This article was previously published under Q173118


A user with an expired NetWare password logs on to a computer running Windows NT 3.51 after installing Client Services for NetWare (CSNW) for the first time. After typing his or her Windows NT password and clicking OK, the user is prompted to select a preferred server for NetWare. After selecting the preferred server and clicking OK, the following message is displayed:

   NetWare Network

   Your password on NOVELL_SERVER_NAME has expired.
   Please change it by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del and choosing the Change
   Password button.

This is incorrect. The message should instruct the user to change their NetWare password with the SETPASS utility. The SETPASS utility is a NetWare utility usually found in SYS:PUBLIC and is used to change the Novell user's password. Contact your NetWare administrator for instructions on using the SETPASS utility.


An incorrect message was being called into the message box.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows NT version 3.51.

A supported fix is now available, but has not been fully regression tested and should be applied only to systems experiencing this specific problem. Unless you are severely impacted by this specific problem, Microsoft recommends that you wait for the next Service Pack that contains this fix. Contact Microsoft Technical Support for more information.
