When you use Snacfg.exe to assign an LU to a username, the first attempt completes successfully. When you try to add and assign additional LUs to a user through Snacfg.exe, the command fails with the error message:

User <username> Not Found.

If you attempt to assign the username and LU again using Snacfg.exe it completes successfully, and in both Snacfg.exe and SNA Manager the user shows up twice with DOMAINNAME\<username> with one configured LU for each.


Snacfg.exe does not parse the username entry correctly and only allows a single LU to be assigned to a user.


Snacfg.exe has been fixed and now requires that you either prefix the username to be assigned an LU with the DOMAINNAME or use the /DOMAIN option. You can now successfully assign additional LUs to the same username without creating a new account.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SNA Server 3.0 and 3.0 Service Pack 1 (SP1). This problem was corrected in the latest SNA Server version 3.0 U.S. Service Pack.
