Article ID: 102800

This article was previously published under Q102800


If you try to access an IBM LAN Server 1.3 NET.ACC that you have directly copied onto a LAN Manager 2.1, 2.1a or 2.2 system, or if you attempt to use the PORTACC utility, you receive an error message:

NET3882 error: The file NET.ACC is not a valid LAN Manager accounts file.


The NET.ACC from one system is not compatible with the other.


Use the MERGEACC utility, part of the LAN Manager Resource Kit, to transfer the user database.

For more information on the IBM LAN Server to Microsoft LAN Manager upgrade, see the white paper "Migrating from IBM LAN Server to Microsoft LAN Manager," 098-37238, available from Microsoft Inside Sales.
