Situation

When users get notified that they only have 'n' remaining logins before they have to change the password, or that they have no more logins left and have to change the password now, that window is displayed. However, it is not presented in the foreground, in front of other windows which might be appearing on the desktop.
 
For example, if you have ZCM running, the agent windows will stay on top of the change notification and the user will never see that there is a need to change the password, resulting in the account being locked after 'n' logins.

Resolution

Apply Novell Client 2 SP2 for Windows (IR3) or later. After applying the fix, the password expiration message appearing in the system tray will flash indefinitely until the user brings it to foreground.
