SYMPTOMS

If there are more than 255 connections to the NetWare and File and Print Services for NetWare (FPNW) server, SETPASS attempts to change the password of the user whose connection is approximately 255 less than the connection the user actually has.

For example: If the connection is number 498 and SETPASS is run, the SETPASS utility will attempt to change the password of the user whose connection number is approximately 498 - 255.

CAUSE

Libraries for MS-DOS utilities were incorrectly limited to a maximum of 255 user connections.
