PROBLEM: You have users created that do not contain the uniqueID attribute. You are trying to use a web application requiring LDAP authentication. Some users can authenticate and some cannot. The users that do not have the uniqueID attribute cannot authenticate.

SOLUTION: Download the uniqueID Mapper script from here in the Novell Forge. Run it on your NetWare server or from any machine with Perl installed. Requires Net::LDAP.

Now all your users have uniqueIDs!
