The problem has yet bee seen.

The Novel client seem to issue more commands then standard NT login, so
samba 2.0.7 that has a limited unsupported PDC compatibility will fail
to respond and the Novel client with it.

TNG has a better support for most RPCs and domain facilities so the
Novell client is happy.
