Problem unlocking Terminal Server 2003 session

Morning all,

I've got Client 4.91 SP3 (just installed this morning) on my Windows
Server 2003 r2 Terminal Server box. It's cured one problem of
proliferating profile folders (<username>.<machinename>.001 etc) but I
still have trouble unlocking an active TS session if it is inactive for
a while.

Essentially, it's the situation you get if you do ctrl-alt-del and
choose 'Lock Workstation'.

If I enter my password with From: eDirectory selected, I get an error
message that an 'Unexpected error occurred while trying to unlock the
workstation' with error code 0xFFFFFA27. If I select From: Windows, all
is fine.

This does not affect initlal login - from the Client32 welcome screen,
all is well, even if I'm reconnecting to an already-running but
previously disconnected session.

It's more an annoyance than a showstopper at the moment, but it will be
a big hinderance once I release the server to userland. Asking them to
change the authentication location each time their session is locked
will be a big ask....

Cheers,

Re: Problem unlocking Terminal Server 2003 session

I had this problem on a server2003 (not in TS mode) box at a clients
office. The quick fix was to enter and NDS server in the client OTHER
than the one it liked to authenticate against. The DS is clean and
consistant between the two servers and the NLM dates match so I have no
clue why it worked.
