Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows (IR10)
Microsoft MS15-011 patch
Microsoft KB 3000483
UNC Hardened Access


After applying Microsoft patch MS15-011 / KB Article ID 3000483, users experience intruder lockouts. Intruder lockout has been reported after repeatedly locking and unlocking the workstation, after changing the eDirectory password, and even when simply browsing the Novell mapped drive.

Intruder lockouts occur even if UNC Hardened Access is not configured / enabled.

After removing the patch, the problem is resolved.


This is fixed in Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows (IR10b) or later.
