fffffa4c errors: can't change password

Hi folks:

Netware 6.0 (NMAS 2.3.6, NICI 2.6.7, eDir 8.7.3.4)
Client 4.91 SP2
Password Management for iManager 2.0.2

Some (not all) users are getting fffffa4c errors when trying to change
password after getting notified that their old one expired. So far, we've
been getting past it by either extending their expiration or turning off
expiration all together on their accounts. (For a while, it seemed that
rebuilding their user account helped, but that doesn't seem to work
either.)

The system allows them to change the password but errors out after it's
changed.

I can't find much on this, but what little there is seems to point to
either the NICI or perhaps SAS Service or certificates. We've reinstalled
NICI on both client and server and can't find anything wrong with
certificates.

Any assistance or advice would be appreciated.

Are you sure that fffffa4c is the correct error code ?

Yes. I'm sure.

Unless you want to put the hex designator in front of it 0xfffffa4c.

Re: fffffa4c errors: can't change password

This error is usually given in decimal form i.e. -1460. Try a google search
on NICI and 1460.

Re: fffffa4c errors: can't change password

Yes. I thought of that too. Depending on whether you convert just the
a4c or the fffffa4c to decimal, it's either 2636 or 4294965836. Nothing
comes up on searching those either.

Plus, the 0xfffffa4c is what displays with the error.

I've seen several references to this, but they are all from people like me
who are having the problem and can't find a fix for it.

Thanks!

Re: fffffa4c errors: can't change password

Ah! Ok. I think I understand now. I wasn't translating the hex to a
decimal properly, apparently.

Let me try it again.

Thanks!
