Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 6
Admin user that is attempting to unlock the console has a
default NMAS login sequence other than the NDS login
ERROR: "The console could not be unlocked. The username or
password is invalid" even when both username and password are
This behavior is the same regardless of whether the option to
enable Universal Password is turned on or not.
The issue has been reported to engineering.
In the meantime you can change the default sequence for every
server operator that needs to unlock the screensaver. It's possible
to specify either "No login sequence" or the "NDS" login
sequence. Notice that this only means that when this user wants to
login with a Novell client with another sequence, he needs to
specify it in the NMAS tab.
If the user you are trying to authenticate with is configured to
use Universal Password, you could be affected by a different issue,
the one described in KB 3924024
. In this case, you can enter the
load scrsaver enable universal
to instruct scrsaver.nlm to use the Universal Password instead of
the traditional NDS password.
