Environment

Novell NetWare 6.5
OpenSSH Suite

Situation

User in deep context fails to login to SFTP / SSH
Error in sys:etc\ssh\logs\sshd.log: error: authorize_sftp(user5) Failed to create path context to SERV1-OES/SYS:/ rc: -632, errno 7, h_errno: 997, clienterrno: 0
Users in shallow contexts can login to SFTP, but users in deep contexts (approximately 5 - 6 levels deep) cannot, even though the eDirNameContext is set to search there.

Resolution

A fix to this issue was made in LIBC.NLM. For use on top of NetWare 6.5 SP5, install a post-SP5 LIBC update. The current one available is NWLIB6H.EXE, available through https://support.novell.com/filefinder. This fix is also part of NetWare 6.5 SP6.
