Error: Password has expired.
Cause: Password expiry is set for security purposes. The password has expired.
Action: Reset the password and try to log in again.
Error: Authentication Failure.
Cause: While enabling subtree search after an upgrade (using novcifs -y yes option), the container level rights are not assigned by default to the proxy user. Due to this user authentication fails after the upgrade.
Action: To resolve this issue, reconfigure cifs using the yast2 novell-cifs or add the contexts using iManager to the cifsctxs.conf file. This way the cifs proxy user gets the required rights over these contexts and authentication will be successful.
