If the SID of the Windows user account has been changed since when
NICI was last used by this same user, these errors can occur as a
result of the security applied to the NICI user directory on the local
workstation. This condition can occur due to mechanisms such as
ZENworks Dynamic Local User (DLU) deleting and re-creating a Windows
account with the same name (but a different SID), or by mechanisms such
as Microsoft Sysprep or other tools which explicitly and intentionally
change the SID of existing user accounts.
If those conditions apply, or the SID is being changed due to other circumstances, the best solution may be enabling the NICI "EnableUserProfileDirectory" configuration as described in the referenced documents. If the SID on the Windows account is not being changed, the described errors may be due to an old or corrupted NICI installation, which can be addressed as follows:
Verify that the latest version of the Novell Client is installed, which will contain the latest version of NICI.
