This article was previously published under Q172496
You are running the SNA Windows 95 Client configuration utility. On the Advanced tab, you select or clear the "Use Windows NT domain password" check box. If you then click a different tab, the change you made to the "Use Windows NT domain password" check box disappears. If you look at the Advanced tab again, you will see that the "Use Windows NT domain password" check box has reverted to its previous state.
The Advanced page of the Windows 95 SNA Client configuration utility re- reads the registry after having been previously initialized. It then drops the change to the "Use Windows NT domain password" check box.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SNA Server version 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. For information on obtaining this Service Pack, query on the following word in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (without the spaces):
S E R V P A C K
To reproduce this problem:
- Start the SNA Windows 95 Client configuration utility and click the Advanced tab.
- Change the "Use Windows NT domain password" check box to a different status; that is, if it is checked, clear it, and if it is cleared, select it.
- Click the About tab.
- Click the Advanced tab again. The "Use Windows NT domain password" check box status will have reverted to the selected state.
With the fix applied, the client configuration utility does not re-read the registry for its settings after being initialized the first time.
