace of
said login activity failing...
