Hi Hougaard Flemming,

I checked on TSM server and there is a admin id created for that problematic 
If I do: "q admin <xxxxxx> f=d" result is:

 Administrator Name: XXXXXXXX
     Last Access Date/Time: 04/19/2004 11:03:40
    Days Since Last Access: 2
    Password Set Date/Time: 02/20/2004 10:43:05
   Days Since Password Set: 61
     Invalid Sign-on Count: 10
                   Locked?: Yes
                   Contact: XXXX AT infinitynetwork DOT com
          System Privilege:
          Policy Privilege:
         Storage Privilege:
         Analyst Privilege:
        Operator Privilege:
   Client Access Privilege:
    Client Owner Privilege: XXXXXXXXXXXXX
    Registration Date/Time: 02/20/2004 10:43:05
 Registering Administrator: ADMIN
          Managing profile:
Password Expiration Period:

As you can see Account is locked. I noticed invalid sign-on counter in server 
activity log went to 10 for that nodename (limit is 8); and I asked customer 
why is that and she said: 'I was putting wrong password'. I queried node-name 
but Invalid sign-on counter was 0 and node was not locked. That was little bit 
strange for me, but I didn't know what to do. I didn't even think that I should 
check admin id.

So, that is how invalid sign-on counter works, it increases counter for Admin 
id but not for Nodename. I would NEVER guessed something like this; LIVE AND 

If you are saying that Admin id is necessary for web client to work that could 
be possible solution for my problem. I will let you know.

Hi Joe

When Tivoli/IBM made the NetWare Client 5.2.x and later I presume they
got an "brainfart" ;o) - suddenly you are forced to have a user with
owner privilegies to the account to use the web-interface - I quote: "If
you plan to use a Web client, you must have an administrative user ID
with system privilege, policy privilege, client access authority, or
client owner authority. When a new node is registered, an administrative
user ID is automatically created for the node. By default, this node has
client owner authority."

Butbutbut... I will bet, that you typed in "NONE" as user id when you
created the node right? - that won't do anymore... why? ask Tivoli/IBM -
I did, noone could give me a good answer...

For my own situation... I have about 1000 - 1300 different nodes, which
are strictly separated - so I'm forced to have 1000 - 1300
Administrative ID's on my server... is that clever? Tivoli/IBM think

Another thing... with these administrative rights - the seperate node
can go in and view the activitylog through the commandline... not smart
either - but what can we do ;o)

So create such an account (you can try to use your admin account), and
you will be able to use the webinterface at once...

Best regards

Emne: Web client on Netware ANS2613

Hi All,

We installed Netware client couple of months ago. During install we
tested restore also. Worked OK.
Now they needed some files and they cannot connect from web GUI to TSM
client on Netware server.
Backup works OK, restore works fine from Netware server (TSM command

When they click on restore in gui, popup window comes up. We put login
and pwd and we got ANS2613S "Protocol error occured in communication
between browser and client". I'm guessing this is a network problem ,
not TSM, but I don't know how to troubleshhot this.

TSM Server on Windows
