Here's a little tip that might just save you some grief. Sounds simple, unless you forget to do it...

If you don't unload scrsaver.nlm before a lengthy NSS /poolverify then you will find yourself locked out of your server when the screeensaver comes on as it cannot contact DS to verify your identity. The only way round this is a hard reset.

SOLUTION: Unload scrsaver.nlm before proceeding with the poolverify. (Common sense!)
